Montenegrin opposition to conduct lustration after forming government : Party Leader

Belgrade, Sep 4 (Sputnik) Montenegro's future government that will be composed of majority opposition parties following a general election last week, will purge the state institutions and security services of appointees of the former ruling party, Nebojsa Medojevic, a cochairman of the For the Future of Montenegro party, said on Friday.
The parliamentary elections in Montenegro this past Sunday saw a bloc of three opposition parties — For the Future of Montenegro, Peace is Our Nation and Black on White — win a historic combined majority of 41 seats in the 81-seat legislature. The Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS) of President Milo Djukanovic only gained 30 seats.
"Many reformist governments in post-totalitarian and post-Communist countries outlawed the ruling parties, opened archives of intelligence services, conducted lustration, disbanded security services and rearranged them from scratch and purged the courts and prosecution from the regime henchmen. All this awaits us along with serious economic reforms and the transition from the destructive system of neoliberal capitalism to the model of a prosperous state," Medojevic told a briefing.
