MP of the Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS) Ivan Vuković stated that "by publishing the withdrawn decision on the introduction of forced administration in Savnik, the Government is sending a message that legal and political violence is not only acceptable, but also profitable".

He made this statement as part of the questions he asked the Minister of Public Administration, Maraš Dukaj, as part of parliamentary questions.

"The government is sending a message that, if someone tomorrow is not satisfied with the assumed result of the elections in Budva, Andrijevica or the parliamentary elections - they should send a few people who would create an incident, prevent the elections from coming to an end, and the government will legitimize violent behavior," he explained. is Vuković.

The MP of DPS reminded that the elections in Savnik were held in accordance with the provisions of the same law according to which they were held in other municipalities.

Vuković asked Dukaj why he sent the withdrawn decision to be published in the Official Gazette and added that "in that way, the right of every citizen to vote and be elected was abolished."

"Then what is the purpose of the election process and who does the government that carries out the destruction of the constitutional order serve?" he asked and added that "The government that does this cannot tell the citizens about IBAR, but must answer the question of whether it is ready to bear responsibility for introducing anarchy in the state".

Vuković pointed out that the introduction of forced administration violated the law on local self-government, but also that the opinion of the State Election Commission was ignored that the election process was not completed, and therefore that forced administration cannot be introduced.

Dukaj replied that he expected questions about the situation in Budva and Andrijevica, but also that he understood why they were not asked.

"It is not a good message to deal with the system selectively and politically. Me and my team proved not only in the 44th Government but also in the 43rd that we have a clear and open attitude towards all municipalities in Montenegro. "Savnik, the Ministry of Public Administration acted according to the provisions of the Rules of Procedure of the Government of Montenegro. The Municipality of Šavnik is not an exception, the Ministry of Public Administration is obliged to act according to the Constitution and the Law," said Dukaj.

Vuković pointed out that "political representatives of those who tried to obstruct the political process are brought into power through the back door".

"We saw who the government appointed to the board of commissioners. In addition to the others, there were also people who did their best to prevent the election process from taking place here from 2022," said the DPS deputy.

According to him, this practice is "another in a series of rotten compromises to the detriment of the state and state interests for the sake of preserving peace in the house between ideologically different parties".

Vuković recalled that his party invited Prime Minister Milojko Spajić for consultations because "he is afraid that this could happen again in Budva, Andrijevica and at the state level", but also that Spajić still has not responded to their calls.
