Serbian Lawmakers Approve Cabinet Shuffle Focused on New Jobs

Serbia’s Parliament approved a Cabinet shuffle as Prime Minister Mirko Cvetkovic focuses on job creation and increasing living standards before heading into elections next year.

Lawmakers voted 129-19 late yesterday in favor in the 250-seat legislature a week after Cvetkovic said he was downsizing his Cabinet and adding the finance minister’s portfolio to his duties as premier for the final year of his term. The three largest opposition parties, which together hold 102 seats, walked out of the lower house before the vote.
