    The people of Montenegro will head to the polls this week, with NATO and the EU hot topics; and, could Scotland see another independence referendum in the next two years?

    The people of Montenegro go to the polls on Sunday for their national parliamentary elections. Around seventeen parties are vying for votes — but just what the government will look like is anybody’s guess.  Membership of NATO and the EU are likely to dominate campaigning. We speak to Dr Dejan Stjepanovic from the University of Edinburgh.

    Liam O’Hare brings us a special report from the Scottish National Party’s autumn conference. With talk of a possible second referendum on Scotland’s independence, and Scotland's response to Brexit. Liam talks to SNP MSP Sandra White, and gauges the reaction from conference delegates.
