Presidency candidate: Partnership with HDZ BiH and Bosniaks Izvor: N1

The first thing I will do when I am seated as Presidency member is demand that the Republika Srpska (RS) entity flag be allowed in the Presidency building and where ever I am at, the leading Serb candidate for Bosnia's Presidency Milorad Dodik said. He also announced a partnership with Bosniak and Croat representatives.

"The first thing I will do is wait for the official election results. I will wait for the composition of the Parliament to take my oath and then I’ll ask for the change of rules in the Presidency concerning the member from the RS. If there’s no RS flag in the Presidency building, I see no reason for going to that building," Dodik stressed during a press conference. "That’s my absolute request. I’ll ask for the change in regulations so that the RS flag can be placed where ever I go."

Over three million voters were eligible to vote in Bosnia’s general election this weekend and cast their vote for members of the state presidency, entity presidents and vice presidents as well as the members of the state, entity and cantonal parliaments.

After 80 percent of votes for Bosnia’s tripartite presidency were counted, the Central Election Commission of Bosnia and Herzegovina said that Bosnia’s new Presidency members are Sefik Dzaferovic with 37.30 percent of votes, Zeljko Komsic with 51.14 percent of votes and Milorad Dodik with 54.06 percent of votes.

Speaking about his work in Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina where the Presidency is based, Dodik said he would work on creating an all-Serb coalition consisting of some 10 Serb parties in the state parliamentary assembly.

But he also plans to create a partnership with the Croat Democratic Union (HDZ BiH) and “whatever Bosniak party wins the majority.”

“We will make a partnership with the HDZ BiH – I don’t see why they wouldn’t be part of the Council of Ministers or parliamentary leadership. We won’t mind cooperating either with the Social Democratic Party (SDP) or the Democratic Action Party (SDA). I can’t choose that, but it’s important that we have a strong policy there.”
