FBiH vice-president Kristo might become Bosnias PM.

By bne IntelliNews February 24, 2011
Borjana Kristo, vice-president of Bosnias Muslim-Croat Federation (FBiH,) might chair the new state government, Dnevni list daily reported quoting sources close to the ethnic Croat party Croatian Democratic Union BiH (HDZ BiH). We note that the next PM should be an ethnic Croat, according to the rotation principle between the three ethnic groups in the country. Thus, it is broadly expected that HDZ BiH, which the most popular ethnic Croat party, will nominate next PM. However, the Social Democratic Party (SDP), the winner of the October 2010 general elections, insists on nominating its candidate for the post. The inability of the ethnic Croat and Bosniak parties to agree on the issue is among the main reasons for the political stalemate in the country, as almost 5 months after the elections no government is formed. As a compromise, HDZ BiH is ready to nominate non-party candidate Berislav Kutle, CEO of local lender UniCredit Banka Mostar.
