Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic is set to join President Aleksandar Vucic’s ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS), Belgrade daily Blic reported on Tuesday.
Brnabic told Blic that she hopes the SNS accepts her, that she likes and respects the party and that she will discuss her membership with Vucic in the next few weeks.
Later on Tuesday, Vucic said he would be delighted if Brnabic who "I love and respect" decided to join the SNS.
“The SNS is a party which is not afraid to change, to learn, to give people a chance even if they aren’t members as long as that makes sense for Serbia’s progress. The SNS supported me and trusted me when many others would not have. I can say today that I love and respect this party and that I hope they will accept me as a part of them,” she said.
Blic said that Brnabic is just one of the new faces promised by party leader Vucic at a recent session of the party main board.
