There is a way to solve the emerging political crisis in Bosnia through the state institutions, but despite this the Bosnia’s Serb-majority will become independent sometime in the future and can then search for a way to enter in union with Serbia, the leader of Bosnian Serbs Milorad Dodik said on 16.02.
The leadership of Bosnian Serbs announced that representatives of Republika Srpska would not participate in the state level decision-making processes until a law removing foreign judges from Bosnia’s Constitutional Court is passed.
Dodik, who is the Serb member of BiH’s tripartite Presidency and the leader of the largest Bosnian Serb party SNSD, accused the foreign judges of the Constitutional Court that they have allied themselves with the two Bosniaks judges and are working against Bosnian Serb interests. For years he has also been advocating for the RS to secede from BiH and join Serbia.
“There is no place for Serbs in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where they don’t want a Republika Srpska”.
“Republika Srpska is a wonderful and big national idea of the Serb people and is the only place of our survival here”, he said.
Meanwhile Dodik elaborated that the RS will not defend itself using force, guns and tanks, but with the will of its people and institutions which should be built up through unity in the Parliament of the RS and through defending Serb interest in the institutions of Bosnia and Herzegovina. “I am no war leader, I will not lead the people into war and there will be no war, but I will surely be capable and ready to fight for political rights, as I want our children to not have to fight our battle, ensuring this by building a stable, loved and accepted Republika Srpska, integrated with Serbia, primarily”, Dodik said.
“I will work for this Serbs to never again be expelled from their homes and to stay on our own territory”, he added.
Dodik is convinced that despite a possible institutional solution to the current crisis if the Constitutional Court becomes regulated by a new law, Republika Srpska will become independent in a matter of few decades and that it would find a way to unite with Serbia afterwards.
Dodik also announced that the Bosnian Serb and Croat representatives will propose together a law on the Constitutional Court in the Parliament of BiH.
