Serbian president's party wins general election
Text size Aa Aa

The party of Boris Tadic has won Serbia’s general election, but the president’s election rivals have accused him of “violating the country’s constitution” by claiming he will now take up the reins of power.

The ultranationalists, who came in second, insist they are equally capable of forming a ruling coalition, as Tadic’s party does not have a majority. But that didn’t stop Democratic Party supporters celebrating their win after three months of political paralysis in Serbia prompted by Kosovo’s unilateral declaration of independence.
