The State House of Representatives (HoR) Speaker said for N1 that HoR Deputy Speaker Borjana Kristo did not support the scheduling of the inaugural session of the chamber.

“I thought everything would go a lot smoother because this is a matter of protocol and a chamber’s obligation to set the date,” Mladen Bosic said. “We proposed that the session be convened on November 5, but to my surprise, Mrs Kristo rejected the idea. I have no idea why.”

The Collegium of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s House of Representatives (HoR) failed to schedule the inaugural session of this chamber, on Tuesday, due to the lack of consent of one of the deputy speakers, Borjana Kristo, from the nationalist Croat Democratic Union (HDZ BiH).

The reasons for this move are unknown, and Bosic said the situation is now quite odd.

“I don’t see what else we could discuss. I asked that she suggests another date, but she was obviously not ready to take part in the decision-making process. Whether there is a simple reason behind this or some kind of political game, we have yet to see,” he added.

According to him, this is quite a new situation which could end up in courts for them to find the solution.

He also said he believes this could be a hint of a new blockade in the functioning of the state.
