Valentin Inzko, the High Representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), on Friday urged BiH citizens to vote in the upcoming general elections this month.
During a visit to Prijedor in northern BiH, Inzko said in a statement that voters can "decide their destiny" if they actively participate the voting.
"Voters have the right to choose and it is important that they choose a better future for themselves," said Inzko, "If you do not go to the polls, then your fate will be decided by others."
BiH will vote on Oct. 12, followed by a complex process to bring in new governments, assemblies and presidencies in different levels.
Many people in BiH choose not to vote due to their disappointment with the system and feeling that elections will not bring about important changes, analysts said.
