ZAGREB, January 31, 2020 – The 151-seat Croatian parliament on Friday voted for the appointment of Vili Beroš as the new health minister, with 81 votes in favour, 42 against and one abstention.

Upon the voting, the newly appointed minister took oath.

In January 2018 Beroš was appointed an assistant to then Health Minister Milan Kujundžić, who was dismissed a few days ago.

Before taking office, Beros was the head of the Endocranial and Pediatric Surgery Department of Zagreb’s Sisters of Charity Hospital, where he started working in 1998.

Since 2012 he has been an associate professor at the Zagreb University Faculty of Education and Rehabilitation Sciences. He is also a vice-president of the Croatian Society for Cerebrovascular and Endovascular Neurosurgery.

After Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said this past Tuesday that he would propose that parliament confirms his nomination of Beroš as the new health minister, Beroš said that he would do his best to advance the health system and would immediately start talks on unpaid overtime with associations representing medical personnel.
