Opposition and Renewal Movement to stand together in 20 towns

BELGRADE, Monday -- Technical election coalitions of the Democratic Opposition of Serbia and the Serbian Renewal Movement had been formed in about twenty towns in Serbia, Renewal Movement spokesman Ivan Kovacevic said yesterday. This had been done without the knowledge of the Democratic Party or the Democratic Party of Serbia, he added. According to Kovacevic, these local coalitions will in some places have an opposition candidate and in others a Renewal Movement candidate.

Democratic Party vice president Zoran Zivkovic told Radio B2-92 that there had been no coalitions formed between the Democratic Opposition and the Renewal Movement in any of the cities. However, he said, it was possible that joint lists had been nominated by groups of citizens, which was the case in Kragujevac. "Unfortunately there is no coalition consisting of the Democratic Opposition and the Renewal Movement in any city," said Zivkovic.
