Montenegro Legislative Elections scheduled for 29 March 2009

PODGORICA, Montenegro (AFP)--Montenegrin President Filip Vujanovic Tuesday called early legislative elections for March 29, in a move that gives his allies a chance to extend their near 20-year hold on power.

The assembly dissolved itself Monday, almost a year before its mandate was to expire at the end of 2009, with the ruling coalition led by Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic seeking a new term to speed up European Union integration.

New elections, same results.

Why even have them? The DPS will stand to win again -- 20 freakin years in power.

Is there relief out there???
