The government of Prime Minister-designate, Mr Zdravko Krivokapić, which was announced as an expert, reformist and conciliatory, shows unparalleled chauvinism, hate speech, denial of traditional, cultural and national specificity of Montenegrins, the largest national community in Montenegro, it is stated in the petition calling on the MPs not to vote for the proposed candidates for the Government of Montenegro.

Izvor: 

“The fact that the prime minister-designate was proposed by the Serbian Orthodox Church and that its influence on the formation of the government is attested by personal solutions in the government, as well as the fact that open fundamentalist views of the prime minister-designate are directly opposed to the constitutionally defined secular character of Montenegro. Mr Krivokapić’s statement that he sees the relations between Serbia and Montenegro as the relations between the two Serbian states is an attack on the civil concept determined by the highest legal act of the state of Montenegro.

The selection of candidates for ministers from only one religious community and from members of only one nation, with the exception of the decorative installation of URA leaders, indicates that the new government will erase another important pillar of Montenegrin society – its multiculturalism. Numerous public appearances of the prime minister-designate as the future holder of the highest state function of the executive power and his candidates for ministers point at the conclusion that the election of a new government will jeopardize all values on which modern Montenegro rests”, the petition reads.

The petition states that the appointment of Ms Vesna Bratić as the new Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sports was obviously motivated by her clerical-nationalist views, and not by professional and managerial qualifications.

A number of her scandalous statements incompatible with the civic, secular, anti-fascist and multicultural character of our country indicate that it is not a matter of reckless staffing of the prime minister-designate, but the intention to collapse the foundations of the Montenegrin state through the ministries in which educational, cultural and scientific policy is created”.

“We want to draw the Montenegrin public’s attention to the fact that the responsibility for appointing a person who promotes chauvinism, cultural racism and fundamentalism cannot be borne only by the prime minister-designate, but by all political groups and MPs who vote for the election of such government and such ministers. We urge Montenegrin MPs, regardless of political and ideological differences, to deny confidence in the proposed government and thus protect the fundamental, constitutionally defined values of modern Montenegro”.
