Pupovac tries to move Bosnian Serbs with Croatia's citizenship to the polls

Croatian Serb leader Milorad Pupovac and the Bosnian Serb entity president, Milorad Dodik, on Monday held talks in Banja Luka on animating Serbs with Croatian citizenship in that entity to go to the polls during Croatia's forthcoming parliamentary election, set for 8 November.

"We are continually cooperating and meeting and putting together an agenda of important issues," Dodik told reporters after the meeting with Pupovac. He added that they had spoken about the possibility of support for ethnic Serbs wishing to return to Croatia, particularly through infrastructure projects.

Recently Bosnia and Herzegovina's state-level government gave its consent for setting up 25 polling stations in the Croatian embassy and consulates in Sarajevo, Mostar and Banja Luka  for Croatia's election.

Croatian citizens living in Bosnian and Herzegovina may cast their ballots at those polling stations from 7 am to 7 pm on 7 and 8 November.

They are required to register aprior for voting by 28 October.
