Bosnian Croats say they will form National Assembly

Bosnia’s main Croatian parties say national assembly will be first response to formation of government in the Bosniak-Croat entity that they see as “illegal”.

The Croatian Democratic Union, HDZ, and its sister party HDZ 1990 have launched an initiative for the formation of a Croat national assembly for municipalities and cantons with a Croat majority, with support from Bosnian Serb leaders.

The move on Monday came days after a government was formed in Bosnia’s Muslim-Croat entity, the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, leaving the HDZ and HDZ 1990 out of the new cabinet.

The two main Bosnian Croat parties have denounced the establishment of a government in the Muslim-Croat entity as illegal and say they will not obey it.
