The political crisis in the Bosnian Serb Republic ended with a new government.

Deputies of the Bosnian Serb Republic parliament has elected a new Bosnian Serb entity government headed by Zeljka Cvijanovic, a close associate of Alliance of Independent Social Democrats (SNSD) president Milorad Dodik.

Six names from the cabinet of the former Prime Minister Aleksandar Dzombic were replaced with MPs from SNSD in the new cabinet that received the vote of confidence.

Cvijanovic delivered a speech at the parliament and stated that the new government would pay attention to the problems of the people.

Expressing her gratitude to Milorad Dodik for giving her the duty, Cvijanovic stated that unlike the claims of the opposition, she wasn't going to be the "microphone" of Dodik and Dodik had no demands whatsoever.

Born in 1967, Cvijanovic worked as a teacher after graduation, then an assistant in EU mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina before entering cabinet of the Bosnian Serb Republic. Cvijanovic, who is a professor of English, was minister of economic relations and regional cooperation in Dzombic's government. She is also the first female prime minister of the Bosnian Serb Republic.

President Milorad Dodik of the Bosnian Serb Republic nominated Cvijanovic on February 27 to establish a new cabinet after the former government resigned on the same
day.
