Believe your own eyes: These are parliamentarians who voted for corruption

Date: Apr 02, 2014

Bosnia and Herzegovina






With 20 votes for, 17 votes against and four restrained, Parliament passed a Law on Public Procurement with 25 amendments previously adopted by the Commission for Budget and Finance.

Among the adopted amendments, amendments from the respected NGOs are not included. The day before the session 70 NGOs sent an open letter to protest the failure to adopt anti-corruption amendments to the Commission for Budget and Finance.

The letter was signed by representatives of the Association of Employers of BiH, Open Society Fund BiH, Association of citizens Tender, Transparency International BiH and the Anti-Corruption Network ACCOUNT.

The above-mentioned organizations, with the support of more than 70 non-governmental organizations, in the previous period, prepare amendments to the Law on Public Procurement, which aimed to prevent corruption in the public procurement system in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

None of the proposed amendments was not adopted, although they received public and political parties support at an earlier stage.

At the last session, the Commission for Budget and Finance of the House of Representatives were adopted only cosmetic changes to the Law and which, in the opinion of the NGO sector, did not meet the minimum requirements for improving the legislation in this very problematic area.

Anti-Corruption Network ACCOUNT therefore publishes the names of delegates and how they voted.
