Vladimir Jokić: There are No Excuses for Violating Law Vladimir Jokić, Copyright: Kotor Municipality

Vladimir Jokić (Democrats of Montenegro) was replaced from the position of the President of the Kotor Municipality today by the votes of parliamentary majority (17 councilors) made by members of the DPS, SD, HGI, LP and former SDP member Bruna Lončarević at the Bizanti Palace.  

After years of silence, the government of Montenegro gave an announcement today, full of untruths, as it said not because of me, but because of the citizens of Kotor and Montenegro, announced Vladimir Jokić. He reacted to the statement by the Government of Montenegro, which stated, among other things, that Jokić ignored Prime Minister Duško Marković for two years.

There is no excuse for violating the law, and the Government of Montenegro brutally violated it. Neither the Prime Minister's vanity, nor his piquet, nor the insurmountable political differences. Nothing can be an excuse for a violation of the law, unless we are in Frankish Spain where there was a motto that friends can do everything, and that there are laws are for the enemies.

He added that there is no reason to justify the fact that the Government interpreted one point of the Law one way on 30 May and 28 days later the other in favor of their local burglars.

"In fact, there would be no single excuse if it was not a government whose party interest is above general interest, above the interests of the citizens and beyond the state's interest. If I had known that the method to get an answer from the Government and the Prime Minister would be writing open letters, I would have sent each letter by the media…

Now that we have found the way to communicate, I remind you that we have appealed to the Constitutional Court because of the way the DUP Kostanjica has been adopted and, if the state does not engage, we will lose the status of UNESCO - for the sake of the interest of offshore companies. I have also written to you about that several times, as you can see in the archives ", said Jokić.

“Kotor has a history that is measured for millennia, it celebrates the Day of the Municipality on November 21, and whoever wants to take part in this celebration is welcome. Going to Podgorica to receive greetings for the Kotor Municipality Day would be degradation of the city's history at the expense of the Government, which I would never allow myself. There is no function, niether political combination, nor the sort of solution that is worth the dignity of the city. If you had respected the dignity of the same town, the prime minister would announce to the host at least twice when visiting Kotor municipality. This is a question of manners in the end. How many times the state protocol ignored local government, I will not even waste words, " Vladimir Jokić stressed.

Finally, he urged Prime Minister Duško Marković to look at the correspondence he had sent him once again.
