At today’s government session, prime minister Milo Djukanovic reiterated that the offer to the opposition to enter the government was a step the government had to make to demonstrate a responsible attitude towards the lack of unity within the opposition transformed in the distrust towards the institutions, but that he was absolutely convinced that his party would win the elections, despite the concessions.

“The ultimate goal is to create conditions in which the future government can normally function and not as the current government, which invested a lot of energy in protecting the country from destruction by both the opposition and co-called opposition within the government”, he said.

At the end of the session, the PM thanked the ministers who will withdraw from their positions soon, depending on the opposition deal on sharing ministerial posts, in order for the political agreement to be implemented.
