ABSTRACT
Although the politico-administrative relati-onships represent a weird field for many of those not specialized in public administration the importance of the issue cannot be ignored. The influence of politicians in the policy making processes is at stake. Politicians are claiming the right to impose their political programs because they are representing the will of the people mandated by vote. Bureaucrats have expertise and better knowledge of the needs of the citizens coming from the day by day interaction with them. The facts presented in the present paper show that, with few exceptions, countries experience increasing political influence over the decision making processes. Even administrative systems with strong bureaucratic traditions, such as Sweden and Germany, face elements of politicization. What seems to be important for the well functioning of the modern societies is keeping an appropriate equilibrium between the two components of the Government.
