On the basis of archive materials the author analyses the relations between the Communist Party of Slovenia and the Liberation Front of Slovenia in the period between 1945 and 1953. In 1953 the name of the Liberation Front was changed to Socialist Alliance of Working People. Under the conditions of the one–party system we cannot refer to the cohabitation of individual political choices, since only one – supposedly all–encompassing and generally valid – choice existed. The majority of efforts of the political and state leadership, which was identical to the leadership of the Communist Party of Slovenia (Communist Party of Yugoslavia) between 1945 and 1953, when the so–called people's revolution transformed into the socialist revolution, was aimed at unity in all segments of the social life. The Liberation Front of Slovenia (People's Front of Yugoslavia) was used in the pursuit of this goal as an intermediary between the leadership and the people.
