The vote was as complex as the country itself. At the level of the overall institutions, the voters determined the two chambers of the central parliament against the background of growing ethnic conflicts and the three -person presidency.

The country divided into a Serbian and a Croatian-Muslim sub-state with a central government chose on three levels: In addition to the entire state level, the Republica Srpska, the Serbian part of the country, the regional MPs as well as the president and his two deputies were elected. Observers assume that the nationalist Hardliner Milorad Dodik will again become President of Republika Srpska. The 63-year-old had already held this position twice.

Bosnia-Herzegovina chooses Parlaments and President

 Bosnia-Herzegovina chooses Parlaments and President in Bosnia-Herzegovina started nationwide elections on Sunday. Around 3.3 million citizens are asked to choose the three -member state leadership, the federal parliament and the parliaments in the two largely independent parts of the country. The small Balkans suffer from the opposites between its ethnic groups, some of which support their nationalist parties. About half of the population are Muslim Bosnians, a third Orthodox Serbs and around 15 percent Catholic Croats.

On the entire state level, the presidency consists of a Croatian, a Bosniac Muslim and a Serbs who alternate in the chair every eight months.

The central government is responsible for the military, the judicial system, tax policy, foreign trade and diplomacy. The sub-states have their own police, education and health systems.

The complex and less functional political system in the Balkan state emerged from the 1995 Dayton Agreement, with which the civil war of the 90s had ended with 100,000 deaths.

Since 1995, the UN Security Council has appointed a high representative who monitors the implementation of the peace agreement. German Christian Schmidt currently has the office. The envoy is formally authorized to intervene in the legislation and to dispose of elected politicians. The office was originally supposed to expire in 2007, but the mandate was extended due to the political instability and failure of the local politicians.

A few moments after the polling stations were closed, Schmidt announced a number of changes to the Bosnian electoral law. This step gave rise to fears that it could lead to new instability in the political landscape. The new measures would aim to "improve the functionality of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and to ensure timely implementation of the results of the elections of October 2022," said Schmidt.
