Coalition’s observers will observe elections for mayors of municipalities of Domaljevac-Šamac and Istočni Drvar, but also for mayor and councilors for municipal assembly in a newly established municipality of Stanari. Early local elections in these three municipalities will be held on Sunday, February 1, 2015.
The elections for mayors of municipalities Kalesija and Živinice will be held on February 22, 2015.
In these five municipalities a total of 105 non-partisan observers will be present at 93 polling stations, in six mobile teams and five local election commissions.
With this engagement during early local elections, Coalition ‘Pod lupom’ wants to prevent any possible manipulations, provide implementation of the Election Law of BiH and protect free electoral will. The Coalition will base its observations on electoral process on reports received from observers and non-anonymous reports from citizens.
Citizens can report observed irregularities before and on the Election Day by calling the number 033 268 146.
We remind that during General Elections 2014, Coalition ‘Pod lupom’ had 2.800 non-partisan observers present at 1.348 polling stations and in 134 local election commissions, covering more than 25% of the total number of polling stations in BiH.
Their reporting on observed irregularities, along with reports received from citizens, helped to define recommendations for changes in election legislation which Coalition presented in December last year, as a part of its Final Report.
