The Montenegrin parliament voted in on Dec. 4 a new government led by Zdravko Krivokapic ending 30 years of rule by President Milo Djukanovic's Democratic Party of Socialists which is now the opposition.

The cabinet consists of 12 ministers, while the leader of the Civic Movement United Reform Action (URA), Dritan Abazovic, will be the deputy prime minister in charge of the security sector.

Abazovic and the interior minister are pro-Western politicians, which analysts say was a concession to the URA and the international community. The new prime minister, Zdravko Krivokapic, was sworn into office, after which his ministers signed the same oath.

The new cabinet was voted in by 41 votes, with 28 votes against while one MP abstained from voting.
