An early parliamentary election in Serbia
Serbian President Boris Tadic dissolved the National Assembly yesterday and called an early parliamentary election for next May 11, following the collapse of Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica's center-right coalition government, which fell apart over the issue of suspending ties with the European Union.

A number of EU countries (along with the United States) have extended recognition to the predominantly Albanian province of Kosovo, which last February 17 declared itself independent of Serbia. However, the latter regards Kosovo's unilateral declaration of independence as "null and void."

The upcoming parliamentary election will be Serbia's third nationwide vote in just over one year: the preceding National Assembly election was held on January 21, 2007, while a presidential election took place in two rounds of voting last January 20 and February 3.

2007 Parliamentary Elections in Serbia has an overview of the Balkan country's electoral system, while Weimar Serbia? Ultranationalists top parliamentary poll once more, on Global Economy Matters, has further information about the 2007 National Assembly election, including definitive election results. Meanwhile, Déjà vu: ultranationalist Nikolić wins plurality in Serbian presidential election...but loses runoff vote (also on Global Economy Matters) covers the recently held presidential election, with definitive first round and runoff election results.

Update

A turn to the West in Serbia? Pro-EU parties handily defeat ultra-nationalists, on Global Economy Matters, covers the outcome of the May 11, 2008 parliamentary election in Serbia.
