This had made possible the omnipotence of Stalin and his entourage, and a 'wave of repressive measures and lawlessness'. The 20th Party Congress in 1956 had begun to eliminate these distortions, but had not succeeded in doing so because the importance of democratic change had been underestimated. A 'bloated administrative apparatus' had taken over the management of economic as well as political life; about a third of the population had been elected to local government bodies of various kinds, but most of them had been deprived of real influence.
