Abstract In this paper we tried to emphasize the most important features of the political context in which the issue of the communist past is raised after 2006 with the sequence Tismăneanu Comission-Oficial Report- Presidential condemnation. This is an occasion to understand the difficulties of the relationship between the civil society demands for transitional justice and the Romanian institutions will to deliver policies in the anticommunist logic. In 2000-2010 we can see de-politicization and then a re-politicization of anti-communist discourse that emerges as a blending of some structural factors defining the relationship with the communist past in Romanian political context. After 2006 occurred an explosion of the anti-communist galaxy, basically on political issues, which led to a remarkable diminution of the influence of the transitional justice supporters in the political sphere.
