Abstract

With the establishment of the Croatian - Serbian coalition it could be concluded that the period of political life of Svetozar Pribicević, in which he built himself as a political figure, was crowned by the rejection of the state-legal arguments and historical factors, failing to recognize any difference among the South Slavs. During this period, he managed to impose a new program to his party, agreeing with the view of the national unity of Serbs and Croats, and demanding radical democratic reforms. From 1906 to 1918, the party in the parliament represented almost all Serbian electoral districts in Croatia, mainly relying on the Croatian-Serbian coalition. During his work on the mentioned political course, he succeeded with the creation of the Croatian-Serbian coalition in order to unite their efforts in meeting the "youths" in Maksimir in 1898, and linking the Serbian and Croatian parties to work together and cooperate, which was his goal since the college days.
