Bosnia Press Review - December 6, 2012

Salespeople will be hiding cigarettes before new excises. New Srebrenica coalition not supported my mayor. Eight times more graduates in a decade in RS.

Sarajevo

DNEVNI AVAZ

Cigarettes will get pricier from January 1 next year due to higher excises. Many salespersons will hide packs and packs of them so that they could sell them by higher prices later. That is why consumers have trouble buying those at the moment. Associations of consumers urged inspections to work harder in finding such cases.

OSLOBODJENJE

Representatives of SDP, SBB, SNSD and SDS presented their political platform in Srebrenica which is to form the municipality coalition. The future coalition caused many reactions in Srebrenica. Camil Durakovic, the new mayor of Srerbenica, said he will not support such coalition. He said he had a meeting with four Bosniak parties which gave him support prior the elections, but that SDP and SBB now formed a coalition with two Serb parties.

NEZAVISNE NOVINE

In the last ten years the number of graduates in Republika Srpska increased almost eight years. In 2001 around a thousand citizens got high-degree diploma and a decade after the number is 7.855. Students say that there are many reasons for that with one of them being that the faculty is considered to be a normal degree of education as a high school was sometimes. Others say that they cannot find any jobs with a high school diploma.

Balkan Insight has not verified the facts in the original press reports and cannot vouch for their accuracy.
