Saša Radulović

Statement

Saša Radulović is leader of the strongest opposition party in the Serbian Parliament, Dosta je bilo ("Enough is Enough"). He spent several years living in the United States, where he ran a successful startup business, and returned to Belgrade in 2005. He became a prominent blogger, a bankruptcy trustee and portfolio manager.

In 2013, he was appointed as Minister of Economy, with no party affiliation, during a reshuffle of the cabinet of Prime Minister Ivica Dačić, in which Aleksandar Vučić was the first vice-PM. His tenure lasted only a few months before he resigned from the post, citing a lack of political will for the implementation of necessary reforms.

Since then, he has become an outspoken critic of Vučić's policies and rose to prominence in the 2016 election campaign. He entered these presidential elections in order to "produce a higher turnout", which he says can overthrow Vučić.

He strongly opposes what he calls the "partocracy" - the fact that, in his view, the whole of political and social life in Serbia is dictated by the political parties - and calls for a reduction of the number of employees in the public sector and state-owned companies.

Radulović is against Serbia joining NATO, but says that Serbia should cooperate with the Alliance in programs like the "Partnership for Peace". His party is pro-European but stops short of saying that they want to join the European Union whatever it takes. They recommend a one-year "suspension" of the European integration process in order to reach a consensus in Serbia about joining. He usually argues for co-operation with the Russian Federation.
