Milutinovic is incorrectly informing the OSCE
and refusing Mr Gonzalez s report.
In respect to the letter send by the minister of foreign affairs of the
FR of Yugoslavia , Mr. Milan Milutinovic, to the Danish Minister Mr.
Nils Peterson who is the chairman of the OSCE , the coalition "ZAJEDNO"
is informing the home and international public that the minister
Milutinovic is incorrectly informing the public about the following.
From this Milutinovic s response, it is clear that the president of the
Serbian republic, Slobodan Milosevic is not only refusing to accept the
report and the recommendations given by Mr. Felipe Gonzalez but is
dishonestly representing the electoral results in Serbia. Now it is more
then clear that Milosevic has chosen conflict (and isolation) from the
whole world in order to save his authority.
The Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs is an institution of FRY and
not of the SPS or JUL. It s their duty to give a clear opinion in
respect to the regularity of the elections and not to lies that the
"Coalitions, SPS, JUL and ND" have won the majority of votes on the
local elections in Serbia.
- Milutinovic claims that the coalition "ZAJEDNO has constituted
the assembly in Zrenjanin which is not true. The members of the
coalition "Zajedno" committee have during the last week held a general
assembly meting in which they elected their legal organs. But,
unfortunately, the SPS have made impossible the consuming of the duties
of the legally elected functionaries. Due to this the members of the
coalition "ZAJEDNO" committee , have already been protesting for days,
closed in the building of the assembly in Zrenjanin.
- Milutinovic is lying when he claims that neither party has won the
majority in the assemblies of Pirot, Pancevo and Jagodina as well as
that the SPS has won the majority in the cities of Kraljevo, Smederevska
Palanka, Vrsac, Soko Banja, Lapovo and Sabac. In all the mentioned
cities the coalition "ZAJEDNO" has won the majority on the local
elections held on the 17 th of November 1996. The SPS has been frauding
electoral victory. through the falsification of the electoral results in
the responsible committees which has later been permitted by the illegal
In respect to Nis in which the victory of the coalition "ZAJEDNO"
is absolutely clear Milutinovic says: "that the responsible organs will
thoroughly study the situation when they affirm all the facts about the
electoral results "In this town even though the courts have had affirmed
the victory of the coalition "ZAJEDNO", the city electoral committee ,
consisted only of the SPS members, is continuing to forge the electoral
records. Isn t the 47 days of thoroughly done studies enough?
- In Belgrade where the coalition "ZAJEDNO" won on the local elections
for the city assembly as well as for the 11 municipal assemblies
(Vracar, Stari Grad, Zvezdara, Savski Venac and Rakovica) and in
Vozdovac where coalition "ZAJEDNO" won SPS with the endless repeating
of the elections is intruding with the formation of authorities.
Concerning the Belgrade state assembly where the coalition "ZAJEDNO" won
the absolute majority Milutinovic didn t write a single word.
