Brnabic, who is not officially affiliated with any party, told RTV last week that the president has "a certain role as a mentor to the prime minister, at least in the first few months".
41-year-old Ana Brnabic, a non-party technocrat and a graduate of the University of Hull in England was appointed as the new Prime Minister, in the same week as the appointment of Leo Varadkar as the first gay Prime Minister of Ireland.

Although the role of prime minister is the most powerful constitutionally, Vucic is nearly universally seen as retaining a grip on power via his leadership of the ruling Serbian Progressive party and his influence in various organs of state.
Then-Prime Minister Vucic confirmed to the media that Brnabic was gay, also adding that he was not interested in someone's personal choices in such matters.
Brnabic's appointment for the government a year ago was hailed by rights groups as historic for the Balkan country whose gay community often faces discrimination, harassment and violence.
Brnabic's nomination is considered Vucic's apparent turn toward the West amid strong pressure from Russian Federation to maintain its influence in the region. "I have accepted the nomination from the president and I will start work on my expose and the formation of the government".

The fluent English-speaking Brnabic had worked for US companies before she assumed her government job.
Brnabic's nomination is being blasted by the conservative Dveri group.
"Is it possible that the ruling majority has no other candidate for the prime minister-designate but the one imposed by the West which dictates all the moves by this government?" the party asked.
Vucic also confirmed there would be changes among Serbia's ministers, plus the creation of additional ministries. Earlier he said he would not approve anyone for the post who does not have at least two children.
The presidential job is largely ceremonial, but analysts expect that Vucic will move to consolidate his influence.
