The National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia elected a new president and members of the Energy Agency (AERS) Council because the old management mandate has expired.
The new President of the Council is Dejan Popović, and the members are Aca Marković, Dejana Stefanović-Kostić, Negica Rajkov and Goran Petkovic, who is re-elected.
Officials of the most important regulatory body for energy in Serbia were previously selected at a public contest, issued in July last year by Ministry of Energy and Mining.
Popović was elected for a term of seven years, Marković and Stefanović-Kostić for six-year terms, and Rajkov and Petković for terms of five years.
Popović, a mining engineer, was State Secretary at the Ministry of Energy, Development and Environmental Protection and Director of state-owned Resavica coal mines, where he spent most of his working career.
Aca Marković and Negica Rajkov are an electrical engineers, Dejana Stefanović-Kostić is an economist, while Goran Petković is a lawyer.
The former president of the Energy Agency Council was Ljubo Maćić, and members were Ljiljana Hadžibabić, Predrag Makar, and Dejan Stojanović.
