BELGRADE, October 16. /TASS/. Parliamentary election will be held in Montenegro on Sunday. This will be the tenth parliamentary election since the introduction of the multi-system in the country, and fourth - since Montenegro’s independence. Last parliamentary election was held on 14 October 2012.
Political analysts say that the main issue is whether Milo Dukanovic, leader of the Democratic Party of Socialists, will be able to retain power and continue his pro-Western policies. Dukanovic served as prime minister since 1991 and as president in 1998-2002. The likeliest contender is the Democratic Front which promotes rapprochement with Russia and refusal to join NATO.
Analysts say that neither of the three coalitions or 14 parties will be able to win absolute majority and predict that the new government will be coalitional. However, they note that the opposition now has a real chance to interrupt the long rule of Dukanovic and his Democratic Party of Socialists. The main emphasis of the opposition in foreign policy is holding a referendum on joining NATO, turning back to traditional friends - Russia and Serbia, which envisages, among other things, lifting sanctions from Russia and cancelling Montenegro’s recognition of Kosovo’s independence.
The unicameral parliament of Montenegro has 81 seats, and MPs are elected for four-year terms by direct secret ballot.
