HR commends RS National Assembly and Council of Peoples on new RS Government

High Representative Valentin Inzko commends the Republika Srpska institutions for finalizing the process of forming the RS Government today.

“Taking into account that Bosnia and Herzegovina is going through very difficult social and economic times, it is of crucial importance that no time is lost in the formation of institutions.

I therefore appreciate that the National Assembly of Republika Srpska, which was convened within the legal deadline, was the first legislature in BiH to vote on a new government.”

The High Representative also expressed hope that the new government would make progress soon on its program. “The citizens of the RS expect their Government to start working as soon as possible and to tackle the difficult social and economic situation. It is of utmost importance that the RS budget and the economic policy for 2015 are adopted in a timely manner,” said the High Representative.
