Marko Orlandić

Marko Orlandić (Serbian Cyrillic: Марко Орландић) (born 23 February 1930) was a high-ranking Montenegrin politician in Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRY) during the 1970s and '80s. In two terms, 1969-1971 and 1971-1974, he was a member of the Federal Executive Council of SFRY. He was the President of the Executive Council of the Socialist Republic of Montenegro from May 1974 to May 1978. From 1979 to 1982, he served as Ambassador of SFRY in Soviet Union (USSR).

He was the President of the Presidency of Montenegro from May 1983 to May 1984. From October 1984 to April 1986, he was the President of the Central Committee of the Montenegro League of Communists and a member of the Presidium of the Central Committee of the League of Communists of Yugoslavia (LCY). In 1986, he was again elected as a member of the Presidium of LCY. He held the post until his resignation on 1 February 1989. His resignation came after a series of demonstrations in Montenegro in the second half of 1988 and January 1989, orchestrated by the Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic and his followers. The demonstrations resulted in a collective resignation of the party and government leadership of Montenegro and Montenegrin representatives in the highest bodies of the Yugoslav government and party.

After the breakup of SFRY and the creation of new "Yugoslavia" consisting only of Serbia and Montenegro, Orlandić promoted full independence of Montenegro.[2] He authored three books in Serbo-Croatian: U Vrtlogu (1997), U Predvecerje Sloma (2002), and Crnogorsko Posrtanje (2005).
