Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on Tuesday that his Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) would form the new government with the Socialist Party of Serbia (SPS) and the SPAS coalition.
Speaking at a news conference after a meeting of the SNS Presidency, Vucic said that most of Prime Minister Designate Ana Brnabic’s new cabinet had been decided but that there were dilemmas about two or three ministers.
He said that the cabinet would include officials from the three parties that won seats in parliament at the June 21 elections – the SNS, SPS and SPAS – and some minority parties.
Vucic said that the names of all the new ministers would be disclosed after another meeting of his party’s presidency on Sunday.
The only name that Vucic mentioned was that of outgoing Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic who, he said, would take over as parliament speaker.
Socialist Party of Serbia (SPS) leader Ivica Dacic said on Tuesday evening that the post of parliament speaker was an honor for every politician and thanked President Aleksandar Vucic for nominating him to head the legislative body. He said that “only a united Serbia can face the challenges of the coming period”.
Vucic said that parliamentary elections would be held in April 2022 at the latest.
