Member of the Main Committee of the Party of Independent Social Democrats Srđan Mazalica assessed that the idea of returning to the original Dayton in the sense of the institutional structure of the country should be nurtured in the future, including an eventual exit from Bosnia and Herzegovina in the event that others do not agree to return to compromise, which is effectively a peace agreement.

“Whereas 27 years ago it spelled a compromise to some and defeat to others, today the Dayton Agreement is a victory to some and still a defeat to others,” Mazalica said to Srna.

He said that the Dayton Agreement’s biggest problem is the fact that it was not initially understood as a compromise by all sides, so that, he stressed, the institutional structure of Bosnia and Herzegovina saw large-scale transformations, while the Constitution as set by the Dayton Agreement did not change significantly.

Next Monday, November 21, is the 27th anniversary of the day when the General Framework Agreement for Peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina and its 12 annexes were signed in the United States Air Force base Wright-Patterson in Dayton, ending the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina and establishhing its legal and constitutional order.

This agreement created the national community of Bosnia and Herzegovina, composed of two entities, the Republic of Srpska and the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, which are the signatories of all annexes.
