July 19, 1999

A leading Serbian opposition politician says the best way to get President Slobodan Milosevic of Yugoslavia out of power is to seduce him to resign, promising him immunity from arrest or extradition. Opposition figure Vuk Draskovic said he would soon name a shadow Yugoslav government of experts led by a prime minister selected by Milo Djukanovic, the democratic leader of Montenegro, the small republic that with Serbia makes Yugoslavia. Mr. Draskovic then plans to press Mr. Milosevic through public rallies to accept that government and call new elections in three to six months, while the opposition works to attract disaffected Milosevic supporters.
