Administraţia publică centrală şi locală – Represiune sau supunere (1946 – 1947) / The Central And Local Public Administration – Repression Or Subjection (1946 – 1947)

Limba de redactare română
Excerpt The purpose of this article is to analyze the dynamics of the political purge which the public administration sector underwent in 1946 – 1947, a period marked by the assault of the Communists on the legislative power and on the monarchic regime represented by the young King Michael. The process was initiated especially after 6 March 1945, once the Romanian Communist Party gained control of the government, and was directed against all sorts of public functionaries: general administrative inspectors, prefects, sub-prefects, notaries, head- praetors, praetors, mayors, deputy mayors, county and communal functionaries. Initially, the purpose was to ensure a loyal public administration for the parliamentary elections due on 19 November 1946, which the opposition (the National Peasants’ Party, the National Liberal Party, the Social Democrat Party) hoped would be democratically organized. After the elections, the purge continued with the elimination of administrative functionaries suspected of lack of allegiance to the Communist principles or opposition towards the Communist regime. The political purge aimed at the central and local public administration was one of the efficient methods which the Romanian Communist Party used to seize and consolidate total political power, an objective that was achieved by 1948, after King Michael had been forced to abdicate and, following the Soviet model, Romania had been proclaimed a Popular Republic (30 December 1947).
