Who wil win Srebrenica?

All voters are curious about who will win the election for mayor's position in Srebrenica between a Bosnian and a Serbian candidate. Srebrenica was the site of a genocide in July 1995.

Certain problems erupted in local elections in Bosnian city of Srebrenica on Sunday afternoon as a number of Serbs insisted on casting ballots without showing residential papers proving their addresses.
