2012 Montenegrin parliamentary election

Early parliamentary elections were held in Montenegro on 14 October 2012. The result was a victory for the ruling Coalition for a European Montenegro led by Milo Đukanović, which won 39 of the 81 seats. Elections in Montenegro are free, with the right of secret ballot guaranteed; because the country has a single national voting district, all votes cast at individual voting stations across the country went towards a single total. The electoral threshold was 3%, so electoral lists receiving under three percent of the total votes cast were crossed out, the MPs within the assembly were split amongst the remaining lists. Seats were distributed by the D'Hondt method, which favors leading lists above the smaller ones; the Parliament's mandate lasts four years. Several coalitions were formed or continued for the election: Poll results are listed in the table below in reverse chronological order, showing the most recent first, using the date the survey's fieldwork was done, as opposed to the date of publication.
