Ivo Miro Jović[pronunciation?] (born 15 July 1950) is a Bosnian politician and former Croat member of Bosnia and Herzegovina's tripartite Presidency, appointed to the post in Parliament on 9 May 2005 following the sacking of Dragan Čović by the High Representative on charges of corruption. He served until 6 November 2006.[citation needed]

After he had graduated as a history teacher from the University of Sarajevo, Jović worked as a teacher in Ilijaš and Kiseljak. He became active in politics in 1997, as the Croatian Democratic Union had proposed him for a government position in the Central Bosnia Canton. In 1999, Jović entered the federal government, as Vice Minister of Culture, where he remained until 2001.[citation needed]

Following the general elections of 2002, Jović was elected as a representative for his party in the House of Representatives of the Parliament of Bosnia and Herzegovina. His most recent foreign appearance was at the 2005 World Summit in New York. On 1 October 2006, he was defeated in race for the Croat member of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina.[citation needed]

Jović is fluent in German, married and father of three children.
