The prime minister said Gasic would not resign, but that he would propose the dismissal, and then the issue would be discussed in the parliament.

He said he would attend the entire parliamentary debate on Gasic’s dismissal, and then, after 15 days, stand before lawmakers to present the new minister of defense and defend the proposal.

The defense minister stirred a storm of criticism after an insulting comment he made to a female reporter.
