BANJALUKA – The results of the Republika Srpska Day referendum cannot be annulled, Chairman of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Presidency Mladen Ivanic said in Banjaluka Friday.

Only the consequences of the referendum can be annulled, Ivanic, the Serb member of the tripartite rotating presidency, told the Avaz.ba news portal.

The Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina on Thursday annulled the results of the September 25 Republika Srpska Day referendum due to what it said was non-compliance with the BiH constitution.

Republika Srpska President Milorad Dodik told the Glas Srpske daily the ruling was a direct attack on a nation’s democratic right.
