Parliamentary elections to be held on 30 August will be the eleventh since the introduction of the multiparty system in Montenegro, and the fifth since independence was restored in 2006.
According to the polls, the Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS) will obtain 35% and opposition pro-Serbian bloc “For the future of Montenegro” can count on 25%. Đukanović will eventually remain in power as a leader with the longest mandate in Europe as he became one of the Montenegro leaders in 1987.
The upcoming parliamentary elections could be decisive for the further geopolitical and European future of Montenegro, said Vladimir Biličik, the head of the European Parliament delegation for Montenegro. Biličik is also hoping that these elections will not be interfered with by outside forces. (Željko Trkanjec | EURACTIV.hr)
