At yesterday’s plenary session, the Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), ruling on the request of six delegates of the House of Peoples of the Parliamentary Assembly of BiH (PABiH), found that the Republika Srpska (RS) does not have the constitutional authority to regulate the legal matter that is the subject of the Law on Immovable Property Used for the Functioning of the Public Authority of the RS, because it is the jurisdiction of BiH.
The Constitutional Court declared the law out of legal force. The court reiterated its position from earlier decisions that the state tried to resolve the issue through the formation of the Commission for State Property.
Also, the high representative for BiH acted in this direction as well. However, the Constitutional Court concluded that the issue has not yet been resolved and that there is a real necessity and a positive obligation for BiH to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
The Constitutional Court of BiH, among other things, rejected as inadmissible the request of Sefik Dzaferovic, the Chairman of the Presidency of BiH, for the review of the constitutionality of the Regulation on the control of public procurement in all institutions founded by the Canton of Sarajevo (CS) due to the lack of jurisdiction of the Constitutional Court of BiH to decide.
