Kujundžić was born to a wealthy Serbian merchant family in Livno (present day Bosnia-Herzegovina), and educated in Karlowitz before going off to study law in Zagreb and Vienna. While studying in Vienna, he was Secretary of the "Zora Society," which was an organization for Serbian students. During World War I he fought for Serbian Kingdom and was wounded. After the First World War, he was active in politics, being first assigned to the Yugoslav embassy in Rome, then being appointed to Minister of Forests and Mines in 1925, before becoming Minister of Education. He collaborated with the Axis powers during the war and became the Minister of Justice in the Government of National Salvation, a collaborationist government set up by Nazi Germany following the invasion of Yugoslavia. He escaped the Soviets and Partisans prior to the liberation and fled to Austria at the end of the war, where he died in 1949.
