“Dragan Covic, Chairman of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina and HDZ BiH President, said that he was not surprised by the outcome of the vote on the amendments to the Election Law in the House of Representatives of the Parliamentary Assembly of BiH.
‘We also expected such information from the Parliament, but it took eight months for this legal proposal to finish its course. Although our proposal was passed by the House of Peoples, and although we felt that there was a chance for some corrections to be corrected, today saw that there were only 11 advocates for it. There was nothing to special to expect. Even worse, as far as I can see, was the SDA’s proposal, which was sent more to compete with ours than with a realistic chance of being adopted,’ Čović told to news outlet Fena before dinner started with colleagues from the Presidency of BiH and President of the European People’s Party (EPP) Josef Dol in Brussels.
Tomorrow will be followed by individual talks between Čović, Bakir Izetbegović and Mladen Ivanić with Dol, and the main topic will be amendments to the BiH Election Law.
‘We will elaborate our proposals and try to find a compromise, if it can be found at all. I will remain optimistic and, as long as there is a chance, we should do everything to define the way of election of members of the BiH Presidency and the House of Peoples and authorities in Mostar City through legal changes. peace expectations of elections and implementation of election results,’ said Covic.” (translated from Nezavisne)
