While Serbian media speculate on who will become the next prime minister, Aleksandar Vucic reiterated today that he has not reached a decision about his successor.
Vucic, who is current premier, was elected for president in April elections, will take the oath on Wednesday.
Foreign Ninister Ivica Dacic rebuffed the claims that he would be Vucic’s successor, as did the Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic. Ana Brnabic, Public Administration Minister, was among those “seen” in PMs post.
“We still haven’t properly discussed the new prime minister. The day after tomorrow is for me very important and I want it to be festive. After that, the SNS, the party that I am still the leader of, will meet to discuss this issue”, Vucic said As a head of state, Vucic could withdraw from party head position.
“Then, we will have talks with our coalition partners”, he went on.
Vucic told journalists that “everything will happen in accordance with the schedule and dates”, as he had “had promised”.
Vucic also announced that his inauguration planned for June 23, and that it would be attended by a number of foreign state and government heads including almost all statesmen from the neighboring countries.
“We will have the greatest attendance of the presidents, heads of governments and foreign ministers so far… I expect almost everybody from the region to come because the peace and stability were the part of my policy in the region”, he said.
Vucic specified that his inauguration would be attended by statesmen from Slovenia, Hungary, Romania, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, FYR Macedonia, Greece and Austria, explaining that “the policy of peace and stability” was important for economic development.
