SARAJEVO, September 30 (FENA) – The Party for Democratic Action (SDA) announced that the party will not support the Protocol on police reform signed by a member of the Bosnian Presidency Haris Silajdzic and the political leader of the Serbians living in Bosnia Milorad Dodik.

SDA emphasized that the party officials did not participate in the development of the document.

The President of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) Zlatko Lagumdzija also announced that police reform protocol signed by Silajdzic and Dodik is unacceptable for the SDP.

Allegations of certain political parties, especially their leaders on the disintegration of the country and state institutions through the act of signing the Police reform Protocol which took place o Friday are absolutely untrue and malevolent, Party for Bosnia (SBiH) announced on Saturday.

The SBIH party representatives stated that it has become obvious that the comments are based on the interests of certain individuals.

”Instead of welcoming such moves and the decision of the SBIH party and SNSD party leaders, which were called by both the Brussels and Washington on Friday as obstruction parties, using every opportunity to emphasize that only Haris Silajdzic and Milorad Dodik can solve the police reform issue, today they have completely revealed themselves and their plans of eliminating the two most prominent personalities from the Bosnian political scene”, the SBiH announced.

Behaviour of the SDA party leaders is incomprehensible. That is a coalition party with the SBiH, which has, in every key moment, repeated the phrase “everything Silajdzic accepts will be welcomed for he is the absolute winner of the elections”,the SBIH said.

The SBiH further emphasized that they and the SDA party representatives closely collaborated in the development of the police reform protocol, contrary to some claims.

The SBiH added that the protocol they signed mostly resembles the Lajcak proposal. That will open the door towards European Union for Bosnia.Both the parties have shown determination for European integrations by signing the protocol,the SBIH stated.

By following the High Representative's recommendations, the SBiH will not analyse the details of the document and will not be held responsible to anyone calling Mr. Silajdzic to comment certain items of the Protocol,the SBIH said.

The announcement also states that the expert analysis have shown that the Protocol strengthens the Bosnian state institutions.

The SBiH party will wait for the reaction from Brussels (today). After that, the document will be sent to the parliamentary procedure,the SBiH announced.
