Milorad Dodik, Bosnian Serb leader and the country’s tripartite Presidency Chairman, said the possibility of declaring the independence of the Serb-dominated entity Republika Srpska (RS) existed in future, the Beta news agency reported.
He said the fact that new Bosnia and Herzegovina Council of Minister had not been formed since October 2018, when the elections were held, was “the violation of political rights”, and called for the constitution of power at the country’s level.
“I cannot exclude any moves in the future not even the declaration of RS independence. Whatever anyone thinks about it, it's rational,” Dodik told Bosnia’s public broadcaster BHT television.
He has been reiterating that idea for years.
Dodik added he was not against the country but was against the “inefficient elites both among the Serbs and Bosniaks.”
He recalled the European Union Commissioner for Enlargement Johannes Hahn’s statement that Bosnia and Herzegovina could not expect an affirmative answer unless the authorities were formed.
“I call for the forming the government,” Dodik reiterated.
