Opposition parties win major cities in Bosnia’s local vote

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina: Opposition candidates have won council seats and mayoral posts in Bosnia’s biggest cities, dealing a painful blow to the long-entrenched nationalists in nationwide municipal elections held amid a major surge in coronavirus infections and deaths. Riding a wave of dissatisfaction with how nationalist and right-wing parties are handling the pandemic, moderates took power in the capital, Sarajevo, and the biggest Serb-run town, Banja Luka, as well as in other bigger cities across the country. - AP ?
