Yugoslavia anxiously awaits new president
BELGRADE, Yugoslavia (AP) - Tens of thou-
sands of jubilant opposition supporters celebrated
yesterday their apparent electoral victory over Presi-
dent Slobodan Milosevic, who was seeking to force
a runoff despite calls to accept the end of his 13
years in power.
Chanting "Kill Yourself Slobodan and Save
Serbia," more than 40,000 people jammed a
downtown Belgrade square to celebrate the pur-
ported victory of the pro-Western opposition
challenger, Vojislav Kostunica. Thousands also
gathered in the Serbia's two other major cities of
Novi Sad and Nis.
But the lack of any official results more than 24
hours after polls closed Sunday raised fears that
Milosevic would rig the results to force a second
round of voting.
The United States and more than a dozen other
countries said they would not accept fraudulent
claims of victory. The United States also pledged
yesterday to lift sanctions against Yugoslavia once
Milosevic accepts defeat.
Kostunica, a 56-year-old law professor, demanded
the State Election Commission release official
results within the next two days and warned if Milo-
sevic tried to tamper with the vote, "we will defend
our victory by peaceful means and we will protest
for as long as it takes." His party said. its own unoffi-
cial count gave him around 55 percent of the vote.
In the absence of official results, Milosevic's left-
wing coalition insisted yesterday that the president
was ahead in the vote count but not far enough to
guarantee that he would avoid a runoff with Kostuni-
ca on Oct. 8.
At a press conference to bolster morale among
the president's shocked and demoralized followers,
Gorica Gajevic, Milosevic's party general secretary,
said that with 37 percent of the ballots counted,
Milosevic was ahead by 45 percent to Kostunica's 40
"This result gives us optimism that we can win in
the first round," Gajevic said.

Senate approves Everglade legislation
WASHINGTON - - The Senate gave overwhelming approval yesterday to wha
lawmakers called the largest environmental restoration project in history - a S7
billion effort expected to take three decades to rescue the Florida Everglades.
The legislation, which must still be taken up by the House, calls for a massiv
federal construction project to restore the historic water flows through the 300
mile long Everglades ecosystem.
Despite bipartisan support in Congress and the White House's backing, t i
measure could still encounter problems in the House with adjournment fas

If passed, the Everglades rescue is likely to be the only maior environmenta
