Serbo-Croat term or phrase: ministar na raspolaganju
Konaèno, 2. jula 1884. godine Privilegovana narodna banka Kraljevi-ne Srbije poèinje da radi. Kralj Milan za prvog guvernera ukazom postavlja Aleksu Spasiæa, tadašnjeg ministra na raspolaganju.

English translation:minister without portfolio
Explanation:
OK, I can't be sure of this term, because I haven't heard it - only of 'ministar bez portfolija'. But that sounds like the same thing - the minister who doesn't have a specific job, but hangs around waiting for one, or else has been given this title in order to give him a place in the government for whatever reason.
