By bne IntelliNews April 26, 2011
One-third of Bosnians support the establishment of a Croat entity, Nezavisne novine daily reported citing a poll by Prime Communications. Some 44.5% of the polled were against such a move, while 23.6% were hesitating or unwilling to say. The support for a Croat entity was stronger in Bosnias Serb Republic and weaker in the Muslim-Croat Federation. The establishment of a third entity in the country is supported by 53.6% of the people in the Serb Republic and by only 10% of the Bosnians living in the Muslim-Croat Federation. The majority of the Federation citizens, 58.6%, were against the idea and the share of opponents in the Serb Republic was 30.3%. Prime Communications surveyed 1,200 people, 600 each in the countrys two entities. We note that the Croat Peoples Assembly (HNS), gathering the most influential (the Croatian Democratic Union BiH HDZ BiH and HDZ 1990) and several minor ethnic Croat parties, adopted last week a resolution demanding constitutional reform and establishment of a Croat entity.
