Spajic: We’re postponing headcount for another month, we want Montenegro to be united and bring economy into focus

Milojko Spajić

New government, along with the parliamentary majority, is going to propose the postponement of the headcount for another month, with the aim of reaching general consensus and accelerating Montenegro’s European perspective, so that we may create conditions for full legitimacy of this important social activity through the improvement of transparency and inclusiveness, as well as by accepting key requirements of the councils of the minority nations and the opposition, stated the Prime Minister-designate, Milojko Spajic.

“Therefore, I consider that the participation of the opposition in the census commissions, like in 2011, is very important for its legitimacy, in order not to question the relevance of data or look for excuses for obstructions and politicization. The headcount represents a statistical category and the quality of collected data is very important for the state, because it helps us in making key decisions for the future of our country. Some of the most significant questions are: how many young people left Montenegro in an attempt to find a better place for living, what’s our labor market like, do we need the revision of the strategy for residential buildings, etc,” Mr Spajic said.
