The National Democratic Institute (NDI) has released the findings from its recent survey in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). On October 3, Bosnia and Herzegovina will hold presidential and legislative elections. Although the situation in the country has improved since a devastating war fifteen years ago, the political climate has deteriorated since the last presidential election. The survey explores citizens' general attitudes, as well as their feelings towards, government, politicians, EU/NATO integration, and the territorial arraignment. The survey finds a static electorate that feels the country is headed in the wrong direction. Citizens are generally dissatisfied with government's performance and believe that unemployment is the biggest challenge facing the country.
