Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on Friday that the new government will need some new energy.

“You can’t be in the government for 15 or 20 years just because you think you should be in it. I think some new energy is needed,” Vucic said after observing a Gendarmerie exercise at the Gruza lake.

He said there would be big personnel changes in the new government, adding that those changes will be up to the prime minister designate. The president said that he would make his opinion known at meetings of his Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) leadership.

Earlier, Vucic said that four people are being considered for the post of prime minister. Belgrade daily Danas reported this week that Finance Minister Sinisa Mali is the most likely candidate to form a new government.
