Political Crisis in Montenegro Threatens Government’s Reform Promises

Montenegro’s technocrat government made big promises when it took power in December, but it is struggling to retain the support of the parliamentary majority that voted it into office.

Voted into office by a parliamentary majority comprising three political blocs, Montenegro’s technocrat government finds its hands tied by that same ruling alliance, casting into doubt the reforms it promised following the end of three decades of uninterrupted rule by the Democratic Party of Socialists, DPS.

The three blocs united after an August election last year that handed them the most slender of majorities, but beyond a common goal of ousting the DPS, they have struggled to speak with one voice when it comes to governing the Adriatic republic of 620,000 people.
