Vucic: New government by end of August

July 31,2020                 

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on Friday that a new government would be formed by the end of August after the newly elected parliament meets for the first time in the next few days.

Speaking to reporters after a meeting of the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) Presidency, Vucic said that the ruling party has to know that people want changes in both parliament and the government with more young people who are capable of tackling serious problems.

“We also discussed future coalition partners and the views expressed at the presidency and by MPs are different. There are four options and all four won votes. Go with the Socialists (Ivica Dacic’s Socialist Party of Serbia – SPS) and the minorities, go with (SPAS leader Aleksandar) Sapic and minorities, go with the Socialists, Sapic and minorities and go with the minorities alone. All four options had strong support,” Vucic said.

The SNS leader said he would launch talks within the party after parliament is constituted in order to form a government by August 25. He said the government would be formed two and a half months before the deadline set in the constitution.
