Summary/Abstract: Author analyses the results of parlamentarian elections held in December 2003 and the circumstances that led to forming Kostunica's Government. He argues that the outcome of these elections were supstantially determined by series of unsuccesful presidential elections, including Novembar elections that brought victory to SRS candidate Tomislav Nikolic against DOS candidate Dragoljub Micunovic. Mentioned parlamentarian elections were the first really free, democratic and fair elections in Serbia and author contents that aspect – along with overthrowing of DOS Cabinet – is too often neglected. Finally, he concludes that Vojislav Kostunica, in spite of relatively poor results, and widespread disbelief in his capabilities as a lider, has very succesfully resolved political crisis in Serbia and thus provided a good ground for regeration of his political persona and his party.
