Tihic pointed to the growth of support to his party of about 100,000 votes, compared with the elections in the 2010.
He stressed that the SDA has confirmed its pro-Bosnian orientation by winning the mayor positions in RS, like Srebrenica and Vukosavlje, and recalled the 11 seats the party won in Srebrenica.
Tihic expressed the hope that the former coalition partners will show understanding when it comes to restoring a parliamentary majority in its original condition.
Camil Durakovic, a joint candidate of SDA, SDP, SBB and SBiH for mayor of Srebrenica, next to the new mayor of the municipality of Novi Grad Sarajevo Semir Efendic, the youngest mayor, was greeted with thunderous applause.
