Bosnia to Toughen Law on Parties' Transparency

Bosnia's parliament is due to approve a law designed to increase transparency in the finances of political parties - but some experts say the planned changes do not go far enough.

Bosnia's parliament will soon vote on a draft law to amend the current law on the financing of political parties, with the goal of increasing transparency.

The new law is designed to comply with the recommendations that the Group of States Against Corruption, GRECO, the Council of Europe's anti-corruption monitoring body, adopted in 2013 to improve the transparency of Bosnian political parties.

Although Prodanovic noted that “not all recommendations from GRECO have been implemented”, he insisted that “this law will definitely improve the transparency of the political parties and monitor their expenses during political campaigns.”
