Montenegro's parliament on Wednesday approved Igor Luksic to serve as prime minister. Luksic takes over from the Balkans' longest-serving leader, Milo Djukanovic, who resigned last week after more than 20 years on the country's political scene.

REUTERS - Montenegro's parliament approved Igor Luksic as the new prime minister on Wednesday to replace Milo Djukanovic, who resigned last week after leading the Balkan nation for more than two decades.

"All of us, the government, parliament, local authorities and the society must demonstrate determination and readiness to use knowledge and capabilities ... toward full European integration," Luksic told deputies.
 
Luksic, who previously served as the finance minister, said that Milorad Katnic will replace him in that post. There will also be further ministerial appointments.
 
Djukanovic stepped down in a move that may smooth Montenegro's bid for European Union membership.
