Who was Hamdija Pozderac?

Hamdija Pozderac was a Bosniak communist politician and the president of Bosnia and Herzegovina from 1971 to 1974. He was a vice president of the former Yugoslavia in late 1980s, and was in line to become the president of Yugoslavia just before he was forced to resign from politics in 1987.

Pozderac was considered one of the most influential and powerful politicians in Bosnia and Herzegovina during the communist era. His removal from the political scene in late 1980s is today considered one of the most controversial events that preceded the Bosnian War. He was removed due to the Agrokomerc Affair of 1987, which the Yugoslav press compared to the American Watergate scandal.
