STEVANDIĆ: WE WILL NOT ATTEND HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES SESSION

 

BANJALUKA, June 13 /SRNA/ - Nenad Stevandić, head of the Serb Caucus in the House of Representatives of the Bosnia and Herzegovina parliament, stated Thursday in Banjaluka the caucus will not attend an urgent session of the House on Friday because it was scheduled by members who were the first in BiH to violate laws, that is, they did not allow the formation of a committee for appointment of the chairperson of a new Council of Ministers.

 

“Such a move has blocked everything at the BiH level. For the blockade to end, they have to submit an initiative for the formation of the said committee. They unfortunately want to discuss the topics which members of the parliament did not receive the necessary information about. They cannot play state or parliament that way,” Stevandić told the press.

He underlined that BiH Presidency members Šefik Džaferović and Željko Komšić had been blocking BiH too because they had not submitted a harmonised proposal for appointment of the Council of Ministers chairperson before a statutory deadline.

“They only vote when they have a personal interest in a matter, and never do they vote when another people’s view has to be acknowledged. I call on Džaferović and Komšić to submit a proposal for appointment of the Council of Ministers chairperson and invite those who are obstructing BiH to harmonise their views about forming an appointment committee. That’s when we could start working,” added Stevandić.

Commenting on the migration crisis in BiH, Stevandić said it was the responsibility of the caretaker Minister of Security Dragan Mektić who engages in political accusations against officials from Republika Srpska and Serbia, and even against the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, and that the matter was the responsibility of the ones who obstructed BiH first.

“He has been dealing with this, instead of dealing with the migration crisis and the best way to spend nine million euros the EU gave BiH to manage the problem. The new Council of Ministers should form a coordination body that would deal with migrants so that the crisis does not deepen further,” concluded Stevandić. /end/dš
