History

Foundation

Democratic Party of Serbia (DSS) was founded when a wing of the Democratic Party (DS) that supported the DS's involvement in DEPOS ("Democratic Movement of Serbia") parliamentary fraction decided to leave the party and form a new one in the summer of 1992.

The split within DS was initiated much earlier, having to do with more than just day-to-day political direction. Soon after the bloody anti-Milošević demonstrations of March 9, 1991, significant differences surfaced within DS ranks in regards to the national question in former Yugoslavia. The DS' wing that eventually left to form DSS thought the party needed to take a clear stance on the national question in the former Yugoslavia especially as it relates to the position of Serbs in it. In the atmosphere of what they viewed to be grave manipulation of Serbian national interests by Slobodan Milošević's regime, this wing approached the Serbian position in Yugoslavia neither as question of political democracy nor economic equality but as larger question of Serbian national survival.

The extent of their involvement in such discussion went as far as noting that Serbian nation as the most populous one within the then still existing SFR Yugoslavia has a special responsibility for that country's survival.
