“Croat members of the House of Representatives of the Federation entity (FBiH) will not take part in the extraordinary session discussing the law proposal treating the number of constituencies and number of mandates in the FBiH Parliament, said representatives of Croat parties in this chamber.

Two caucuses gathering Croat representatives – the Croat Democratic Union (HDZ BiH) and the Croat Democratic Union 1990 (HDZ 1990) refused to attend the session scheduled for Wednesday afternoon, saying they were not timely informed about the content of the law proposal, as stipulated by the parliament’s regulations.

Head of HDZ 1990 Caucus Boro Kristo emphasized that they received the note during another session on the same day when the scheduled extraordinary session was supposed to be held, which was contrary to the Rules of Procedure.

Four parties – the Party of Democratic Action (SDA), the Alliance for Better Future (SBB), the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and the Democratic Front (DF), with support of the Our Party, agreed earlier on a law proposal that defines the geographical constituencies and the number of mandates in the Parliament of the FBiH, Bosnia’s entity shared by Bosniaks and Croats, hoping they would solve current political crisis that hinders progress of the country.” (N1)
