Branislav Mihajlović (Serbian Cyrillic: Бранислав Михајловић; born 1953) is a politician in Serbia. He has served in the National Assembly of Serbia since 2016 as a member of the anti-establishment and reformist It's Enough – Restart association, better known in English by the name "Enough Is Enough." In April 2018, he succeeded Saša Radulović as the leader of the association.

Private career[edit]

Born into a mining family,[1] Mihajlović has a doctorate in technical science and worked for thirty-nine years at RTB Bor, where he was a manager and oversaw planning and production analysis. He was dismissed from the company in 2015 after making a series of critical posts about its ownership on social media; after receiving a notice of termination, he sarcastically thanked his former employers for demonstrating that he and they had nothing in common.[2] The It's Enough – Restart group charged that the company targeted Mihajlović on political grounds.[3] Mihajlović continues to reside in Bor.[4]

Political career[edit]

Mihajlović received the sixth position on the It's enough – Restart electoral list in the 2016 parliamentary election and was elected when the list won sixteen mandates.[5] The election was won by the Serbian Progressive Party and its allies, and Mihajlović serves as a member of the opposition. He is a member of the assembly committee on the economy, regional development, trade, tourism, and energy; a deputy member of the security services control committee; a deputy member of Serbia's delegation to the South-East European Cooperation Process Parliamentary Assembly; and a member of the parliamentary friendship groups with Iran and Kazakhstan.[6]

Mihajlović was chosen as the leader of It's Enough – Restart on April 21, 2018, after the resignation of Saša Radulović. He won the contest without opposition; Tatjana Macura, the only other candidate, had previously withdrawn.[7]
