Bosnia's local elections initially called for October 4 will be postponed for November 15, N1 has learned in the Central Election Commission.

The postponement is a consequence of the lack of the state budget and inability to plan the essential procurement procedures for the electoral process, according to sources.

According to the Election Law, local elections are financed from the state budget and the budgets of local communities in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was estimated that this year's vote would cost some 4.5 million Euro.

The Central Election Commission (CEC) decided earlier this month to call the local election across the country, except in Mostar, the southern ethnically divided town that has not seen elections since 2008 due to law provisions that were marked as unconstitutional and have not been changed to date because of political disagreements.
