The Croat National Assembly of Bosnia and Herzegovina (HNS BiH), an organisation of Croat ethnic parties in the country, started an extraordinary convention in Mostar on Saturday to draw up a document calling for the continuation of electoral reforms and warning that conditions have not been met for an election this autumn.

In a statement to the media prior to the convention, HNS BiH leader Dragan Covic said that the aim for Croat parties to gather was to “ensure complete constitutional equality of the Croat people with the other two constituent peoples in BiH.”

“We want to make sure that Croats can elect legitimate political representatives at all levels of government in BiH,” said Covic.

Asked whether HNS BiH would insist on the establishment of a third entity if the election law is not amended, he said that he did not wish to comment on speculation.

“Our message will be a sign of unity by representatives of the Croat people in BiH,” he added.

The leader of the HDZ 1990, Ilija Cvitanovic, who is also a member of the HNS BiH leadership, said that the conclusions of the convention would be in line with the country's Constitution.

“With this, we are giving BiH a chance and offering our hand in an effort to define our relations on the basis of equality,” he stressed.
