The current Prime Minister Ana Brnabić still has a slight advantage over her competitors in performing the most important official function in Serbia.
However, bookmakers have now included the governor of the National Bank of Serbia (NBS), Jorgovanka Tabaković, in the list of eligible candidates who has better chances of being appointed PM than the favourites Miloš Vučević, Branislav Nedimović and Siniša Mali.
Jorgovanka Tabaković, the current governor of the National Bank of Serbia, is one of the most serious candidates for the position of Prime Minister in the new government. The latest quotas not only reduce Ana Brnabić’s chances of steering the government, but cite Tabaković as a clear favourite.
According to the latest forecast of the Meridian betting shop, Ana Brnabić is the closest being appointed PM second time.
Immediately behind her is Jorgovanka Tabaković, even though she claims that she is not thinking of changing jobs.

“Fortunately, before the election, I didn’t think about this opportunity. The results Aleksandar Vučić has achieved are too demanding for a prime minister to uphold. Each of us should accept the role in which we can give our best. For me, the most important thing is for the government and the NBS to jointly conduct the state economic policy, which must be in the long-term interest of the citizens and economy of Serbia,” she said.
The current mayor of Novi Sad, Miloš Vučević, is third on the list of potential prime ministers. Although his quota among bookmakers has increased from 2.5 to 2.8, he still has a great chance of becoming the head of the Serbian government. He is followed by the outgoing Minister of Agriculture Branislav Nedimović. The current Minister of Finance Siniša Mali, on the other hand, has been one of the most serious candidates so far, but in the days following the elections he dropped considerably in the forecast.
The epidemiologist Darija Kisić Tepavčević, with quota of 1.25, also has good chances of becoming the Prime Minister, just like Milan Krkobabić (1.05), Ivica Dačić (1.1), Zorana Mihajlović (1.25), Siniša Mali (1.3) and Aleksandar Antić (1.6).
The former Minister of Culture Ivan Tasovac (quota 2.8) and the director of the Official Gazette of the Republic of Serbia, Jelena Trivan (3.2) also stand a good chance of being appointed government ministers.
