Conference of Mayors - Bosnia and Herzegovina [16/06/2006]

''We are pleased to note that, as a matter of principle, all political forces in Bosnia and Herzegovina agree with the need to strengthen local self-government and harmonise legislation on local authorities in the Republika Srpska and the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as cantonal legislation inside the Federation,'' said Ian Micallef, newly elected President of the Congress Chamber of Local Authorities, at the Conference of Mayors of this country. ''Some of the existing municipalities are hardly sustainable because of the splitting of the former bigger local authorities after the Dayton Agreement,'' he said.

''Nous notons avec satisfaction que, sur le principe, toutes les forces politiques de Bosnie-HerzĂ©govine s’entendent sur la nĂ©cessitĂ© de renforcer l’autonomie locale et d’harmoniser la lĂ©gislation sur les pouvoirs locaux en Republika Srpska et en FĂ©dĂ©ration de Bosnie-HerzĂ©govine, ainsi que la lĂ©gislation cantonale au sein de cette dernière'', a indiquĂ© aujourd’hui Ian Micallef, PrĂ©sident nouvellement Ă©lu de la Chambre des pouvoirs locaux, Ă  la ConfĂ©rence des maires de ce pays. ''Certaines communes, a-t-il ajoutĂ©, sont difficilement viables depuis l’éclatement des collectivitĂ©s locales Ă  la suite des accords de Dayton''.
