Montenegrin presidential election, February 2003

politics and government of
Early presidential elections were held in the Republic of Montenegro on 9 February 2003, after the December 2002 elections had been declared invalid due to insufficient voter turnout. Although Filip Vujanović won the election with 85% of the vote, turnout was less than the required 50%, so the election was declared invalid. Fresh elections were called for May 2003, when the turnout rule was abolished.
The low turnout was caused by an opposition boycott, voters being disillusioned with politics, and poor weather conditions on polling day which resulted in 80 polling stations in mountainous areas being closed due to snow.
