Serbian Parliament Speaker Ivica Dacic said on Thursday that MPs won’t debate changes to the expropriation law which President Aleksandar Vucic sent back, adding that it will be put up for public debate.

Vucic said on Wednesday that he was sending back the law following two weekends of road block protests.

Dacic told the pro-regime TV Pink that he doesn’t know if the law will ever be amended after the government also withdrew it from procedures. He added that the government also submitted draft amendments to the referendum law. According to the Speaker, MPs will debate the issue at a session of Friday. Dacic said that the referendum law does not cover the January 16 referendum on the constitutional amendments.
