The elections were won by Slobodan Milošević and his Socialist Party of Serbia (SPS), which won 101 of the 250 seats in the National Assembly. The SPS formed a government with Vojislav Šešelj's Serbian Radical Party. The presidential election was marked by a total domination of state-run media by Slobodan Miloševic with accusations of voter fraud and tampering. Milan Panić refused to accept the result, and stated that he believed he was the true winner of the election.
