Search for new Serbian police director begins
BELGRADE -- A vacancy announcement has been posted in the Belgrade-based daily Politika, calling on qualified candidates to apply for the job of Serbia's police director.
A new head of the Anti-Corruption Agency will also be selected in the process.
The candidates will have 15 days to submit their applications, after which a specially formed commission will select the heirs to Milorad Veljović and Zorana Marković.
The announcement has been expected for some time, considering that Veljović's mandate expired last year. He became police director during the government of Vojislav Koštunica.
However, he was remained in office on the request of the Democratic Party (DS).
After a new director has been elected, police administrations in Niš, Novi Sad, and some other towns, are expected to get new chiefs.
Meanwhile, PM Ivica Dačić, who also serves as interior minister, has stated that "the envisaged changes in the police have taken into account the events related to the wiretapping affair".
The Police Union (PSS) on Monday sent a letter to Dačić asking that their representatives be included in the commission that will make the final decision.
