Dinkić was referring to the day the Milošević regime fell, when he on Friday asked that allegations about election fraud be investigated.

He was addressing a news conference when reporters asked for his comment on the accusations leveled at the Democratic Party (DS) by the Serb Progressives (SNS).

Those accusations were serious, said Dinkić, and the state must examine the election process, while "somebody must be held responsible if election theft occurred".

"This has been one of the most suspicious electoral processes since October 5," said he.

According to him, the URS was not satisfied with the "process", and singled out Subotica and Novi Sad, but also noted that they "have no right to complain because their representatives signed the reports".

"It is what it is. I have no intention of discussing it five days after the event," Dinkić was quoted as saying, but also adding that "in a democratic society, there must not be any doubt about the regularity of elections".
