Yugoslavia came apart also, beginning with a brutal clash between Serbia and Croatia, here again 'nations' with only the smallest differences in genealogy; with, indeed, practically a common language. Ethnic conflict does not require great differences.

Overview: Serbia

 In May 2012, in a surprise result, the nationalist candidate Tomislav Nikolic was elected president of Serbia. The liberal incumbent Boris Tadic conceded defeat soon after the polls closed. Mr Nikolic had won has 50.21 per cent of the vote, against 46.77 per cent for Mr Tadic, with 40 per cent of votes counted. The Democratic Party had dominated Serbian politics since it led an opposition alliance to overthrow Slobodan Milosevic in October 2000. The electoral contest had been seen by many as a referendum on Serbia’s putative EU membership; reassuringly for many, the newly-elected president promised that Serbia would not stray from its European path’. Despite these reassurances, the electoral loser, Boris Tadic saw fit to appeal to his rival to maintain ‘Serbia's strategic orientation towards the EU,’ adding that ‘It would be a tragic mistake if Serbia changes its orientation. It is a matter of peace and economic development.’ In turn confirming his commitment to Europe, Mr Nikolic claimed that ‘This is a turning point for Serbia... these elections were not about who will take Serbia to the EU, but who will solve the economic problems created by the Democratic Party.’
