SDS leader Mirko Sarovic said that SDS will lead a positive campaign, and asked a question to the current president of the Republika Srpska (RS) entity and the candidate for the Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) Presidency from the RS, Zeljka Cvijanovic.
”I would not like to comment on the SNSD’s choice of the current president of the RS, Zeljka Cvijanovic, as its candidate for the Presidency of BiH, but I promise that the SDS and I personally, until the end of this election process, will fight strongly, using only arguments and facts to point out all the bad and disastrous moves of the government and individuals from the government who have led us for the past 16 years, leaving behind a terrible situation in all spheres of life, political, economic and every other,” said Mirko Sarovic, president of SDS.
At the same time, we will lead a positive campaign, says Sarovic, and offer solutions for many life issues and the bad situation in which RS has been brought, not thanks to the opposition, but to the SNSD authorities.
”On the other hand, the current president Zeljka Cvijanovic, in the absence of answers and arguments, constantly avoids and will avoid explaining to the public how it is that we as a Republic and as a country are so poor, isolated, and sanctioned from the most important European Union (EU) countries such as Germany, the United Kingdom (UK), France, etc, and why there are now 200.000 fewer of us, especially young people, after 16 years of SNSD rule,” Sarovic stated.
Isn’t, says Sarovic, the pandemic or the war in Ukraine to blame for everything, as the president of the RS usually explains to us?!
He asked if there might be something to do with the work or lack of work of those who lead this country?!
”Don’t you think that the problem for the situation in RS is that Mirko Sarovic was a guest on a show somewhere or that SDS and its president made a decision to leave one of the sessions of the National Assembly of RS (NARS) for a reason, as the president wants to present,” asks Sarovic and adds:
”The respected President of the RS forgets that she has been in a coalition with the same Bakir Izetbegovic and the SDA since 2019 and that both Bakir and Mile and the President of the Republic smiled sweetly and posed in front of a restaurant in Istocno Sarajevo when they shared the election spoils. But that’s their choice,” Sarovic emphasized.
Refusing to answer
We measure ourselves, he points out, only by how well we know how to do our job and how much we have contributed to the overall progress of our country!
”That’s how I was as the president of RS, as a member of the Presidency from the RS, for a short time until Paddy Ashdown removed me from the political scene and sanctioned me, and especially while I was working and contributing to general progress as a minister in the Council of Ministers of BiH. Citizens and businessmen know this well,” Sarovic said.
Sarovic says that the government and the President of the RS cannot hide behind the opposition because of the bad situation in the country.
”That seems too naive and transparent. Why do you want that? Get over it, you’ve ruled for 16 years and you have all the levers of power in your hands! Don’t whine about Mirko Sarovic and tell us why we are the poorest country in Europe today according to all official data?! Answer us why, according to research by the world’s leading financial institutions, we are the most corrupt country in Europe and among the three worst in terms of corruption in the whole world, especially in public corruption produced and controlled by the government?! Why are we the leading country in Europe in terms of population mortality due to inadequate health care, and pensions are convincingly the lowest in the entire region,” Sarovic asks?
I’m sorry, he adds, but it is not possible to blame the opposition, SDS, and its president for this, instead of those who have governed this country for so many years.
”No matter how and how much the current government runs away from the answer and the agony they have brought us into, hiding behind the “spitting” of the opposition, you as the government will still very soon have give explanation for all of this to the citizens of this country,” Sarovic is categorical.
