Earlier on Saturday, Vucic signed a proposal to dismiss Defense Minister Bratislav Gasic and sent it to the National Assembly, his cabinet confirmed.

This is expected to be one of the items on the agenda of the extraordinary sitting scheduled for Monday.

On Friday, Vucic said he would dismiss Gasic by the end of the month, and present a new minister after 15 days.

In early December, Vucic said Gasic would be sacked from his cabinet for making an offensive sexist remark aimed at a B92 reporter.
