Milorad Dodik, the Bosnian Serb politician, leader of nationalists, has announced his victory as the Serbian member of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina as Deutsche Welle reported.
According to the message, he gained more than 85% of the votes. Despite the fact that officially he is not proclaimed a new member of the three-member presidency, Dodik stated that he has won over opponent Mladen Ivanic with 56% of the votes.
"This is a victory as clean as a whistle and I proclaim this victory," Dodik said. However, the opponents of the possibly new Serb member that it is hard to say about the victory now.
Milorad Dodik is quite a doubtful figure for the post of the Serb member of the presidium as he is well-known due to his pro-Russian attitudes. He stands for separation of the Serbian part of the country and it carries the risk of the escalation of the tension in the country.
Earlier it was stated that Safik Dzaferovic became a member of the presidium from the Bosnian Muslim party SDA and Zeljko Komsic got the victory as the Croatian representative.
