Dragan Markovic Palma - whose small Unified Serbia party is a part of the ruling coalition led by Vucic's Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) - said recently that the new prime minister "should be a family man who knows what children are".
But EU hopeful Serbia can present it as proof of increasing tolerance.
Ana Brnabic, 41, will take the premiership less than a year after she entered politics, becoming public administration minister in August 2016.

When he appointed Brnabic to his cabinet in 2016, Vucic said that he was interested only in her work and that "her personal choices do not interest me".
"That could of course be just a "camouflage" of the situation as the reality is nowhere near that".
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.
