Montenegro: The government continues to work, Bečić’s Democrats against the removal of Krivokapić

The Government of Montenegro will continue to do its job in the domain of constitutional and legal powers, and the constituents of the government will certainly work on finding an agreement on overcoming the existing situation, said Prime Minister Zdravko Krivokapić.

Answering the question of the president of the Social Democrats’ club, Ivan Brajović, whether there is a plan to overcome the hitherto unnoticed political situation in Montenegro, the Prime Minister stated that the magnificent victory, which took place on August 30 last year, must not be under a question mark.

Krivokapić said that it was pretentious to qualify this political situation as unnoticed and pointed out that the issue of trust in the Government is not a matter of personal impression, but a verifiable fact, which is determined by conducting the procedure prescribed by the Constitution.

Krivokapić stated that the issue of a quorum for the work of the Assembly is not a matter for the Prime Minister, but for the deputies.

“The government will continue to do its job in the domain of constitutional and legal powers, and the constituents of the government will certainly work on finding an agreement on overcoming the existing situation,” Krivokapić said.

Democrats announced that the present government and PM Krivokapić have their support. Democrats, with President Aleksa Bečić, who is also the Assembly speaker, said that they do not agree to the overthrow of the Government of Montenegro, and the only reconstruction is possible, without the election of a new Prime Minister.

On the eve of today’s meeting of the leaders of the parliamentary majority, Democratic Montenegro presented its views on the current political situation in the country and the relations between the part of the parliamentary majority and the Government of Montenegro.

“We do not agree to the overthrow of the 42nd democratic government of Montenegro. There are no election of a new prime minister and a new government of Montenegro,” the Democrats said.

They also say that they do not support calling new parliamentary elections, and that “only the reshuffle of the Government is possible, based on the principle of consent of the current Prime Minister and the parliamentary majority.”

“All other combinatorics are possible, but not with the participation of the Democrat MPs,” the party pointed out.
