Serbian official says that Bosniak Council elections need to be held this year

Serbian Human and Minority Rights Minister Milan Marković has said that elections for the Bosniak National Council will need to be held by the end of the year.

“This is a national interest and a need of the Bosniak community and it would be best if this issue was tackled before winter,” Marković said and added that it was in Serbia’s interest for everyone to take part in the elections and this was the reason why talks with all lists’ representatives were underway.

He confirmed that he had conferred with Islamic Community in Serbia Chief Mufti Muamer Zukorlić on Wednesday and added that he would not like to discuss the talks with lists’ representatives and influential figures from Sandžak.

The minister said that he would not lay special emphasis on any of the meetings, adding that the topics of the talks comprised issues that were already familiar to the public and those that are less known, all of which were relevant to the life of people in Sandžak.
