In a transcript of an interview with Austria’s ORF TV, Đukanović said the Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS) would accept that the three opposition alliances jointly secured a majority of 41 deputies in the tiny Balkan country’s 81-seat parliament on August 30.
“We are ready to accept this election outcome (and) to be a responsible (and) the strongest opposition party,” Đukanović said in the interview aired on September 2.
The three opposition alliances have said they are ready to form a government and that they would continue Montenegro’s bid to join the European Union, Reuters adds.
