October 8, 2020 - After consultations with the new parliamentary majority representatives, the President of Montenegro, Milo Đukanović, sent a proposal to the Parliament of Montenegro for Zdravko Krivokapić to take on the task of forming the Government.
"Today, October 8, 2020, I held consultations on the prime minister-designate with the members of the coalition list: For the Future of Montenegro - Zdravko Krivokapic, Peace is Our Nation - Aleks Becic and Black on White - Dritan Abazovic. The outcome of these consultations was to propose Zdravko Krivokapić as the prime minister-designate, who will prepare a program and propose its composition within the deadline set by Montenegro's Constitution. The final decision will be taken before the 27th convocation of the Parliament of Montenegro at one of the upcoming meetings of the regular autumn session," reads the explanation made by Đukanović.
After consultations with Djukanovic, Krivokapic said that today was another day of victory for democracy. The leader of the coalition "For the Future of Montenegro" and the prime minister-designate for the new Government, Zdravko Krivokapic, wrote on Twitter:
"Aleksa Becic has just informed me that the President of Montenegro's proposal for the mandate-holder to propose the composition of the new Government has been submitted to the President of the Parliament. I am happy to inform you that I will prepare a program and propose the composition of the new Government of Montenegro, on which the 27th convocation of the Parliament of Montenegro will decide, "Krivokapić wrote.
"We will send the proposal for the new Government to the Assembly very soon. We have another obligation, and that is to look at the system of the entire administration and agree on the composition of the Government by November 8," Krivokapic said.
He sent an invitation to the Albanian list "Genci Nimanbegu - Nik Djelosaj" to participate in forming the new Government, Head of the list Nik Djelosaj confirmed to "Vijesti."
"At this moment, I feel a great pleasure in addressing you on behalf of the coalition" For the Future of Montenegro. " I confirm the readiness, expressed in the agreement on cooperation with the coalitions "Peace is our nation" and "Black on White," to cooperate with minority parties. In the hope of achieving our future collaboration, I would be grateful if you would suggest a date for our meeting," Krivokapic's invitation reads
Genci sees Nimanbeg's invitation as an opportunity to present his political views to the Prime Minister, supported by a very heterogeneous group of coalitions.
He congratulated Krivokapic on his mandate and said that he would acquaint him with his view of Montenegro's political situation, including the challenges that the future Government must address to improve democracy with particular reference to the rights of Albanians in Montenegro.
Today, after consultations with the President of Montenegro, Milo Đukanović, Krivokapić said that he would send all national minority parties an invitation.
The nomination of the prime minister-designate has shown that the transition of power is going smoothly, despite the unjustified doubts of a proportion of the domestic and international public about possible obstructions, Montenegrin President Milo Djukanovic announced later today during talks with the head of the EU Delegation in Podgorica, Oana Cristina Popa.
