In Bosnia and Herzegovina, polling stations were opened. The country held a popular vote, citizens elect representatives at all levels of government. The election race was attended by 72 parties, not counting independents.
The control system in the Balkan state is very difficult: the country is divided into two Autonomous entities: Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Republika Srpska, each with its own set of authorities, each of them in turn, must equally represent the interests of Bosniaks, Serbs and Croats.
At the same time representatives of one of the entities — Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina is still unable to agree on the rules of voting in the upper house of their Parliament. The EU representatives warned Sarajevo that this conflict could lead to a constitutional crisis and paralysis of power.
In addition, scientists are predicting the lowest turnout in the history of independent country: the voters do not hide the disappointment from the same politicians and political programs unchanged.
