President to begin consultations on PM-designate next week

President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic will begin consultations on the Prime Minister-Designate after receiving complete election results from the State Electoral Commission (DIP), which will not be possible before next week because voting has to be repeated at seven polling stations on Sunday.

"The President of the Republic will launch the process of consultations in line with the Constitution after she receives the official results of the parliamentary election from the DIP," spokesman for the President's Office Luka Djuric told Hina on Monday.

Under the Constitution, the President gives a mandate to form a government to a person who, based on the distribution of seats in the national parliament and after consultations, enjoys the trust of a majority of all members of parliament.
