Abstract The article examines the political configuration of elected institutions in Bucharest, the capital of Romania. After offering an overview of the evolution of the electoral setting up of local government in Bucharest, we explain the particularities of the capital within the Romanian administrative and political framework. We then focus our analysis on local party politics since 1992, on the basis of a cross examination of the various electoral results for the city hall in the 1990s and 2000s. Our analysis shows a double trend: on the one hand, a significant reduction of the number of political parties acting at the municipality level is noticeable; on the other hand, we can observe that whereas the scenario of a single party or coalition governing undisputedly the city hall and its sub-units was valid in the 1990s, it started to be refuted since the beginning of the 2000s.
