[JURIST] The United States has written the blueprints for a new constitution in Bosnia [government website; CIA backgrounder] that aims to create a more centrally governed parliamentary democracy, the Guardian reported Thursday. The text is the result of seven months of secret negotiations between US officials and Bosnian politicians and is said to be fully backed by the US Department of State [official homepage]. The new document is hoped to simplify and stabilize the current constitution [text], which created one of the world's most ineffective and complex governments. Leaders of Bosnia's eight main governing parties are expected to travel to Brussels on Friday for negotiations on the draft which would create legislative and executive branches that wield the full powers of the entire nation. This full and "normalized" government would be Bosnia's first since its creation in 1995 following the Yugoslavian war. The Guardian has more.
