Political careerEdit

SerbiaEdit

In April 2013, at the founding conference, he was elected vice president of the New Party. On 5 October 2013, on the proposal of the party president Zoran Živković, he was elected party deputy president. At 2014 parliamentary election he became one of two party parliamentary representatives together with party leader Živković. Even though he was the most active MP in the 10th assembly of Serbian parliament, he was not re-elected at 2016 parliamentary election.[3]

MontenegroEdit

In 2017 he decided to leave the party and Belgrade, Serbia and move back to his native country, Montenegro,[4] where he assumed the position of political adviser in the newly formed liberal political party the Montenegrin. At the party second congress on 27 January 2018 he was elected new President of the party.[5] During his leadership the party was in close relations with opposition Democratic Montenegro (Democrats), which sparked criticism of part of party members. He was part of 2019 Montenegrin anti-corruption protests. On 28 January 2020 at the height of the political crisis in Montenegro, Pavićević announced he was leaving the party, following ideological disagreements with party membership. After leaving the party, he continues to work closely with the Democratic Montenegro and its leader Aleksa Bečić.[6]
