Reformer wins Serbian poll

Belgrade: A pro-Western reformer won Serbia's presidential run-off vote, defeating a hard-line nationalist ally of the former President, Slobodan Milosevic, an independent election monitoring group said. Sunday's election results appeared to signal a desire by Serbs to move closer to the European Union and NATO — and away from the nationalist isolation of Mr. Milosevic's autocratic regime. Reformer Boris Tadic received 53.7 per cent of the vote, while nationalist Tomislav Nikolic got 45 per cent, said Belgrade's CeSID group, an election monitoring organisation. The turnout was 48.5 per cent. Although official results were not released immediately, Mr. Nikolic conceded defeat based on his Serbian Radical Party's own tally.
