Jarl Hjalmarson Foundation arranged on March 11-13 together with the Moderate’s sister party in the region, Party of Democratic Progress (PDP), a conference on campaign and communication in the small town of Jahorina in the Serbian entity of Bosnia and Herzegovina – Republika Srpska.
The political landscape of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) bears the stamp of ethnical parties with strong support in each ethnical group respectively as well as entity rather than ideological equivalents. The Foundation cooperates with two parties in the region – Party of Democratic Action (SDA) in the entity of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Party of Democratic Progress (PDP) in the Serbian equivalent.
Parliamentary elections in BiH will be held on October 5, 2014, and the conference aimed to promote campaigning and communication skills among the attendees, but also knowledge in how to organise campaigns and to analyse main factors in how to win an election and gain more voters and party members. The participants came from all around the entity and are fairly active political candidates for PDP in each region they were representing. The conference was chaired by Mr Håkan Filipsson, former press secretary for the Moderates in Stockholm and Ms Pia Prestmo, former head of information at the Norwegian Conservatives (Høyre). Guest lecturer was Mr Dragiša Delić, vice president of PDP, who held a key note speech on PDP’s upcoming campaign strategy.
