Serbian Socialist Party to make
strong challenge in elections
The Socialist Party of Serbia (SPS) will contest 250 seats in elections to be held on December 28, this year. The Party decided, in accordance with the electoral law that the SPS party ticket will have the name: Socialist Party of Serbia — Slobodan Milosevic. Mr Milosevic will be No 1 on the party ticket. He remains a politician with the highest personal rating in Serbia because of his courageous and successful struggle against the NATO kangaroo court in The Hague. The socialists will be fighting to win at least 20 percent of seats in the parliament. Slobodan Milosevic addressed a session of the Head Committee of the SPS by phone from his prison in The Hague. Mr Milosevic stressed that, "we, all together, have a duty to struggle for victory and win. It is in the interests of the whole people, of every family and each individual. "In these elections the Serbian people have a historic duty to choose the truth. Three years ago I warned citizens of Serbia what was going to happen if the exponents of foreign powers, that is, of their governments, come to power. Everything happened exactly as I said — nobody can deny it today. "The Socialist Party of Serbia has a duty and the ability to gather and mobilise forces that will reverse the processes which are the sad reality of Serbia — in the interests of peasants, in the interests of workers, intellectuals, in the interests of Kosovo martyrs, in the interests of everyone who lives off his own work — as well as in the interests of the Serbian people, their national dignity and the dignity of every citizen."
