The Prime Minister of Montenegro Zdravko Krivokapić assessed that the Government can be proud of what it has achieved in the first 100 days, adding that expectations are one thing and skills are another.
At the press conference to mark the 100th day since the Government took office, Krivokapić said that numerous examples show the irresponsible attitude and negligence of previous governments towards citizens. He said the extent of Montenegro’s functioning has been reduced to nepotism, evident at every turn.
Krivokapić noted that political corruption in the judiciary had an epilogue.
“All citizens know that the ‘Snimak’ case is such that we can conclude that someone did not do the job properly. “Neither the Government nor the Assembly is to blame for this, but the judicial system which was created to protect someone and punish someone in advance,” said Krivokapic.
Speaking about the coronavirus pandemic, Krivokapić said that the biggest heroes were health workers.
“That is why we owe them gratitude, because they are tirelessly trying to save every human life,” Krivokapić said.
He assessed that the weakness of the Government was the incomplete support of those who voted for its election, adding that it is the only case in the last 30 years when the biggest opponents of the Government come from the political wing that is now in power.
“It is unnatural, but even in such conditions this Government managed to achieve certain results,” Krivokapić said.
As he argued, the government is trying to be transparent.
“In these 100 days, you can not find a single ounce of corruption. “This government wants the transformation of Montenegro, which will ensure the prosperity of all,” said Krivokapi.
He said the Government’s goal is for Montenegro to be ready for the tourist season, stressing that the country will do its best to vaccinate 35% of the population by mid-June.
As he stated, the Government has had the tremendous support of the international community since the moment he was invited to be a guest in Brussels.
“The international community recognizes that this government is truly committed to the European path,” Krivokapić noted.
Speaking of diplomacy, he said the law stipulates that only 30% of politicians and experts can be diplomats, adding that the Government wants to change “the relationship between career diplomats and the other”.
Krivokapić said he was disappointed with the staff decisions they make and analyze at Government sessions.
He noted that the criterion for this government is competence, “because if it is expertise, I think it could be more the same.”
