Sarajevo, Kingdom of Yugoslavia
|Political party||Republican Party of Bosnia and Herzegovina|
Stjepan Kljuić was a member of the presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina and a founding member of the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) party in 1990. He served as the president of the Bosnian branch of the Croatian Democratic Union and protested that Croats should support the elected government of Alija Izetbegović. The central HDZ leadership in Zagreb pressured local leadership in Croatian Republic of Herzeg-Bosnia to depose him of his leadership position. He was replaced with Mate Boban.
In 1994, he founded his own party, the Republican Party, a multi-ethnic, pro-Bosnia party. He stood as the party's candidate for the Croat member of the Presidency in the 2002 general elections, but failed to be elected.
Later, Kljuić took part in the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia proceedings.
