Montenegrin opposition will not cooperate with ruling party after election win

Podgorica, Sept 3 (Sputnik) Montenegrin opposition coalition Black on White, formed around the URA movement along with other opposition forces, is striving for political changes in the country and will not cooperate with President Milo Djukanovic’s ruling Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS), general secretary of the coalition Mileta Radovanic said on Thursday.
According to the results of Sunday's parliamentary elections in Montenegro, three blocs of opposition forces — For the Future of Montenegro, Peace is Our Nation and Black on White — won a combined majority of 41 seats in the 81-seat legislature, while DPS only gained 30 seats. On Wednesday, DPS expressed readiness to form a parliamentary majority without radical pro-Serb opposition, indirectly inviting the Euro-reformist URA movement to cooperate.
"We have already done a historic thing - Montenegro has not changed the regime in free elections for 30 years. In fact, in our entire history we have never changed power in elections ... As for Mr. Djukanovic and a possible invitation to cooperation from the DPS, we have not yet received it officially, we have seen it in the media. But in all our rhetoric and election campaign, we acted as an opposition party and asked citizens to vote for change. And if we are now that weight on the scales ... of course, we must comply with the will of citizens who have shown that they are seeking changes," Radovanic said.
