The Party of Democratic Activity (Bosnian: Stranka demokratske aktivnosti, A-SDA) is a conservative[1] political party in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

History[edit]

The party was established in February 2008 as a breakaway from the Party of Democratic Action.[2] Based in Cazin, its founders included town mayor Nermin Ogrešević. In the 2010 general elections, A-SDA ran only in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina part of Bosnia. It received 1.7% of the vote, failing to win a seat in the national House of Representatives,[3] However, it won one seat in the House of Representatives of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina with 1.9% of the vote.[4]

In the 2014 elections the party increased its vote share to 2.25%, winning a seat in the national House of Representatives.[5] It also won two seats in the Federation House.[6] Its member of the country's legislature is Jasmin Emrić, who holds a seat in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina's first division.
