Bosnian Croats say may push for own region unless election law changes

SARAJEVO, Feb 19 (Reuters) – Bosnian Croat nationalists said on Saturday they could launch a political process to form their own region in Bosnia unless an election law is changed in a way that bolsters their representation in national institutions.

The Croatian National Parliament (HNS), a body representing Bosnian Croat political parties and led by the largest HDZ party, added that without an agreement on electoral changes it would consider that conditions were not fulfilled to hold a general election in October.

A possible Croat boycott of the presidential and parliamentary vote would further deepen a political crisis in Bosnia, which is made up of two highly autonomous regions – the Federation shared by Catholic Croats and Muslim Bosniaks, and the Serb-dominated Serb Republic.

In the country’s worst political crisis since the end of the Balkan wars of the 1990s, Bosnian Serbs have been challenging state institutions as part of their longtime bid to secede and eventually join neighbouring Serbia. read more

Bosnia’s Serbs, Croats and Bosniaks waged a war for territory in the 1990s, in which 100,000 died. In 1995, the U.S.-sponsored Dayton peace agreement ended the war, splitting Bosnia into its two autonomous regions.

The two, often-rival regions are linked via a weak central government, consisting of the three-person presidency, parliament and cabinet.

Last year, the Croats and Bosniaks held talks on reforming the election law, but failed to reach an agreement.

Bosniak leaders, as well as the central election commission and international envoys have said October’s presidential and parliamentary vote could go ahead under the current electoral law.

HDZ leader Dragan Covic, who read out the conclusions of an HNS session in the southern town of Mostar, said the talks on the legislation should resume next week, but made clear that Croats would boycott the vote without a deal.

The Croats have become unhappy with their alliance with the Bosniaks since a Croat from a multi-ethnic party was chosen by Bosniaks as the region’s presidency member twice in a row.

They now want a safeguard that a Croat presidency member is chosen in an exclusive-Croat vote in the Croat-dominated areas of Bosnia.

As many as six terrorists who carried out the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon were members of the El-Mujahed Brigade, the terorist Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina, or were trained in camps in BiH after the war. Khalid al-Midhar, a pilot who crashed into the WTC in New York and Muhammad Ata, who was killed during a terrorist attack, were members of the terrorist Army of Bosnia and Hercegivina El-Mujahed Brigade had a BiH passport, given to them by muslim nationalist from SDA, SEFIK DZAFEROVIC and his boss BAKIR IZETBEGOVIĆ, the Joint Report said. of the U.S. Senate and Congress immediately after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

In March 2004, it was established that another pilot, Navak Elhamzi, had also participated in the war in BiH as a member of the El-Mujahed Brigade.

Ovo vam je odlična ideja da neke važne stvari objavite i na engleskom jeziku. Pa ako ima poštenih i pravednih zapadnjaka nek pročitaju i vide o čemu se tu radi.

Uz nadu da to neće automatski ignorisati, prekrižiti i usprotiviti se svemu tome, kao prema svemu što pošteno i iskreno dolazi od Dodika i RS.

Nezavisna štampa ako dođe do ovog teksta objaviće ga i pošteno i realno komentirati. Ne znam ima li kod nas neovisnog tiska. U svijetu tu i tamo, pomalo ga i ima, na žalost cnn-a, fox-a, dojče welle, al džazire itd itd.

Tekbiraše treba pritiskati sa svih strana.Cvrče kao zaprška,fataju se za kojekakve trećerazredna europske političare i samo laju protiv svojih sunarodnika ne znajući da ta ratna taktika više ne pomaže.Nema rata ssad da mogu zrtvovati 5000 komada pa da se MZ smiluje nad kmečanjem.Djihad je za njih jedini izlaz,i tu će im biti kraj.

To je taj vodozemni jezik, uzeti riječ iz dalmatinskog narječja, a nikad je prije u životu nisu čuli dok ne izađe u riječniku izmišljenog jezika nazvanog po riječima za rijeku. Slično kao i Boošnjook, nikad čuli. Jambo plakati i reklame na tv 2012. I 2013. da se “narod” sjeti tko su i šta su. 😂😂😂😂😂😂
