Podgorica, (MINA) – The Administrative Committee failed to pass the draft proposal of the Special Parliamentary Group to appoint Aleksandar Damjanovic as a member of the Electoral Legislation Reform Committee.

Rasko Konjevic of the Social Democratic Party and Branka Bosnjak and Milutin Djukanovic of the Democratic Front voted for Damjanovic’s appointment, Milorad Vuletic of the Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS) was against it, while the other Committee members from the ruling coalition abstained from the vote.

Administrative Committee Chair Ljuidj Skrelja asked at the beginning of the session if there was an agreement within the opposition parties on assignment of a seat to Damjanovic, which caused violent reaction by the opposition MPs.

Konjevic asked Skrelja if, when he voted for the decision to give the Democrats two seats in the Committee, he did it in line with the decision on forming the Committee, and why he failed to ask the opposition to reach an agreement on that occasion.

Skrelja reiterated that the Special Parliamentary Group was not initially interested to delegate a member to the Committee and that Damjanovic’s proposal came in late.

“Don’t think that there is no grounds for such a decision, Damjanovic has the right to be the member of the Committee, but his application was late. His coalition, the member of which he was when he entered the parliament, is presented by (Nedjeljko) Rudovic”, said Skrelja.
