February 16, 2018 9:30 AM

The Constitutional Court of BiH rejected the request for assessment of the constitutionality of the set of excise laws which led to the increase of fuel price in our country, and which was submitted by deputies of the House of Representatives of the Parliamentary Assembly of BiH. The Constitutional Court of BiH established that the set of laws is in accordance with the Constitution of BiH.

The decision will be submitted to the deputies within a month and it will be published on the web site of the Constitutional Court of BiH.

To recall, the request for the assessment of the constitutionality was submitted by deputies Mladen Bosic, Aleksandar Pandurevic, Borislav Bojic, Nenad Lalic, Momcilo Novakovic, Djordjo Krcmar, Zeljko Komsic, Damir Becirovic, Maja Gasal-Vrazalica, Mensura Beganovic, Hanka Vajzovic, Sasa Magazinovic, Denis Becirovic, Mirsad Mesic, Senad Sepic, Salko Sokolovic, Sadik Ahmetovic, Jasmin Emric and Zaim Backovic.

In the request for the assessment of constitutionality, deputies stated that the House of Representatives of the PA BiH violated provision of the Constitution of BiH that refer to the democratic principles, the competences of the Parliamentary Assembly of BiH and the Council of Ministers of BiH.

They especially emphasized the fact that the House of Representatives of the PABiH discussed the set of excise laws as the proposal of the House of Peoples of the PABiH, and not the proposal of the Council of Ministers of BiH. As they stated, numerous violations of the Rules of Procedure of the House of Peoples of the PABiH and the Rules of Procedure of the PABiH were committed. Deputies also noted that the House of Peoples of the PA BiH took over the function of the executive authority by taking over three law proposals from the Council of Ministers of BiH, which interrupted the function of the executive authority and the independence of BH authorities.

In the request for the assessment of the constitutionality, the Constitutional Court of BiH was also informed that the Parliamentary Assembly of BiH adopted different texts of two laws on the sets of excise taxes. To be exact, the versions of the laws in Bosnian and Croatian languages are different from the version of the law that was written in Serbian language. This refers to the Law on Amendments to the Law on Indirect Taxation System in BiH and the Law on Amendments to the Law on Payments to a Single Account and the Distribution of Revenues.
