Montenegro holding presidential vote
Montenegrins started voting for a president on Sunday in an election that amounts to a popularity test for the ruling Democratic Party of Socialists, which has held all positions of power for almost two decades.

Polls show incumbent Filip Vujanovic, an ally of popular Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic, could clinch the largely ceremonial post in the first round.

Polls opened at 8 a.m. (4 a.m. EDT) and close at 9 p.m.

About 490,000 people in the small Adriatic state are entitled to vote.
