In 1969, Rastoder went to live in Titograd (today's Podgorica) where he continues to live to this day. He became a professional journalist in 1980. Until 1986, he worked for Radio Crne Gore as a journalist, program editor and the editor of the programming block. In 1990, he was voted Best Journalist.

From 1991, he was a journalist and editor in the weekly news magazine Monitor, along with one of the initiators of founding Radio Antena M.

Politically, he was one of the founders and vice-presidents of the Civic Movement since 1990. He is also a member of the board of the Civic Forum and is one of the founders of the Social Democratic Party of Montenegro, of which he is vice-president.

He was chosen as representative in the Parliament four times, and deputy speaker of the Parliament for three mandates of which he served under Svetozar Marović, Filip Vujanović and current speaker of parliament, Ranko Krivokapić.

On 19 May 2003, Rifat Rastoder - along with the second deputy speaker of parliament Dragan Kujović - became joint acting president of Montenegro after Filip Vujanović resigned from his position of acting President of Montenegro and Speaker of Parliament to prepare for his inauguration as President of Montenegro three days later, 22 May.
