Democrats Win in Belgrade, Hardliners Win in Novi Sad

Another former Yugoslav republic to have elections today was Serbia. Two weeks after first round voters had to elect mayors of many towns where neither candidate won more than 50%. Results are slowly trickling in and it is hard to make some coherent picture of where Serbia stands politically. But the most important result is known. Aleksandar Vučić (Aleksandar Vucic), candidate of hardline nationalist party SRS for Belgrade mayor, has conceded defeat (by 1 % margin) at the hands of Nenad Bogdanović (Nenad Bogdanovic), candidate of DS, pro-Western party of slain prime minister Zoran Djindjić (Zoran Djindjic).

Another important result is victory of their Maja Gojković (Maja Gojkovic); SRS candidate for the mayor of Novi Sad, capital of autonomous province of Vojvodina. Margin of victory is some 300 votes.

Here in Croatia we had local elections in city of Metković (Metkovic). I blogged about those elections before. The results aren't in yet, but I'll hope to post them as soon as they become available.
