[L-I] Serbia has to be free! - Slobodan Milosevic phone address to SPS on the elections

Belgrade, 3 December 2003
President Slobodan Milosevic has addressed today by phone the session of the Head Committee, the highest organ of his party, the Socialist Party of Serbia. According to the Party Statute, the Head Committee has adopted today the party ticket for the forthcoming early parliamentary elections, scheduled for 28 December 2003, with the names of candidates for 250 seats in the Serbian parliament.
It has been also decided that according to the electoral law provisions, the SPS party ticket will have the name: SOCIALIST PARTY OF SERBIA – SLOBODAN MILOSEVIC.
Candidate with number one on the party ticket will be President Milosevic himself. The composition of the list of candidates, containing the most prominent names of both “reformists” and “consequent socialists” is considered to be a manifestation of unity of Serbian socialists, reached in the crucial moment and achieved in accordance with the expectation of the people, around the principal goal – to offer a socialist and patriotic alternative to the colonial regime that brought the country and the people into misery, humiliation and desperation. At the same time, the way the socialists appear in the elections proves that Slobodan Milosevic is still, and even more than in the last years – a politician with the highest personal rating in Serbia. It is, without any doubt, a result of his successful struggle against the NATO puppet court at The Hague, which became a paradigm of the colonial domination over Serbia.
The socialists with Slobodan Milosevic will fight for at least 20% of seats in the Serbian parliament, which, if achieved, will make them unavoidable factor in the future political life of Serbia.
Below we give the full text of President Milosevic’s today’s address to the Head Committee of the Socialist Party of Serbia.
I wish to greet you and to tell you that we all together have a duty to struggle for victory and to win. It is the interest of the whole people, of every family and each individual. And looking from the prospective of individuals, of families and of the people – everyone wishes to live in prosperous and developed, safe and happy country. In order to be all that, Serbia has to be free. That is why freedom is a goal that has to be above all other goals. That goal is reachable although it is hard to reach it. It is reachable since truth is the most powerful weapon. It is hard since great efforts, lot of work and firm unity are needed for that truth to access brain and heart of every citizen.
In these elections Serbian people has historical duty to choose the truth. Three years ago I warned citizens of Serbia what was going to happen if the exponents of foreign powers, i.e. of their governments, come to power. Everything happened exactly as I said – nobody can deny it today.
The Socialist Party of Serbia has duty and ability to gather and mobilize forces that will reverse the processes which are the sad reality of Serbia – in the interest of peasants, in the interest of workers, intellectuals, in the interest of Kosovo martyrs, in the interest of everyone who lives of his own work – as well as in the interest of Serbian people, national dignity and dignity of every citizen.
I have proposed Milutin Mrkonjic for Prime Minister because he is a builder who proved himself in the hardest time. Serbia needs a million of new employments, it needs apartments, hospitals, schools, roads, railways, bridges, it needs accelerated improvement of living standards, both social and individual, for all – from babies in nurseries until pensioners.
Serbia is in Europe; it has no reason to stand submissively in anybody’s waiting room. There is no happy beggar or wealthy colony. Fast integration into contemporary World can be achieved only through our own successful development – not by mercy or decree of the outside factors.
That is why Serbia should vote for truth, should vote for Serbia.
In that name I wish to send you at least one more time a message that we all together have a duty to struggle for victory.
