The average age of the candidates elected at the last elections is 40 and Tihic said he was not satisfied with sex structure of elected mayors, stating that the only female candidate who won a mandate was Amra Babic.
Tihic told everyone that they were elected to always have in mind the main interest of the Party of Democratic Action, and that is a united Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Tihic said that the party has made progress by about 50 percent compared to the elections of 2010.
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.
People from the top SDA leadership - Amir Zukic, Asim Sarajlic, Sanjin Halimovic, SDA Cantonal Board President Denis Zvizdic and BiH's First Lady Sebiha Izetbegovic - attended the conference as well.
