Science, Education and Sport Minister Predrag Sustar told reporters on Thursday, a day after supporters of the curriculum reform demanded his resignation at a string of protest rallies across the country, that he was not thinking of stepping down.
Asked to comment on demands for his resignation, Sustar told the press outside the government headquarters: "I don't feel comfortable and I understand people, but I am not thinking of resigning because there's still a lot of work to be done."
The minister said that if at any point he or the head of the task force on the curriculum reform, Boris Jokic, were seen as obstacles, they would resign. "This reform is crucial," he said, adding that the reform was a long-term project involving generations of people from all walks of life. "There's no monopoly here."
