Montenegro President re-elected for third time

Montenegro’s President Filip Vujanovic has won a third term in office, the electoral commission has said, despite opposition claims that their candidate was the winner.

Vujanovic won 51.21 percent of the votes compared with Miodrag Lekic’s 48.79 percent, commission chairman Ivan Kalezic told reporters on Monday.

Both candidates had claimed victory in the election for the largely ceremonial presidential post, and opposition members said they would not recognise Vujanovic’s victory in Sunday’s ballot, even if confirmed by the official election commission.

The presidential election was the country’s second since it proclaimed independence from Serbia in 2006.
