56 pct of Montenegrin citizens for NATO membership

Fifty-six percent of Montenegrin citizens would opt for NATO membership in a referendum on this matter, while 44% would be against, according to a survey by Ipsos Strategic Marketing

The survey was conducted on October 8-16, covering 1,015 adult citizens. Had the referendum been held at that time, 75% of citizens would have taken part in it, Pobjeda daily said on Saturday.

One in four Montenegrins was either undecided on NATO membership or had an explicitly negative view of voting in such a referendum, Marko Uljarevic of Ipsos said.
