Selakovic: Departement shuffle or division possible

7/19/2013 11:31:00 AM
BELGRADE - Serbian Justice Minister Nikola Selakovic says parties in the ruling coalition could trade departments or even split up some ministries. "Anything that will contribute to the work of the government, greater efficiency and the political climate in the country is on the table," Selakovic told the daily Vecernje Novosti.

 A leading official of the top party in the ruling coalition - the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS), Selakovic says neither this nor any future government must allow itself to be lulled by initial successes, because Serbia needs constant activity and reforms. 
 The ruling coalition is led by the SNS, the Socialist Party of Serbia and the United Regions of Serbia (URS). Selakovic, who is seen as a minister sure to survive the reshuffle, says this is the first time in the Serbian multi-party system that the principle of political responsibility has been introduced, meaning that an official who has not achieved the expected results must be replaced. Asked what will happen if the URS stands by its position that all their government members performed well, Selakovic said he does not think anyone can go before the public and say: "All of my people did a good job." 
 "I do not know what minute percentage of citizens could support that. I do not support it," he said. Photo Tanjug, R. Prelic, archive
