Montenegro's ruling party could be ousted from power for first time in 30 years

Montenegro's pro-Western Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS) has secured 35% of votes in a tight and bitterly-contested parliamentary election, its worst result since the country won independence from Serbia 14 years ago.

Official results show the pro-Serbian opposition alliance on 32.5%, meaning that it could feasibly form a government if it can reach consensus with Montenegro's other two opposition parties. That would see the DPS lose control of power in the Balkan nation for the first time in 30 years.

 

Moldova pro-EU parties take narrow lead in elections

A round of intensive political horse-trading is on the cards following Moldova’s parliamentary elections.

No party appears able to form a government although, after a partial count, the three pro-EU parties do have a narrow lead over their pro-Moscow rivals.

With nearly 80% of votes counted, the three pro-EU parties had around 44% while the opposition had around 40%.

The subsequent inevitable tough bargaining will be watched closely by Russia.
