22 February, 15:53

    (ANSAmed) - SARAJEVO, FEBRUARY 22 - The party of the Bosnian-Serb leader and rotating president of the Bosnian tripartite presidency, Milorad Dodik, has won a rerun on Sunday of local elections in Srebrenica and Doboj, after the annulment for irregularity of the November 15 vote of the two municipalities of the Republika Srpska.

    The rerun of the vote was marked by the boycott of elections in Srebrenica by Muslim political parties. Less than 200 out of the 3,000 Bosniaks who had the right to cast a ballot voted on Sunday.

    According to Muslims, the rerun should have involved also the roughly 700 Bosniaks living abroad whose ballots were sent too late. Meanwhile, the numerous Serbians living in Serbia who are only formally registered as residents of Srebrenica could vote for the outgoing mayor, Serbian Mladen Grujicic. (ANSAmed).
