Speaking to the press, Pupovac said Milošević had the party’s “full support in everything he is going through because we believe that what he did was part of his mandate as an MP.”
Milošević is under investigation by the USKOK anti-corruption office on suspicion of wrongdoing in the allocation of grants to businesses in state-assisted areas in 2018.
Asked if the SDSS would cause problems if Milošević was replaced as part of the government reshuffle, Pupovac said a reshuffle was in the interest of all ruling coalition partners and the government as a whole and that everyone would contribute in their own way.
He said the prime minister would have the last say on the reshuffle and recalled that Milošević had tendered his resignation.
“If Milošević leaves the government, he and the SDSS will decide on his return to parliament”, Pupovac said. “It’s up to us to maintain the stability of this coalition, regardless of what that means for us and Deputy Prime Minister Milošević.”
