Applicant was unable to vote for candidates of choice in 2022

29 August, 12:43

(ANSA) - BELGRADE, AUG 29 - The elections in Bosnia and Herzegovina "are not democratic" because, under the current political system, the main ethnic groups, i.e. the "constituent peoples" - Bosniaks, Croats, and Serbs - enjoy a privileged position, according to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in a ruling on an appeal presented by a Bosnian citizen-. The applicant denounced the fact that due to a combination of territorial and ethnic requirements applicable to legislative and presidential elections he could not vote for candidates of its choice in the 2022 elections.
