According to Yugoslavia's state-run news agency, the country's constitutional court today annulled parts of the election.
Opponents claim that President Slobodan Milosevic was defeated in that balloting.
Since then, they've been trying to force him to give up power- with mass protests in the streets.
For the third consecutive day thousands marched in the streets of Belgrade.
And coal miners also protested by going on strike. It's part of the effort to get Milosevic out.
It's not clear tonight if the court ruling means a recount of parts of the election or a complete new ballot.
