The Party of Serbian Unity (Serbian: Странка Српског Јединства, CCJ / Stranka Srpskog Jedinstva, SSJ) was a nationalist political party in Serbia, founded by Željko Ražnatović "Arkan".[1]

It is today known as the Council of Serbian Untiy, restored after seceding from the Serbian Radical Party.

The key goals of the party were:

Following the assassination of Željko Ražnatović Arkan in 2000, Borislav Pelević became president of the party. At the last legislative elction in 2003, the SSJ was a part of the For National Unity alliance, which failed to receive any seats. The SSJ merged into the Serbian Radical Party in 2007.[1]

In 2013, the party was re-founded as the Council of Serbian Unity by Pelević.[2]The new party took part in the 2014 parliamentary election as part of the Patriotic Front coalition, but failed to reach the threshold.
