ZAGREB, October 16, 2018 – Croatia’s Foreign and European Affairs Minister Marija Pejčinović-Burić on Monday conveyed the concern to her counterparts in the European Union over the fact that for the third time since the conclusion of the Dayton Peace Accords, the Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina were not in position to elect their legitimate representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina’s tripartite presidency, the Croatian ministry said in a press release.

Attending the meeting of EU foreign ministers in Luxembourg, Minister Pejčinović-Burić underscored the importance of the amending of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s election legislation in accordance with the decision made by the Constitutional Court on the legitimate representation so as to ensure the equality of all the three constituent peoples in that country and ensure the election of legitimate representatives at all levels of authority.

She proposed that this topic should be added to the EU Council’s agenda as soon as possible owing to the importance of that matter.

The EU foreign ministers discussed the developments in Libya with a focus being put on creating prerequisites for holding elections and the stabilisation of the country.

The Foreign Affairs council also discussed the external aspects of migration and the Central African Republic.
