During this week, meetings were held in the Parliament of Montenegro with MPs of Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS) Marta Šćepanović and Nikola Gegaj, MP and president of Liberal Party (LP) Andrija Popović, whereby MP Ljerka Dragičević from HGI also attended the meeting.

Amendments were prepared within the project “Regulation of equal approach of media to public funds in Montenegro”, which is a part of a regional project “Media observatory for South-eastern Europe”, conducted by regional partnership of ten civil society organisations, headed by Peace Institute from Ljubljana, with the financial support from European Union.
