Bosnian PM Nermin Niksic has proposed the holding of snap elections as a result of massive anti-corruption protests that have gripped the country.

At present, Bosnia and Herzegovina's constitution does not allow for the holding of early elections.

Wednesday the PM of the Bosnian-Croatian federation within the larger Bosnia and Herzegovina confederative entity tabled to parliament a motion for legislative amendments that will make snap elections possible.

Monday protesters in many Bosnian cities consolidated calls for an overthrow of power and a new general vote.

Tuesday thousands of people gathered again across the country in protest against economic stagnation, unemployment and a perceived massive corruption among political elites.
