Parliamentary Assembly of BiH passed 12 laws in 2011, whereas Parliament of Republic of Croatia 233 laws in ten months and the National Assembly of Republic of Serbia 206 laws, it was stated at today's press conference of Centers of Civil Initiatives (CCI).

Parliamentary Assembly of BiH passed 12 laws in 2011, whereas Parliament of Republic of Croatia 233 laws in ten months and the National Assembly of Republic of Serbia 206 laws, it was stated at today's press conference of Centers of Civil Initiatives (CCI).

Presenting work of PABiH in the last year Ivica Cavar, coordinator of CCI for monitoring PABiH emphasized that PA did not pass more laws (15) than it did which has never happened before, whereas 80% of laws were not passed from 2006 to 2011 due to entity vote of representatives from RS. 

Since both Houses of Parliamentary Assembly of BiH held 27 plenary sessions last year and having in mind that monthly earnings of a state representative and delegates amount between 5.000 and 7.500, one session cost the citizens around 130.000 KM, whereas one adopted law 295.000 KM.

"During a four-year term a state representative can earn average of 300.000 KM, whereas a citizen will work for 30 years with the average salary for the same money'', Cavar illustrated.

Therefore, Cavar emphasized that representatives of PABiH are most paid in the region and have the poorest results, especially because all adopted laws are actually adopted amendments to an already existing laws, whereas the laws ''stayed'' in parliamentary procedure for approximately eight months.

According to CCI, if this ''dynamic'' of passing laws continues BiH will never join EU, especially because 30 measures that are necessary for fulfilling of conditions and which should have been adopted until 2011 at the latest are still on hold.

Council of Ministers of BiH also did not have any better results and CCI coordinator for monitoring Council of Ministers of BiH Denis Telic emphasized that BiH Government is the only one in the region which has not passed a single law in the first five months of 2011.

To compare, while CMBiH determined 25 laws last year, Government of Montenegro determined 151 laws which is six times more, Serbia 211 laws or 8.5 times more and Government of Croatia ten times more because it determined 257 laws.

Three state ministries (Foreign Affairs, for Human Rights and Refugees and Defense) did not determine a single law in 2011, whereas Ministry of Justice of BiH determined most laws, eight of them, and only one went through parliamentary procedure.

Speaking about slowness of formation of the new Council of Ministers after the elections in 2010, which took around 16 months, PR of CCI Majda Behrem-Stojanov precised that the new assembly started working by breaking the law on equality, because ''there are no women in the assembly not even to mention other violations''.

At the end they reminded that the unemployment rate in BiH is 43.6% and Macedonia and Kosovo are the only countries of the region behind BiH and they emphasized that the value of consumer basked increased by 160 and average salary by 11 KM.
