Dodik Accused of ‘Fascism’ Over Comments Targeting Election Authority Official

The comments Bosnia’s Presidency Chairman Milorad Dodik made when he criticized the decision by the election authority to annul election results in two towns, implying that a member of the institution voted in favor of the decision because she was married to a Bosniak, was met with widespread criticism. 

He complained about one of the members of the Commission from Republika Srpska, Vanja Bjelica-Prutina, voting in favor of the decision. 

“A lady who presents herself as representing the Serb people is married to a Bosniak in Sarajevo. Someone might say what this has nothing to do with anything. Just don’t”, Dodik said. 

His comment was met with criticism on social media. 

Co-Chairman of the US-Europe Alliance, Reuf Bajrovic, said that the comments represent “breathtaking Islamophobia and fascism at full display.” 

“Whenever I hear Dodik attack in the most ruthless and disgusting, raw, arrogant way, I have mixed with feelings of happiness that I am a traitor according to his distorted criteria, and disgust towards his lackeys and followers”, Bosnian economist Svetlana Cenic commented.
