BELGRADE  – Ivica Dacic, Serbia’s first deputy prime minister and leader of the Socialist Party of Serbia (SPS), said he had called Vucic for talks on a future cooperation, underscoring that he would not like to stay in power with the Progressives at any price, but only if they shared the same strategic objective.

In a live broadcast on N1, he said there was no need for a snap parliamentary election in 2016.

However, it will be up to Vucic and the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) to decide on the election depending on whether the situation is stable at that moment, he noted.

Dacic described his relations with Vucic as good, their cooperation as professional, underscoring he had not taken any move without coordination with the prime minister.

“I have no reason to topple him (Vucic), as I think that we have so far done everything right,” Dacic stressed.
