BANJA LUKA -- The President of the Republic of Srpska, Milorad Dodik, announced a reform of the entity Constitution.
According to him, the new Constitution of the Republic of Srpska (RS) should contain a clause according to which the decisions enforced by the High Representative in BiH can be applied only if approved by the RS Parliament.
"The key issue of the reform of the RS Constitution will relate to the issues of locating and defense of the RS jurisdictions. For the implementation of this clause strong institutions are needed – the Parliament and the Government of RS and the strong will of the people," said Dodik.
‘’Stating that the reform of the entity Constitution will be completed next year and will cause a reaction’’, he noted that "lawyers in the RS need not be afraid, just as he is not afraid of anyone’’.
"It is your job to help me in how to make the best legal text of the Constitution of the Republic of Srpska. We do not raise any revolution, but defend the acquired jurisdictions and the right of the RS" Dodik pointed out.
He also said that ways in which RS can sue high representatives within the judiciary in their countries for violations of international law should be considered, adding that they are not going to give up.
Dodik has stated that RS is not a state, but that the policy he advocates is that RS is "less of an entity, and more of a state".
