Opposition poised in Serbia

Opposition poised in Serbia
Text size Aa Aa

Serbians are voting in presidential, parliamentary and local elections with all eyes on the right-wing opposition led by one-time ultranationalist, Tomislav Nikolic.

While he is unlikely to clinch the presidency, his Serbian Progressive Party could find itself in a coalition with Boris Tadic’s Liberals in parliament.

Voters seem united in their anger over the slowness of the country’s move from socialism to capitalism.

But there is also unprecedented consensus on another issue – that European Union membership is the key to the country’s future.
