Djukanovic runs for eighth term in Montenegro

Longtime Montenegrin leader Milo Djukanovic is running in Sunday’s presidential election in Montenegro, which if he wins, will grant him an eighth term as either prime minister or president of the small Balkan state. Djukanovic has already served six terms as prime minister and one as president. His main competition in the presidential vote is a pro-Russian opposition-backed candidate, Mladen Bojanic, who was an opponent of Montenegro’s bid to join NATO. Djukanovic will have to capture more than 50 percent of the vote Sunday to avoid a runoff.
