Tomislav "Toma" Nikolić (Serbian Cyrillic: Томислав Николић; born February 15, 1952) is a Serbian politician, President of the Serbian Progressive Party. He is also a former member of the Serbian Radical Party, where he served as Deputy Leader of the party and parliamentary leader during the absence of Vojislav Šešelj from 23 February 23 2003 until he resigned on 6 September 2008 following a disagreement with Šešelj regarding Serbia's relations with the European Union.

He served as President of the National Assembly of Serbia between 8 and 13 May 2007 and was Deputy Prime Minister in the coalition government of Yugoslavia from 1999 to 2000. Nikolić ran for the President of Yugoslavia in the 2000 elections and placed third. He also ran three times for the President of Serbia (in the 2003, 2004 and 2008 elections). In 2003 he won the most votes, but the election was canceled due to low turnout. In 2004 and 2008 he placed second behind Boris Tadić.

Nikolić has published thirteen books as of 2005, mostly about politics. He and his wife Dragica (née Ninković) have two sons, Radomir and Branislav.
