Towards Yugoslav Federal Unity 43 The switch to the Comintern’s new Popular Front, though welcomed by many communists, presented its member parties with a delicate balancing act. The KPJ faced a great credibility challenge in its quest for rapprochement with the liberal and social democratic forces which it had treated with considerable hostility for years. Support from other anti-fascist and anti-regime forces in a broad political coalition led by the KPJ was not forthcoming. Communication from the exiled CK KPJ, which maintained main responsibility for transmitting all Comintern instructions and directives to the cadres operating inside Yugoslavia, was sporadic, leaving the Yugoslav cadres to manage as best they could for much of the time.

Maček rightly calculated that much of the support of those sympathetic to the communist cause would go to the United Opposition, and saw no need to grant concessions to the KPJ, or give them any significant role in the oppositional front. In the end, these elections changed little, since the Regent Prince ignored the results and installed Milan Stojadinović as the new Yugoslav Prime Minister. With his increasing expression of sympathies towards the Axis powers, Stojadinović gradually steered the vulnerable Yugoslav state closer to international disaster.

Among the internal events that hugely impacted on the development of the KPJ’s strategies towards the national question, were the intensification of political conflict within Yugoslavia following the assassination of Stjepan Radić in 1928, and the introduction of royal dictatorship under Aleksandar I in 1929. After Radić’s assassination, parliament headed towards breakdown. In an attempt to overcome the political deadlock that followed the death of Radić, and to ensure the continuing unity of a centralised and Serbian-dominated state, King Aleksandar introduced a temporary arrangement that soon became a permanent dictatorship.
