Extraordinary Session of the Presidency cancelled, no Appointment of Chairman of CoM

The extraordinary session of the  Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) has been canceled, on whose agenda the vote on the appointment of Zoran Tegeltija as the chairman of the new convocation of the Council of Ministers of BiH.

“Milorad Dodik withdrew his request to hold the session and said he would no longer address it,” BiH Presidency Chairman Zeljko Komsic told reporters in Sarajevo.

The extraordinary session was scheduled at Dodik’s request and he previously stated that members of the Presidency reached an oral agreement on the 37th extraordinary session of the Presidency with the item “Appointment of the Chair of the Council of Ministers” at the session held on August 20th.

Dodik also recalled the Principles for Formation of Government, signed by Dodik, and leaders of the Party of Democratic Action (SDA) and Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) BiH, Bakir Izetbegovic and Dragan Covic, on August 5th, which, he claims, set a precise deadline of 30 days for government formation.

The reason why it will not be voted for Tegeltija is still unknown, and according to unofficial information, Dodik will no longer apply for his nomination.
