PODGORICA – Incidents planned on election day

Montenegrin police have received data that individuals and groups plan to cause incidents and unrest on the day of parliamentary elections set for Sunday (30 August), said Veselin Veljović, the director of Montenegrin police.

“Our findings indicate that these people advocate through social networks and other channels that during the voting and after the closing of polling stations, citizens exit to the streets, cause riots and disturb public order,” Veljovic said in a statement, adding that police in all Montenegrin cities will react decisively.

Montenegrin President and DPS party leader, Milo Đukanović, claimed that the opposition, which he called the “anti-Montenegrin coalition” was formed in Belgrade and that they were offering “Montenegro to give up on itself and its European future and stand under the umbrella of Belgrade and Moscow.”

At the last elections four years ago, members of Serbian and Russian deep intelligence attempted a coup, which turned out to be unsuccessful. (Željko Trkanjec | EURACTIV.hr)
