Aleksandar Vucic, Serbia’s President and the leader of the ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) said on Monday he would begin talks about forming a new government as of Tuesday, the FoNet news agency reported.
Vucic headed SNS’ list in the June 21 general elections and scored a sweeping victory, securing an absolute majority in the Parliament and could form a new cabinet without any of two other parties that crossed the reduced threshold of three percent, and several minority political organisations which had mandates based on a natural threshold.
However, Vucic said he would try to include as many other parties as possible into the government.
On Tuesday, he will talk to the representatives of the Party of Democratic Action from Sandzak and the Albanian Democratic Alternative.
The next day, Vucic will meet Muamer Zukorlic, the head of the Party for Justice and Reconciliation and Istvan Pastor, the leader of the Alliance of Vojvodina Hungarians.
Next Friday, Vucic will talk with Aleksandar Sapic, the leader of the Serbian Patriotic Alliance, while on July 20, he will meet Ivica Dacic, the head of Vucic long-time coalition partner, the Socialist Party of Serbia (SPS).
The last meeting is scheduled for July 21, a month after the elections were held, with his SNS leadership.
