Peace Is Our Nation

The Peace is Our Nation (Montenegrin: Mir je na?a nacija / ? ), initially announced as the Citizens' Bloc (Gra?anski blok / ?) is a big tent, moderate and pro-European pre-election opposition political coalition in Montenegro, formed for the August 2020 parliamentary election.[1][2]


The coalition was formed on 12 July 2020, and it is composed of the Democrats, DEMOS, the New Left, PUPI, as well some independent candidates, such as liberal politician Vladimir Pavi?evi?, former leader of the Montenegrin party.[3]

The main goal of the coalition is to overthrow the ruling Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS) of President Milo ?ukanovi?, which has been in power since 1991, announcing an anticorruption, reformist and moderate platform, also representing itself as civic and multinational alternative to the growing populist and nationalist rhetoric within the ruling DPS and opposition Democratic Front (DF), which they accuse of polarizing Montenegrin society and inciting ethnic hatred and unrest. Leader of the Democrats Aleksa Be?i? will head the joint electoral list for the parliamentary election in August 2020.[4][1][5]

The August 2020 election resulted in a victory for the opposition parties and the fall from power of the ruling DPS, which has ruled the country since the introduction of the multi-party system in 1990. The coalition won 12.54% of the popular vote, which equals 10 seats in the parliament.[6] Coalition list leader Be?i? and the leaders of the lists For the Future of Montenegro and United Reform Action, Zdravko Krivokapi? and Dritan Abazovi?, agreed during meeting on several principles on which the future government will rest, including the formation of an expert government, to continue to work on the European Union accession process, fight against corruption, overcoming society polarization, and to work on changing the disputed Law on Religious Communities.[7] They welcomed minority parties of Bosniaks and Albanians, and wished to form government with them.[7]
