ABSTRACT
The relation between political power and personal power involves a relation between the authority and the individual power and this general remark which is valid for any political sistem has special conotations in the case of postcommunist Romanian experience, which are in connection with the democratic consolidation, citizen participation and the Romanian ruling class. The Romanian political experience of the last decades proves that the understanding and the practice of democracy in the postcommunist age requires a "philosophical" view of the phenomenon of power. This was the reason why my study has focused on the main theoretical aspects of the relations between political power, authority and personal power, on the portrait of the leader and in the same time of the citizen whose current "critical" activity is not taken into account by representatives of political power, on the characteristics of an individual power and the frame for the citizen political participation under a democratic widespred deception. The hope to overcome this situation can be found in conceiving democracy as a system where the dialogue is possible and its topic is the public interest.
