Positive Montenegro (Montenegrin: Pozitivna Crna Gora/Позитивна Црна Гора) is a centre-left political party in Montenegro. The party was founded in May 2012 and is led by the former ecological activist Darko Pajović.
In the 2012 parliamentary elections, PCG became an opposition parliamentary party, winning 8.4% of popular vote, and 7 seats in Parliament. However, during the mandate 4 MPs have left PCG due to internal disagreements caused by the party's collaboration with the government, one defecting to DEMOS, two to URA, and one remaining as independent.
On 27 January 2015, despite being an opposition party, PCG provided the ruling DPS with 3 votes necessary to win the government confidence vote, after the junior partner SDP left the government due to allegations of electoral fraud and political corruption, therefore forming a new ruling majority. Following this vote, national media and other opposition parties accused the party for deceiving and betraying its voters in order to save Prime Minister Đukanović.
