Serbian President Steps Down As Party Leader Amid Protests O

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic on Saturday announced his resignation as the leader of the ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS).

This is following widespread anti-government protests triggered by two mass shootings that claimed the lives of 18 people.

While Vucic will continue to serve as head of state, he emphasized the need for a new approach to unite the country.

And also to address the concerns of the citizens.

In a display of support for President Vucic, tens of thousands of people, including those from neighboring Kosovo, Montenegro, and Bosnia, gathered in Belgrade to rally behind him following the anti-government demonstrations sparked by the recent shootings.

Another protest was scheduled for later, highlighting the ongoing public discontent.
