EU Commissioner for Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, Johannes Hahn, said that the elections in Montenegro were transparent and that it is the time to form a government.

At a press conference in Brussels, he said that Montenegro made good progress on the European path, but that there is room for improvements, particularly in the rule of law.

“The legal framework in the field of rule law is almost complete and now the system has to implement what has been adopted to see results. Negotiations with Montenegro will continue at this pace determined by the results of the fight against organised crime and corruption”, said Hahn.

He said that the boycott of the Parliament is not what democratic majority approves.

“Now is the time to form a government. This is not just a request to all parties in Montenegro, but also in the region and beyond. Boycott is not what democratic majority approves”, said Hahn.

The rapporteur for Montenegro Charles Tannock said that “tiny Montenegro remained a good story”.

Tannock welcomed the elections held last month, which were positively assessed by the OSCE.

“I am disappointed that the opposition boycotted the inaugural session”, added Tannock.
