The Justice and Reconciliation Party (Bosnian: Stranka pravde i pomirenja; Serbian: Странка правде и помирења; abbr. СПП or SPP), formerly known as the Bosniak Democratic Union of Sandžak (Bosnian: Bošnjačka demokratska zajednica Sandžaka; Serbian: Бошњачка демократска заједница Санџака; abbr. БДЗС or BDZS), is a political party in Serbia, representing the Bosniak ethnic minority concentrated in the Sandžak region of Serbia and Montenegro.

History

It contested the 2014 parliamentary elections as part of a joint list with the centrist Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and centre-left Social Democratic Union (SDU), but the alliance received only 3.4% of the vote, failing to win a seat.[6]

In the 2016 parliamentary elections it ran alone, winning two seats.[7] The party officially changed its name from the Bosniak Democratic Union of Sandžak to the Justice and Reconciliation Party on December 23, 2017.[8] Jahja Fehratović had led the party from its formation until this time; following the name change, Muamer Zukorlić was recognized as leader of the reorganized party.
