The DOS was the coalition led by Vojislav Kostunica, which got rid of Slobodan Milosevic in October 2000 and led the country since then. Dragoljub Micunovic, the DOS candidate, could not win the 2003 presidential election and was even beaten by 11% by Tomislav Nikolic, the candidate of the extreme rightist Serbian Radical Part. Since only 38% of the electors voted, the presidential election was cancelled for the third time. Therefore, the DOS was disbanded on 18 November 2003. It seems that the disbanding was mostly decided by the Democratic Party, the party founded by the former Prime Minister Zoran Jinjic, murdered on 12 March 2003.
