Text published on, March 2019

The Initiative for Monitoring the European Integration of BiH warned the public that Criteria and procedures, which the Central Election Commission (CEC) used in filling the House of Peoples, are contrary to the Constitution of FBiH. Most political parties agree with this statement, but none of them initiated the process of constitutionality assessment.
