Montenegro is free country - Freedom House survey.

By bne IntelliNews January 17, 2013
Montenegro has been rated as a free country in the latest annual survey of US independent watchdog organization Freedom House. The Freedom in the World 2013 survey measures freedom along two broad categories - political rights and civil liberties. The countries are assigned numerical ratings in both categories. The values of the ratings are in the range from 1 (most free) to 7 (least free). Montenegro's political rights and civil liberties ratings have values of 3 and 2 respectively, with no changes from last year. The two ratings are averaged to obtain the so called freedom rating, which determines the respective country's overall status - Free (1.0 to 2.5), Partly Free (3.0 to 5.0), or Not Free (5.5 to 7.0). Other SEE countries, classified as free, include Bulgaria, Croatia, Serbia and Slovenia. Countries, classified as partly free, include Albania, Bosnia, Kosovo and Macedonia.
