Serbian PM, Ana Brnabic said at the Kopaonik Business Forum today that government reshuffle was an option, adding that, if the reshuffle did happen, it would be carried out based on the results government ministers had achieved.
Brnabic also said that, just like the previous governments, this one would also evaluate the results of its members, underlining that government ministers were willing to step down providing that it would contribute to the better and more effective government.
Serbian Foreign Minister and the First Deputy PM, Ivica Dacic spoke on Wednesday about the same topic, saying that he was not against a reshuffle and adding that “no minister will remain in their position forever”.
Minister of Construction, Transportation and Infrastructure, Zorana Mihajlovic said that she had nothing against the reshuffle, providing it made the government more effective.
Mihajlovic also commented on the media reports that Goran Vesic, who is rumoured to be a candidate for Belgrade mayor, could be appointed to one of the top positions in the Ministry of Infrastructure, and said: “We did not talk about it. I think we should assess the results first”.
A few days ago, the Danas daily reported that there had been unofficial talk about the government reshuffle, and that certain government ministers could be replaced with some of the candidates that ran in Belgrade election. “However, it is Aleksandar Vucic who has the last say in this matter”, the newspaper concluded.
