Vote Tallies Mount in Yugoslavia, Romania

November 05, 1996|From Times Wire Reports

With more than half the votes counted from elections in Yugoslavia, the leftist alliance uniting Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic's ruling Socialists with the neo-Communists led by his wife, Mirjana Markovic, had 48% of the total, or twice the percentage polled by the four-party opposition coalition. However, the opposition did dent Milosevic's hold on local posts. Meanwhile, with more than half the votes tallied from Romanian elections, incumbent President Ion Iliescu appeared headed to a Nov. 17 runoff with university professor Emil Constantinescu. But in parliamentary elections, the results indicated that Constantinescu's Democratic Convention--in league with other parties--might be able to form a new government.
