Montenegro finally gets new government after June polls

Backed by a pro-Russian alliance

31 October, 09:31

(ANSA-AFP) - PODGORICA, OCT 31 - Montenegrin lawmakers on Tuesday voted in a new government, backed by a pro-Russian alliance, nearly five months after general elections. Prime Minister Milojko Spajic's government was voted in after a marathon overnight debate, supported by 46 of 66 the MPs present in the 81-member parliament. "Our vision is Montenegro as the Switzerland of the Balkans and the Singapore of Europe", Spajic, 36, told lawmakers ahead of the vote. His Europe Now party won a slim lead in parliamentary elections in June amid a crowded field of parties, which led to lengthy talks to hammer out a new coalition. The new coalition includes pro-Russian and pro-Serbian parties. (ANSA-AFP).
