Far right party wants removal of Serb President

A nationalist party has launched on Saturday a campaign for the dismissal of Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic for what it claims is a violation to the constitution, according to a party official.

Miljan Damjanovic, an official of the far right Serbian Radical Party, cites as one of the reasons for the campaign the university degree President Nikolic allegedly bought.

After Nikolic was elected president of Serbia on Aug. 31, 2012, he was accused of buying a Master's Degree from the faculty of management at University of Novi Sad, without attending a class or taking an exam.

Damjanovic also accuses Nikolic of favoring the foundation led by his wife Dragica Nikolic, of which the center is in the Serbian presidential building.

Miljan Damjanovic says the party plans to collect 30,000 signatures, which would intiate a procedure in the Serbian Assembly for the removal of Tomislav Nikolic.

The Serbian Radical Party, or SRS, has no presence in the National Assembly.
