Croatian politician Borgana Cristo became the first candidate for prime minister in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
- The country’s three-member presidential council gave the mandate to form the government to the 61-year-old Cristo after the general elections last October.
In today’s Presidency Council session, Christo’s candidacy as a person to form the new government at the national level was supported by the President of the Presidency Council, the Serbian member Zelica Švijanovic, and the Bosnian member Denis Becirovic. Croatian Council member Zeljko Komsić voted against the political candidate of the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ).
- Parliament must vote on Cristo’s nomination within 30 days.
Komsic said in a statement yesterday that he would decide to appoint Cristo in line with his answer to the question he would ask him about NATO membership before the vote. In the security investigation by the Bosnia and Herzegovina Research and Protection Agency (SIPA), Kristo, who found no obstacles in his assumption of the premiership, was a candidate for the Croatian membership of the Presidency Council in the general elections held on October 2. Kristo, the HDZ candidate, lost to Komsic in the elections.
“The new Cabinet should be an important catalyst for many processes in the context of accelerating Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Euro-Atlantic journey,” Kristo said in his mission statement.
