The leader was on a hunger strike to try to force early elections.
Nikolic stopped taking water and food April 16 when about 50,000 of his supporters rallied in Belgrade demanding an early parliamentary vote. He started drinking water Thursday while hospitalized.

President Boris Tadic has rejected Nikolic`s demand for early elections, saying Serbia first has to get European Union candidate status before he calls the vote.
