Clouds of smoke rise from just one of two furnaces at Serbia's only steel plant, which accounts for almost one fifth of the exports of the country and is essential to the nation's struggling economically. For the 63,000 inhabitants of the town some 40 kilometers (25 miles) to the west of Belgrade, haunted by the possibility of the plant closing, it is vital to vote in the upcoming May 6 general elections for a government that will keep the Zelezara Smederevo plant going.
