President of the League of Communists of Serbia

The Secretary of the Central Committee of the League of Communists of Serbia (Serbo-Croatian: Sekretar Centralnog komiteta Saveza komunista Srbije) was the head of the League of Communists of Serbia, heading the Central Committee of the Party. The holder of the office was, for a significant period, the de facto most influential politician in the Socialist Republic of Serbia, a constituent republic of Yugoslavia. The official name of the office was changed in May 1982 from "Secretary of the Central Committee" to President of the Presidency of the Central Committee of the League of Communists of Serbia (Predsednik Predsedništva Centralnog komiteta Saveza komunista Srbije).

The League of Communists of Serbia was also an organization subordinate to the federal-level League of Communists of Yugoslavia. Between 1941 and September 1952, the former was named the Communist Party of Serbia (being part of the larger Communist Party of Yugoslavia), until both parties were renamed "League of Communists" in 1952.
