The President of Montenegro, Jakov Milatović, said that today's appointment of the Supreme State Prosecutor was a key step in strengthening the rule of law and the administration of justice in Montenegro, but also proved the ability of our country to overcome divisions in the name of the common public good.

Today, the Assembly elected lawyer Milorad Marković for the VDT.

"Today is a significant day for Montenegro and the building of our democratic institutions. The Supreme State Prosecutor was elected by a broad consensus in the Parliament, after almost five years as acting state. This was a key step in strengthening the rule of law and the administration of justice in Montenegro, but also proved the ability of our country to overcome divisions in the name of the common public good," Milatović wrote on the Iks network.

This, he said, is a step towards further strengthening the justice system, a more determined fight against organized crime and corruption, and ultimately, the establishment of a more just society.

"Hereby we prove our commitment to the democratic principles and European standards that I have emphasized since the beginning of my mandate, in order to become part of the European family and the first next member of the EU as soon as possible. We are moving forward strongly, with the belief in a better future, united in our European aspirations and goals. Our goal is clearly defined: a strong, stable and democratic Montenegro, based on the rule of law and justice," concluded Milatović.
