A member of Montenegro’s ruling coalition has called for President Milo Djukanovic to be impeached after the president announce he would travel to the town of Cetinje to prevent the inauguration of the new head of the Serbian Orthodox Church in Montenegro.

Djukanovic called on the Serbian Orthodox Church to give up plans to inaugurate its new head in the Adriatic country at a monastery in the former capital Cetinje.

His words added to the already highly tense situation in the small country, where Metropolitan Bishop Joanikije II is due to be inaugurated on September 5 in Cetinje Monastery, which is seen as the historic cradle of Montenegrin statehood.

“I think it would be wise to move the inauguration and do it in one of the many other monasteries of the Serbian Orthodox Church in Montenegro. That would only be a responsible attitude towards Montenegro and its national interests, all in order to achieve multiethnic harmony and good interstate relations,” Djukanovic said at a speech in Cetinje on August 28, which was live broadcasted by RTCG.
