Elec­tion win for pro-Westerner

Western Mail - - UK&WORLD NEWS -

MONTENEGRO’S pro-West­ern rul­ing party leader Milo Djukanovic se­cured out­right vic­tory in the coun­try’s pres­i­den­tial vote, avoid­ing a run-off.

A near-com­plete vote count showed Mr Djukanovic won 54% of the bal­lot, while his main op­po­nent, Mladen Bo­janic, had 33.3%.

Sun­day’s vote, the first since Montenegro joined the Nato West­ern mil­i­tary alliance in De­cem­ber, was seen as a test for Mr Djukanovic, who favours Euro­pean in­te­gra­tion over closer ties to tra­di­tional ally Moscow.
