Bosnian poll hailed as triumph

BOSNIA'S ELECTIONS were hailed as the most successful since Bosnia's war ended three years ago. Turn-out in the two days of voting was 78 per cent of the 2.7 million registered voters. The election pitted hard-line ethnic parties that oppose the 1995 Dayton peace agreement's goal of a non-ethnic unitary state against more moderate ethnic leaders who support the peace treaty.
