LP will not be part of the interim government

The Liberal Party (LP) has not received a call from the opposition to discuss the interim government, said party leader Andrija Popovic, stating that he saw no reason for such negotiations as long as government is functioning in a stable way.

Popovic said that they learned from the media on the idea of a transitional government and the attitude to talk about it in the opposition and the position.

“We certainly will not sit on two chairs now, and while the government is stable, I see no reason to negotiate the formation of some transitional government”, said Popovic to agency Mina.

He believes the coalition at the state level is stable and that it functions correctly for now, but reminded that there will be a cabinet reshuffle.

“What bothers LP in a way is that Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS) and Social Democratic Party (SDP) are negotiating for a long time on the annex of the coalition agreement, and no liberals nor others are included”, said Popovic.

He expects that there will be joint discussions since the coalition at the state level consists of seven subjects: “SDP and DPS don’t have a majority, they lack the three deputies, and we believe these talks will soon happen”.

“I believe that DPS and SDP went the wrong way because they can not make a coalition agreements without the others – Bosniaks, Croatian Citizens’ Initiative, Forca, Albanian Alternative and Liberals”, said Popovic.

He stated that he informed coalition partners at the highest level on his position, that there was a discussion on this occasion a few months ago, but that it remains to be seen how the situation will develop.
