The VRS General Staff reminds that "in several occasions, it made clear that the VRS would not take any of the sides, and now it reiterates its position again."

The CJB in Doboj informed residents of Doboj region that "there is no reason for unease anymore, and said that all future SFOR, IPTF and MUP activities would be carried out with a view to easing the existing tensions and the implementation of the Dayton agreement."

"The Electoral Appellation Sub-Commission will review appeals and objections by independent candidates and political parties, today and tomorrow", stated the president of the Republic Electoral Commission, Petko Cancar, and added: "After the results of the local elections are summed-up, reports by international monitors issued, and decisions on eventual objections before the Electoral Appellation Sub-Commission made, the PEC will give 'technical certification of the electoral results', which would be issued in the "Official Gazettes" in RS and the B-H Federation."

BEOGRAD - The members of the Serbian Intellectual Forum from Banjaluka restated their view at yesterday's debate with the researches from the Institute for Geopolitical Studies from Belgrade on "The Current Political Situation in RS" that the implementation of the parliamentarian elections is the way for overcoming the political crisis in the Republic. The Forum president, Mladen Ivanic, believes that the "holding of the parliamentarian elections in RS is a necessity", and that their too long postponement might even deepen the crisis. Ivanic assessed that "in RS there are two power centres, and that there is a tendency of development of such situation among the people", while the Forum vice-president Branko Dokic believes that "the confrontations in RS exist between the eastern and western parts of RS". Same as Ivanic, Dokic is committed for holding of parliamentarian elections as soon as next month, because they represent one of democratic principles to lead RS out from the political crisis.
