Filip Vujanović

Filip Vujanović (Serbian Cyrillic: Филип Вујановић) (born September 1, 1954, Belgrade, Yugoslavia) is a Montenegrin politician who, since 2003, has served as the President of Montenegro. He is the first President of Montenegro since it split ties with Serbia and became an independent nation in June 2006. He claimed a landslide victory in the Montenegrin presidential election held on April 6, 2008.

From 21 May 2008 he is serving his second presidential term.

Early life and career
Born and raised in Belgrade, Vujanović graduated from the University of Belgrade's Law School. Between 1978 and 1981 he worked in one of the city's Municipal Courts, and later also as an assistant at the Belgrade District Court.

In 1981, aged 27, he moved to Titograd. Following a short stint as secretary at Titograd's District Court, he worked as a lawyer until entering politics in March 1993.

Personal Life
Since May 1985, he has been married to Svetlana, court judge, with whom he has three children: two daughters (Tatjana and Nina), and a son (Danilo). Unlike Đukanović, he refuses to have bodyguards, so he can be often seen walking the streets of Podgorica with friends or even alone, but no security.
