Bosnia’s general election kicked off Sunday morning at exactly 7 am with slight delays in some towns in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The voting process in the municipality of Miljevina (eastern Bosnia) was delayed because to one electoral board member who was late for the beginning of the vote.
The election was also late in seven polling places in the Gradiska municipality (northern Bosnia), while 86 other polling stations opened on time.
The city of Tuzla opened all of its polling places at exactly 7 am, apart from one polling place which was 40 minutes late.
Three polling places in the municipality of Celinac, near the city of Banjaluka, northern Bosnia, were also lat because of a power outage.
Bosnian citizens will have the opportunity to vote for members of the tripartite state Presidency, entity presidents and vice presidents as well as members of the state, entity and cantonal parliaments.
The polling station in the Embassy of Bosnia to Serbia opened at 7 a.m., as well. This is the only polling station for Bosnia’s general election in this country.
Other delays recorded by Bosnia's Central Election Commission ranged from 15 to 30 minutes and the election watchdog said four polling places in Velika Kladusa (north-west Bosnia) were late for opening; seven polling places in Cazin (north-west Bosnia) were also late to open as were 15 polling places in Bihac (north-west Bosnia), and Brcko (north Bosnia) 7 polling places.
The most delays were recorded in the city of Banjaluka, where the watchdog recorded up to 100 delays due to technical issues, but the watchdog said all the issues were resolved on time.
