SRPSKA NACIONALNA KULTURA U POLITIČKOM GOVORU VLASTI
SERBIAN NATIONAL CULTURE IN POLITICAL TALK OF GOVERNMENT

SUMMARY
In this paper we will analyse treatment of Serbian national culture in public speeches and authorised texts of the politicians in power in Serbia. We will adopt political discourse analysis and general text analysis in order to detect modalities of usage of national cultural and messages within studied texts and speeches. Key politicians in the period 2012-2020 are actual President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, who is also leader of Serbian Progressive Party (SPP), Parliament Speaker Ivica Dačić, leader of the Serbian Socialist Party (SSP) and Ana Brnabić, Prime Minister of Serbia, member of SPP. Mentioned three politicians, generally have two attitudes to national culture in examined period.
Inaugural speeches, greetings on special occasions and state holidays, elec-tions speeches, public speeches on crucial political issues like on the status of Kos-ovo and Metohija present raw data.

KEYWORDS
