Will Milorad Dodik win elections for Serb seat in Bosnia-Herzegovina Presidency?

Bosnian citizens will cast their vote on October 7 and will elect the members of Bosnia's tripartite Presidency, members of state and entity parliaments as well as cantonal assemblies' members.


Main candidates running for Serb seat in Bosnia-Herzegovina Presidency are Milorad Dodik and current member  Bosnia’s tripartite Presidency Mladen Ivanic.


Mladen Ivanic said he had no reason not to believe in his victory in this year’s election, in the run for Serb member of Bosnia’s tripartite Presidency. Speaking for N1, Ivanic said he could easily win against his main opponent, Milorad Dodik, current President of the Republika Srpska (RS), Bosnia’s Serb-dominated entity.


Four years ago, Ivanic won the election against his main opponent Zeljka Cvijanovic, the candidate of the Alliance of Independent Social Democrats (SNSD), the party led by Dodik.


The Republika Srpska President is well known for his staunchly pro-Russian views. During the meeting in the Russian resort of Sochi with Putin, the Kremlin leader wished the pro-Russian leader of the Bosnian Serbs success in the October 7 elections, media in Bosnia have reported.
