The authorities and the opposition won the same number of votes in the elections in Montenegro

The ruling center-left Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS) of Montenegro gains 34.4% in the parliamentary elections held in the country on Sunday, August 30. This was announced by the representative of the Center for Monitoring Elections (CeMI).

Such data follow after processing 52% of ballots. At the same time, the opposition coalition “For the future of Montenegro” gets 33.4% of votes and the opposition coalition “Peace is our nation” gets 12.5%. Thus, in case of unification opposition parties may gain about 46%.

Montenegrins elect new parliament on August 30. The main struggle will take place between the ruling Democratic Party of socialists and two opposition blocks, which, according to political scientists, now have chances to perform worthily at the elections for the first time.

Victory of the DPS will give President Milo Djukanovic, who is considered by some experts to be a real “last dictator” of Europe, a good basis to continue his almost 30-year term in leading state positions.
