Reis Ulema tweeted that the opposition Civil Alliance leaders Reuf Bajrovic and Emir Suljagic would say that the Olympics was a plot of the international Olympics committee members to divide Bosnia among themselves, alluding to the opposition party’s accusations that the SDA is in cahoots with the Bosnian Croat HDZ to split the Federation among themselves.

D. P. tweeted that the Una-Sana Canton would organize an A-Olympics, because some SDA members in the Canton left the party and organized their A-SDA party.

Genijalan ud tweeted that the price of Olympic torch in the official report would be 70 million, alluding to corruption in public procurement.
