Ana to become Serbian PM despite the coalition members’ disagreement over her sexual preference










The Serbian President, Aleksandar Vucic, has selected Ana Brnabic as the new Prime Minister of the country, even though some coalition members of the party have expressed reservation about the sexual preference of the leader. Ana Brnabic is a gay woman. She is the first such person to be elected to the post. She has to secure the support of the parliament to get into the position. In this case, in the parliament, her party and its political allies enjoy a concrete majority so it is not going to be a tough job. In Serbia, the Prime Minister position is largely a ceremonial position. The Serbian President has more power than the prime minister in this largely centralised administrative system. Anyway, the selection of Ana gains more importance than the previous selections because in a normal scenario it is not possible to see a progressive political move among the Serbian politicians.

Serbia is largely a conservative country. In the recent past, some far-rightist organisations have launched an attack against the country’s gay pride march, which is a symbol of progressive revolution. The new political developments show that the country is in the state of transformation and is slowly transforming from the conservative to progressive. However, it is an unfortunate fact that the person who takes this progressive step, the Serbian supremo, has declined to give a strong comment on Ana’s sexuality in order to defend her from those who are mocking her pointing at their sexual preference. Experts say that had the president clearly express strong statement denouncing those who look at a person’s sexual preference instead of evaluating the calibre, the members of the parties which have a political tie with his party would not have expressed such a derogatory statement against the new PM. It is a delightful thing that the president, expressing strong confidence in Ana’s calibre, has at least said that his PM would work for the betterment of the country.
