Different Aspects about the Position of Albanians in Montenegro


  • Veton Zejnullahi


Albanians of Montenegro as an integral and indivisible part of the Albanian nation in its land in Montenegro constitute 4. 91% of the total population of the state. The Albanian population in Montenegro is characterized by a powerful diaspora primarily located in the United States of America, and after the war in Kosovo many Albanian citizens from there settled in Kosovo looking for a better life. Although a small percentage in number compared with other nations, Albanians in Montenegro have played an important role in political life and for the future of the state. We must ascertain role and the importance of the Albanian vote in the referendum organized for secession of Montenegro from the State Union of Serbia, which was decisive in achieving the final result in favor of independence. Albanians were the first nation who formed their own political parties, thus supporting Montenegro to become a multiparty state. During the war for the liberation of Kosovo, Albanians in Montenegro played a tremendous role ranging from financing, direct participation in the war, especially in accommodating, hospitality of Kosovo Albanian IDPs in their private home, public buildings, and mosques. The same roles played also the Bosnians population living in Montenegro. Albanian political organization starts with political pluralism and there currently operate several political parties but also the National Council of Albanians.
