The Democratic Party of Socialists announced the victory of Milo Djukanovic in the elections. Based on 100 percent of the data processed, DPS Djukanovic won 53.8 percent of the votes, ahead of the candidate of the major part of the opposition, Mladen Bojanic, who won 33.5 percent of the vote, the CDT said.
DJUKANOVIC ADDRESSED THE CITIZENS
- I am convinced that we will not fail the expectations of the citizens and that we will make that final step in the next five years - Djukanovic said in the Old building of the Government.
He said that he appreciates the enthusiasm, loyalty, and commitment of the citizens and that he is happy because they understand that this road will take them to a better life even though they have problems in everyday life. He thanked the election infrastructure of DPS and coalition partners and said that they are "unbeatable coalition".
The polling stations were closed at 20:00 hours. State Audit Institution President Mersudin Dautovic estimated that the elections went in a peaceful atmosphere, that citizens showed maturity and responsibility. Dautovic said that State Audit Institution had almost no work throughout the day and that only one objection was received from the presidential candidate of a major part of the opposition Bojanic.
He said that State Audit Institution held an emergency session and concluded that the objection was premature, that it should have been previously submitted to the municipal election commissions.
Djukanovic thanked all citizens who participated in the elections regardless of who they were voting for. The Democratic Party of Socialists announced the victory of Milo Djukanovic in the elections earlier. Milos Nikolic, deputy of the party, said that based on 80 percent of the sample, Djukanovic had over 54 percent of the votes.
He said that this was a big and historic victory "in a campaign in which he was alone against everyone".
THACI WAS THE FIRST TO CONGRATULATE
Kosovo President Hashim Thaci was the first who sent the congratulations to Milo Djukanovic, who wrote on Twitter that this was "the victory of Montenegro, but also for the whole region striving for NATO and European integration".
