History of HDS

HDS was the ruling party in Croatia for several terms in a row and no matter who sat the President's chair, most of the government positions have been filled by HDS members until winter 2009.

Foundation of HDS and early days

Hrvatska Demokratska Stranka was founded in December 2008. The idea of making such a party came from its first president - Roby Petric. He said that is very important for Croats to have multiple choices in choosing a party which suits them the most.

On the first elections all Croatians decided to unite in one party, so most of HDS members came to Hrvatska Ujedinjena Stranka so they could outnumber possible "takeover parties". Despite that fact, most of the Congress members were from HDS.

At first, it was difficult to decide which party is the best so every party started an "advertising campaign" while HDS did that by pure work. Roby Petric said that despite the fact that his party is the strongest, Croatia needs a strong opposition that will show the same quality of work which will set up a new standard.

Steady growth

When Roby Petric announced that he will not run again for party and country president, it was certain that in order to save the party and to continue its work, we needed a president of the same quality. split1700, a friend of Petric was the new hope of HDS. Despite the fact that he was young he quickly gained experience and continued the work in the same manner. First, he was elected as country president and then also as party president.

June takeovers

In June 2009, Serbs led by Sakal_ks had made a Political takeover of HDS and renamed it to Srpska Demokratska Stranka (SDS). To answer this move, matrixcore, the person who was supposed to succeed IVAN RADMAN as the president of the HDS, has quit the new SDS and moved to Hrvatski Zbor where he managed to get an arrangement with its president Dubrovnik 1919 who passed presidency of the Hrvatski Zbor to him so that matrixcore could rename party to Hrvatska Demokratska Stranka.
