TIRANA, November 8 – The self-proclaimed patriotic organisation Luca and opposition parties gathered in front of the Parliament of Montenegro in Podgorica on Tuesday.
The protesters demand the withdrawal of changes to the Law on the President and the holding of extraordinary parliamentary elections. The anti- government protest is being backed by the DPS, the Social Democratic Party, Liberal Party and Social Democrats.
They oppose what they say the grave unconstitutional actions of the parliamentary majority.
The amendments to the Law were adopted at the proposal of the pro-Serbian Democratic Front in order to unblock the election of the new government.
The President of Montenegro, Milo Djukanovic sent the law back to the Parliament for reconsideration on Monday.
Montenegrin parliament speaker Danijela Djurovic called on party leaders to talk to each other to overcome the political crisis in the country as self-proclaimed ‘patriotic’ organisations and opposition parties prepared to hold an anti-government protest in Podgorica on Tuesday.
They accuse the government of violating the constitution by adopting a new law curbing the president’s powers. President Milo Djukanovic, who leads the opposition Democratic Party of Socialists, DPS, is supporting the protest. /Argumentum.al
