Bosnia prime minister: Reactions to SDA declaration excessive and unfounded Izvor: N1

Reactions to the main Bosniak party's declaration on future goals and actions are excessive and unfounded and are aimed at creating an artificial crisis in the country, Bosnia's prime minister and the Democratic Action Party's (SDA) high official Denis Zvizdic told N1 on Monday.

“I think the reactions are excessive and unfounded. Their purpose is to create an artificial crisis and blame the SDA and the Bosniak people. The party's programme declaration is exclusively based on modern, democratic and European principles,” Zvizdic said.

He added that those commenting on the SDA's programme declaration are trying to make people forget the declarations of some other parties which are truly anti-Constitutional, like the one adopted by the strongest Bosnian Serb party – the Alliance of Independent Social Democrats which clearly advocates for the secession of Bosnia's Serb dominated entity and its accession to Serbia.

Zvizdic pointed out that his party respects the Dayton Peace Agreement which ended the 1992-1995 war in Bosnia and which contains the country's Constitution, but that this Agreement needs to be further amended.

“The programme declaration and the SDA's determination is very simple. It is Bosnia's sovereignty, territorial integrity and its international and legal subjectivity. We advocate for Bosnia where individual rights will be respected through which the respect for individual rights will be achieved as well,” he added.

The SDA official concluded that the party respects the Dayton Peace Agreement but that they are thinking of the evolution of the Agreement which would head in the direction of more functional and efficient processes in the country.

Last Saturday, the SDA held a party congress in Sarajevo where they adopted a declaration, outlining the party's future goals. Some of those goals include the creation of a democratic, regionalised, lawful and social state under the name of ‘Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina,’ which should have state, regional and local governments.
