A Serbian ruling party MP said on Thursday that the new government should be pro-European.

“I think it’s time that I was in the excutive authorities. I think it’s time for a pro-European Serbian government,” Dragan Sormaz told N1’s Studio Live show. He refused to speculate whether he would be part of the diplomatic service or the defense sector. Sormaz heads Serbia’s delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.

Sormaz said he is 158th on the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) list of candidates for the April 3 parliamentary elections and added that his political engagement depends on the party.

Earlier, Sormaz said in a Twitter post that the government should be made up only of people prepared to impose sanctions on Russia, nationalize the majority Russian-owned Serbian Oil Industry (NIS), “throw out 90 percent of the embassy over espionage”, “shut down the Russian spy center in nis” and sign statements saying they will work on Serbia’s quick accession to the European Union and NATO.

“I don’t think that forming the government is a problem. What I wrote could be done without the two or three Rusophile parties that won seats in parliament,” he said.
