Nationalist parties win Bosnia’s parliamentary vote, preliminary results show


SARAJEVO (Reuters) – Croat, Muslim and Serb nationalist parties won Bosnia’s parliamentary election, State Election Commission preliminary results showed on Monday. The largest Muslim Bosniak SDA party secured the most votes in Bosnia’s autonomous Bosniak-Croat Federation and its Bosniak-dominated cantons. Its candidate Sefik Dzaferovic won the Bosniak seat in the inter-ethnic presidency. A coalition led by the largest Croat party HDZ won the most votes of Croats in the Federation parliament and in the majority Croat cantons. More than two decades after a war in which 100,000 people died, leading Serb, Croat and Muslim Bosniak parties campaigned on nationalist tickets, reviving wartime pledges while failing to offer clearly defined economic or political visions.
