The new government of Serbia was elected Wednesday 26 October. Its priorities include investment in energy infrastructure and membership in the EU.
The new Cabinet will be headed by Ana Brnabic who was also the prime Minister during previous terms.
It will consist of 28 ministers, most from the conservative Serbian Progressive Party or its ally, Socialists.
One hundred fifty-seven out of 250 parliament deputies supported the government. In a debate, opposition deputies voted against new Cabinet. They claimed that the government was too big and expensive.
Brnabic stated Wednesday in her address to parliament that the government plans to invest EUR12 million in energy projects, including pipelines for oil or power generation.
She said that the country’s strategic destination was also the European Union.
Serbia, a candidate for the EU must resume relations to Kosovo, its former south provincial, and align its foreign policies with the bloc, if it wants to join.
Serbia condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine at the United Nations, but refused to join sanctions on Moscow despite EU officials asking Serbia.
