With over 90 percent of ballots counted, Bosnia’s government appears likely to remain in the hands of Serb, Bosniak and Croat nationalists. Serb, Bosniak and Croat nationalists look to have held on to Bosnia’s three-person presidency, according to partial results released on Monday. Under Bosnia’s complex electoral system, the country as a whole has three presidents – one from each of the country’s major ethnic groups. Over 90 percent of votes from Sunday’s elections are now counted. The country is also divided between two semi-autonomous entities, Republika Srpska and the Muslim-Croat Federation.
While the Serbian seat remains contested by two nationalist parties, Dragan Covic of the Croat HDZ BIH party and Bakir Izetbegovic from the Muslim SDA have claimed to have locked in their victories, according to Al Jazeera.
The SDA and Serbian SNSD also appear to have won big in the national assembly, though final results are yet to be released.
In the semi-autonomous Serbian region, the Republika Srpska, incumbent president Milorad Dodik is leading in the count.
