Activism and politics
In the early 1990s, he has joined up with the movement fighting for rights of the Serbian people in Croatia, deemed endangered. In 1991 he participated in Knin, a pan-Serbian meeting of the SAO Kninska Krajina as one of the speakers. As a member of the Serbian Radical Party for RSK, he was elected MP in the Parliament of the Republic of Serbian Krajina and in 1994 elected its vice-president after the SRS-dominated parliamentary majority was constituted. The government fell in late 1994, after which Atlagic resigned from the position of Deputy Speaker.
In 1995, Atlagić was Minister without portfolio in the last RSK government, under Milan Babić. After Operation Storm, he had been one of the ministers from 1995 to 2006 by the SRS-promoted Government of the RSK in Exile. In 2007, the SRS had crumbled and Marko Atlagić had supported the Tomislav Nikolić fraction as opposed to Vojislav Šešelj, becoming a member of the new Serbian Progressive Party's Presidency and assigned for Refugee and IDP problems.
In 2006, Atlagić testified at the trial of Slobodan Milosevic.
