In October 2018 general elections were held to elect the state presidency, the state legislature, the entity legislatures and the president of the Bosnian Serb entity, Republika Srpska (RS). Nationalist parties outperformed moderate parties at all levels.

A new government was formed in December 2019, mostly by representatives of the nationalist parties. A lack of consensus among them over the adoption of reforms and the weakness of the entity governments will continue to impede policy implementation.

The three main nationalist parties, representing the three constituent peoples, disagree on central policy issues, such as NATO membership, making it unlikely that Bosnia and Hercegovina (BiH) will join the Western military alliance in 2020-24 (the forecast period).
