The widow of the former president of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRJ) Josip Broz Tito died on Sunday in Belgrade aged 89.
Trade Minister Rasim Ljajić said earlier that the government will "most likely" decide that she should be buried alongside her husband, in the Belgrade mausoleum known as "Kuća Cveća" ("House of Flowers").
She will be laid to rest "in a room next to the one where Tito was buried," according to reports.
Ljajić has been appointed to head the organizing committee for the funeral, and told reporters today that it would be held at noon on Saturday, October 26.
The former Yugoslav president's widow will be buried with full military honors - considering that she was a member of the WW2 Partisan resistance movement.
PM Ivica Dačić said earlier that Jovanka Broz's desire to be laid to rest "next to, or near" Josip Broz would be honored.
