Pro-Western Reformer Wins Runoff Election

June 28, 2004|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A pro-Western reformer won Serbia's presidential runoff election, defeating a hard-line nationalist ally of former autocrat Slobodan Milosevic.

Boris Tadic received 54% of the vote. Nationalist Tomislav Nikolic got 45%, the state electoral commission said.

"My hope is that Serbia will never again be led by a man who will spearhead the killing of our countrymen," Tadic said, referring to Milosevic.
