HEIR TO SERBIAN THRONE CALLS FOR 'VOTES FOR CHANGE.
Crown Prince Aleksandar Karadjordjevic said in a statement from his London office on 29 August that it is the patriotic duty of all Serbs to vote for the united opposition's Yugoslav presidential candidate--by which he meant Kostunica--in the 24 September Yugoslav and Serbian elections. Aleksandar noted that the royal family does not take an active role in politics, but he stressed that the united opposition offers the best hope for needed change. He regretted that the Montenegrin authorities plan to boycott the elections. The elections will affect the future of Montenegro as well as that of Serbia and Kosovo, Aleksandar said. PM
