Party Nomenclature in Western Siberia During Perestroika.

M.V. Kotlyarov
Keywords: KPSU, perestroika, nomenclature, Western Siberia
Pages: 67-71


The article analyzes the party nomenclature in the Western Siberia in 1985-1991. The author shows that during perestroika significant reduction and change in the party's composition took place. In 1985-1990 the correlation between gender, age and national groups among the party cadres has not practically changed. However a number of national economy specialists and persons with higher political education increased in executive positions. Significant reduction in number of experienced workers in the party committees reflected their weakness and decrease of their status in the political system. As a result it lead to the further weakness of the KPSU.
