Representatives of opposition parties in Bosnia’s Republika Srpska (RS) entity confirmed for N1 that they are planning another mass protest in Banjaluka on Sunday over alleged vote rigging.
According to the latest results from the Central Election Commission (CEC), Milorad Dodik will win the election for the post of RS President with an advantage of 5.5% over Jelena Trivic, the candidate of the Party of Democratic Progress (PDP).
This is contested by opposition parties in the entity, who demand a recount. They staged a mass protest on Thursday evening over the matter.
“Dignified, calm, and at the same time proud and defiant, our people showed their will yesterday, which is to put an end to election theft and to show their faith in Jelena Trivic and her victory. I am grateful to every person and proud of the determination that was shown during the protest and the walk last night in Banja Luka”, announced PDP leader Branislav Borenovic.
He said that, despite attempts at obstruction, the protest took place as planned.
