America's Debate > Archive > Assorted Issues Archive > [A] International Debate
In an act of sheer insanity, the people of Serbia have elected Slobodan Milosevic and another war criminal to a seat in the Serbian Parliament.

Full Story:
Slobodan Milosevic Elected to Serbian Parliament

What on earth would possess these people to elect two war criminals to lead their country? While it may be symbolic (it is hardly expected that either will actually take their seat), it still seems utterly mad that these people elected two war criminals!

All this and more awaits your reply...

What motivations would the Serbian people have for electing someone who has committed massive atrocities to lead them in parliament?
When you read the article you see his party only got 7.6% of the vote. There must be a procedure where minority parties get representation. It appears he automotically qualified for a seat because of his ranking within the party and did not beat anyone head to head. Parliamentary representation for parties who do not command a large percentage of the popular vote has its pluses and minuses.
