Serbia’s new government will seek to amend the central bank law to enable it to dismiss central bank governor Dejan Soskic, NIN weekly magazine reported, citing an unnamed minister in the new Cabinet.
The new government is due to be sworn in tomorrow and it will take “a week or two” to amend the central bank law, according to NIN. Changes to the central bank law will simplify procedures to replace the governor. Soskic will be replaced by Jorgovanka Tabakovic, vice-president of the Serbian Progressive Party, NIN said.
