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.
Upon founding of the Olympic Committee of Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1992, Kljuić was elected its first president. 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.
