Soskic May Be Replaced on Fiscal Policy, Dacic Tells Tanjug

July 12, 2012

Serbia’s central bank Governor Dejan Soskic may be replaced before his term in office ends in 2016 if he doesn’t support the new government’s economic growth policies, Ivica Dacic, the designated prime minister, said in an interview with state-run Tanjug newswire.

Soskic may lose his job if he acts in discord with other state institutions, which will seek to stimulate growth rather than “tighten the belt,” Dacic, who will be sworn in office later this month, told Tanjug.

Dacic accused the nation’s 33 banks, 21 of which are owned by foreign lenders, of siphoning assets abroad and “robbing the people,” according to Tanjug.

“Someone should bear responsibility for the bad situation,” Dacic said, commenting on reports that the new government may replace Soskic.
