NTV Hayat: CEC Acted Contrary to the Constitution of the Federation of BiH

Broadcasted on NTV Hayat, March 2019.

The Central Election Commission decided on awarding mandates to delegates in the House of Peoples of the Parliament of the Federation of BiH based on their own criteria and procedures. Considering that the Constitution of FBiH stipulates that cantonal assemblies elect their own delegates for FBiH’s House of Peoples, the Initiative for Monitoring the European Integration of BiH reacted to the decision of the CEC stating that its decision is contrary to the Constitution of FBiH. That means CEC derogated the Constitution by awarding mandates to the persons who were not elected in the cantonal assemblies.
