Civic sector demands dismissal of the RTCG Council member Mimo Draskovic

Today, twenty-two nongovernmental organizations submitted to the Administrative Committee of the Parliament of Montenegro an Initiative for starting the procedure for determining the conflict of interest of Mimo Draskovic, member of the RTCG Council.

The initiative was submitted due to the public political acting of the member of the Council which should be a professional and depoliticized body. Namely, on 9 April 2018, Mimo Draskovic gave an active and open political support to the presidential candidate of the Democratic Party of Socialists Milo Djukanovic at the convention in Bijelo Polje.

The Administrative Board was requested to start the procedure before the Anti-Corruption Agency in order to determine the violation of norms of the Anti-Corruption Law, which apply to the prevention of the conflict of interest during the performance of the public function and to the limitations regarding the performance of the public function of Draskovic.

The initiative was signed by: Vanja Ćalović Marković (Network of Affirmation of NGO Sector), Daliborka Uljarević (Centre for Civic Education), Stevo Muk (Institute Alternative), Ana Novaković (Centre for Development of the NGOs), Slavica Striković (Women’s Action), Mladen Španjević (European Youth Centre of MNE), Božidar Rogović (“Green Action” Pljevlja), Alija Šljuka (“Alternative”, Pljevlja), Drago Zeković (Association for the Protection of the Rights of Workers and the Unemployed Persons of the Municipality of Bijelo Polje), Milorad Mitrović (Breznica, Pljevlja), Safet Adžibulić (Parliament of Bihor), Ljubiša Lečić (Local Youth Council, Pljevlja), Ismet Selimović (E-Roma), Milica Stanković (Green Action, Herceg Novi), Nikola Čabarkapa (Eco movement), Zdravko Janjušević (Democratic Centre of Bijelo Polje), Mirsala Tomić (Association for the Development of the civic sector), Davor Obradović (Green Power, Bijelo Polje), Uglješa Prebiračević (Association of Non-governmental Organizations of Bijelo Polje), Ruzmir Osmanović (Multimedia studio Bijelo Polje), Dragan Radović (Agro Centre), Borislav Ćulafić (Stečajci of Montenegro).
