BELGRADE - Demonstrations in Serbia will be organised all until it is seen how a special law on recognition of the local election results is enforced and whether it will be manipulated with in any kind, stated the head of the Citizens' Alliance of Serbia, Vesna Pesic. She stressed that 'in the event that the Socialist Party of Serbia fully recognises the November 17 election results, the Zajedno [Together] coalition would have yet to fight for democratic changes such as freedom of expressing and unblock of media are".

BELGRADE - The Association for help to refugees and exiles in FR Yugoslavia condemned a statement given by the president of the Serbia Assembly, Dragan Tomic, for the Hungarian Radio, saying that refugees are 'a militant core of the protests in Serbia".
