Zoran Đinđić (1 August 1952 – 12 March 2003) was a Serbian politician who was Prime Minister of Serbia from 2001 until his assassination in March 2003. He was the Mayor of Belgrade in 1997, and long-time opposition politician and a doctor in philosophy.

Đinđić was one of the original thirteen restorers of the modern day Serbian Democratic Party,[1] becoming its president in 1994.[2] During the 1990s, he was one of the co-leaders of the opposition to the administration of Slobodan Milošević, and became the Prime Minister of Serbia in 2001 after the overthrow of Milošević. As Prime Minister, he advocated pro-democratic reforms and the accession of Serbia to the European Union.[3]
