The first elections in the newly independent Republic of Montenegro took place on September 10 2006, with Prime Minister Milo Đukanović claiming absolute victory for his centre left, pro-European Union party the next day. Đukanović's Coalition for European Montenegro, based around the Democratic Party of Socialists, won 41 seats in the 81 seat parliament with the vote near fully counted. The pro-Serbian blocs together received 23 seats (11 for the Socialist People's Party and 12 for the Serbian List).

As rival groups conceded defeat, the re-elected Prime Minister stated that

"These elections showed that Montenegro is stable and firm on its road to Europe." [1]

The new Movement for Changes, standing on a pro-EU, anti-corruption and economic improvement platform, took 11 seats. Other seats were won by parties representing ethnic minorities, mainly Albanian.
