Political career

The first election during which Obradović ran for higher office was the 2012 Serbian parliamentary election, where his party won 4.34% of the total national vote. In the 2016 Serbian parliamentary election, Obradović agreed for Dveri to run in a coalition with the Democratic Party of Serbia, who also ran on a eurosceptic platform. The Dveri-DSS coalition received 5% of the national vote, and so Dveri got into the Serbian parliament for the first time.

In an interview with the Gazprom-Media magazine on June 30, 2014, Obradović said that Serbia should join the Collective Security Treaty Organization and Eurasian Economic Union, as opposed to NATO and the European Union. Obradović argued that integration into the EU would lead to an undesired confrontation with Russia.

Republika Srpska

After the referendum on whether or not Republika Srpska should have its own holiday, Obradović articulated his support for Republika Srpska in an interview with an online Youtube channel Balkan Info which was organized on September 18, 2016. He explained that he would welcome Republika Srpska gaining independence from Bosnia and Herzegovina and subsequently uniting with Serbia. In a later interview with Pravda, Obradović said that the unification of Republika Srpska and Serbia should take the form of a confederacy.

In June 2016, Obradović rejected the "Proposal for a Resolution on Genocide in Srebrenica" in the Serbian parliament, which suggested that July 11 become a national memorial day for the Srebrenica massacre. His party issued a statement regarding the Srebrenica massacre, saying that "genocide did not happen in Srebrenica."

In an interview with Pravda, Obradović criticized Aleksandar Vučić for arresting 18 Serbian citizens who allegedly participated in the 2015-16 Montenegrin protests, saying that Vučić supports Milo Đukanović remaining in power in Montenegro. In both interviews with Pravda and Balkan Info, Obradović suggested that a referendum in Montenegro should be held on re-unification with Serbia.

Social issues

In the city assembly of Čačak, Obradović discussed pro-natalist proposals and called law for protecting indebted families in 2014. Shortly after his party entered parliament for the first time in 2016, Obradović was invited to support the Gay Parade in Belgrade on September 18, 2016. However he publicly declined the invitation and denounced the parade, stating that "sexual orientation is not a human right". Obradović attended his party's counter-march to the Gay Parade, called the "Family Walk".

In 2015, Obradović argued for returning compulsory military service in Serbia. He referred to military service as "one of the most important schools of life", and added that another crucial reason for returning conscription was so that "men can become men again, so that men won't be slackers but men." The issue of conscription has a historical context in Serbia, since in the state of Yugoslavia required conscription when most adults in Serbia were growing up. From December 10 to 17, 2016, sociologist Srećko Mihailović conducted a nation-wide survey with a sample size of 1,200 adults on whether Serbia should return conscription, with the results being that 75% of respondents supported a return of conscription in Serbia.
