Political Developments

PACE President René van der Linden addresses BiH HoR














PINK – Addressing the BiH Parliament members, President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe [PACE], René van der Linden, called them on implementing reforms which would strengthen state institutions, saying that they were now too week to take BiH to the EU. “After the October general elections, we hope you will find political courage to continue discussing the issue and ways through which mechanisms of ethnical representation could be replaced by civil principle based representation, especially be eliminating entity voting at the BiH House of Representatives, defining the issue of vital national interests more clearly”, said van der Linden. He added that the BiH Constitution had to be changed, what made Serb representatives angry. BH TV 1 – The Resolution on BiH, adopted last week by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), is not legally binding, but it represents a clear political stance, PACE President stated. A failure to obey the conclusions of this Resolution can block BiH’s path towards European Union, Van der Linden said during his address to members of both Houses of BiH Parliament. PACE President emphasized that the Resolution is not a destabilizing factor. “It looks a little bit further, and if you want to become a member of European family, than you have to do a lot more – and certainly Dayton cannot be the basis for that, it is not enough”, stated Van der Linden. NTV Hayat – This resolution is impartial”, stressed Van Der Linden, saying it would be bad for young people in BIH to grow up ethnically divided. On referendum in BiH, he stated it is not possible.

Serb delegates at BiH HoR express dissatisfaction with PACE Resolution on BiH


PINK – President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe [PACE], René van der Linden added that the BiH Constitution had to be changed, what made Serb representatives angry. Namely, they said that received a lot of bad news from the recently adopted PACE Resolution, BiH Constitutional Court and the ICTY. “We received a message from the BiH Presidency Chair who met with the indicted war criminal…whose sentence is mild. Does this mean that we need a single President?”, said BiH HoR member, Momcilo Novakovic. another Serb member of BiH HoR. Ljiljana Milicevic, also BiH HoR member, reada letter Serb members at HoR signed, which finds content of the PACE Resolution unacceptable. “The Resolution is anti-Dayton and it does not contribute to reconciliation in this area but leads towards radicalisation causing political instability in BiH and region. RS representatives are ready to take active part in building-up the Dayton Constitution but oppose all activities which question BiH’s Constitution, founded on entities”, said Milicevic. FBiH political parties’ representatives supported the text of the Resolution. BH TV 1 – All Serb delegates, bar SRS’ Mirko Blagojevic, signed a letter condemning both the contents and the way this ‘anti-Dayton’ Resolution was adopted. “I must say that this CoE Resolution is the biggest institutional blow to the Dayton Constitution. But I’m glad we all know that an international agreement has much more power than resolution”, stated PDP’s representative Goran Milojevic. However, representatives from FBiH reacted in completely opposite manner. “CoE is an institution which has the role to promote the rule of human rights and democracy, it is the oldest and the most credible European institution. I personally did not like many of [CoE] resolutions, but we have to respect them”, stated House of Representatives Chair Martin Raguz, member of HDZ 1990 Croatian Unity party. NTV Hayat – Milojevic informed Van Der Linden that recent resolution adopted by PACE has disturbed the relations in the country. RTRS – “Ethnical principle pretty much exists in the EU state members but it is said that it should be annulled here”, said independent candidate Petar Kunic. Serb MPs also said that BiH Serbs had lately received a lot of bad news. “No binding resolution, which could be directed towards abolishment of entities is going to be supported by any RS representative”, said SNSD representative, Dusanka Majkic. On the other hand, FBiH representatives support the Resolution. “It sure does present a way in which PACE helps both; BiH authorities and its citizens”, said SDA Caucus Head, Elmir Jahic. Dnevni Avaz pg 2 ‘It is not Europe but BiH and its citizens need reforms’, announced on cover ‘Overcome distrust and nationalism’ by H.Orahovac – says SDA’ Jahic, Sead Avdic from Mixed Club, SzBiH Azra Hadziahmetovic expressed support to PACE efforts to help BiH.

Further reactions on PACE Resolution on BiH: Austrian Ambassador supports preservation of entity voting at Parliament


BH TV 1 – Unlike Resolution, most of the ambassadors in BiH have supported the preservation of entity voting in state Parliament. “I think that this Resolution is an important signal that the constitutional reform is necessary in BiH… But in order to achieve that, parliamentary parties have to reach an agreement”, stated Austrian Ambassador to BiH Werner Almhofer. However, according to BHT reporter, politicians from RS do not seem to take this Resolution seriously. “This Resolution means nothing, because it totally opposes the official political stances of countries that signed the Dayton Peace Agreement”, stated RS President Dragan Cavic. “One thing is for sure: those CoE stances will not be changed, just like the stances of European Parliament or American Senate. Those are the democratic principles upon which we have to build something”, stated SBiH’s Haris Silajdzic. The International Institute for Middle East and Balkans Studies IFIMES warned that the resolution of the oldest and most respectable European institution could not be ignored; instead, it should be considered as some kind of warning for BiH politicians to work faster on creating more effective state structure.

PHR lifts ban prohibiting political engagement


RTRS – The High Representative to BiH, Christian Schwarz-Schilling, lifted bans on holding party office against all individuals removed by earlier High Representatives. The only exceptions are those individuals who were removed for reasons connected to non-cooperation with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY). According to OHR press release, Decision allows these individuals to hold positions within political parties, but it does not, however, entitle them to return to the positions from which they were removed. Decision is part of a process of regularising the legal status of removed individuals announced by Mr Schwarz-Schilling on 21 March, as OHR said. “Decision on whether these persons are going to return to political parties should be brought by leaders of the parties; it is up to them to evaluate whether persons, who once obstructed peace implementation, would be able to contribute to better BiH’s future”, said the OHR Spokesperson, Ljiljana Radetic. SDS is dissatisfied with the fact that the decision does not refer to those officials, removed on June 30th and July 1st 2004, mostly SDS members. “I hope that this HR would annul such decisions, since it is obvious that they have no effect, questioning its suitability in time they were being brought”, said member of SDS election board, Ognjen Tadic.
