STRASBOURG/SARAJEVO, January 19 (FENA) - After almost 16 years of membership in the Council of Europe, Bosnia and Herzegovina should step up efforts to implement the country’s obligations and remaining commitments to the Organization. While respecting the Entities’ and the Brčko District’s autonomy, the necessary reforms should be implemented on the basis of a shared vision of the development of the country’s institutions. This requires a full-fledged constitutional reform, without which the country’s democratic institutions cannot function properly and Bosnia and Herzegovina cannot become a genuinely civic State of all its citizens, it is stated in the draft resolution on BiH, as FENA has learned from its sources, which will come before the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe on 24 January, with some possible amendments.
