“There was no progress in finding a solution for Bosnia’s Election Law after a meeting between the country’s political leaders and Venice Commission representatives, and a new meeting is scheduled for Tuesday morning.

Leaders of Bosnian political parties met with the Venice Commission’s delegation on Monday to discuss the issue which, if remained unresolved, leaves it unclear how the upcoming October general election results will be implemented.

Two years ago the Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina ruled that some provisions of the Election Law were inconsistent with the state Constitution and subsequently deleted two sections of the Law which treat the matter of representation in the House of Peoples of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH), the semi-autonomous entity shared by Bosniaks and Bosnian Croats.” (N1)
