BRUSSELS (Sputnik) — Last week, the opposition demanded Montenegro's Prime Minister Milo Dukanovic to step down by October 24. The prime minister denied to resign.
"I could reassure the minister that we will certainly publish very soon our annual [EU accession] progress report, and I think in that channel respect things are going well, into the right direction," Hahn told journalists following a meeting with Minister of Interior of Montenegro Rasko Konjevic at the European Commission.
He also noted that the sides had discussed the preparation for the parliamentary elections in Montenegro scheduled for 2016.
"We are still waiting for the final implementation of the electoral legislation…I was reassured by the minister that he will conclude this work by March next year," Hahn said.
Since late September, thousands of opponents of the Montenegro's current government have been gathering on the streets in Podgorica demanding the creation of an interim government and early parliamentary elections.
