Serbias Pm To Act As Finance Minister Until New One Is Appointed


BELGRADE – Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic has formally taken over the post of finance minister until a new one is named in succession to Dusan Vujovic, who quit this month, the government said late on Wednesday.

A former World Bank economist, Vujovic quit on May 7, citing personal reasons. He had served in two governments since 2014 and negotiated a 1.2 billion euro ($1.4 billion) three-year loan deal with the IMF that Serbia successfully completed in February without drawing on funds.

In a short statement, the government said Brnabic would serve as acting finance minister “until the new one is appointed”.
