Vladimir Djukanovic, a ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) legislator said on Thursday he suspended all his party’s activities because he did not want “to fight for those who Aleksandar Vucic “directly marked for all impudences and who continue with that practice,” the Belgrade Blic daily reported.
In an article in the daily, Djukanovic said Vucic, the head of state and of the ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS), might think about him in as well, but “let him tell that in the face and I’m immediately out."
"It makes me sick that Vucic and us who honestly love SNS must justify their nastiness and impair own credibility in the media,” Djukanovic wrote. “The worst of all is that they never suffer consequences for that, and when the dust settles they continue with the same practice and make us look like idiots."
He added he loved Vucic primarily as a human being, but that “it came to the point of no return."
"The public has to clearly see if Vucic will be decisive about people he criticised or if they are stronger than the whole system, while the rest of us seem like fools," Djukanovic said.
According to him, "those mentioned must be fired as soon as possible and publicly named for what they did."
"Some may even be arrested, but the prosecutors have the final word on that," Djukanovic said.
He believes that SNS “must start with the purging of those criticised.”
"Until then I suspend all my party activities even if I won’t be a member aver again and even if I’m expelled," Djukanovic wrote.
