The scholarly study and analysis of the Hungarian council system (1950-1990) as a system of institutions and structure of public administration is a novel challenge rarely attempted at to date in the field of the history of public administration: although the period of 40 years under study is still a "grey area" for legal historians, there are already researchers and experts who "venture" into this territory. In addition to offering a historical overview, the present work also analyses the life and operation of public administration in a specific historical and legal period from legal and administrative aspects. The reason being that the council system, although probably still to be subjected to much debate and criticism, was definitely a possible form of the Hungarian public administration and today it constitutes an integral part of the history of the 20th century. Therefore it has to be written and spoken about as it has left a legacy and experience of four decades both in theory and in practice. Learning about the system of councils with its complex operation is also indispensable to people of our days for the reason that notwithstanding all kinds of political slogans, it constitutes an unavoidable part of the 20th century history of Eastern-Central Europe and Hungary immediately preceding the present constitutional system. With all its merits and disadvantages, it was one possible model for the structure and institutional system of public administration, without value judgement. It is important to emphasize this as every country needs a network of public administration institutions at all times, without which society would be incapable of operating. The present fragmented structure of local governments is not without faults, and neither were the councils — however, both operated/operate and organized/organize the citizens' and communities' life. This is why it is important to study them not only with the methods of public history but also with those of legal history. The major part of the essay is constituted by the presentation of the Council of Szeged, City of County Rank in the South of Hungary, or to be more precise shortly its organs, their operation and legal rules. As a starting point for this, the rules of organization and operation, modified and reworded several times after 1971, were analysed, compared and described in their development. The author chose one feature of the great number of such rules of the "mature" council system (1971-1990) and used it for the detailed description of the development and work of the most important council institutions. As part of this, the legal characteristics of the council body, the delegates, council committees, executive committee and specialist administrative organs were examined separately.
