President of the BiH CEC Dr. Irena Hadžiabdić said that Asset declaration forms of elected officials are again available on the web site of the BiH Cec as of today. The BiH CEC has developed a new application for entry of the data from the asset declaration forms, excluding the protected personal information. The application is adapted to the official languages in BiH, and the data on assets of officials elected at the 2014 General Elections were entered and the application was tested.

Entering the data from the Asset declaration forms for 141 elected municipal/city mayors will be done in the forthcoming period. Publication of these data can be expected in March 2018 and it will be followed by entry of the data for 3140 newly elected councilors at the 2016 Local Elections.
