Saša Vučinić’ (Serbian Cyrillic: Саша Вучинић; born 7 October 1973) is a politician in Serbia. He was a member of the Assembly of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia from 2000 to 2003, a member of the Assembly of Serbia and Montenegro from 2003 to 2004, and the mayor of Subotica from 2004 to 2008. Vučinić is a member of the Democratic Party (Demokratska stranka, DS).
Vučinić was born in Istok, in what was then the Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo in the Socialist Republic of Serbia, Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. He later moved to Subotica in Vojvodina and trained as an electrical energy technician. He co-founded the youth magazine Talas in 1998 and worked with CITY Radio and the television station Info Kanal in 1998–99.
The Democratic Party contested the 2000 Yugoslavian parliamentary election as part of the Democratic Opposition of Serbia (Demokratska opozicija Srbije, DOS), a broad and ideologically diverse coalition of parties opposed to Slobodan Milošević‘s administration. Vučinić appeared in the second position on the DOS’s electoral list for the Subotica division and was given a mandate when the DOS won two of the area’s three seats. (For this election, half of the mandates were awarded to candidates on successful lists in numerical order, while the other half were awarded to candidates at the discretion of the sponsoring parties or coalitions. Vučinić did not receive an automatic mandate but was included in the DOS delegation all the same.) Milošević was defeated in the concurrent Yugoslavian presidential election, an event that prompted large-scale political changes in both Serbia and Yugoslavia. Vučinić served as a supporter of Yugoslavia’s new administration and was a member of the assembly committee on security and defence.
The Federal Republic of Yugoslavia was reconstituted as the State Union of Serbia and Montenegro in March 2003, and the initial membership of the new federal parliament was chosen by indirect election from the republican parliaments of Serbia and Montenegro. By virtue of their standing in the Serbian parliament, the DS and aligned parties had the right to appoint thirty-seven members; Vučinić was included in his party’s delegation. He was not re-appointed in 2004
