Milo Đukanović (Montenegrin Cyrillic: Мило Ђукановић, pronounced [ˈmilɔ ˈdʑukanɔʋitɕ] ( listen); born 15 February 1962) is the former President and Prime Minister of Montenegro.

Đukanović served three consecutive terms as Prime Minister from 1991 to 1998 (1991–1993, 1993–1996, and 1996–1998); he was then President of Montenegro from 1998 to 2002 and Prime Minister again from 2003 to 2006. Although he chose to step down in late 2006, he returned to office as Prime Minister in February 2008. His coalition won the 2009 early election with an absolute majority, securing him a sixth term in office. He stepped down as the Prime minister in December 2010.[1] Đukanović is also the long-term President of the Democratic Party of Socialists of Montenegro, originally the Montenegrin branch of the Yugoslavian Communist Party, governing Montenegro ever since the introduction of multiparty politics. He is controversial for his role in the 1990s and for his continuously high level of influence in Montenegrin political life.

When Đukanović emerged on the political scene as a youngster, he was a close ally of Slobodan Milošević.[2] In 1996, however, he turned against Milošević, abandoning the traditional joint Serbian and Montenegrin vision in favour of a sovereignist ideology. He oversaw the conversion of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia into the State Union of Serbia and Montenegro and Montenegro's increasing separation from Serbia, culminating in the victory at the 2006 independence referendum.
