Election commissions' decisions close to actual election results


     belgrade, jan. 15 (tanjug)- opposition democratic party of serbia
     (dss) leader  vojislav kostunica said  wednesday that the  latest
     decisions of the belgrade and  nis city election commissions were
     close  to the  actual results  of the  latest local  elections in

     kostunica  told a  news conference  that the  'recognition of the
     actual results of the second round of local elections on nov. 17'
     should be  followed by 'a binding  accord between the authorities
     and the opposition.'

     he  said the  accord should  imply political  relations based  on
     respect  for legal  norms and  their application  in the  work of
     law-making bodies,  the activities of political  parties, and the
     work of the media.

     the  dss  leader  told  the  press  that programmatic differences
     between his party and the opposition coalition zajedno had become
     greater since the latest local elections in serbia.

     kostunica  said his  party had  only technically  joined for  the
     elections  the  zajedno  coalition,  which  comprises the serbian
     renewal movement (spo), democratic party (ds), and civic alliance
     of serbia (gss).

     the dss leader observed that zajedno was on the way of becoming a
     single political party.

     he noted that his own party  was trying to preserve its 'national
     and  democratic' political  orientation and  would participate in
     the next  elections independently as  a party whose  place on the
     political stage was between zajedno and the serbian radical party

     'this does not of course mean that  the party (dss) is in any way
     abandoning   or   forsaking   obligations   stemming   from   its
     participation in the  federal and local elections as  part of the
     zajedno coalition,' kostunica said.
