Bosnian Serb opposition cuts communication with ruling party

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) " Bosnian Serb opposition parties say they will no longer communicate with the ruling party of President Milorad Dodik, because he allegedly ordered his government to ignore municipalities that his party did not win in the Oct. 2 local election.

After a meeting Monday, the Alliance for Changes coalition called Dodik a "dictator" who is violating the constitution and said that he is using "fascist methods" to punish the opposition.

Most voters in the Bosnian Serb mini-state of Republika Srpska voted for Dodik's party, which has been ruling there for over a decade. But opposition says Dodik threatened the handful of municipalities where voters elected opposition leaders with no support from his government.
