He was loved by the people and was called “Bаја“, as he was wise, calm and firm political leader. Until the WWI, Nikоlа Pаšić the Prime Minister in four terms. He led Serbia successfully through the Balkan Wars and the First World War. He led a Serbian delegation at the 1913 peace conference in Bucharest, but also in Paris after the First World War.
