Bunjevci, party, politics, Constitution, Parliament, the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenians
Shortly after creation of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenians, Bunjevci got engaged in the political life. The intention of the most Bunjevac intelligence was to preserve the unity in the political performance, in the same way as it existed in the cultural and artistic creation. However, under the influence of national and political centers of power, primarily from Serbia and Croatia, it was hardly sustainable. Bunjevci first established Bunjevci-Šokci party, which ran the pre-election campaign with its recognizable program of the Autonomous Program of Vojovodina, inaccurate contents and open interpretations, winning few seats in the Constituent Assembly. Supporting the inertia of the parliamentary session, representatives of the party joined the established Yugoslav club in the parliament, lead by the Slovenian People's Party. In this way, they supported the multinational and federal concept of proposals for the constitutional system of the country. On the other hand, a number of Bunjevci supported the establishment of the Agricultural party and participation of its general representative in the Assembly. The party eventually joined the National Radical Party, demanding a preservation of the national Unitarianism and the centralized concept of the government system. Stratification of political attitudes among Bunjevci was visible in the next period of the inter-war political history of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia.
