Biografija

Jovanović je osnovnu školu završio u Beogradu. Prvi razred srednje škole započeo je u Devetoj beogradskoj gimnaziji da bi se ubrzo prebacio u Treću ekonomsku školu. Diplomirao je dramaturgiju na Fakultetu dramskih umetnosti u Beogradu, 1998. godine. Tokom studija radio je kao novinar. Trenutno pohađa magistarske studije na odseku za filmologiju Fakulteta dramskih umetnosti u Beogradu.

 

Bio je jedan od vođaa studentskih protesta 1996/97. kada je stekao znatnu popularnost. Tih dana je navodno izvesna studentkinja Mia lansirala i bedž sa natpisom „Čedo, oženi me!“, što je Jovanović objašnjavao time da se ljudima verovatno dopada to što on priča. Sâm tvrdi da je bio hapšen i prebijan više puta od strane policije. Po okončanju protesta, sa Čedomirom Antićem i grupom tadašnjih istomišljenika osnovao je Studentski politički klub koji je podržao bojkot republičkih izbora 1997.

 

Pristupio je Demokratskoj stranci 1998. godine. U oktobru 2001. izabran je za njenog potpredsednika. Učestvovao je u izbornim kampanjama u septembru i decembru 2000. godine. Tokom kampanje nalazio se na mestu šefa izbornog štaba Demokratske stranke i Demokratske opozicije Srbije. Na republičkim izborima decembra 2000. godine, izabran je za poslanika u Skupštini Srbije, a 2001. izabran je za potpredsednika DS-a.

 

Od januara 2001. do marta 2003. godine bio je na funkciji šefa poslaničke grupe DOS, odnosno DOS - Reforma Srbije. Bio je najmlađi političar na toj funkciji u istoriji Srbije. Učestvovao je u hapšenju Slobodana Miloševića u svojstvu pregovarača u martu 2001. godine i jedan od glavnih pregovarača o njegovoj mirnoj predaji, i potom njegovog izručenja Haškom tribunalu, 28. juna iste godine.

 

U Vladi Republike Srbije formiranoj nakon smrti Zorana Đinđića, 18. marta 2003. godine postao je potpredsednik Vlade Republike Srbije zadužen za evropske integracije i koordinaciju reformi. Učestvovao je u izradi Akcionog plana i daljoj harmonizaciji odnosa Srbije i Crne Gore. Godine 2008. kandidovao se za predsednika Srbije, a na izborima je bio peti, sa 5,34% osvojenih glasova.

 

Na sednici Liberalnodemokratske partije 28. januara 2012. godine je izjavio da je „Republika Srpska genocidna tvorevina“ čime je izazvao bes medija i Organizacija porodica zarobljenih, poginulih boraca i nestalih civila Republike Srpske, koja je najavila krivičnu prijavu protiv Jovanovića. Na ovu izjavu reagovao je i kabinet predsednika RS Milorad Dodik, odakle je poručeno da lider LDP “smišljenom laži da je Republika Srpska nastala na genocidu pokušava da pripiše kolektivnu odgovornost celom narodu, koji je samo branio pravo na život”. Održao je televizijski duel 1. februara 2012. sa Miloradom Dodikom na temu: „Da li je Srpska genocidna tvorevina ili izraz volje naroda“.

ENG:

 

Čedomir "Čeda" Jovanović (Serbian Cyrillic: Чедомир "Чеда" Јовановић) (born April 13, 1971, in Belgrade) is a Serbian politician and president of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP).

 

Political career

Throughout the 3-month demonstration he also grew close to the Democratic Party (DS) and its then leader Zoran Đinđić. After the protest was over, Jovanović and several fellow university students (Čedomir Antić, Igor Žeželj, Vladimir Dobrosavljević, and Aleksandar Ćirić(Lelki)) formed an organization called Student Political Club (Studentski politički klub, SPK). At the time Jovanović described SPK as "a political organization whose goal it is to go a step further than the student protests did". SPK led a boycott campaign ahead of the 1997 parliamentary elections. However, SPK didn't last long and its almost entire membership joined the DS party in 1998 (Dobrosavljević was the only one who joined the DSS party). Now an official DS member, Jovanović quickly rose up the party ladder, eventually becoming its vice-president in 2001.

 

He was elected to the Serbian Parliament in the December 23, 2000, parliamentary elections, on the list of the Democratic Opposition of Serbia (DOS), and also held the post of DOS' parliamentary caucus leader until 2003. At only 29, he was the youngest person ever in Serbian politics to hold such a position. In March 2003, following the assassination of Prime Minister Zoran Đinđić, Jovanović advanced to the position of Deputy Prime Minister in the government of the new PM Zoran Živković. It has been alleged that during his mandate as Member of Parliament, in addition to his regular duties, Jovanović assumed the role of Prime Minister Đinđić's government liaison - dealing with, and meeting individuals connected to Serbian organized crime circles.

 

Dissatisfied with the party's new direction under the leadership of Boris Tadić, Jovanović criticized him publicly, most notably for his policy of political cohabitation with Prime Minister Vojislav Koštunica's government. Being a fierce Koštunica opponent, Jovanović felt that the Democratic Party should actively seek ways to bring down his government, especially when Boris Tadić was elected President of the Republic in June 2004. A couple of months after Tadić's inauguration, Jovanović wrote his party colleague an open public letter on a per tu basis criticizing his political choices. Tadić never even acknowledged the letter publicly until he was directly asked about it during an interview on a weekly political TV talk show Utisak nedelje. He admitted that he had not really bothered to read it and added: "When someone writes a letter, supposedly to me, by first making sure it gets published in the papers, then that's really not a letter but a political bid".

 

Finally, on November 5, 2005, Jovanović and his supporters founded the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) to much fanfare, and Jovanović was elected as its first president at the age of 34. The first parliamentary elections Jovanović led his party in were held in January 2007. LDP's electoral list also featured several minority parties and Nenad Čanak's League of Vojvodina's Socialdemocrats (LSV). With an aggressive "Od nas zavisi" campaign, he was hoping to ensure enough votes for LDP to become a significant factor when it comes to forming the ruling coalition. However, LDP received about 5-6% of the total vote, barely clearing the 5% threshold required to enter the parliament.

 

Čedomir Jovanović was a candidate at the 2008 Serbian Presidential elections held in January. He was running under the slogan "Život je zakon!" (eng. "Life Rules") while emphasizing his determination to bring down every person inside or outside the Serbian government who "oppose the idea of providing a better life for the people of Serbia". Once again, Jovanović has directly accused Miroslav Mišković, a Serbian tycoon, of being one of the most responsible persons for the underdevelopment of Serbia in the recent years.

 

In March 2011, during a parliamentary session about the 2011 Libyan civil war, Jovanović commented Serbian Foreign minister Vuk Jeremić visits of Africa that "instead of going to the cannibals in Africa, should react to the plight of the civilians in Libya". The remark provoked strong protests from diplomats from the African continent.
