Abazovic faces no confidence vote today

The government of Montenegro, headed by Albanian Dritan Abazovic, faces a vote of no confidence today.

The initiative for calling the motion is the Democratic Socialist Party of president Millo Djukanovic, supported by five parties.

There are 36 signatures collected by the MPs for calling this session, while five more are needed.

Abazovic was elected Prime Minister of Montenegro on April 28, while the no-confidence motion against the government he leads was called after the agreement with the Serbian Orthodox Church.

If the Abazovic Government survives, its future will be challenged again on September 2, when the new session of the Assembly will be held, with the initiative of the Democratic Front and the Democrats.
