“Bosnian Serb leader Milorad Dodik, who regularly threatens secession, said Friday he would run for Bosnia’s tripartite presidency later this year despite believing it was a ‘failed’ state.

Since the Dayton peace accords ended Bosnia’s devastating 1990s conflict, the Balkan country has consisted of two semi-independent entities: the Serbs’ Republika Srpska (RS) and a Muslim-Croat federation.

Each has its own government but they share weak central institutions, including the joint presidency comprising members from the three main ethnic groups: a Bosnian Muslim, a Croat and a Serb.

‘I will definitely be a candidate for membership of the presidency,’ Dodik, 58, told Serbian state-run RTS television but repeated his belief that Bosnia was a ‘failed country.'” (Yahoo)
