Deputy Prime Minister Bozo Petrov said Monday he hoped a new veterans minister would be chosen within a week, but declined to answer whether his Bridge party had blocked the appointment of Milijan Brkic as the new veterans minister, saying that Brkic's contribution to the Homeland War was great, but that he was personally "oriented towards new proposals."
He told the press that a session, which was also attended by Prime Minister Tihomir Oreskovic and at which deputies discussed draft 2016 budget, was constructive and positive.
"I expect such meetings to be held more frequently," Petrov said.
He added his party would support the budget and it would not submit additional amendments, apart from the one referring to subsidies for transportation for high school students.
