Relations within the Federation led towards further decentralization during the 1960s. The constitution of 1963 gave even more powers to the republics, and yet another constitutional reform was inaugurated by the early 1970s. Tito, however, remained the cohesive factor, regardless of any kind of constitutional changes. He was certainly above the constitution. Yugoslavia was no longer one society, but a compilation of closely connected societies. In Bosnia-Herzegovina, changes were also inevitable in order to catch up with the other republics.

One could find people with very different backgrounds at the top of society. They could come from an illiterate family in a backward village or an urban, wealthy family. The factor actor which connected people with such different backgrounds, was politics; it made them equal.
