The author reports on Bosnia's politics and government. It states that on July 2, 2007, Ambassador Miroslav Lajcak of Slovakia will take on the role of international high representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The author says Lajcak should not rely on the cues from the political powers-that-be, but also develop a domestic constituency as a popular representative. Lajcak will have to change this prevailing dynamic to succeed, unifying the European Union family of institutions.
