Encouraged by the fact that local elections were not held in Mostar for many years, and that its citizens were therefore denied the right to vote as well as the right to run in local elections, Local Democracy Agency Mostar came up with an idea in 2016, as part of the “Youth Take Over” project activity, to organize an action called “Elect Mostar”. This “ad hoc” action, which involved organizing “fictitious local elections” on the day of real local elections in the rest of Bosnia and Herzegovina, was supported by Mostar CSO’s dealing with youth issues: the Youth Council of Mostar, OKC Abrasevic, Association of young psychologists and Youth Power. The goal was to restore the basic democratic right of the citizens of Mostar to vote and to be elected. The action was extremely covered by local and regional media, and noticed by the international community and foreign missions in BiH. The lack of reaction was evident when it came to political actors and leading political options in BiH.
