The latest round of negotiations on election law reforms in neighboring Bosnia and Herzegovina ended on Sunday without an agreement. The negotiations were being mediated by representatives from Brussels and Washington.

The head of the Croatian Democratic Union of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Dragan Čović, has reiterated to reporters in Sarajevo that conditions have not been fulfilled to hold elections in October, but added that there is still a chance to reach an agreement on the reform of the election law before then. He noted that an agreement had been reached on the manner of electing members to the Bosnia and Herzegovina Presidency and the House of Peoples in the Parliament of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and this could be a starting point for the adoption of much needed legislative solutions.

Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina are calling for election reforms that would allow them, as one of the three constituent peoples of that country, to elect their own representatives in Bosnia and Herzegovina's political bodies. In February, talks between the two key sides, Bosnian Croats and Bosnian Muslims, which were also mediated by EU and US representatives, also fell short of the mark.
