    Montenegrin opposition will demand the resignation of the country's PM during the upcoming Saturday rally.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Montenegro opposition will rally Saturday to call for the resignation of the country's prime minister, Milo Djukanovic, over election fraud, one of the opposition leaders told Sputnik Serbia.

    "On Saturday, we shall call all citizens of Montenegro, I think a lot of people would participate, to support our ultimatum and our demands. We want to let Milo Djukanovic know that we have had enough of his 30 years of rule, we are tired of election fraud, that Montenegro wants freedom of choice, a free society and that it would not agree to be robbed under any pretexts," New Serb Democracy’s Andrija Mandic said.

    Last week, Montenegrin police forcefully dispersed a campsite of the opposition, the site of a prolonged protest in front of the parliament. The protesters are calling for the resignation of the government, accusing it of corruption and undemocratic practice.

    Moscow called the fact that the campsite was dispersed by police "regrettable."

    On Tuesday, six police officers and two civilians were injured during an anti-Djukanovic demonstration in Montenegro's capital city of Pristina, while media reported that law enforcement was using tear gas.
