OHR expects all political parties to respect the BiH Constitution

SARAJEVO, July 28 (FENA) – Any action by political parties to paralyze the BiH institutions would be a step in the wrong direction and a disservice to the citizens they claim to represent, the Office of the High Representative said in response to a request for comment on recent developments after the decision by the political parties from the entity of Republika Srpska to block the work of the BiH institutions over High Representative Valentin Inzko’s decision to ban genocide denial.

“The OHR expects all political parties to respect the BiH Constitution and ensure the smooth functioning of state institutions and the exercise of their constitutional and legal powers. In this regard, it must be noted that the budget of the BiH institutions should have been adopted in December last year, and that has not been done yet,” underlined the OHR.
