Montenegro’s ruling Democratic Party of Socialists declares leader Milo Djukanovic winner of presidential election.
Djukanovic won Montenegro’s presidential elections with 53.8% of votes. This is the first election since Montenegro joined NATO last year.
Sunday’s vote was seen as test for the long-time leader, who favors European integration over closer ties to Montenegro’s traditional ally, Moscow.
The former prime minister and his DPS have ruled the country for nearly 30 years. Current President Filip Vujanovic did not run due to term limits.
