Public opinion poll shows a strong support for the EU in Montenegro

Montenegro

Montenegro’s membership of the European Union continues to be supported by the great majority of citizens, who have a positive attitude towards the community and would vote in a potential referendum for Montenegro to become its next Member State. This was once again confirmed by a public opinion poll conducted by the DeFacto Consultancy for the European Union and the Government of Montenegro in May. They surveyed citizens on attitudes to EU integration and the EU accession process, polling a representative sample of 1,008 respondents across the country.

 

The strong support for the European idea, translated into figures, shows that 76% of citizens have a positive attitude towards the European Union, and an almost equal number (74.6%) support Montenegro’s accession to the European Union. If a referendum were held tomorrow, almost 90% of voters would go to the polls, of which over four fifths, or 83.5%, would vote for Montenegro to join the European Union.

 

The European Union was recognised by 43% of citizens as the biggest foreign donor in Montenegro, and 39% say that the EU has shown the greatest solidarity with Montenegro in the fight against COVID-19.
