Sažetak The territory of the Republic of Croatia was until the adoption of the Local Sel fgovernment and Administration Act of December 1992 divided into municipalities (102 in 1990) and associations of municipalities (10) which were local units at the regional level. Despite the argumented claims not to change the existing administrative-territorial division of the national territory until the end of the war, “extensive reorganization” of local self-government started. The number of local units increased by five times. In that process, not rational but political criteria were taken into consideration. During the 1990s, so
called imaginary employment positions were opened in local units as one of the means of solving the problem of unemployment. Corruption and nepotism were among the main problems in local administration. “Balkanisation” of administration was at work, not only in Lika, but also in the Republic of Croatia. It was manifested in the following characteristics of administration: arrogance, massiveness, inefficiency and irresponsibility. The new political elite did little for “de-Balkanisation” of administration. That is, for the establishment of the Weberian model of rational administration which, among others, is characterised by the principle sine ira et studio. After political changes in 2000, certain efforts in respect of rationalisation of
the system of local self-government have been made, particularly by the rationalisation of the number of employees. This, of course, is not enough. It is necessary to reduce a great number of municipalities, towns and counties. Instead of 21 counties, the Croatian territory
should be divided into regions. And the area of Lika should probably most rationally be divided between the regions of Dalmatia and Rijeka.
