The difference between (1) and (2) is the position of still. Are (1) and (2) no problem, the same message? (1)The magic number of seats needed in parliament to secure a majority is 126. This means that, mathematically, the Radicals together with the Socialists and Mr Kostunica could still form a government with a tiny majority.

Still is a connector between sentences and its aim is to emphazise the effect of something (cause-effect). Generally, we should place connectors at the begining of a sentence followed by a comma. The second one is better written.
