The Justice and Reconciliation Party (Bosnian: Stranka pravde i pomirenja; Serbian: Странка правде и помирења), formerly known as the Bosniak Democratic Union of Sandžak (Bosnian: Bošnjačka demokratska zajednica Sandžaka; Serbian: Бошњачка демократска заједница Санџака), is a political party of the Bosniak ethnic minority concentrated in the Sandžak region in southwestern Serbia.

History[edit]

It contested the 2014 parliamentary elections as part of a joint list with the Liberal Democratic Party and Social Democratic Union, but the alliance received only 3.4% of the vote, failing to win a seat.[1]

In the 2016 parliamentary elections it ran alone, winning two seats.[2]

The party officially changed its name from the Bosniak Democratic Union of Sandžak to the Justice and Reconciliation Party on December 23, 2017.[3] Jahja Fehratović had led the party from its formation until this time; following the name change, Muamer Zukorlić was recognized as leader.
