Protests against the formation of the minority government continued on Saturday and Sunday in Podgorica and several other cities. Members of the Democratic party participated in the protests, and the party leader and parliament Speaker, Aleksa Bečić, as well as most of the ministers from the government, said they fully supported them.

At the protest in Nikšić, the municipality’s vice president, Mitar Goranović, from the Democrats, said they were defending the freedom won on 30 August when the elections were held.

“One man whose political power is three MPs dared to shape the electoral will of the people. We came to tell him it wouldn’t work. We have gathered to tell the traitor that he is a traitor. Dritan Abazović is a traitor”, said Goranović.
