“Post-term severance” granted to 68 Entity officials at the end of their term of office. Unless they in the meantime find new jobs or retire, they will receive at least BAM 1,6 million from the budget.  Politicians who are successfully engaged in private business are also entitled to this perk.

Following the end of their mandate, 68 entity officials sought “post-term severance”, several months’ salary without work, which has not yet been abolished in the Entities.

In the Republika Srpska, this perk was granted to 20 former MPs, 13 representatives, and five ministers, and in the Federation of BiH to 17 MPs and 13 representatives from the Parliament.
