The Central Understanding Committee was founded on 22 November 1944. In the Silesian-Dqbrowa voivodship the first Committees were founded in March— April 1945. The Peasant Party has actively joined in their works in summer 1945. Since 27 December 1945 the representatives of the Polish Peasant Party entered into the composition of the Voivodship Understanding Committee. The refusal of the Polish Peasant Party entering into the common electoral bloc caused ceasing the works of the Party in the Committees (the end of March 1946).
In the period of spring 1945 — spring 1947 the Committees were a kind of political organ of the Democratic Bloc. The participation of the Peasant Party was seen not only in the political fight (national referendum, elections to the Constituent Assembly) but also in the solving and realizing the current socio-economic problems of the voivodship. In 1947 and 1948 follows the gradual disappearance of the works of the Understanding Committees for the bilateral meetings. Particularly close was the cooperation between the Peasant Party and the Polish Workers’ Party.
