This is great. Tadic (presidential candidate in second round against Radical candidate Tomislav Nikolic) and Kostunica (current Serb PM) have apparently been bitter political foes since they differed on sending war criminals to the International Court in the Hague or trying them in Serbia. I said earlier how Tadic was likely to win the second round if the votes of other democratic candidates came his way. All other parties had expressed the desire for their supporters to vote for Tadic in the second round, except Kostunica, who hadn't endorsed either candidate until now.
In this article, Nikolic challenges Tadic to debate, Nikolic tried to woo Kostunica's endorsement and votes by saying, "Kostunica is an honest man and I’m proposing that we honest people get together on one side and let the criminals be on the other."
But no, Kostunica party supports Tadic. Seems Kostunica decided not to side with the criminals after all.
