Serbian President Steps Down As Party Leader Amid Protests Over Mass Shootings

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.
