Breaking news – six months after the elections the new Serbian government is formed

President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić has announced new government ministers. This is the fourth consecutive government led by Ana Brnabić.

The exclusion of Zorana Mihajlović from the list of new ministers, who was first the minister of construction and then the minister of construction and infrastructure for nearly a decade, a long-standing opponent of the Socialist Party of Serbia (SPS) and held in high esteem by the United States, comes as a huge surprise. The outgoing agriculture minister and former deputy prime minister Branislav Nedimović, the outgoing trade and telecommunications minister Tatjana Matić, the economy minister Andjelka Atanasković, the health minister Zlatibor Lončar (who was in that position for almost a decade), as well as the sports and youth minister Vanja Udovičić (also, a government member for ten years) will not be re-appointed either.

The outgoing defence minister Nebojsa Stefanovic will no longer be a government minister, which is a foregone conclusion considering his heated clashes with Vučić over the investigation into the Veljko Belivuk criminal gang.

Below is the list of new ministers:

Ana Brnabić, Prime Minister

Ivica Dačić, Foreign Minister and Deputy Prime Minister

Miloš Vučević, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence

Siniša Mali, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance
