President of the National Assembly of the Republic of Srpska Nedeljko Čubrilović spoke today with the newly-appointed Ambassador of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bruce Berton, and the meeting was also attended by Dmitri Iordanidi, head of the Banja Luka OSCE Office.

President Čubrilović pointed out that the National Assembly is the most functional parliament in BiH, that all the organs and institutions of the Republic of Srpska are stable, and that it is necessary to work continuously on creating a more favorable environment for investing, developing the economy and strengthening the real sector.

Speaking about the holding of the previous Session of the National Assembly, President Čubrilović said that everything was done in accordance with positive legal regulations and that the democratically elected parliamentary majority did not allow the minority to block the work of the highest legislative authority in Republic of Srpska.

President Čubrilović emphasized that it is necessary for political actors to actively participate in the adoption of reform laws that all parlaments have committed to when accepting the agenda on the path to European integration.

He emphasized that it is necessary, before the official start of election campaigns, to adopt amendments to the BiH Election Law, which in its present form enables political corruption and trade with parliamentary mandates.

Čubrilović pointed out that it is necessary to define that the compensatory mandate belongs to a political party, not to an individual who does not have the support of citizens, nor has the right to trade with a mandate given to a political party.
