During World War II, the Communist Party of Yugoslavia (CPY) tried to attract members of the pre-war Croatian Peasant Party (HSS) and thus expand the Partisan movement among the masses. They succeeded in part because the HSS Executive Board was formed in the liberated Partisan territory in 1943. After the end of the war, the Croatian Republican Peasant Party (HRSS), together with the CPY, participated in the elections as the United People's Liberation Front (JNOF) coalition. The CPY encouraged the establishment of HRSS branches. Thus, the party planned to achieve a good election result in areas that were not in its favour. The article will present the chronology of the party's organisational renewal in Dalmatia. No relevant sources on the number of renewed local party organisations have been published so far. Based on the information from newspaper reports, membership statistics of party branches in Dalmatia are presented. The programmatic autonomy of the party's Dalmatian branches, presented in the daily press through media appearances (interviews and speeches) of party leaders and official proclamations of the party's Executive Board in the period from 1945 to 1947, is explored. The degree of personnel and organisational dependence of the HRSS in Dalmatia on the CPY is also analysed. An analysis of the role of the HRSS within the Popular Front is conducted. The previously published literature on the HRSS and the archives of Slobodna Dalmacija, the then official gazette of the People's Front of Dalmatia, was used.
