The agreement on ministries, which is final, should be made formal in the parliament on Tuesday, with the adoption of the bill on ministries and amendments to the Law on Government.

As the Serbian government stated, the two documents should be presented to the parliament on Monday, given that the 15-day deadline by which Prime Minister Mirko Cvetkovic is due to propose the ministers that should replace the three G17 Plus ministers who tendered their resignations expires on Tuesday, March 8.

Cvetkovic is expected to present the new members of the government to the parliament, as well as the measures the government will take.

The reshuffled government will redefine its economic priorities including betterment of the standard of living, unemployment rate control, acceleration of economic activities, price stability and support to the real sector development.

The government reshuffle should be accompanied with the adoption of the 2011 budget rebalance.
