HSLS is the first party formed in 1989 when that was made possible (many politiciance now in other parties were initialy members of this one, most notably president Tudjman just before he formed his own party). During 1990's was strongest oposition party, and in 2000 in colation with SDP and four other parties won the elections. Suffered number of fractations, most notble when LS was formed, and recently when number of her ministers in the government broke up.
