(ANSA) - BRUSSELS, JUN 3 - The EU is calling on the political leaders of Bosnia and Herzegovina to "do everything possible not only to continue with reforms and resume dialogue but also to organize elections.". So said Peter Stano, spokesman for the High EU representative Josep Borrell, responding to a question about the failure to allocate the funds needed to prepare for the elections scheduled for October.

"It is crucial that these elections take place, allowing the citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina to vote in elections that are free, fair, and properly funded," Stano explained, urging "the members of the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Bosnia and Herzegovina and, in particular, the Minister of Finance, to use next Monday's meeting to adopt this year's budget draft." "We also call for a quick decision that would ensure the financing of Bosnia and Herzegovina's Central Election Commission," the spokesman added, underlining the urgency of "ending the stalemate of the institutions" across the country.
