Socialists join pro-EU alliance

June 24, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Serbia is to get a Western-leaning government after the Socialists opted to join a pro-European Union alliance headed by President Boris Tadic's Democratic Party.

Their decision ended six weeks of tense negotiations after an election that would have given nationalist anti-EU parties the opportunity to form a government had they clinched Socialist support.

The news will come as a relief to Western capitals keen to see Serbia take its place firmly in the European mainstream after the wars in the Balkans in the 1990s.
