Bosnia´s lawmakers have approved a central government after more than a year of arguments, boosting hopes that its bid for EU membership could get back on track. Zoran Tegeltija, a 58-year-old Bosnian Serb economist, has been chosen as the prime minister. Tegeltija´s nomination as prime minister was made last month by the country´s three presidents — an Orthodox Serb, a Catholic Croat and a Muslim Bosniak — who had spent a year arguing over relations with the NATO military alliance. Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country on the Balkan Peninsula in southeastern Europe, located within the Balkan Peninsula. Sarajevo is the capital and largest city.
