November 26, 2020 - Tomorrow, November 27, Prime Minister-designate Zdravko Krivokapić will present the final proposal for the composition of the new Government of Montenegro, the Civic Movement URA announced. The statement reads that Krivokapić will hold a press conference at noon in the hotel "Center Vile" in Podgorica.
Krivokapic previously announced that he would submit the program and proposal for the new government to the Parliament of Montenegro by Friday, November 27.
The parliament will decide on the new government during the session scheduled for December 2, with the possibility for the deputies who cannot attend due to the coronavirus to vote electronically.
Prime Minister-designate Zdravko Krivokapic will change the current practice if he submits the program and proposal of the new government to the Assembly by Friday because his predecessors from the Democratic Party of Socialists did so before the election, the daily Vijesti writes.
Krivokapic is not obliged to do so by the Constitution, nor by the legislation. By the Parliament of Montenegro Roles of Procedure, the PM-designate submits the exposition and the new government's proposal before the beginning of the session.
At the request of the parliamentary groups during the meeting with the prime minister it was agreed that it would be three days earlier so that the parties would know when to vote, given that the executive power is conceived as expert.
The party bodies of the Democrats (DCG), NOVA, the Democratic People's Party (DNP), the Socialist People's Party (SNP), and the Movement for Changes (PzP) should formally decide over the weekend whether to support the prime minister-designate. All of them declaratively announced to do so.
Krivokapic has already announced the list of ministers he counts on to take specific roles. The leading positions in the Ministries of Defense and Interior remain vacant.
One of them, as confirmed to "Vijesti" yesterday, will probably belong to the leader of GP URA, Dritan Abazović, who will also be the Deputy Prime Minister.
After lawyer Nikola Terzić withdrew his candidacy for a position at the top of the Ministry of the Interior, the selection of his successor is difficult because few are not politically compromised, have knowledge and readiness for that position, confirmed "Vijesti" from several sources.
Earlier, Abazovic insisted on several occasions that his Black and White platform controls the security sector and that this is the expectation of "Western partners" - influential embassies, and NATO member countries.
