Official result: Democratic Opposition wins Belgrade City Assembly
BELGRADE, Thursday -- The Democratic Opposition of Serbia has won 96 of the 110 seats in the Belgrade City Assembly and new elections will be held on October for another 11 seats because of irregularities, the president of the City Election Commission, Sead Spahovic, said today. Two seats went to the Socialist Party-Yugoslav left coalition and one to the Serbian Radical Party, said Spahovic, adding that because DOS had won an absolute majority, the coalition should take over city authorities within 20 days. Of the eleven seats subject to a new vote, the opposition is expected to win seven and the Left coalition two.
