Djindjic threatens general strike

BELGRADE, Wednesday -- The campaign manager for the Democratic Opposition, Zoran Djindjic, said today that the opposition would call on the people of Serbia for a general blockade of the country if the Federal Election Commission did not allow an opposition audit of the election results.

"This will not be a protest meeting," said Djindjic, "but a blockade of the entire country". He added that the opposition would call on people not to work, children not to go to schools and nobody to move until Slobodan Milosevic stepped down.

"The world will see a different Serbia this time," he said, "a Serbia which will begin to defend its dignity right now." He added that Milosevic must understand that there were no more calculations and bargains but that he had lost the elections and must go.
