Bosnian Croat Presidency member names Serbian opposition leader as advisor Izvor: Predsjedništvo BiH

The Croat member of Bosnia’s presidency hired on Wednesday the leader of Serbia’s opposition Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), Cedomir Jovanovic, to be his advisor.

Jovanovic is an outspoken critic of Serbian and Bosnian Serb authorities because of their policy in Bosnia, which he claims is nationalistic, and because of their denial that Serb forces committed genocide in the eastern Bosnian town of Srebrenica in 1995.

As per his wish, Jovanovic will be serving in the cabinet of left-leaning Zeljko Komsic pro-bono.

The move came soon after the current Chairman of Bosnia’s Presidency, hardline Bosnian Serb leader Milorad Dodik, named renown filmmaker Emir Kusturica as an advisor.

The pro-Russian close ally of Dodik has a Muslim background but he converted years ago to Serb Orthodoxy and gave himself the name Nemanja.

Although now both are Serbs, Kusturica and Jovanovic have completely opposite worldviews when it comes to politics.

Jovanovic has been advocating a thorough confrontation with the past in the region and the establishment of new relations among the nations of former Yugoslavia, based on mutual respect.

Kusturica developed into what many see as a Serb ultra-nationalist.
