Government formation[edit]

While Bosniak Bakir Izetbegovic was the only member of the tripartite presidency to be re-elected, Serb Mladen Ivanic was chosen as the first president. Izetbegovic said: "In the next four years, I expect the presidency to be a strong engine driving this country forward on the path of reform toward reaching our most important goal — to become a rightful member of the union of free and democratic European nations." Ivanic said that "people in Bosnia-Herzegovina are exhausted and tired of quarrels and confrontations, trapped in a vicious circle of economic crisis, enormous unemployment. They are depressed from a lack of ideas on how this situation could change. This must change." He further added that everyone's interest was served by cooperating with both the U.S. and Russia.[3]
