Montenegrin public broadcaster RTCG has confirmed today that they will not be taking part in Eurovision 2011 due to financial reasons. Earlier this month, the station announced that they applied for a spot in the contest, although participation was very unlikely.
RTCG does not possess the necessary resources to fund their Eurovision 2011 participation. Back on December 4th, the broadcaster announced that should they find a suitable candidate, the singer would have to manage to find sponsors in order to be in Düsseldorf in May. It seems this has not happened either.
The official deadline to withdraw a country's participation without penalty is December 25th. Shortly after, we will know the final list of countries to take part in Eurovision 2011.
