Democratic Opposition of Serbia
A political coalition formed in opposition of Slobodan Milosevic. Presidential candidate Vojislav Kostunica rallied 48% of the vote over the September 22-24 election weekend, while current president Slobodan Milosevic carried only 40%. Rather than declaring Kostunica the winner, Yugoslavia’s Milosevic influenced State Election Commission announced a run-off to be held on October 8, 2000.
The United States and the major European powers have issued statements urging Milosevic to accept the DOS victory and step down after nearly 13 years in power.
