Serb Parties in Montenegro Form Coalition

Several Serb parties in Montenegro have formed a 'Serbian Unity' coalition as the country heads into parliamentary elections in October.

The People's Party (Narodna Stranka), Serb List (Srpska Lista), Serbian Homeland Party (Otadzbinska srpska stranka) and Serbian Radical Party (Stranka srpskih radikala) have decided to join forces for the October 14 vote.
“At the meeting held on the premises of the People's Party, which was attended by representatives of the four parties, the decision was made to form a coalition- Serbian Unity,” Slavisa Guberinic, a spokesperson for the People's Party, confirmed for the portal Analitika.

The Democratic Serb Party, which had said previously that its condition for a joining a Serb party grouping was that its president, Ranko Kadic, be the top candidate on the coalition ballot, did not join the meeting of the parties.

Guberinic said the parties welcome all interested political entities, individuals, and NGOs who share their political beliefs to join the alliance.

“We will form a team which will work on the platform of programs for Serbian Unity as well as a coordination team for implementing technical and operational activities on the ground,” he said.

The submission of electoral lists in Montenegro began yesterday and will continue until September 19.
