Denis Becirovic, the BiH Presidency candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), left the N1 studio on Wednesday because the leader of the Party of Democratic Action (SDA), Bakir Izetbegovic, who he said was “his only opposing candidate” running for the post, refused to join the debate. The only candidate for the Bosniak post in the tripartite Presidency to remain in the studio was Mirsad Hadzikadic, the leader of the Platform for Progress.
The only candidate for the Bosniak post in the tripartite Presidency to remain in the studio was Mirsad Hadzikadic, the leader of the Platform for Progress.
Izetbegovic, Becirovic and Hadzikadic were supposed to speak about their plans and election campaigns.
Izetbegovic, however, refused to participate.
“What did you, as the producer of the show, get as an explanation regarding why my only opponent for the post of member of the BiH Presidency is not here? It is known that polls show that this is a race between Bakir and me, although I respect Hadzikadic. I came tonight out of respect for you and the audience. He decided not to come. Unless he shows up, I’m leaving the studio. We are waiting for Bakir Izetbegovic!” Becirovic said before then really leaving the studio.
