How exactly can this have happened?
Jailed former President Slobodan Milosevic and another U.N. war crimes suspect won seats in Serbia's parliament as an extreme nationalist party swept weekend elections, according to results released Monday.Did I miss something here? Is the man not currently in prison before the Hague awaiting trial on War Crimes charges?
Milosevic...can't attend parliamentary sessions, but [his party] can still decide to award [him a seat] when the new parliament convenes in January.Ah, so now we're back to 'awarding' seats of government, hmm?
"It would be symbolic for Milosevic to get a seat in the parliament," said his party deputy, Ivica Dacic. "We'll talk to Milosevic about it, and we'll see if he wants it."
