Democratic Montenegro (Montenegrin and Serbian: Demokratska Crna Gora, cyrillic script? ? ?), also known as the Democrats (Demokrate / ), is a big tent, centrist and pro-european[20] political party in Montenegro. Democrats currently has nine MPs in the parliament, elected in 2020, from the big tent Peace is Our Nation (MNN) electoral list. Its founder and current leader is Aleksa Be?i?, incumbent President of the Parliament. It is also the second largest political party in the parliament.

History

The Democratic Montenegro was formed in 2015 when the faction of Socialist People's Party split and formed a new political party, represented by 2 MPs in the Parliament of Montenegro.[21][22]

The Democrats increased their number of MPs from 2 to 8 in the October 2016 parliamentary election and after the local elections held the same year, the party gained mayoral positions in Budva and Kotor municipalities. At the local elections held in Herceg Novi in May 2017 the party won 9 out of 34 seats, leading the opposition coalition which formed the local government.[23] Since the constitution the new parliament the entire opposition (all 39 MPs out of 81 in total) started a collective boycott of all parliamentary sittings, due to claims of electoral fraud at the 2016 parliamentary elections, Democratic Montenegro MPs remained in a boycott with the same demands until the end of the term.[24]

In March 2018, Democrats decides to support the candidacy of independent candidate Mladen Bojani? to run for president of Montenegro at April 2018 presidential election, as did Democratic Front (DF), Socialist People's Party (SNP), United Reform Action (URA) and United Montenegro (UCG).[25][26] At the election, Bojani? came second, behind Milo ?ukanovi?, with 33.40% of the vote. In the 2018 local elections, Democrats formed an electoral coalition with the United Reform Action in a number of municipalities. After elections Democrats become part of the local government only in Berane, forming an post-election coalition with DF and SNP, remaining opposition in the rest of the municipalities.[27]

In July 2020, Democratic Montenegro decided to enter the big tent Peace is Our Nation (Mir je na?a nacija) coalition with Demos, New Left and PUPI, as well some independent candidates, such as liberal politician Vladimir Pavi?evi?, former leader of the Montenegrin,[28] in order to participate at the forthcoming August 2020 parliamentary election.[29][10] On 23 September, 41 deputies of the three lists of the new majority in parliament (Peace is Our Nation, For the Future of Montenegro and the United Reform Action) elected Democrats leader Be?i? as the new President of the Parliament of Montenegro, 4 deputies from minority parties (3 from the Bosniak Party and 1 from Albanian Alternative) also voted for his election.[30]
