The BiH authorities have agreed on the formation of the Council of Ministers

Hosted by the European Union delegation in Bosnia and Herzegovina, with the presence of Ambassador Lars Gunnar Wigemark, (head of the EU Delegation in Bosnia and Herzegovina and EU Special Representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina) a meeting was held on August 5th between leaders of electoral political parties of the 2018 general elections.

Bakir Izetbegovic, Dragan Covic and Milorad Dodik, leader of the SDH, SNSD and HDZ of Bosnia and Herzegovina, reached an agreement on the formation of the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina and signed the Principles for the formation of the central government.

The agreement will last 30 days and will be considered invalid if until then the Council of Ministers, which is equivalent to the national government in the complex political system of Bosnia and Herzegovina, will not be formed. The prime minister will be a member of Dodik's SNSD, as well as foreign trade, communications and transport ministers.

On the other hand, Izetbegović's SDA will obtain portfolios of foreign affairs, defense and security, while HDZ BiH will receive finance, justice and civil affairs ministries.

The news was also welcomed by Brussels as stated by various sources within the Commission.
