Since the legacy and the brand of the historic Croatian Peasant Party from the early 20th Century (led by Stjepan Radić and Vladko Maček) is popular and well-known, there have been couple of splinter groups and various parties in Bosnia and Herzegovina have a similar name, invoking CPP tradition.
In 2007, CPP and the New Croatian Initiative merged. The New Croatian Initiative was formed earlier as a splinter group from the Croatian Democratic Union of Bosnia and Herzegovina by Krešimir Zubak. The merger was originally named HSS-NHI (English: CPP-NCI). After CPP-NCI underwent turmoil and internal divisions grew, a division of former CPP members led by Ljiljana Lovrić left the party and reestablished Croatian Peasant Party of Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2010. Weakened CPP joined HDZ and other minor center-right parties in a coalition to contest 2010 elections, opposed to the Croatian Coalition.
In February 2017, party president Mario Karamatić said CPP will demand a reestablishment of Croatian Republic of Herzeg-Bosnia in its 1995 shape if the Republika Srpska secedes. Karamatić declared Croats have been "fooled" by the 1994 Washington Agreement that abolished Herzeg-Bosnia and established the Croat-Bosniak Federation, that this agreement was also broken numerous times and that Croats have the right to recede to the status quo ante, i.e., Herzeg-Bosnia. As far as the Herzeg-Bosnia's tentative territory, Karamatić proposed the area served by the electricity utility Elektroprivreda HZ HB, which covers most areas of Croat habitation.
As a part of "Croats Together" coalition, CPP won 1 seat in the House of Representatives and 2 out of 17 Croat seats in the House of Peoples of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Part of HDZ-led coalition. No seats won.
In the 2014 Bosnia elections, most of the parties participating in Croatian National Assembly's work (HDZ BiH, Croatian Peasant Party, HKDU BiH, HSP "dr. Ante Starčević" and HSP HB) formed a joint electoral coalition to contest the entity and state parliamentary elections as well as the elections for the Croat member of the state presidency. Coalition won 14 out of 17 Croat seats in the House of Peoples in Federation's Parliament and 4 out of 5 Croat seats in the State House of Peoples, together with 19 seats in Federation's and 14 in State House of Representatives, respectively. CPP's deputies formed a joint club with other parties from CNA Coalition's list. CPP's Mario Karamatić holds one of five Croat seats in the state House of Peoples.
