Commission for the Examination of Nationalist Phenomena in the Emigrant Foundation of Croatia of the League of Communists of Croatia (1964-1967)
The Commission for the Examination of Nationalist Phenomena in the Emigrant Foundation of Croatia (1964-1967) was one of the working bodies of the Executive Council of the Central Committee of the League of Communists of Croatia in the period 1945-1990. The League of Communists of Yugoslavia was the ruling political organization in the former Yugoslavia, of which the League of Communists of Croatia (LCC) was a part. The LC dictated the overall development of Yugoslav and Croatian society, and Party decisions were largely binding on the state and republic authorities and governmental bodies, as well as for mass political organizations. Party organizations in Yugoslavia, as well as Party organizations in its federal units, were managed by their central committees as the highest organs of the Party between the two congresses. To accomplish defined program objectives, LC CC elected the constituent, executive political body (Political Bureau or Politburo, 1937-1952, Executive Council, 1952-1974, Presidium, 1974-1989). To carry out specific tasks, the Executive Council established working bodies - permanent or interim commissions to deal with specific issues. One of them was the Commission for the Examination of Nationalist Phenomena in the Emigrant Foundation of Croatia, established with the sole aim of identifying phenomena labelled as nationalistic in an organisation charged with establishing ties to the very numerous and politically heterogeneous Croatian emigrant communities: the Emigrant Foundation of Croatia. It was vital to the LCC leadership that the person at the head of this organisation fully adhered to the accepted political line, and President Većeslav Holjevac had departed from it. That is why, after this Commission’s investigation, he was dismissed and expelled from the LCC.
