Serbian President denies interfering with election in RS
Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on Thursday he has never interfered with the election in Bosnia's Republika Srpska (RS) entity but that he is following the election campaign.
Vucic's statement came in response to Mladenin Ivanic, the Serb member of Bosnia's tripartite Presidency who told Bosnian media that Serbia's leadership should not make any difference among Serb people in the upcoming election.
“I think that Serbia's leadership should see all of us living >> Pročitaj celu vest na sajtu N1 televizija << on this side of the Drina river as the same and that there should be no division into loved and less loved” said Ivanic, who will run for the same post in the October election as a candidate form the RS.
Commenting on the alleged visit of Serbia's President to the RS on October 5, two days before the general election in Bosnia, Ivanic said RS President Milorad Dodik, his political opponent, is involving Serbia's leadership in the election campaign way too much.
“It is on Serbia's leadership to decide on that,” Ivanic said for Vijesti.ba news portal.
Vucic dismissed the allegations of intrefernece in the elections adding he was not sure to whom Ivanic exactly referred here.
“I wish he gave this kind of a lesson to some others who are openly interfering with the election in Republika Srpska,” said Serbia's President without specifying who is he talking about.
