It is necessary that Bosnia and Herzegovina implement the election results as soon as possible, and ultimately change its Election Law, said Matthew Palmer, US Assistant Secretary of State for South East Europe in an interview for news agencies in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH).

This reform, explicitly emphasized by Palmer, can not be imposed by the international community. It must be proposed and implemented by the authorities in BiH because reforms need legitimacy, but for that will require a compromise.

‘Tensions are normal in a democratic society. Through them, through negotiations and achieving compromises, policies are born. The United States will help in that and support reforms, but we are not there to dictate,’ he added.” (translated from Klix)
