The President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic, said that he would not agree to the requests that Sunday be declared a non-working day in Serbia.
– It can’t be a non-working week. I will not. Whoever wants not to work on Sundays, let him go to some other countries – he stated.
Vucic said that we cannot afford that and that we should be proud that “we should do more”.
Montenegro introduced a non-working Sunday last year, although in the corona crisis, officials announced several times that it would be abolished.
Previously, the European Union left it to the member states to arrange the opening hours of the stores based on their traditional, cultural and religious needs.
Thus, the doors of consumer stores were closed on Sunday in nine countries, including France, Germany, Austria and Poland.
The capital of Austria is known for the fact that everything is closed on Sundays. In Slovenia, shops also do not work on the last day of the week and during holidays, Srbija Danas reports.
