Reports of Widespread Fraud During the Mostar Elections
The Platform for Progress had hoped to pick up at least two of the 35 available city council seats during the local elections in Mostar. Mirsad Hadzikadić, president of the Platform for Progress, said this would have been a remarkable accomplishment for such a young political party in this ethnically divided city that had not seen a local election for 12 years. However, it was not to be. During my recent conversation with Hadzikadić, he said the reports of and evidence of unprecedented fraud that occurred throughout the process made that dream impossible.
