Maksim Vu?ini? (Serbian Cyrillic: ?; born 11 July 1994) is a Montenegrin electrical engineer and politician, who is currently a Member of the Parliament of Montenegro as well as the President of the Parliametary Commission for Monitoring the Privatization Process. He is the president of the minor left-populist and socially conservative Workers' Party, since 2019.
After graduating from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the University of Montenegro, he decided to enter politics in the in mid-2010s, joining the right-wing New Serb Democracy (NSD) and the opposition Democratic Front (DF) alliance, in which he served as a member of local board in his hometown Nik?i?.
At that time, his father Janko Vu?ini? was an independent MP within the parliamentary club of the DF. In 2015, Janko Vu?ini? founded the socialist and left-populist Workers' Party (RP), continuing his activity within a coalition with the DF. In March 2019, Workers' Party left the coalition with Democratic Front.
In December 2019 he succeeded his father, as the president of the Worker's Party after his sudden death in October. After he took the lead in the RP, the party increasingly employed a more significant cultural and socially conservative discourse, supporting 2019-2020 Clerical protests in Montenegro and Serbian Orthodox Church rights in Montenegro, due to the 2020 Montenegrin political crisis, and an open conflict between the Serbian Orthodox Church in Montenegro and the DPS-led Government of Montenegro, following the adoption of the disputed law on the status of religious communities in the country. Vu?ini? claims that if workers in the private sector are exposed to exploitation and exploitation to the maximum of psychophysical possibilities, no less exposed to pressure are also workers in the public sector, by "party soldiers". He also criticized Montenegrin government for legalizing same-sex civil partnerships by saying that this decision is a continuation of the "path of hell". His party will participate in the 2020 Montenegrin Parliamentary elections as a part of the Democratic Front-led For the Future of Montenegro coalition, Maksim Vu?ini? hold the twenty-seventh place on common electoral list.
