Djukanovic declares victory in Montenegro presidential elections

Djurica

The victory of Djukanovic was celebrated at the headquarters of DPS.

Based on the projection, Montenegro's ruling party declared its leader the victor. He says Djukanovic's victory in Sunday's election was the result of "blackmail and pressure".

When supported, the outcome will present a big raise for Djukanovic, that defied this past year, Russian Federation to carry his own country.

With 80 per cent of ballots counted, the Center for Monitoring and Research said on Sunday that Djukanovic had won about 53 per cent of the vote, ahead of his main opponent Mladen Bojanic with 34 per cent.

Bojanic, an economic expert and former lawmaker, has accused the ruling party of corruption and links to organized crime following a spike in crime-related violence.

Bojanic, the second ranked candidate asked his voters not to understand the result as a defeat, but as a basis for future struggle against the ruling party and refused to congratulate Djukanovic on the victory.

Djukanovic led Montenegro to independence from much-larger Serbia in 2006 and was behind the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation bid.

Djukanovic's Democratic Socialist Party won the last general election in 2016, but he left the office to his deputy Dusko Markovic.

After counting almost 90 percent of the ballots, the independent Center for Monitoring and Research say Djukanovic won about 53 percent of the vote while his main opponent, Mladen Bojanic, won 33 percent.

Voters in Montenegro are casting ballots in a presidential election, with former Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic expected to win after his party defied Russian Federation and took the small Balkan nation into North Atlantic Treaty Organisation past year.

The vote, the first since Montenegro joined North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, was seen as a test for Mr Djukanovic and his bid for European integration. Djukanovic's main challenger is Mladen Bojanic, backed by several opposition groups, including pro-Russian ones. President Filip Vujanovic is maybe not running due to word limits.

Two Russian citizens also are being tried in absentia for the plot, which prosecutors said included a plan to assassinate Djukanovic.

Approximately 530,000 voters can choose among candidates.
