There is a saying in Serbia – “Firstly jump and then say hop”, not the other way around, President Aleksandar Vucic said reacting to the allegations of current Foreign Affairs Minister Ivica Dacic assuming the role of the prime minister after elections in Serbia, Tanjug news agency reports.
“Who will become the prime minister… I’m afraid that someone had jumped to conclusions… There is an old Serbian proverb – “Firstly jump, and then say hop, not the other way around”, Vucic told the press.
This way Vucic reacted to the allegations and speculations by some Serbian media that Dacic will be newly appointed Prime Minister after the spring elections, he had personally mentioned earlier.
Asked whether Dacic will pose the same conditions to him and to the opposition in case of coalition negotiations, Vucic said that everyone has the right to set the conditions as he wanted, but the question is whether those conditions would be accepted or not.
“We’ll see about that when the time comes… It is more important to me what Serbia will do, whether Serbia can go forward, how much we can build, than to talk about personal solutions right now”, Vucic told the media on the occasion of touring the city stadium” Dubocica” in Leskovac town (southern Serbia).
