Bosnia swore in its three new presidents on Tuesday, with all eyes on Serb nationalist Milorad Dodik, who will be the first to take the helm of a government driven by ethnic divides .
The three men will rotate seats every eight months under the complex peace deal that ended Bosnia ’s 1990 s war and split
power between its three main groups, Bosnian Muslims (Bosniaks), Serbs and Croats .
In October voters chose nationalists to represent the first two communities , in a sign of how tribalism continues to shape politics more than two decades after the war.
The Three men took their oaths inside
Sarajevo’ s Presidency building before several dozen ambassadors and politicians.
Dodik, a pro-Russian politician who is sanctioned by the US, will co-lead with Bosnian Muslim president Sefik Dzaferovic, who hails from the nationalist conservative SDA party, and Croat president Zeljko Komsic .
Komsic , a Social Democrat , is an outlier among the two nationalists and has called for a “ Bosnia of citizens” that would transcend communal divisions. But he is already facing attacks from the main right- wing.
Croat party that accuses him of betraying his people and now threatens to obstruct activity in parliament .
“ It is currently very difficult to find a common denominator between Dodik, Komsic and Dzaferovic for constructive
work,” Bosnian political journalist Ranko Mavrak said in a radio interview .
“ These three will have to decide whether they want to act as a body that seeks points of agreement or creates problems,”
