OSLOBODJENJE

Federation entity government refused to put the no-confidence vote to them on the agenda. Prime Minister Nermin Niksic said that the majority of ministers, nine of them, voted against it. He hoped that the government will be reconstructed in the next 15-20 days. The initiative was in the government because ministers are divided in two blocks.
