SARAJEVO (Reuters) - Bosnian Serb nationalist leader Milorad Dodik won the job of a Serb member in the country’s tripartite inter-ethnic presidency with 55 percent of votes, his party said based on 72 percent of ballots counted.

Party spokesman Radovan Kovacevic also said that Zeljka Cvijanovic, a candidate for the president of Bosnia’s autonomous Serb Republic, was leading over her rivals with 55 percent of votes, based on 17.6 percent ballots counted.
