The rally comes after President Vucic earlier warned that he would not meet the demands of protesters.
Media in Serbia reported that President Tomislav Nikolic made the decision for run for another term late on Wednesday despite the fact that the leadership of his Progressive Party has already proposed party chief and Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic as its candidate for the upcoming presidential elections.
While most political parties in Serbia, including the ruling Progressives, have yet to name their candidates for April's presidential elections, Sasa Jankovic officially launched his presidential campaign on Tuesday.
"In the name of the citizens, I want to be the president of Serbia as the protector of all of us," Jankovic said.
