Djukanovic eyes joining EU after winning Montenegrin presidential election

Milo Djukanovic was set to win Montenegro’s presidential election on Sunday with 53.8 percent of votes, according to a projection by the Centre for Monitoring and Research (CeMI) pollster, Reuters reported.

STEPANAKERT, APRIL 16, ARTSAKHPRESS:Djukanovic — a candidate for the ruling Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS)—, served as Prime Minister in the 90s.

Milos Nikolic, a DPS parliamentary deputy, told reporters at the party's headquarters that there would be no second round, according to Reuters.

"Djukanovic is the new president of Montenegro."

Djukanovic was a major player in Montenegro's politics from 1991 to 2016 and announced he would go back to politics last month as a "responsibility for Montenegro's future", as quoted by Euronews.

The future president is likely to complete talks for EU membership while in power.
