Serbian finance minister cedes economy brief, averts risk of snap poll

Finance Ministry may allow 5 pvt funds to manage pensions of govt staff

Credit: Reuters/Marko Djurica BELGRADE | Sun Jul 28, 2013 11:36am EDT BELGRADE (Reuters) – Serbian Finance Minister Mladjan Dinkic agreed on Sunday to cede his economy portfolio, averting possible snap elections that could have dented the country’s ambitions to join the European Union. Dinkic said he would remain as finance minister, while the economy portfolio would go to the SNS, Serbia’s biggest party, paving the way for a fuller cabinet reshuffle. Dinkic had previously resisted splitting up his ministry, but Prime Minister Ivica Dacic warned on Saturday that the coalition would go on without him if he did not. Financial markets seem likely to welcome Dinkic’s continued presence in government. He has slowed the rate of increase of Serbia’s budget deficit and public debt, which had ballooned to all but scuppered hopes of a new precautionary loan from the International Monetary Fund.
