Government of Montenegro
Democratic Montenegro reacted after the Civic Movement United Reform Action (GP URA) handed over this initiative to the Assembly.
"URA deputies together with DPS submitted an initiative to overthrow the government. The betrayal of the people's will of epic proportions is being prepared", the Democrats state on Facebook.

The motion was signed by 31 MPs from Black on White and Milo Djukanovic's opposition Democratic Party of Socialists, DPS, Social Democrats, minority parties and the Social Democratic Party.
The anniversary will be solemnly marked on Tuesday, December 7, the Government of Montenegro announced.
The first year of the government's work will be marked in an atmosphere of great political and institutional crisis in Montenegro, even deeper divisions and demands for the formation of a new government, i.e. a vote of no confidence in this government.

Krivokapic said that economic stability and European Union membership must be the key goals of the new government - which unlike the current non-partisan cabinet, will be made up of political party officials, as the Democratic Front and Democratic Montenegro have demanded.
