SNS official Marko Đurić said that Prime Minister Mirko Cvetković’s statement was hypocritical because the ruling parties “embezzle more than a billion of euros” a year through public procurement.

The teachers’ unions have suspended classes, demanding increase in salaries.

“Rally will be peaceful”

“Serbia needs political changes and to stop borrowing money,” the SNS official pointed out and called upon the citizens to come to the protest rally in Belgrade on February 5.

He explained that the SNS would “do everything to hold the rally in a peaceful and democratic atmosphere”, but he stressed that police bore the biggest responsibility for the safety.

“The SNS will speak to representatives of the Serbian police (MUP) on an operative level so people and property would not be jeopardized,” Đurić pointed out.

When asked whether SNS leader Tomislav Nikolić would meet with Police Director Milorad Veljović, he said that he would but could not say exactly when.

The SNS officials have announced earlier that they will not accept Interior Minister Ivica Dačić's invitation to discuss security at the rally and that they will speak to Veljović instead.
