Zoran Žižić (Cyrillic: Зоран Жижић; 4 March 1951 – 4 January 2013) was a Montenegrin politician.

Žižić was born in Titograd, Montenegro, Federal People's Republic of Yugoslavia. A member of the Socialist People's Party of Montenegro, he became Prime Minister of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia on 4 November 2000 shortly after the fall of Slobodan Milošević, when his colleague Momir Bulatović's cabinet collapsed.

Žižić resigned on 29 June 2001, after 8 months in office, in protest over the extradition of Milošević to the ICTY and left the position on 24 July 2001 when a new cabinet was formed after the 2001 Montenegrin parliamentary election, led by another of his colleagues, Dragiša Pešić. In protest at the political changes, Žižić left SNP CG.

Later Work[edit]

Žižić was the president of the Democratic Party of Unity, within the Serb List. He was the leader from 2003 to 2006 of the Movement for European State Serbia and Montenegro. On 4 January 2013, Žižić died aged 61, in Podgorica.
