After the Central Election Commission of BiH (CEC BiH) made a decision on calling and holding repeat elections for the Mayor of Doboj and the Assembly of Doboj, and the Mayor of Srebrenica and the Municipal Assembly of Srebrenica, the Coalition for free and fair elections “Under the Magnifying Glass” (Pod lupom) began with the activities of the organization of non-partisan observing of the repeat elections in Doboj and Srebrenica.
The Coalition reminds that on the day of the regular, annulled Local Elections 2020 in Doboj, their accredited non-partisan observers were prevented from observing the election process, which the Central Election Commission of BiH stated as one of the reasons for annulling the elections in Doboj
“The ban on access to accredited observers is a direct violation of the BiH Election Law. The repeat elections are an opportunity for the voting process in Doboj and Srebrenica to be held in accordance with the election rules,” said the project manager of the Coalition, Dario Jovanović.
According to him, the Coalition will try to have one non-partisan observer at each polling station in Doboj and Srebrenica, “which will be a significant contribution to ensuring free and fair elections.”
The public will be informed about the entire election process through press releases, press conferences and social networks.
