MAY 20 1997 DAY


BANJALUKA - The president and the vice-president of Republika Srpska (RS), Biljana Plavsic and Dragan Mirjanic, respectively, discussed in Banjaluka with the director of the EU General Bureau for Foreign Affairs, Katharine Day, about the trade ties between RS and the neighbouring countries. 'We talked about some concrete issues, with a special stress on the trade, because the EU and the international community are extremely interested in removing all the difficulties that we are facing in the field', stated the president Plavsic after the meeting.

BELGRADE - Once again the extremely complicated election rules prescribed by OSCE are not aimed at making it possible for each of the citizens to carry out they right, but to favour the reintegration of B&H which is not defined in the Dayton agreement and which the Muslims are striving for, stated the RS vicepremier and foreign minister, Aleksa Buha, for the Belgrade 'Vecernje novosti'. 'Instead of making it possible for the people to vote in the place they are living in or intend to live in, various criteria are being combined. I do not exclude the possibility that the 1996 OSCE's practice for fabricating of the voters ballots in order to change the election results and establish a new municipal democracy by their own standards will be repeated', believes, Buha.

SARAJEVO - Upon the request of the Provisional Electoral Commission (PEC), the five parties from RS are going to run at the municipal elections in the B&H under changed names, because the previous names were so similar with the names of the other parties, announced the OSCE. We are speaking here about the Private Businessmen Party (the former Private Initiative Party), the Democratic Patriotic Party of RS (the former Democratic Patriotic Block), The Private Democracy Party of RS (the former Democratic Party of Private Initiative of RS) and the Democratic Centre of RS (the former Democratic Centre Party).

ZURICH - Members of the Association of Serbs in Switzerland sent a letter of protest to the OSCE in regard to the new rules for the voters registration for the elections in B&H, according to which the voters from Switzerland are to register themselves in Vienna by May 24 as well as in the municipality their choose to vote in. 'We are protesting against the complicated double registration, for if we want to vote first we have to register ourselves with the OSCE Centre in Vienna and afterwards with just the same documentation in the municipality where we wish to vote in, says the letter.

BIJELJINA - The members of the Army of Republika Srpska (VRS) will have just the same rights and duties as the civilians in RS at the forthcoming elections. They are to register themselves in the municipalities they are founding themselves in and the registration centres approved by OSCE, while they will vote in the municipalities they intend to live in, stated from the VRS General Staff Sector for moral, information and legal affairs, major Slobodan Jugovic.

BIJELJINA - The head of the Executive Board of the Serbian Radical Party (SRS) of RS, Mirko Blagojevic, stated in Bijeljina that the SRS submitted the lists of candidates for the forthcoming municipal elections in 54 of the RS municipalities. At a press conference Blagojevic reiterated that the SRS of RS will run independently at the municipal elections.
