The constitutive session of the Serbian National Assembly – which unsuccessfully commenced and was adjourned on Feb. 6 – resumed on March 18 and should entail the election of the parliament speaker, the deputy prime ministers as well as the members of various parliamentary committees, known as ‘working bodies.’

So far, former prime minister Ana Brnabic has been nominated as the new parliament speaker, while the candidates for the six deputy prime ministers have yet to be announced.

The other positions that are expected to be filled during the session are the Assembly general secretary and the members of the Assembly’s working bodies and of permanent parliamentary delegations to various international institutions.

The new parliament speaker is also supposed to call a new election for Belgrade’s local government, which, according to Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, should take place on June 2.

The constitutive session of the National Assembly initially commenced on Feb. 6. From the outset and throughout the oath-taking ceremony, however, opposition MPs disrupted the meeting by shouting, blowing whistles and claiming the Dec. 17 elections were rigged and that the composition of the National Assembly – and of Belgrade’s City Assembly in particular – do not reflect the true electoral will of the people.
