He added and that the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) also supported him.

Commenting on the statements of the SNS leader who said that businessman Miroslav Mišković wanted a different government and a different parliamentary majority, Stefanović told Radio Television of Serbia (RTS) that he believed this would remain a mere wish of an individual.

“Perhaps Mr. Mišković and some other people want a different government but everyone can rest assured that Vučić has the absolute support of the parliamentary majority and government bodies in the fight against crime and corruption,” said Stefanović who is also a member of the SNS.

He noted that everyone should be aware that the parliament, government and the country's leadership intend to tackle crime and corruption seriously and reform the country so as to ensure an exit from the economic crisis, and added that nobody can stand in their way.

Vučić stated on Tuesday that those who believed they could draw an upper hand over the government were wrong and added that Mišković as the owner of Delta company did not have more power than the state.

The deputy prime minister noted that he told no lies a few days ago when he said that Mišković wanted to oust him and SNS from the government, adding that the Delta owner got pretty engaged in closing alliances with everyone on Serbia's political, media and economic scene who could cause harm both to the party and its leader personally.
