The Chairperson of the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Borjana Krišto, expressed her satisfaction with the adoption of five reform laws in the BiH Parliamentary Assembly, which are particularly important for BiH's further European path.
Krišto welcomed the adoption of the Bill on Freedom of Access to Information at the level of BiH Institutions, the Bill on Amendments to the Law on the Ombudsman for Human Rights of BiH, the Bill on the High and Judicial Prosecutorial Council of BiH, the Bill on Wine Market and the Bill on Amendments to the Law on Foreign Nationals.
Further European path
- The adopted laws, which were previously passed and referred to the parliamentary procedure by the BiH Council of Ministers, are particularly important for the further European path of our country. This is a clear indicator of how our country works constantly to fulfill the conditions for joining the EU. It also speaks of our determination and commitment to the goals and European values on which the European Union rests - said Krišto.
The Bill on the courts in BiH, the adoption of which was agreed at the political level, is currently being harmonized and is expected to be adopted by the Council of Ministers of BiH and sent to the Parliamentary Assembly of BiH very soon.
- All these reform laws bring our country one step closer to the European Union and are proof of our dedicated and accelerated work to meet the conditions for joining the European family - Krišto pointed out.
The importance of opening the negotiation process
She particularly emphasized the importance of opening the negotiation process as soon as possible, and by the end of this year at the latest and this latest adoption of the set of laws speaks in favor of the fact that these expectations are realistic.
- For this reason, it is necessary to implement the Decision of the Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina on the legitimate representation of the constituent peoples at all administrative and political levels, as well as the implementation of all judgments of the European Court of Human Rights, which would round off a process that leads us closer to the EU - said Chairperson Krišto.
