At the invitation of the Government of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the European Union established a mission to observe the parliamentary elections there on 12 and 13 September 1998.
The European Union observed the parliamentary elections held on 12 and 13 September 1998, the second post-war general election. The vote took place almost two years to the day after the first polls and nearly three years after the signing of the Dayton Peace Agreement (DPA).
The observers were deployed throughout the country. They met government and electoral officials, candidates and political parties, civil society representatives and the media.
