Brcko Arbitration

Supervisory Order

In accordance with powers invested in me by the Interim Arbitral Award of February 14, 1997; the Supplemental Award of March 15, 1998; and the Dayton Peace Accords (Annex 3) to insure, in cooperation with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), the conduct of free and fair general elections in the Brcko area, I hereby proscribe the dismissal of elected or appointed officials from their municipal offices on the grounds that such officials freely exercised their democratic right to change political parties or to sever party affiliation altogether.
