The newly resigned Prime Minister of Sarajevo Canton, Suad Zeljkovic said on Sunday that a new government would be formed in Bosnia in 20-day as: “the PM’s resignation, means the government’s resignation”.

Zeljkovic resigned on Saturday following the four-day-demonstrations, which saw several thousand protestors take to the streets.

Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Zeljkovic said on Sunday that he didn’t resign as a result of the fire that damaged a section of the presidency building in Bosnia’s capital.

“I have never been scared,” he said. “There are the same political groups behind all those protests,” he added.

Remarking that there are no starving children, but criminals on the streets of Bosnia, Zeljkovic said, “These people are organized and high on drugs.”

“They were offered payment; Molotov cocktails and stones were transported for them,” he said.

The protests, that started in the northeastern city of Tuzla and spread to other cities including the capital Sarajevo, Bihać, Zenica and Mostar, have been dubbed the 'Bosnian Spring' by the Bosnia-Herzegovina media.
