Montenegro’s former prime minister and president, Milo Djukanovic is heading for a victory in Sunday’s presidential polls in Montenegro, with 57.6% of votes, Cemi agency said after counting nine percent of ballots.

Axar.az reports citing TASS.

Djukanovic is followed by opposition candidate Mladlen Bojanic, with 33.9% of votes. Next are the only woman candidate Draginja Vuksanovic (four percent), and the leader of the Real Montenegro party, Marko Milacic (3.4%).

Montenegro’s presidential office was contested by seven candidates. According opinion polls, the frontrunners were Djukanovic and Bojanic, the single opposition candidate. A runoff vote was anticipated but now it looks like Djukanovic can win in the first round of voting.

Montenegro’s president is elected by general vote for a term of five years. In case neither of the seven candidates manages to win more than a half of votes, a runoff election between two candidates scoring the biggest number of votes in the first round will be appointed in a span of two weeks, on April 29. If both win equal number of votes in the runoff election, a third round will be appointed in seven days.
