Longtime Montenegrin president to face newcomer in runoff – KESQ

Associated Press

PODGORICA, Montenegro (AP) — Early projections after Sunday’s presidential election in Montenegro suggest the longtime Montenegrin incumbent will face off against a political newcomer in a presidential runoff next month. Neither contender garnered enough support in Sunday’s first round of voting for an outright victory. Projections published by the usually reliable Center for Monitoring and Research showed that incumbent Milo Đukanović, 61, will face economist Jakov Milatović, 37, on April 2. The elections took place amid political turmoil and uncertainty over whether the tiny NATO member state from the Balkans will unblock its bid to join the European Union or instead seek to improve ties with Serbia and Russia.
