The vote, expected to be a close race between nationalists and pro-Western liberals, is seen as Serbia's most important election since the fall of war crime suspect late Slobodan Milosevic in 2000.

The government collapsed at the weekend, with nationalist Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica blaming deep disunity in his coalition over defending Kosovo versus pursuing a place in the European Union.
