Final results of BiH 1 October elections announced

Wed 18 Oct 2006

Almost three weeks after general elections in Bosnia-Herzegovina, the Central Election Commission (SIP) on Wednesday announced the final election results which confirm the forecasts of most political parties.

Zeljko Komsic was officially declared the winner of the race for the post of the Croat member of the collective state presidency, with 116,000 or 39.56 percent of votes.

Komsic is followed by Ivo Miro Jovic, who won 29.14 percent of votes.

Haris Silajdzic won convincingly in the race for the Bosniak (Muslim) member of the state presidency, with 62.8 percent of votes, while Nebojsa Radmanovic was elected the Serb member with 53.2 percent of votes.

The strongest party in the Parliament of Bosnia-Herzegovina is the Party of Democratic Action (SDA), which won nine of 42 seats.

It is followed by the Party for Bosnia-Herzegovina (SBiH) with eight seats, the Party of Independent Social Democrats (SNSD) with seven seats, and the Social Democratic Party (SDP) with five seats.

The Croatian Democratic Union of Bosnia-Herzegovina (HDZ BiH) won three seats, and its main rival, HDZ 1990, two seats.

Five parties, including the People's Party - Work for Progress (NSRZB), won one seat each.

The majority of seats in the Parliament's House of Representatives was won again by the SDA - 28 of 98.

The SDA is followed by the SBiH with 24 seats, the SDP with 17, the HDZ BiH with eight and the HDZ 1990 with seven seats.

Among the Croat deputies there is one representative of the coalition HSP-New Croatian Initiative and three representatives of the NSRZB.

In the Serb entity, the SNSD party of Milorad Dodik will have 41 of 93 seats in the entity parliament, but this will not be sufficient for the party to form a government on its own.

SNSD candidate Milan Jelic was elected the entity's president.

Davor Cordas was elected the Croat vice-president of the Serb entity, which is the first more important post on this level for his HDZ BiH party.
