Velimir Vukićević was a middle school teacher by profession. Elected to Serbian National Assembly. He was a minister in several of the governments of Nikola Pašić but as one of the chief "Palace Radicals" his role was help Alexander, the king, to clip Pašić's wings.
His term was marked by an exceptional lack of ethnic tension in Croatia but as the cause was the political alliance of the leading Croat politician Stjepan Radić and the leading Croatian Serb politician Svetozar Pribićević in a united opposition to the government, this was a very unwelcome development for the government. Vukićević put pressure on papers dependent on government subsidy to launch a violent campaign against the opposition. Vukicevic resigned shortly after violence among members of Parliament in which three Croatian members of Parliament were killed.
