High Representative Valentin Inzko calls on citizens of Mostar to make the election Sunday a celebration of democracy by getting out and voting in large numbers, therefore exercising their democratic right that has been denied to them for so long.
“Twelve years since their last opportunity to vote for their local representatives, I now invite citizens of Mostar to respond with a robust turnout on Sunday’s local elections. Use your personal Bonn Powers and vote!
Additionally, I appeal to citizens to vote, based on issues and proposed solutions that are aimed at moving Mostar forward. The beautiful, world-famous city of Mostar and all Mostarians, especially the youth, deserve no less than others in BiH, the opportunity to have a bright and prosperous future and to live in a vibrant and economically thriving city where they can build a future for themselves. You have all the potentials for success. Dear Mostarians, use your right to vote, make your voice heard, and do not let others decide for you or your city,” said the High Representative.
The High Representative also urged voters to protect themselves and the people working at the polling stations by adhering to the prescribed epidemiological measures and following the instructions issued by the City Election Commission. He also commended the BiH Central Election Commission in organizing two consecutive elections under difficult circumstances.
