Podgorica, Montenegro

Montenegrin Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic won re-election this week in his country’s first parliamentary election since it became independent from Serbia in May. His center-left coalition took an absolute majority in the 81-seat legislature. Djukanovic, though, may not stay on as prime minister now that he has achieved his goals of shepherding Montenegro to independence and positioning it to join the E.U. He noted that he has been premier or president of the republic for the past 15 years. “I’m a bit tired and fed up with this job,” he said. “In the next few weeks, I’ll think about stepping down.”
