Serbian Prime Minister-Designate Ana Brnabić announced on Sunday (25 October) that the Serbian president’s secretary-general Nikola Selaković would become the country’s new foreign minister.

Speaking after a session of the Serbian Progressive Party’s presidency, Brnabić said that  Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin and Interior Minister Nebojša Stefanović would switch places.

Gordana Čomić, a former MP of the Democratic Party, is expected to take up the position of minister in charge of human and minority rights and social dialogue.

Two ministerial posts – of which one has no portfolio – will be granted to the Socialists, though the choice still has to be made.

Darija Kisić Tepavčević, a member of the government’s COVID-19 Crisis Headquarters has been nominated as labour, employment, veterans and social affairs minister.

Brnabić said the cabinet would be full of energy and prepared for all challenges. Serbian Progressive Party leader and President Aleksandar Vučić has said that the cabinet will ensure political continuity. Parliament is expected to elect the new government on 28 October.
