A reformist, pro-Western politician who wants closer ties with Europe wins Serbia's runoff presidential election. Boris Tadic received nearly 54 percent of the votes cast in Sunday's election, versus the 45 percent garnered by his nationalist opponent, Tomislav Nikolic, an ally of former Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic. NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports.
