SNS leader Tomislav Nikolić added that the changes would reduce the number of seats in the parliament from 240 to 125.

"Constitutional change should half the number of MPs, make the representatives the holders of the parliamentary seats, and prevent the simultaneous holding of executive and legislative offices," the SNS leader told daily Blic.

"If someone has another proposal, we can discuss it. But I cannot just sit and listen to promises to streamline the state administration," he was quoted as saying.

Nikolić said that the rally set for February 4 should "change the ruling majority's attitude to the opposition," and added that the goal was not to change the authorities at a street protest.

The SNS leader pointed out that "the government does not want elections before 2012," but that he was convinced that the economic problems in the country and the situation in Kosovo meant that "the citizens will not be able to sit idly by and watch the ship sink, but will take to the streets to ask for elections."
