By the time of the second post-war election in Hungary, the Smallholders Party saw their support dwindle from 57 per cent to 17 per cent, as the party was undermined and sabotaged by the communists. By 1948, full party control had been imposed. In Prague, by February 1948, the non-communist parties realised that they would have to force a confrontation with the communists, which they duly did over political appointments in the police.

Nationalism, in the form of support for ethnic Hungarians outside her Trianon borders and protest against Gabcikovo/N agymaros, re-emerged and formed a powerful multi-headed battering-ram against the citadel of the regime, at first sharing a common interest with the party reformers.
