International peace envoy in Bosnia and Herzegovina welcomed the willingness of those involved to continue negotiations on improving of the Election Law of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Office of the High Representative said on Wednesday.
“An amended Election Law must improve the transparency and integrity of elections. The representation of the three constituent peoples along with the Others in the institutions of the state and the two entities should be accepted by all,” said the High Representative, who oversees the implementation of the Dayton Peace Agreement, a peace deal that ended the 1992-95 Bosnian war and set up the country's constitutional system.
“It is the responsibility of those involved in BiH itself to reach a consensus for the benefit of all citizens,” he added.
The statement comes days after the latest round of talks on electoral reform mediated by the US and European Union yielded no result. The participants of the meeting announced the talks would resume this week.
