The Democratic Serb Party (Serbian: Демократска српска странка, Demokratska srpska stranka) or DSS is a political party in Montenegro. It was formed in 2003 following a split from the Serb People's Party led by Božidar Bojović, who was the first party president, and Ranko Kadić, first vice president and his subsequent successor.[1] At the legislative elections held in March 2009, DSS formed a pre-election coalition sith People's Party, but the coalition failed to gain parliamentatry status, winning 2,9% of the votes, just below the 3% electoral threshold. At the next election DSS participated in a nationalist coalition Serb National Alliance along with Party of Serb Radicals and Serb National Alliance, which won only 0,85% of votes.

On 31 August 2016, the party joined the right-wing conservative opposition alliance Democratic Front.[2]
