Serbian Progressive Party candidate for the 2012 presidential election Tomislav Nikolic (front) reacts in his party's headquarters in Belgrade May 6, 2012. Serbia's incumbent liberals and right-wing opposition were tied for control of the Balkan country on Sunday after knife-edge elections in which the party of late Serb strongman Slobodan Milosevic emerged as kingmaker. The opposition Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) claimed victory and said it would open coalition talks without delay. But the results suggested the liberal Democratic Party, in power since Milosevic's ouster in 2000, was better placed to find allies for a new government.
