Yugoslavia Election

In a report from Podgorica, NPR's Sylvia Poggioli says Serbian State TV tonight broadcast word that opposition candidate Vojislav Kostunica finished first in Sunday's presidential election. But, the Yugoslav State Election Commission said Kostunica did not win an outright majority and will have to face President Slobodan Milosevic in a run-off. The opposition insists Kostunica won well over 50-percent of the vote and denounced the government's call for a run-off.
