Post-monitoring dialogue with Montenegro

Amendment No. 2 | Doc. 15132 | 21 April 2021

Committee on the Honouring of Obligations and Commitments by Member States of the Council of Europe (Monitoring Committee)
2021 - First part-session
In the draft resolution, after paragraph 6.3, insert the following paragraph:

"commends the political maturity demonstrated by both the new majority and the new opposition in the immediate aftermath of the elections held in August 2020, that allowed for a peaceful shift of power and urges them to continue on this positive trend; at the same time, regrets that the electoral legal framework remained largely unchanged during the last general elections, despite the repeated recommendations of the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE/ODIHR) to address its flaws and limitations, and that practices contrary to OSCE/ODIHR principles were once again observed during these elections, notably in the fields of abuse of State resources, independent media coverage and campaign financing."
