The winner of the elections in Montenegro, Zdravko Krivokapic, has announced a tougher course against China in the Balkans should he be elected prime minister.

“Here, for example, a Chinese company is building a motorway. With the money that belongs to our citizens ”, Krivokapic told the“ Welt ”(Thursday edition) with a view to Chinese infrastructure projects in Montenegro.

But the public never saw the contracts. He criticized that the kilometer was 20 million euros, "while the usual price in the region is seven million". Now the previous government under long-term ruler Milo Dukanovic must make the agreements with Beijing public. “If we know all the documents, we can act. It may be necessary to renegotiate the contracts with China for the benefit of both sides, ”said Krivokapic. With an alliance of various parties, the scientist won a narrow majority of 41 of the 81 seats in parliament. Montenegro is facing its first change of government in 30 years. Krivokapic also announced that he would work against corruption and for a faster EU accession for Montenegro.
