Dodik should apologize to Nikolic and resign
SDS President Mladen Bosic today called on RS President Milorad Dodik to apologize to the newly appointed Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic because he participated against him in the election campaign in this country.
He expressed the expectation that Nikolic will overlook the fact that Milorad Dodik actively participated in a campaign against him. "SDS warned Dodik to not do that and that no one from RS should interfere in the election process in Serbia. Unfortunately, we got a situation that the RS President in some kind of way misused his function by including himself in the campaign in Serbia. We suggest that Dodik apologize to the newly appointed president of Serbia due to his participation in the campaign, which would be the least that could be done to, in a certain way, open the path for normal cooperation," Bosic said.
He believes that Nikolic, in the interest of Serbia and RS, will participate in RS institutions, which SDS supports.
With congratulations to Nikolic on his victory as president, Bosic at a press conference in Banja Luka rated that it is good for Serbs from the left and right side of Drina and he hopes that relations between
RS and Serbia will move on to a higher level, and not as up to now to be declarative.
"Instead of a hug and photographing in front of cameras, we expect the development of special and parallel connections between RS and Serbia," Bosic pointed out.
Although the participation of the RS President in the campaign in Serbia opened, he says, new questions and led to a situation that in RS alone, all government is concentrated in one place, in the hands of one man.
"SDS proposes to Milorad Dodik that he leave his post as SNSD president and set up as a president of all citizens and continue the trend opened by Croatian President Ivo Josipovic by 'freezing' all party activities, and what is announced by Tomislav Nikolic, and Milo Dukanovic retreated from his position as Montenegrin president as well. It's time that the process of democratization and departyization of society opens in RS. Without separation of party from state functions there is none of this process, which is a cancer in RS society and separates RS citizens into those who can get a job, have the privileges or belong to the ruling party, and those who don't," the SDS President pointed out.
Bosic added he doesn't see a reason to raise tensions and policy changes in the region after the victory of the SNS candidate in Serbia.
