The Montenegro Assembly, with the votes of the governing coalition, have adopted the 2013 budget worth EUR 1.5 billion, which will not include the existing EUR 5 tax on mobile phone numbers, reports Vijesti. An alternative government proposal of a 7 percent tax on mobile phones was dropped by Finance Minister Radoje Zugic, after it failed to obtain a parliamentary majority. As a result, mobile phone users in Montenegro will face no additional charges from 2014.
