Bosnian participation still confusing!
SARAJEVO, BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA – Bosnian national broadcaster announced officially that the country is still unknown whether to participate in Vienna’s Eurovision Song Contest. In the meantime BH Eurosong page on Facebook updated their cover picture with the one of Hari Mata Hari; not to forget the earlier statement of Jon Ola Sand that we had 39 for Vienna. OK what the heck is going on?
Bosnian national broadcaster originally asked for an extension to October 15th deadline to withdraw without penalty and seems that they got that deadline on November 14th. The bad financial situation of BHRT is now unknown as the country had to withdraw after the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest (although many said it was motivated by Turkey who also withdraw from the contest since then).
Though BHRT says that they are interested to take part in the 60th edition of the contest but the BHRT revenues have been dramatically decreased and they are keep searching for funds and sponsorship (a procedure a bit complicated in the country).
