BANJALUKA - The president of Republika Srpska (RS) Biljana Plavsic, talked in Banjaluka with Robert Frowick, OSCE Mission chief and head of the Provisional Electoral Commission. No statements were given, so reasons for Frowick's visit to Banjaluka are not officially known, but the talks presumably concerned the preparations for the up-coming municipal elections in RS and the B-H Federation, scheduled for September 13 and 14, and the most important phase of which - voters registration.

SARAJEVO - The president from RS in B-H Presidency, Momcilo Krajisnik, held in Pale a closed meeting with the head of Mission of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, Paul Monery. Krajisnik will attend the Presidency session in the National Museum in the Muslim part of Sarajevo.

PALE - The RS prime minister Gojko Klickovic and vice-premier Djuraj Banjac agreed with the World Bank representatives in their meeting in Pale that the noted problems in the implementation of approved projects, as well as those stipulating from the implementation of the Dayton agreement must be removed. The World Bank's delegation, led by Christine Wallich, aimed this visit to analyse the implementation of approved projects and debt servicing. Vice-premier Banjac said that "the issue of special accounts turned out to be a problem, as well".

SARAJEVO - The Swedish Government is ready to give financial assistance to RS, in order to resolve the issue of accommodation of refugees, especially those to come from abroad, stated the RS minister for refugees and displaced persons, Ljubisa Vladusic. He reminded the Swedish delegation, led by Swedish ambassador to Sarajevo, Nils Eliason, and Swedish minister for international development, Pierre Shory, that RS got only 1,7 per cent of total financial assistance to B-H, and expressed his hope that this injustice would be corrected at next Donor's Conference.

BRCKO - The voters registration was suspended as ordered by the OSCE Office in Sarajevo. The Office director in Brcko, Jessie Banch, informed the local electoral commission that the registration sites would be closed until further notice, justifying this by "continued irregularities found in the voters' documentation".

SARAJEVO - OSCE spokesman, David Folly, stated in Pale that the head of the OSCE Mission in Sarajevo, Robert Frowick, decided to close all four registration centres in Brcko in RS, "because of breaches of PEC rules".
