Member of the Estonian Delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Sven Sester will observe the general elections held in Bosnia and Herzegovina on Sunday in the capital of the country Sarajevo.

“For Bosnia and Herzegovina, the elections are a possibility to show the commitment of the country to democratic processes,” Sester said. He added that there was a strong international interest in the country’s democratic development and reforms. “Hopefully, on Sunday we will be able to see highly competitive elections that meet international standards.”

Nearly a hundred members of national parliaments will observe the parliamentary elections in Bosnia and Herzegovina within the framework of the mission organised by the OSCE PA. In total, over 400 observers will participate in the mission. The purpose of the mission is to make sure that the elections conform to the democratic principles set out in the OSCE Copenhagen Document from 1990.

Election observation missions have been an important part of OSCE’s activities since 1993. The missions monitor whether the elections are conducted legitimately and respect the democratic standards.
