Also, the Government is responsible to the National Assembly for the policy of the Republic of Serbia, for the implementation of laws and other general acts of the National Assembly and for the work of state administration bodies.

Incumbent government[edit]

The incumbent Cabinet was sworn on 29 June 2017 by a majority vote in the National Assembly. It is the first cabinet of Ana Brnabić, who became the Prime Minister month after the former Prime Minister of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić resigned from the office to become the President of Serbia, following the 2017 presidential elections.
