For the third time in a row, Serbia's presidential election is declared invalid as fewer than 50 percent of voters turn out. The Balkan republic has been without an elected head of state since late last year, when the previous president surrendered to the war crimes tribunal in the Hague. NPR's Linda Wertheimer speaks with journalist Misha Glenny about the state of democracy in Serbia.
