The Parliament of Montenegro, by a majority decision, adopted a proposal to start the procedure for the resignation of President Milo Djukanovic due to violation of the country’s constitution.
This is reported by Ukrinform with reference to RTCG.
Out of 80 members of the Parliament of Montenegro, 41 deputies spoke in favor of the impeachment proposal.
Djukanovych is accused of violating Article 95, paragraph 5 of the country’s constitution – he did not invite all parliamentary parties to consultations regarding the candidacy of the future prime minister.
Since 1991, Djukanovych has effectively ruled the country, alternately holding the positions of president and prime minister.
We will remind: on the night of August 20, a vote of no confidence was passed on the government of Montenegro, headed by Prime Minister Dritan Abazovich. This happened three weeks after the conclusion of an agreement between Montenegro and the Serbian Orthodox Church.
As part of the agreement signed by Prime Minister Abazović and Serbian Patriarch Porfiry, the legal status of the Serbian Orthodox Church in Montenegro was approved, appropriate property guarantees were provided, and some of its special rights were revoked.
