The Republic of Croatia strongly advocates the implementation of all judgments of the Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina and changes to the BiH Election Law to ensure that three peoples and other citizens elect their own political representatives at all levels of government in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Minister of Foreign and European Affairs of Croatia Gordan Grlic Radman said in Mostar on Monday.
Minister Grlic Radman said that he was honored and pleased to give a lecture today at the University of Mostar on the 25th anniversary of the Dayton Agreement, what the Agreement meant at the beginning and what the results of that agreement are 25 years since its signing, Fena news agency reports.
”Croatia is a sincere supporter and active advocate of BiH’s Euro-Atlantic path and, as an EU member, it is in its interest to have a stable, functional and prosperous Bosnia and Herzegovina, of which I am a friend. All three peoples of Bosnia and Herzegovina should be, and are constitutive and equal,” said Grlic Radman in a statement for the press.
He added that the Republic of Croatia strongly advocates the implementation of all judgments of the Constitutional Court and changes to the Election Law, which will guarantee the election of its own representatives at all levels of government for all three peoples and other citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
When it comes to the Presidency of BiH, Grlic Radman stated that it was imagined that representatives of the constituent peoples would sit in the state presidency, which, according to him, is not the case now.
”We want this to change and to respect the spirit of the Dayton Agreement and its wording, which agreed on the future of Bosnia and Herzegovina 25 years ago. BiH is a state of two entities and three constituent peoples, Bosniak, Croat and Serb. We want political leaders to understand their own responsibility in the interest of these peoples and to agree on the future of Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as to change the Election Law, which is to the detriment of the Croatian people,” said Minister Grlic Radman.
