Bosnian Serb MPs drop referendum

The parliament in Bosnia’s predominantly Serb entity has formally dropped a plan to hold a controversial referendum on the state court.

The National Assembly of Republika Srpska, RSNA, passed a decision to repeal the referendum at its session on Wednesday.

The referendum, as well as its abolition, was proposed by the President of RS Milorad Dodik, and would have challenged Bosnia’s highest judicial body – the state court and prosecution. Dodik maintains that the state court and prosecutor are biased against Serbs.
