Tito's grandson creates new party

The grandson of the late Communist dictator Josip Broz Tito has set up a new political party, pledging "to restore the dignity of the people" nearly 20 years after former Yugoslavia disintegrated in civil war. Joska Broz yesterday filed the signatures needed for the formal registration of his Communist Party.

Mr Broz said the party united a number of splintered Communist groups. His party is unlikely to gain much support, although many view Tito's era, which lasted from the Second World War until 1980, with nostalgia.
