BackgroundEdit

After Montenegro became part Yugoslavia following World War I, the Montenegrin parliament was abolished. During World War II, a Montenegrin legislature was revived when the State Anti-fascist Council for the National Liberation of Montenegro and Boka was established. This became the Montenegrin Anti-Fascist Assembly of National Liberation (CASNO) in 1944.

On 15 April 1945 the CASNO was renamed the Montenegrin National Assembly, before it became the National Assembly on 15 February 1946.[2]

AftermathEdit

After adopting the new constitution of the People's Republic of Montenegro, the Assembly was converted into a National Assembly, which served out the parliamentary term until the 1950.[1]

Petar Komnenić was the President of the Assembly until 1949, when he was replaced by Đuro Čagorović.[1]
