Outgoing European Commissioner for Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations Johannes Hahn urged Bosnian leaders to reach an agreement on the government formation in order to start addressing priority issues.
The Commissioner met President of Bosnia's Serb-dominated region Republika Srpska, Zeljka Cvijanovic, on Tuesday and the government formation was among the topics the two officials discussed in the meeting.
“My message to all BiH (Bosnia and Herzegovina) leaders one year after elections: agree on the formation of governments to start addressing priorities of EC Opinion on EU membership application and implement socio-economic reforms,” Hahn tweeted.

But, he also called on competent authorities to finalise the investigation into the case of David Dragicevic, a young man whose controversial death has not been solved more than a year after it happened.
“I also reiterated that the EU expects the judiciary to duly investigate and process the case of David Dragicevic and similar cases,” the Commissioner wrote on his Twitter profile.
