As politicians embark on their final days of campaigning for Bosnian elections on 7 Oct., there was one small corner of the country where they couldn’t pass：Podgora, a poor hamlet fed up with the government’s broken promises.
The general elections would fill Bosnia’s highest political offices, from a three-person presidency down to district assemblies. However, the people of Podgora were disillusioned by a political class known chiefly for corruption and dysfunction.
"We were fed up that they made promises to ensure votes, but on the day after the elections, it was as if nothing had happened, as if they did not even come to see us," said Adi Silajdzic, 47.
A group of local men said Podgora has been neglected by authorities ever since the war. "We are the ones who replace bulbs for the street lights. We do not have a single garbage container, there is no bus, and the drinking water supply system was constructed before the war."
