The Bosnian Serb privately-owned centrist newspaper Nezavisne novine reported that the Bosnian Serb Republic government will most likely resign within the next few days and the prime minister-designate, who already has a proposal for the composition of a new RS government, will be nominated right away.
This was said by RS President Milorad Dodik, who added that it would take three to five days to schedule an extraordinary session of the RS National Assembly [NSRS], at which a new RS government would be appointed.
Dodik said that the situation in the RS was normal and that there was no need to rush into replacing the RS government, because there was a general consensus on that matter.
"We will do it efficiently, to the extent possible, and go for government resignation. After that the prime minister-designate will be nominated. Within one day or even less, he will propose the composition of a new government," Dodik said.
Under the Law on the RS Government, the prime minister is required to submit his resignation to the RS National Assembly speaker, who then forwards it to the RS president and parliament members.
After that, at its first subsequent session to be held within seven days, the NSRS is supposed to include in its agenda the resignation of the prime minister, who is expected to explain his decision in parliament. Under the same law, the prime minister's resignation or dismissal have as a consequence the resignation of the entire RS government.
Otherwise, the RS government's tenure can also be terminated by the expiration of the National Assembly's term, the dissolution of the NSRS or the shortening of its term, the passing by the NSRS of a no confidence vote in the government, the government's resignation, and the prime minister's resignation or dismissal.
Late yesterday afternoon Dodik was supposed to meet with RS Prime Minister Aleksandar Dzombic.
The SNSD [Alliance of Independent Social Democrats] chairman said that the SNSD-DNS [Democratic People's Alliance]-SP [Socialist Party] coalition partnership was unquestionable and that everything would remain the same in that regard, that is, the DNS would remain entitled to two ministerial seats, just like the SP.
Yesterday we were unable to reach the DNS or the SP for comment on whether they would replace their ministers currently in office.
Yesterday, the SP Executive Board held a session to discuss a possible replacement of the incumbent ministers from this party. However, the session was not concluded before this issue went to press.
We have learned unofficially that the SP will not replace its ministers. Thus, Petar Djokic will stay in the RS Ministry of Labour, Veterans, and Disabled Persons' Protection, whereas Gorana Zlatkovic will remain at the helm of the RS Justice Ministry.
The HDZ B-H [Croat Democratic Union of Bosnia-Hercegovina] will not replace its minister, either. Consequently, Davor Cordas will remain minister of refugees and displaced persons. At their meeting yesterday Dodik and HDZ leader Dragan Covic confirmed a previous agreement obliging the HDZ B-H to ensure one ministerial post in the FB-H [Federation of Bosnia-Hercegovina] for the SNSD, just like the SNSD ensured one ministerial seat in the RS government for the HDZ.
The DNS officials say that they still do not know whether they will replace their ministers and that a decision will be made after talks with their coalition partners.
Commenting on the RS government's "fall," Mladen Bosic, the chairman of the SDS [Serb Democratic Party], said that it was a logical sequence of events and that it should have happened much earlier.
"The question arises as to whether the incumbent ministers will be replaced by more competent ones and those who have a vision for the future," Bosic said, wondering whether the appointment of a new RS government was just an attempt to buy time.
Bosic went on to say that if it was nothing but an attempt to buy time, then it would return to the SNSD like a boomerang.
