Hope on the Balkans
Zoran Djindjic, leader of Democratic Party, claims:
Victory of opposition
Belgrade - "On the basis of so far processed data from 60 percent of polling stations in Serbia, DOS presidential candidate Vojislav Kostunica won in the first round of elections", Zoran Djindjic, leader of Democratic party said yesterday. He expressed dissatisfaction at the work of Federal election commission. He believes that the commission interrupted its work so as to get order from the regime how to act further.
"We are also concerned about the fact that Socialist Party of Serbia and Yugoslav Left Party are not announcing results that are real. We suppose that the regime is preparing manouvering space for election manipulation and that it will call second round of elections", Djindjic said. He also believes that Milosevic's defeat in the second round would be even more desastrous than it is now. He also expressed respect for behavior of the Yugoslav Army and the Police during elections.
Cedomir Jovanovic, chief of DOS election office said that on the basis of processed data from 60 percent of polling stations, Kostunica got 55.3l percent of votes, while Milosevic got 34.19.
