Highly Conservative Serbia To Have Its First Openly Gay, Female Prime Minister

Published on 16 June, 2017 at 1:42 pm By

Serbia’s President, Aleksandar Vucic, has nominated Ana Brnabic for the position of Prime Minister. 41-year old Brnabic is the first openly gay, female politician to be appointed to the significant position in the conservative Balkan country.

Brnabic will hold the position officially once the parliament gives its approval in the next week which is largely a formality as she is the choice of the President’s party and its allies. Vucic terms his decision as a difficult one, reached in the interest of Serbia and its citizens. Convinced about her capabilities and qualities, Vucic firmly believed that Brnabic will work hard once she assumes office.

Last year, Brnabic hit the headlines for becoming the first openly gay minister in the highly conservative Serbia.

Brnabic’s appointment as the Public Administration and Local Government Minister was regarded as historic since the country is known for its feeble LGBT rights and the rampant discrimination, harassment and violence against the community. Same sex couples do not have same legal protections as heterosexual couples.



Ana Brnabic, the new Prime Minister, who received her education in the UK and the US, is also the former ‘businesswoman of the year’ awardee of Serbia. She takes over the important position in Serbia at a crucial juncture for the country as it is preparing to get a membership in the European Union, while maintaining its close relations with Russia.

Recently, Leo Varadkar, a doctor-turned-politician of Indian origin was in the news for becoming the first openly gay Prime Minister of Ireland.
