Party marks anniversary, Vučić talks "modernization"
NIŠ -- Serb Progressive Party (SNS) President Aleksandar Vučić said on Sunday that Serbia was "more important than all the political parties."
The most important goal for the SNS was "the country's progress and modernization," according to him.
"Serbia comes first, and then all the political parties and conflicts," he said at a convention entitled For a Progressive Serbia, which was held in Niš to celebrate the 5th anniversary since the party, an offshoot of the Serb Radicals (SRS), was formed.
The economic measures were not adopted because it was thought someone would like them, but because of the economic indicators were much worse that what "you can even imagine," he explained.
Vučić wants to do what is good for Serbia and stresses that he is happy with the changes in Serbia.
"People believe you when you ask for something and they know you are not asking for yourself, but to make the country healthy again," he said at the convention.
The convention in Belgrade on Monday will have Serbian President and SNS founder Tomislav Nikolić as one of the speakers, he noted.
He said Nikolić and him had been and still were the best of friends and were working excellently together.
Vučić stated he was grateful to Nikolic for siding with the government and supporting the measures for the country's economic recovery.
