Radoslav Milojičić Kena (Serbian Cyrillic: Радослав Милојичић; born 1984) is a politician in Serbia. He has served in the National Assembly of Serbia since 2016 as a member of the Democratic Party (DS).

Early life and career[edit]

Milojičić is an economist based in Smederevska Palanka. He joined the Democratic Party in 2002, has led the party organization in Smederevska Palanka since 2008, and has overseen the Democratic Party's election headquarters in local and provincial (i.e., Vojvodina) elections.[1]

Political career[edit]

Milojičić served as president of the municipality (i.e., mayor) of Smederevska Palanka from 2012 to 2016.[2] In the aftermath of the 2014 Southeast Europe floods, he announced that the municipality would sue the state agency Srbijavode for what he described as its poor response to the crisis in the area.[3]

He first sought election to the National Assembly of Serbia in the 2012 election, in which he received the 121st position on the Democratic Party's Choice for a Better Life electoral list.[4] The list won sixty-seven mandates, and he was not elected. He was promoted to the twenty-eighth position on the Democratic Party's list for the 2014 election and again missed election when the list won only nineteen mandates.[5]

Milojičić received the thirteenth position on the Democratic Party's list in the 2016 Serbian parliamentary election and was elected when the list won sixteen mandates.[6] He currently sits as an opposition member of the assembly. Milojičić is a member of the parliamentary committee on the diaspora and Serbs in the region and the security services control committee, a deputy member of the committee on Kosovo-Metohija, and a member of the parliamentary friendship groups with Argentina, China, and Cuba.[7]

In late 2016, Milojičić was selected as chair of the Democratic Party's executive committee. Shortly after this appointment, he expressed concern that the state broadcaster Radio Television of Serbia was biased toward the governing Serbian Progressive Party, saying, "Anyone who thinks and speaks differently from the SNS [Serbian Progressive Party] is reviled and scorned in media. The DS did not tolerate that in the 1990s nor in 2000. It will not tolerate it today."[8]

In March 2018, he described the Progressive Party as the most brutal political organization in Serbia since 1990 and called for a united opposition to confront it.[9]
