The US Ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina, allegedly, pressured the state Central Election Commission (CEC BiH) by visiting the election watchdog and sending different messages to those sent by the US President, said the RS President and future Bosnian Presidency member from among the Serb people.

“Maureen Cormack’s been sending messages different from those of US President Donald Trump who keeps supporting the idea of no US’ interference in Bosnia’s internal matters, but Cormack doesn’t seem to want to stop," Milorad Dodik said.

According to him, "Cormack is desperate because her favourites didn’t win the election and now she’s trying to make a problem out of it."

Bosnia and Herzegovina held a general election on Sunday, October 7, where the citizens voted for three Presidency members, the state and entity parliaments and cantonal assemblies in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH) entity.

According to the CEC BiH, the future three presidency members are Sefik Dzaferovic, from among the Bosniak people, Zeljko Komsic from among the Croat people and Milorad Dodik from among the Serb people.

"It’s a fact that Cormack visited the CEC BiH some two days ago where she tried to influence Commission members. Now they’re trying to make a problem out of this. The only competent institution in this situation is the CEC BiH and she tried to influence them," Dodik noted.

He added that the US Ambassador visited Bosnia’s election watchdog to look for stories of irregularities.

"As Presidency member, I will demand that the Election Law be changed so that only the US Ambassador Maureen Cormack can count the ballots,” Dodik concluded.
