PODGORICA, Sep 10 (Reuters) Montenegrins went to the polls today in a general election expected to give their centre-left government a fresh mandate for their first term as an independent country.

Montenegro voted in May to end nearly a century of partnership with Serbia. Polls show the feel-good factor of that decision, buoyed by rapid United Nations acceptance and the prospect of quicker accession to the European Union, will help Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic, the main force behind the independence drive.
