Montenegro elections: Long-standing leader Milo Djukanovic suffers defeat

by Cristian Florescu

Montenegro’s long-standing leader Milo Djukanovic has suffered a resounding presidential election defeat.

Jakov Milatovic, a 36-year-old centrist former economy minister, won the presidential run-off on Sunday evening.

He will replace Mr Djukanovic, who has been in power as president or prime minister in Montenegro for over three decades.

The snap parliamentary elections are scheduled to take place during the summer.

He promised to lead his small Balkan nation into the European Union within the next five years, and he is determined to make this happen. He is confident that his nation has what it takes to be a part of the EU, and he is committed to seeing this through.

The official results of the election are expected to be released later in the week, but two respected election monitoring organisations have already projected that Mr Milatovic will win.

The Centre for Monitoring and Research found that Mr Milatovic had won 60% of the vote.
