Montenegro: DPS calls opposition to get to work

The Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS) stated that the termination of the opposition’s boycott is a victory of the ruling majority and called upon the Democrats to show a responsible attitude towards the work of the Electoral Legislation Committee and the responsibilities they have assumed.

DPS reiterated that following numerous calls by the ruling majority, the Democrats delegated two members in the committee, which was formed by DPS with its coalition partners.

“We want to invite them now to take a responsible attitude towards the work and assumed obligations”, DPS stated.

They add that the fact that the Democrats broke their recklessly given word and stopped the boycott, which is, according to them, praiseworthy, since it is a much more mature move than the persistent denying of reality.

“Political life in Montenegro takes place in the institutions, and the boycott was a bad tactic that cost this party a significant number of voters”, the press release stated.

The ruling party stated that they won by forcing the opposition to stop the boycott.

The reaction from the Democrats came from vice-president Momo Koprivica, who said that this DPS’s press release clearly shows the first consequences of, as he put it, a strong political earthquake that shakes the ranks of the biggest electoral manipulator in the Balkans.

Koprivica stressed out that the current Electoral Reform Committee is established on the foundations of the Brussels Plan, with the insistence of the Democrats and the international community.

“The current Committee has nothing to do with the Committee for “cosmetic” changes according to Gvozdenovic’s plan, since the Democrats did not take part in that Committee. Its only participants were DPS and DF, and it was another one in the row of the models created for staging reforms and changing the electoral will of the citizens”, Koprivica said./ibna
