Political parties gathered in the Croatian National Assembly in Bosnia and Herzegovina have announced that they will file a motion with the Constitutional Court in Sarajevo, against guidelines adopted by that country's Central Election Commission regarding the election of delegates to the Upper House of the Parliament of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The Croatian National Assembly insists that the Central Election Commission of Bosnia and Herzegovina does not have the authority to change election law. "We firmly believe that only the legislature can change the election law. That's the whole story, the rest doesn't interest us," said Croatian National Assembly President Dragan Čović.
Čović added that in spite of the commission’s decision and some attempts to portray it as beneficial to Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Croatian National Assembly will continue to fight for equal representation for all three constituent peoples in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
"Some are trying to infer that the HDZ or Croatian National Assembly in some way profited from this decision. We very clearly reject that assessment. Quite the contrary, we will insist on legitimate representation," Čović concluded.
