Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Denis Zvizdic (SDA), told members of the House of Representatives of the Parliamentary Assembly of BiH that BiH received almost identical ratings from the European Commission to other countries of the Western Balkans in all seven criteria.

During the debate on the European Commission’s Report on BiH for this year, Zvizdic underlined that all other countries received a candidate status before membership in 2014, although BiH still did not manage to do so, regardless of all the efforts made in that direction. 

Within the political criteria, he said, in the BiH judiciary, Serbia and Montenegro have the same rating as in the justice sector, including Macedonia, and a similar situation is in the area of ​​freedom and security and the fight against organized crime and freedom of expression.” (translated from Klix)
