Ruth Hyde, chief executive of Oadby and Wigston DC, one of more than 20 council officers helping supervise the elections, was impressed with the way the elections were organised: 'The Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe really have done well, especially in the remote rural areas,' she said.
A heavy military presence at potential flash points by I- For, the peace implementation force and an unwillingness by refugees to cross between the two parts of the country, the Muslim-Croat Federation and the Republika Srpska, to vote, also helped avoid major problems.
The officers were mostly based in Republika Sprska, and were responsible for overseeing the preparations at polling stations (pictured), any problems on the day and overseeing the count of four ballots - for different parliaments or presidents - in each area.
'It's the same as anywhere'. If your names not on the list, you can't vote,' said Mr Box.
