MILOSEVIC'S LETTER TO SERBIAN PRIME MINISTER
Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic sent the following letter on Tuesday to the Serbian Prime Minister Mirko Marjanovic:
"Mr. Prime Minister,
I consider that disputes over the elections, related to the local elections, particularly in Belgrade, has caused great internal and external damage to our country and it is high time to put an end to that problem through the highest institutions of our Republic: the Government and Parliament.
I therefore suggest that you, in accordance with your constitutional authority, together with the Government of the Republic of Serbia, submit to the Parliament a proposal for the special law (lex specialis), which will enable the results of part of the local elections, in accordance with the OSCE report, be recognised as final.
I want to emphasize that the interests of the state, which are the further improvement of relations between our country and the international community as a whole, far exceed the significance of any number of assembly seats in several cities.
With deep conviction that this proposal is aimed at a solution by which legal and executive authorities will solve the current crisis pragmatically and with respect to the legal systems of our country,
I send You my best regards, Slobodan Milosevic"
