President Boris Tadic Wins Election-Manufactured Consent?

Vojvodin Hungarian and Croats in Northern Serbia and Albanians and Muslims in the Raskic Region of Serbia rallied to defeat Tomislav Nikolic by a slim margin on Sunday. Incumbent President Tadic won the election, and his election is seen as a victory for those forces wishing to join the European Union. However the presence of foreign Non Governmental Organizations and a plurality of political parties supported by Western Interests-both state and individual- throws a shadow of doubt on the legitamacy of Tadic's victory. One wonders if the apparant consent of the people was not in fact manufactured.
British Ambassador Breaks Serbia's Rule of Election Silence
Many Western governments were not only watching this election but were trying to influence voters as exemplified by the British Ambassador Stephen Wordsworth to Serbia who went so far as to make an public appeal to Albanians and Muslims to vote on Sunday to defeat Nikolic. According to Svetlana Novko, an Canadian Serbian Orthodox iconographer who writes the blog Byzantine Blog, Glas Javnosti, a Serbian newspaper, reports that the British has also financed CESID as a parallel structure to Serbia's Republic's Electoral Commission to count the votes at the election runoffs. Novko states that CESID results were published in all the media (backed by Western Media concerns) without waiting for the states legal body to count and announce the results of the votes.

There are many parallel political parties being fronted by Westerners, including the United States to undermine the authentic democratic process in Serbia. One such group headed by former Secretary of State Madeline Albright is called the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs and it is based here in the United States. Former President Carter is associated with this group.

Under this group are three organizations, the Centrist Democratic Institute (co-presidents are Pier Ferdinando Cassini of Italy and Former President of Mexico Vincente Fox), the Liberalist International and the Socialist Internationale. The Serbian party Christian Democratic Party Internationale is an observer member of the Centrist Democratic Institute and openly advocates the succession of Kosovo from Serbia. There are over one hundred members countries of the CDI, including the United States and Albania.

Other parties, NGOs, media outlets and other non-profits are fronted by such people as George Soros, who is in particular known amongst Serbians who want to preserve their cultural hegemony as an individual who is anti-Serbian.

This group CESID has therefore has made an uncivil, and pre-emptive attempt to list its numbers as official over those numbers of the governing institutions of Serbia. The presence of these groups in Serbia, and their ability to influence elections by disseminating mis-information in order to influence the Serbian peoples against their best interest is very questionable, and needs to be investigated and challenged by those members of the International Community that want sincerely to uphold the rights of sovereign states, and the right to the integrity of borders. It also calls into question the legitamacy of the election results--and this needs to be challenged and investigated. The results of such illegitamacy can have quite a destabilizing effect as we have seen with the recent events in Kenya.

Although Tadic's victory is seen as a victory for those wanting Serbia to join the E.U., the presence of the organizations in this country, their sources of income, manpower, and other material support, and the way they operate in nation-states against a viable, authentic democratic process needs to be examined and needs to be challenged so that the true voice of the people can be heard. Until this investigation is carried out, Tadic's election will forever be seen, by this writer at least, as under a cloud of suspician.

CESID is the acronym for the Centar za Slobodne Izbore i Demokratiju (Center for Free Elections and Democracy; Belgrade, Yugoslavia)
