Alliance for Change
The main opposition political alliance of the day, the (sound familiar?) Alliance for Change, SZP, attempted to place itself at the helm of these protests. As ever, the opposition was divided and fragmented. Aside from the SZP, another force, the Serbian Renewal Movement, SPO, was also vying for leadership of the opposition.
Three major Bosnian Serb opposition parties, along with six other political groups, joined forces on Monday in an attempt to defeat the coalition centred around Republika Srpska President Milorad Dodik's Alliance of Independent Social Democrats, SNSD, which has been in power in the entity for 12 years.
