Milorad Pupovac, a parliamentary deputy of the Independent Democratic Serb Party (SDSS), said on Monday that he was not participating in talks with the HDZ on a government reshuffle, but he admitted that "there has been contact" with different sides.
"We are not taking part in talks on a government reshuffle but talks are under way within our own circle as to what to do in the current circumstances," Pupovac told Hina.
Asked if HDZ leader Tomislav Karamarko or any other HDZ official had contacted him regarding that topic, Pupovac said: "There is communication and it will probably continue, and I said what I had to say."
Roma minority MP Veljko Kajtazi said that he had not been approached lately or in the past six months by anyone from the ruling majority even though he had warned on several occasions of the need to cooperate in implementing the national strategy for the Roma community.
"I am not satisfied with the government's work so far, and as for regrouping and other topics that have been discussed lately, my position will be in line with the position of the ethnic minority caucus," said Kajtazi.
Representatives of other ethnic minorities said that there was no news for the time being and that the minority caucus would hold a meeting this week.
