Zeljko Komsic was re-elected party president at the Second Regular Congress of the Democratic Front in Sarajevo.
At a press conference held after the election, he spoke about the current political situation. He noted that what his colleague from the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), Milorad Dodik said has no basis in the laws or the Constitution of BiH.
“Whatever decision Dodik and the National Assembly of Republika Srpska (RS) make, I assure you that the Armed Forces of BiH (AFBiH), the High Judicial and Prosecutorial Council (HJPC), and everything that has been established in the BiH Parliamentary Assembly will continue to exist,” Komsic pointed out.
He underlined that this is a disastrous policy, and wondered if it means that, even if such a decision is made in RS, it will be requested that RS soldiers withdraw from the AFBiH.
Asked about possible sanctions against Dodik, Komsic said that it was something that others decided on. Speaking about the sanctions of the European Union (EU), he explained that financial flows that go to an individual are mostly sanctioned, so it could happen that “the price of his madness is paid by the entire RS” in terms of interrupting the inflow of funds.
Also, he was asked about his relationship with other left-wing parties. He mentioned that their outstretched hand for cooperation has so far been rejected.
“Of course, we are always in the mood to talk to left-wing parties. This country needs a left-wing policy, our hand has been outstretched, we are waiting. We do not know which of these parties will respond,” Komsic told.
As he emphasized, the Democratic Front will continue the fight for a civil state, the fight against corruption, with strong elements of social justice.
“We do not have scandals and we will do our best to keep it that way in the future. We have not got dirty so far, there is no reason to get dirty from now on. These are the basic directions we are taking,” stated Komsic, Klix.ba writes.
