Set of laws on excise duties that was proposed by the Council of Ministers of BiH will be definitely withdrawn from parliamentary procedure, according to decision of MPs in the House of Representatives of the Parliamentary Assembly of BiH by supporting the negative report of the Commission for Finance and Budget on the set of laws, with which was stipulated an increase in excise duties in BiH.
For a negative opinion on the Report of the commission voted 21 MPs, 14 of them were against, and 1 abstained, and with a sufficient entity majority was concluded that the law is rejected.
To recall, this is a set of laws which stipulates an increase in excise duties on oil, oil products and fuel in BiH for 15 fenings per liter, which was “shot down” at the session of the Commission for Finance and Budget by MPs: Salko Sokolovic (Independent block), Nenad Lalic (SDS), Damir Becirovic (DF), Jasmin Emric (A-SDA) and Aleksandra Pandurevic (SDS).
The majority of parliamentarians supported a negative opinion of the Commission for Finance and Budget of the House of Representatives of the Parliamentary Assembly of BiH, whose members expressed their dissatisfaction with the non-existence of protective mechanism for businessmen, inadequate explanation of reasons and the lack of any kind of analysis.
To recall, the executive power did not offer any alternative ways for the financing of infrastructure projects, but they submitted changes to the law that represent a condition for the second tranche of funds from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in the same parliamentary procedure four times in a row.
