Montenegro

Yearbook 2009

Montenegro. At the beginning of the year, President Filip Vujanović announced a new election until March, just over a year in advance. The reason stated was that the government wanted a clear mandate from voters to implement reforms needed for Montenegro to join the EU. The application for membership in the Union had been submitted before the New Year. The opposition said the election was announced in advance so that it would be held before the international financial crisis had a full impact. The economy had shown very good growth following the independence of Serbia in 2006. The government coalition, which is dominated by Prime Minister Milo Đukanović's Socialist Party, won just over half the votes in the election and received 48 of the 91 seats. According to countryaah, the second largest party was Montenegro's Socialist People's Party, supported by 16 percent of voters.
