Vojislav Mihailović (born September 3, 1951 in Belgrade, SFR Yugoslavia, present-day Serbia) is a Serbian politician, former Mayor of Belgrade and currently a co-president of the Serbian Democratic Renewal Movement.

Mihailović is a grandson of Chetniks leader Draža Mihailović and was named after his father's brother who had died somewhere around Foča in 1943 while fighting for Chetniks. He was the Mayor of Belgrade between January 22, 1999 and October 5, 2000, as a member of Serbian Renewal Movement (SPO), and was the party's candidate for the president of Federal Republic of Yugoslavia at the 2000 presidential elections, where he has earned 2.95% of votes. In 2005, he left SPO following disagreements with the party's leader Vuk Drašković, and has consequently formed Serbian Democratic Renewal Movement (SDPO), together with several other former members of SPO. He is now a co-president of SDPO, together with Mayor of Kragujevac, Veroljub Stevanović.

Mihailović is married and a father of two. In 2006 he launched a motion to the High Court in Belgrade to politically rehabilitate his grandfather Draža Mihailović.[1]
