Parliamentary elections were held in Montenegro on 31 October 1907.[1]

Background

The elections were boycotted by the People's Party (The Club members), which had complained of intimidation and claimed that they had been portrayed as hostile to Prince Nicholas.[2] The offices of the People's Party's journal in Nikšić was wrecked on two occasions, whilst a café known to be a meeting place of People's Party members was also attacked.[2] The newly-formed royalist True People's Party (The Rightists) were supported by the royal court and the army.[2]

Aftermath

The newly elected National Assembly of Montenegro (parliament) met for the first time on 21 November 1907.[1] Following the elections, 150 members of the boycotting People's Party (NS) were arrested for alleged treason.[3]
