EU's Sattler-Another 4 yrs of FBiH govt in technical mandate inconceivable

March 10, 2023

The head of the EU delegation to BiH, Johann Sattler, told reporters in Sarajevo on Friday that the time has come to finalize the entire government formation process in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH) entity.

“As for some deadlines, the time is running out, there are still three weeks left to reach an agreement. But, I believe that there is strength among domestic actors and those responsible to reach an agreement that will enable the formation of government in the FBiH,” Sattler noted.

He added that he cannot imagine that there is any responsible politician who would, on his part, cause further blockades.

“We already had a government in the technical mandate for four years. It is completely unacceptable that such circumstances continue. As for solutions, I believe that solutions are possible, that it is possible to reach an agreement on the home terrain,” Ambassador Sattler concluded.
