On Sunday, October 7, Bosnian Serb nationalist leader Milorad Dodik declared victory with over 85% of ballots as the Serb member of Bosnia-Herzegovina's inter-ethnic presidency, as Deutsche Welle reports.
No official preliminary results have been made yet, but Dodik claims that “he won 56 percent of the vote with his opponent Mladen Ivanic taking 44 percent”.
"This is victory as clean as a whistle and I proclaim this victory," he said.
Yet, his opponent's party stated that the vote was still too close to call.
“The Bosnian Muslim party SDA declared victory for their candidate, Safik Dzaferovic. The Croat seat will go to Social Democrat Zeljko Komsic, who unseated incumbent Dragan Covic from the nationalist right,” the news agency reads.
Most of the countries voters cast their ballots on Sunday. The election officials described the voting as "extremely fair," yet, there were several incidents.
