The Council of Peoples of the entity of Republika Srpska should consider, at the session tomorrow, the Law on immovable property used for the functioning of public authority, which was adopted by the National Assembly of the RS at the end of last year, and in connection with the Decision on initiation of the procedure to protect the vital national interest of the Bosniak people.
The Bosniak People’s caucus in the Council of Peoples of RS decided at the beginning of January to raise an issue of vital national interest regarding the law passed by the RSNA regarding immovable property.
A delegate in that caucus, Adil Osmanović, told FENA that out of eight delegates, five Bosniaks from pro-Bosnian parties voted “for” and three delegates from SNSD were against, which was not enough to challenge that decision.
Osmanović stated today that the Bosniak People’s caucus in the Council of Peoples of RS, at least five of the eight in total, will present their position which is by the decision of the Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina that the owner of state property is only the state of Bosnia and Herzegovina and that they do not see any reason why RSNA once again started that procedure, to re-enact such a law that the Constitutional Court declared unconstitutional last year.
He explained that this law will go further in the procedure, which implies that a commission of the Council of Peoples and a commission of the RSNA will be formed, which will reconsider the law mentioned above.
If it is not agreed upon, the final decision on this law will be made by the Constitutional Court of the RS.
