BELGRADE -- Milan Marković, a former cabinet minister, has resigned as MP and decided to no longer be a member of the Democratic Party (DS), B92 learned on Friday.

This came a day after the DS Main Board announced that all party members who in the past served as ministers should resign as MPs.
The former minister of state administration and local self-government and long-time DS member was also the subject of a complaint filed by the Anti-Corruption Agency.
The case concerned a yacht which Marković did not list in his property report. He responded to the charges by saying that the yacht was a present to his wife made by her father.
Previously, other former ministers from the ranks of the DS returned their mandates in the Serbian parliament, including Oliver Dulić, Snežana Marković, and former PM Mirko Cvetković.
Unlike them, Dušan Petrović announced that he had no intention of resigning as MP, and accused the DS of "having no policy of its own".
