Serbians began voting Sunday in a general election that is likely to return pro-European Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic to power, but also give a voice in parliament to the pro-Russian far-right.With the early election marking Serbia's third in four years, voters in the country of seven million people appeared unenthusiastic as they stood in line at polling stations, which opened at 7:00 a.m.Vucic, who hopes to lead Serbia into the European Union, said the election was needed for him to have a clear mandate to press ahead with the reforms required to join the 28-member bloc.Choosing the past would make Serbia "a European leper again," he told a local television station Thursday, in a reference to Serbia's isolated status during the 1990s rule of strongman Slobodan Milosevic.
