  20  Sources close to the ruling Montenegrin DPS party say that an
      informal meeting of the Government was held in Podgorica on
      Wednesday at which members agreed to call for a vote of confidence
      in the Djukanovic government at Thursday's meeting of the

  25  The Thursday meeting is the first, since Mr Djukanovic resigned as
      vice-president of the party after a 16 hour meeting on Monday.

      It is expected that Mr Djukanovic will not accede to President
      Momir Bulatovic's demand that he dismiss his closest associates
      from their posts.

  30  Observers believe that the most likely outcome of Thursday's
      meeting of the parliament is that Deputy Prime Minister Slavko
      Drljevic, who is on Mr Bulatovic's hit list will call for a vote
      of confidence in the Djukanovic government. The alternative is
      that the entire government would resign.

  35  The president of the opposition People's Party, Novak Kilibarda on
      Wednesday said that President Bulatovic did not connect his
      destiny with the Federation, but with Serbian President Slobodan
      Milosevic. He stressed that Mr Bulatovic sees only two solutions,
      a federal state with Slobodan Milosevic or no federal state at
  40  all. Mr Kilibarda added that the president cannot conceive of the
      existence of a democratic federal state.


      The Democratic Party of Serbia on Wednesday said that the
      government's proposed privatisation law did not pay attention to
  45  the most important aspect, the fact that companies must keep
      working while privatisation happens. Professor Jovan Rankovic,
      author of the party's privatisation draft said that if Serbian
      companies were sold according to the government proposal, then
      more than 70% of public property would be given away as a gift,
  50  and the state would not earn 25 billion DEM which is necessary for
      the reconstruction of the economy.


      The next round table between Serbs and Albanians from Kosovo will
      begin in New York on April 7.

  55  The three day session has been convened by the Project for Ethnic
      Relations, an American non-government organisation. Serbia will be
      represented by the Zajedno leaders Vuk Draskovic and Vesna Pesic,
      as well as other opposition leaders and two members of the
      Socialist Party of Serbia.

  60  The Albanians delegation will include President of the
      Parliamentary Party of Kosovo, Adem Demaci, and the vice
      presidents of the Democratic Union of Kosovo, Fehmi Agani, Hidajet
      Hiseni and Edita Tahiri.


  65  The election campaing officially began on Wednesday in Eastern
      Slavonia in line with the decision of the UN Transitional
      Administrator. The campaign will continue until April 11.
