  20  On Monday the presidential council of Zajedno gave its full
      backing to the Serbian Renewal Movement's nomination of Vuk
      Draskovic for the upcoming presidential elections.

      The council said the coalition's priority was to improve the
      quality of life at the level of the local community and stressed
  25  the pivotal role of the council in the democratisation of Serbia.
      The council agreed to set the conditions under which Zajedno
      members would participate in the both the Federal and republican
      parliaments at its next meeting.

      Milan Bozic, advisor to Vuk Draskovic, stressed ``Zajedno's wish

      added that ``at the current time further institutional expansion

  35  Leader of the Democratic Party Zoran Djindjic told reporters on
      Monday that although he had only discused extra-Zajedno support

      Zoran Djindjic added that Zajedno had initially been created as

      Zajedno were to become an obstacle to that union, then it should

      monopolise the democracy front in Serbia as Zajedno was only a
      part of a much wider democratic movement.

  45  Mr. Djindjic concluded that when he formed the Zajedno coalition
      he had not entered into a Catholic marriage. He said that all the
      parties in Zajedno were relatively autonomous and that the
      Democratic Party had the right to cooperate with other persons and


      UN Administrator for Eastern Slavonia Jacques Klein met with
      Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic on Monday in Belgrade to
      discuss the issues of dual citizenship, demilitarization and the
      repatriation of the refugees.

  55  After the meeting General Klein told reporters that discussions
      had focussed on the post-electoral situation in Eastern Slavonia.
      General Klein said that President Milosevic had given his full
      support to UN initiatives in the area, although the issues of
      demiliterization and dual citizenship had not yet been resolved.

  60  Mr. Klein said that the repatriation of refugees was a financial
      rather than a political question.
