politics and government of
Bosnia and Herzegovina

Bosnia and Herzegovina elects on national level the rotating presidency and a legislature. The members of the presidency are elected for a four year term by constituencies referring to the three ethnic groups. The candidate with the most votes in a constituency is elected. The Parliamentary Assembly (Parlamentarna Skupština) has two chambers. The House of Representatives (Predstavnički dom/Zastupnički dom) has 42 members, elected for a four year term by proportional representation in each ethnic group. The House of Peoples (Dom Naroda) has 15 members, appointed by the parliaments of the two Entities. Bosnia and Herzegovina has a multi-party system, with numerous parties in which no one party often has a chance of gaining power alone, and parties must work with each other to form coalition governments. Every ethnic community has its own dominant political party.
