Bosnians are voting in general elections that will show whether people are more concerned about the 44% unemployment rate or still mired in wartime nationalist divisions.

The incumbent leader of the Serb half of the country based his campaign on promises of Serb secession while his opponents focused on fighting poverty and corruption.

The country’s Bosniacs and Croats who share the other half have their own nationalistic disputes but are more focused on the economy.

The country’s four million people are governed by four layers of government with overlapping authorities.

People are choosing over 500 officials. Bosnia has 162 ministers – one for every 26,000 people.

Today voters will choose a three-member presidency that represents both parts of the country, plus parliaments and local officials.
