SARAJEVO - RS vice-premier Aleksa Buha stated that the final decision on the holding of the local elections scheduled for September 13 and 14 in RS would be made by the RS National Assembly. "The response of the RS National Assembly will depend on reconciliation of voters lists", Buha warned following a meeting between RS Government representatives, led by RS prime minister Gojko Klickovic, and the OSCE Mission chief Robert Frowick and ambassador Vladimir Kuznyecov, held in Pale.
