A massive rally, part of Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic’s Future of Serbia campaign, will be held in Belgrade on Friday night. The event is expected to bring tens of thousands of people from across the country.

The head of state and also leader of the ruling SNS party, Aleksandar Vucic, called for unity and support for important issues, particularly having in mind the forthcoming settlement of Kosovo issue.

Among the speakers expected to address the rally-goers will be Prime Minister Ana Brnabic, Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic, president of Bosnia and Herzegovina collective presidency MIlorad Dodik, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Syjarto and others.

Tens of thousands of people marched against the government of President Vucic last Saturday, in what the opposition aimed to be the largest in a series of anti-government rallies that have been held weekly for five months. Demonstrators met outside Parliament building, before marching past government headquarters and on to Parliament Square.

During the march, opposition leaders took to the front of the rally, carrying a banner “All as One”. The Interior Ministry claimed 7,500 people turned out for the protest, but organizers, Alliance for Serbia, said around 35,000 people had marched in anti-government protest.
