Mirko Jovi? (Serbian Cyrillic? ; born 13 August 1959 in Zemun) is a Serbian politician who stood for president of Serbia in the 2004 Serbian presidential election for the Radical Party of People, Serbia, Diaspora and European Bloc. He lives in Belgrade.
Together with Vuk Dra?kovi? and Vojislav ?e?elj, Jovi? founded the Serbian National Renewal party (SNO) in 1989. However, the trio soon found themselves at political crossroads and their party disintegrated into three pieces by 1990. Jovi? kept the SNO, ?e?elj formed the Serbian Radical Party and Dra?kovi? formed the Serbian Renewal Movement. The unpopularity of the Jovi?'s nationalist agenda was most markedly shown in Vojvodina, his home province.
This animosity towards Serbian National Renewal ideology culminated in spontaneous mass beating of Jovi? and the leadership of the party during the party meeting in city of Vrbas in 1991.
He was a volunteer soldier in the Bosnian War, where he was the leader of the White Eagles militia and called for "'a Christian, Orthodox Serbia with no Muslims and no unbelievers". In the 2004 Serbian presidential election he won 5,546 votes or 0.18% of the votes.
