Bosnians are divided on whether the European Union should lower its expectations from Bosnia or not as the country works its way to membership in the bloc, according to a survey.
40% of respondents in a poll of Banja Luka-based Prime Communications Agency said that the accession conditions for Bosnia should be less strict, while 40% said that the conditions should be the same for every aspiring candidate. One in five refused to state their opinion.
According to the survey, 45.1% of Bosnia’s Serbs, 41.1% of Bosniaks and 27% of Croats said the EU shouldn’t cut Bosnia any slack. One in two Croats, nearly one in two Bosniaks and one in three Serbs said the Union should lower the bar for Bosnia.
Prime Communications conducted the poll in April this year.
