      New Bosnia-Herzegovina tripartite presidency sworn in

      Released : Monday, November 06, 2006 10:59 AM

      BELGRADE, Nov 6, 2006 (Xinhua via COMTEX) -- Bosnia-Herzegovina's new
      tripartite presidency, which was elected in the general elections on Oct. 1,
      was sworn in on Monday in Sarajevo.

      During the ceremony in Sarajevo's presidential building, Serb Nebojsa
      Radmanovic, Croat Zeljko Komsic and Bosniak Haris Silajdzic officially took
      over the four-year presidential post from their predecessors Borislav
      Paravac, of the Serb Democratic Party, Ivo Miro Jovic, of the Croat
      Democratic Union, and Sulejman Tihic, of the Party of Democratic Action.

      Radmanovic, of the Alliance of Independent Social Democrats, is to chair the
      new presidency in the first eight-month rotation, to be followed by Komsic,
      of the Social Democratic Party, and then Silajdzic, of the Party for
      Bosnia-Herzegovina.

      "Bosnia-Herzegovina must progress. We have to become a real part of Europe,"
      Radmanovic said at the ceremony.

      Bosnia's peoples must overcome their differences and reconcile, while the
      new authorities must start reviving the economy immediately so that the
      country could progress towards Euro-Atlantic integration, he said.

      Bosnia's tripartite presidency is the first institution to be officially
      inaugurated since the elections. Political parties are still negotiating
      coalitions ahead of forming the parliament and the Council of Ministers or
      the central government.

      The election showed the country's three main ethnic groups had shifted away
      from the nationalist parties that led them into the bloody 1992-95 war.

      According to the constitution, Bosnia-Herzegovina is comprised of two
      entities -- the Srpska Republic and the Muslim-Croat federation. In addition
      to the central government and national parliament, each entity has its own
      government and parliament.
