Social Democrats of Montenegro (Montenegrin: Socijaldemokrate Crne Gore), also known as SD, is a political party in Montenegro formed in 2015 by a split faction of SDP that advocated unconditional support for the ruling DPS and its leader Milo Đukanović instead of pursuing an independent political course.

History

The party was founded in July 2015[2] after the split between two Social Democratic Party (SDP) vice-presidents Vujica Lazović and Ivan Brajović, and the party leader Ranko Krivokapić.[3][4] The faction which advocated unconditional support for the ruling DPS and its neoliberal economic policies went on to form a new party – SD, remaining in government despite never before having contested parliamentary elections. Ivan Brajović, Minister of Transport and Maritime Affairs in Government of Montenegro at the time, was chosen as the first president of the new party. It currently has two representatives in the Parliament of Montenegro, elected in 2016.
