Serbia's president Vucic nominates PM Ana Brnabic for second term

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic on Monday nominated Prime Minister Ana Brnabic to remain in office for another term, news wires reported. “I think this was a good choice,” Vucic, who is head of the ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS), told a news conference.

An SNS-led alliance won the parliamentary elections on 21 June by a landslide, securing 188 deputies in the 250–seat parliament, and the approval of Brnabic’s new Cabinet is largely a formality. Parliament is expected to reconvene in the coming days.

Brnabic, 45, a technocrat who frequently described Vucic as her “boss”, took the post in 2017, as the country’s first female and first openly gay head of government. In October 2019 she joined the SNS.
