SARAJEVO, Bosnia (September 12,2008) - Results of the research done by the Center for Civic Initiative (CCI) shows that the Bosnian State Parliament and the Bosnian Council of Ministers realized certain “progress” in the first six months of 2008 since they would now need 45 years to realize their four year plan instead of 50 according to the pace they had at the end of last year.

CCI spokesperson, Majda Behrem-Stojanov stated that the first half of 2008 was marked by refusal of parliamentarians to increase salaries for themselves and only three months later they increased them by 100% and it was at the moment the public was preoccupied with the arrest of former leader and creator of the genocidal Serbian creature in Bosnia "RS" and one of the masterminds of the genocide against the Bosnian people,Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic.

”This showed their incredible cynicism, immorality, greed and social insensitiveness”, stated Stojanov.

Consultant for the work of the Bosnian Council of Ministers, Denis Telic stated that at the Council did not even discuss 85% of laws planned for this year. Out of 24 laws sent into parliamentary procedure by the Bosnian Council of Ministers only 9 of them were adopted.

The lowest rate of realization belongs to the Bosnian Minister of Transport and Communication, Bozo Ljubic with the degree of realization of only 15% of planned activities.

Former Bosnian Minister of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations, Slobodan Puhalac left 90% of his obligations unfinished and in six months he did not realize a single law.

According to the comparison done by CCI, former state parliamentary assembly was efficient from the current one, since in the first six months of 2004 they adopted 43 laws that is 30.2% more then the current parliament.

At the end, Behrem-Stojanov appealed to all Bosnian citizens to vote for those candidates with results behind them and not to listen to pre-election promises.
