More than 5,000 opposition supporters protested in the Montenegrin capital Saturday against alleged fraud in an April 7 presidential election, demanding a new poll be called.
The opposition candidate in the presidential vote, Miodrag Lekic, the only challenger to the declared winner, incumbent President Filip Vujanovic, has cried foul over alleged vote-rigging.
Both candidates had claimed victory in the election for the largely ceremonial post. But the electoral commission eventually ruled that Vujanovic won 51.21 percent of votes, while Lekic got support of 48.79 percent.
