Message regarding the Elections

15. August 2002

by Slobodan Milosevic, The Hague, August 10th, 2002

Regarding the forthcoming elections in Serbia, I believe that the whole opposition bloc should appear united in the elections – with a common candidate.

The core of that bloc should be the three parties that constituted the Government of People`s Unity until the year 2000. During the war, those three parties defended the country, through the government and by all other means. During the bombing, the leaders of those parties remained in Serbia and put themselves at the disposal of the people and citizens.

Those parties and their representatives should bring together all other opposition parties, in fact all parties and individuals who are patriotically oriented and who have the same attitude towards the policies of the regime in Serbia.

In that sense, in these elections I consider the candidate Vojislav Seselj to be a common candidate of the patriotically oriented opposition parties and individuals. His candidacy should be supported.

To come out with more than one candidate at this moment, especially on behalf of the strongest opposition parties, would lead to the dilution of votes, which would only allow the puppet regime to manipulate the election results.

Today, the main interest of the people and state is to dismantle the puppet regime. That interest has to be more important than the particular interest of any party. And particularly it must be more important than anyone`s vanity (collective or individual – no matter).

Until victory.
