The recipe that according to Komsic the SDA failed to apply, therefore to form a government without legitimate representatives of one of constituent nations, should now obviously be applied by the SDP. The SDP should together with possible coalition partners, the Party for BH, NHI, and a few other minor parties who undeservedly received seats in the Parliament, form a coalition government without the HDZ, the party that received almost unanimous support of the Croats in the previous elections. Of course, a "coalition" with the international community is needed for something like that, the international community that has demonstrated with its changes of election rules and irritatingly biased election campaign on whose side it is.
The consequences of such an act, the formation of a de facto monoethnic government supported by the parties overwhelmingly supported by Bosniaks, and the certain crisis of government that would follow, are obviously irrelevant for Komsic and his comrades. Especially for Zlatko Lagumdzija who, in spite of the obvious fact that his "new concept of government" in the new circumstances means the imposition of the principle "one person - one vote" repeated several times in a TV program that there is no danger that one nation would dominate another one. Perhaps some "Freudian' analysis would show that that frequent repetition of the phrase that there will be no domination of one nation by another actually reveals subconscious realization to the contrary, but that is not important after all, because Komsic publicly supported that scandalous idea revealing that its supporters are prepared to realize it at any cost, including the exclusion of a whole nation from the executive authorities.
Actually, that was the pre-election plan whose unimpeded realization was prevented by the election results achieved by the SDP (let us recall, those results were significantly worse than expected) and the success of the HDZ, to which no one can deny the support of Croats. However, that failure hasn't discouraged its makers who are now trying to implement it using other means. However, the implementation of the machiavelian principle "goal justifies means" in this case hides other numerous dangers. The personal problem of Ivo Komsic, Kresimir Zubak or Ilija Simic is that they are prepared to participate in the game whose consequence should be the prevention of the Croat people to have its legitimate elected representatives in the executive authorities on the entity level. Their another personal problem is that they are prepared to take the role of some Bosnian Sejdo Bajramovic [a Roma politician, "representative" of Kosovo in the former Yugoslav presidency, picked by Milosevic after the dissolution of the Kosovo assembly] (Ivo has already been tested, he took the role of a table decoration in the Presidency of the former Republic of Bosnia-Hercegovina) in a possible new government. Also, Komsic's personal problem is that every time in public appearances he fails to say anything about corruption scandals tied to his name (true that is a problem shared by journalists who never fail to ask Jelavic how he built his house, but never ask Komsic why he used tax payer's funds to pay a $5,000 restaurant bill). Such political attitudes of Komsic, Zubak and Simic probably explain why they have so far failed to gather significant support among Croats.
However, something else is our general problem. Perhaps Croats in BH have made a bad choice voting for the HDZ BH. Perhaps that party is backward, exclusive, perhaps it carried a (too) heavy burden of wartime sins. However, it is the fact that the people have voted for them. Therefore, who has the right to artificially change the will of the people? The problem is not what happens today, the problem is what will happen tomorrow. If now it is allowed that someone else make decisions on behalf of BH Croats, that will be a dangerous precedent based on which in the future someone else will be able to interpret the will of one constituent nation, and that can only cause the weakening of the democratic forces. Even if, for example in 2001, the New Croatian Initiative (NHI) and the Croatian Peasant Party (HSS) receive the support of the Croats, who will guarantee them a spot in the government if at that time they are rejected by some Lagumdzija or any other Bosniak politician supported by a majority of his own people. The SDP and the Party for BH can claim that they are multiethnic parties, but no one serious will try to argue that 90 to 95 percent of their supporters are Bosniaks. Not without reason. Therefore a creation of the monoethnic government, under any pretext, even if it is named the Alliance for Changes, will hardly bring anything good. Such situation could be maintained only by force and blackmail. However, at least Lagumdzija and Komsic as "tested cadre" should know that Communists for 45 years had control of much more powerful repression instruments, made up all sorts of tools, including the "ethnic quotas", achieved some enviable economic successes, and again did not achieve anything else but disturbed inter-ethnic relations that prevented Bosnia-Hercegovina from efficiently defending itself in 1992 from the evil that fell on her.
