The issue of who will become Serbia’s new prime minister will be discussed after the presidential elections, says Zorana Mihajlovic.

Mihajlovic is one of deputy prime minister in the cabinet of PM Aleksandar Vucic, who is running for president, and an official in his ruling SNS party, B92 reports.

Asked whether any of the party’s coalition partners might become the next head of government, she said it was “important that it is a person who, beside being passionate and energetic, also wants to continue on the road the government has started, despite the criticism.”

According to the sources InSerbia has in ruling coalition, the next Serbian PM will probably be Nebojsa Stefanovic.

Mohajlovic told state broadcaster RTS late on Tuesday that Serbia is “politically stable” and must preserve that, noting that “all investors she speaks to say that is very important.”

The presidential campaign, expected to officially start on Thursday, “will be neither easy nor simple,” Mihajlovic said, adding that she nonetheless believes Vucic would win.
