After media speculation about the PM scolding the minister Jovanovic in front of other SDP members, the first confirmation came from the minister of administration Arsen Bauk.
Bauk stated for tportal that the whole case was over exaggerated because the PM would have said such things to every other minister. Bauk claims the situation isn't so dramatic and that Jovanovic's ministry position doesn't depend on this reprimand.
Furthermore, Milanovic allegedly criticized Jovanovic for his behavior relating Jovanovic constant skirmishing with officials of the Croatian Football Federation.
HDZ initiated a Parliamentary procedure for a replacement of the minister Zeljko Jovanovic since they claim Jovanovic's statements became almost like hate speech. HHO also criticized Jovanovic for his aggressive statements.
In more than first hundred days of the coalition Government, Jovanovic obviously didn't gain any sympathy or appetence.
