Abstract: The article deals with the sources of influence of the Agrarian Party in Slovakia during the inter-war period. Since 1922, the Agrarian Party in Slovakia was an integral part of the state-wide Czechoslovak agrarian movement. Despite the fact that it had never won the highest number of votes in Slovakia and always finished as the second most supported party, thanks to the centralist political system it was also the most influential party in Slovakia. The article examines four basic political activities of the party which made it much more successful than the other centralist parties in Slovakia. Those included organizational structure, affiliated organizations, the land reform and its utilization as a propagandist tool as well as numerous and successful intervention on behalf of its membership.
