Civic Movement United Reform Action (Montenegrin: Građanski Pokret Ujedinjena reformska akcija/Грађански покрет Уједињена реформска акција, GP URA), commonly known as United Reform Action (Ujedinjena reformska akcija/Уједињена реформска акција) or simply URA is a socially liberal[1] and progressive political party in Montenegro. URA was founded in March 2015[2] by Žarko Rakčević, a civil engineer and former member and president of Social Democratic Party, which he left in 2001. Since April 2017, URA is led by Dritan Abazović who is also serving as one of the two URA MPs in the Parliament of Montenegro.

History

Founded in 2015, before the 2016 parliamentary election URA had two representatives in the Parliament of Montenegro: Dritan Abazović and Miloš Konatar, both elected in 2012 from the electoral list of Positive Montenegro.

In September 2016, URA decided to enter the Key Coalition with Demos and SNP in order to participate at the forthcoming parliamentary election.[3] The Key Coalition won 11.05% of votes and 9 seats, two of them being won by URA candidates.
