Bosniaks could end up as “Others” in the census. Instead of dismissing, Dodik will reorganize his party. Workers in Bosnia work up to 60 hours a week.
A large number of Bosniaks in the upcoming census could declare themselves as the “others” due to their unawareness but also due to traditional fears of self identification. If Bosniaks do not declare as so, they will be put in the category of the “others” and not in one of the three ethnic groups. Many still do not see the difference between being Muslim and Bosniak. Older or less educated people could be trapted there, said Ramiz Salkic, deputy speaker of the Parliament in Republika Srpska.
The Alliance of Independent Social Democrats lead by Milorad Dodik will not dismiss some of its municipal committees but it will in stead reorganize them. This came after bad results on municipal elections on October 7 when Dodik's party lost many municipalitites over the Serb Democratic Party. But Dodik already dismissed around 10 party committees due to bad election results.
