SDA candidate for minister in RS has disputable biography. HDZBiH blocked laws from SDP-SNSD deal. No additional documents needed for new identity cards.
One of the ministers in the reconstructed government of Republika Srpska is likely to be Dzevad Mahmutovic from Party of Democratic Action, SDA. He used to transfer many Bosniaks to find asylum in European countries.
Five laws did not pass the procedures before the session of the Council of Ministers planned for Thursday. Most of the eight laws from the deal SDP-SNSD did not get the support of the HDZBiH, HDZ1990, SBB and SDS which are the coalition partners in the government.
There will be no additional expences for taking the new identity cards in Republika Srpska. The documents agency said that citizens do not have to bring birth certificates or other docuement and that it is enough to bring the old identity card to get the new one.
