octubre 2, 2022 at 19:55 GMT +00:00 · Published

Residents of Banja Luka flocked to polling stations to cast their vote in the General elections that are being held in Bosnia and Herzegovina on Sunday.

Footage shows Milorad Dodik, a Member of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, casting his vote.

"I think that the people understood and that we all understood that only gathering, peace and stability can ensure a secure future," the politician said.

Dodik is a controversial figure who has attempted to downplay the 1995 Srebrenica massacre and who has denied that Serbian actions in the Bosnian War constituted genocide.

Bosnian general election will decide the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina as well as the national, entity and cantonal governments. A total 3,368,666 citizens were registered to vote.

Bosnia and Herzegovina has a presidency made up of three members drawn from the country`s different ethnic groups, one Serb representative is chosen by the voters of the Republic Srpska and the voters of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina elect the Bosniak and Croat representatives.
