      Members of the Montenegrin government met in Podgorica on Thursday
      morning. Independent Serbian news agency BETA quotes sources close
      to Montenegrin Government as saying that Prime Minister Djukanovic
  25  and his close associates were unlikely to accept the Montenegrin
      ruling party's earlier demand for a government reshuffle.

      BETA quotes the same sources as saying that Mr. Djukanovic would
      not resign on Thursday.

      The hitherto unheard of 'Democratic Movement of Montenegro' has
  30  announced ``non-partisan rally in support of Montenegro and
      Yugoslavia'' on Friday in support Prime Minister Djukanovic and
      Parliamentary Speaker Svetozar Marovic.


      The Independent Association of Pensioners of Serbia is to start a
  35  protest this spring at the Serbian Government's default on state
      pensions. The Association accuses the government of turning a
      blind eye to the desperate plight of 1000s of pensioners
      throughout the country.

      The Association's President Predrag Zdravkovic explained that if
  40  the Association's missing funds from the pension fund were not
      returned then pensioners would demand co-ownership of the assets
      the missing money had been invested in.


      Leader of the Serbian Renewal Movement (SPO) Vuk Draskovic
  45  demanded on Thursday that Belgrade City Council revise the city
      budget adopted by the council on Wednesday. Mr. Draskovic demanded
      that the local budget for city officials and entertainment be
      reduced and that the funds allocated to finance the Association of
      Free Cities be cancelled. He said that the money for the
  50  Association should be provided by the Zajedno parties themselves
      rather than by Belgrade citizens, BETA reported on Thursday.


      Assistant Serbian Information Minister Natasa Djuric told the
      publicity and information committee of the Socialist Party of
  55  Serbia that the second draft of the new law on information would
      soon be ready, and that it would take into account the many
      suggestions on the first draft made by the public.


      The cabinet of Momcilo Krajisnik, Republika Srpska's (RS)
  60  representative on the Bosnian Presidency, issued a statement on
      Thrusday denying reports in the media that there was a split in
      the RS leadership. The statement rejected allegations that Mr.
      Krajisnik had made a bid for total power in the RS. The statement
      stressed that Mr. Krajisnik continued to perform those duties he
  65  had assumed after his election in accordance with the RS
      leadership. The statement warned that ``rumours about an alleged
      split in the RS leaderhip'' had been put about in an attempt to
      destabilize the RS and rob its citizens of all they had gained in
      their 5-year struggle.
