Bosnia Press Review - September 21, 2012

SBB: We will win elections and bring order in the country. Border police to sue Finance Minister. Bosnian political parties do not have a stand on Izetbegovic-Tudjamn border deal.



Candidates of the Alliance for a Better Future of BiH, SBBBiH, held their pre-elections meeting in the municipality of New Sarajevo. President of the party, Fahrudin Radoncic, impressed the public and Mirza Hulusic, party's candidate for a mayor, was welcomed by an applause. Radoncic said that his party will win election and start putting order in the country which was run with bad politics of the Party of Democratic Action, SDA.


Bosnian border police is still in strike since April 30 and they will continue it, said head of sindicate Svevland Hoffman. He also said that the Finance Minister Nikola Spiric is to blame for the bad reputation of policemen. Border policemen will sue the minister due to his statement that policemen consider they are sanctioned when they are not sent to borders, which they understood as indirect accusation they are corrupted.


Most of the political parties in BiH still do not have a stand on the possible ratification of the 1999 Izetbegovic-Tudjman border deal even though it will most likely be adopted in Croatian Parliament until the end of the month.
