Bosnia Press Review - September 30, 2015

Electricity to become pricier in Federation entity; five working days for religious holidays; rise in petrol excises will take months.



The Federation entity government and the Premier Fadil Novalic plans to increase the price of electricity for some 700.000 households what caused harsh reactions.


The Council of Ministers adopted a law proposal about non-working days in the time of religious holidays in Bosnia and Herzegovina foreseeing the equal number of working days during the year for Muslims, Orthodox and Catholic Christians, Jews and other religious groups.


Six months is a minimal deadline for higher excises on petrol the entity governments demanded, but there is currently no political agreement over that. The Bosnia Finance Ministry said that procedures for changing several laws and allowing that, would take long.
