Montenegro: Djukanovic casts vote in hope of third decade in power

Former president and six-time prime minister of Montenegro Milo Djukanovic cast his vote in the presidential elections, for which he is running, in the capital of Podgorica on Sunday.

If he is successful, it would mark his third decade in power since first assuming office as PM in 1991.

Several media outlets were present to capture the moment of the vote. Afterwards Djukanovic addressed the press and reaffirmed his conviction that Montenegro is moving towards the path of ‘European development.’

Djukanovic appeared confident regarding the results of the presidential vote, adding that the competition was scarce.

Over 530,000 voters are expected to cast their vote and Djukanovic is speculated to win a second term as president with opposition candidate Mladen Bojani his main challenger.

This is the seventh presidential election since a multiparty system was implemented in 1991. Since then, the current ruling party the Democratic Party of Socialists has been in power.

If no candidate receives a majority of votes, the second round will be held in two weeks. Over 1,300 foreign observers will be monitoring the elections.
