His nomination has been accepted by the Council for National Security.

The council held a session on Friday and made its decision, which will be forwarded to the Serbian government, which should adopt it.

Đorđević, a lawyer from Čačak, central Serbia, was being mentioned recently as "the most serious candidate" to take over as theh new head of the BIA.

He graduated from the Faculty of Law in Belgrade in 1995, and worked in the District Court in Belgrade, joining the Belgrade Bar Association in 1998.

Until 2001 Đorđević worked as a lawyer in Veljko Guberina's law firm in Belgrade, and then opened his own practice.

The agency has operated without a director for more than a month, ever since Nebojša Rodić took over as defense minister in the reshuffled Serbian government.
