  Romanian Communist Party - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The party was founded in 1921 when the Bolshevik-inspired faction won control of Romania's Social-Democratic party - the Socialist Party of Romania, successor to the defunct Romanian Social-Democratic Workers' Party and the short-lived Romanian Social Democratic Party (the latter was refounded in 1927).
Interwar Romania had a minority population of 30%, and it was largely from this section that the party drew its membership - a large percentage of it was comprised of Jews, Hungarians and Bulgarians.
The Communist Party engaged in a recruitment campaign and was able to attract numbers of workers and intellectuals as well as former members of the fascist Iron Guard.

 Romania - The Communist Party
According to the party statutes, the supreme organ of the PCR was the party congress, consisting of delegates elected by the judet conferences at a ratio of 1 delegate per 1,000 members.
The party's identification with national interests was interpreted as rejection of the concept of "dictatorship of the proletariat," a phrase that was supplanted in party parlance by "state of the revolutionary workers' democracy." The policies pursued by the PCR were designed to maintain firm control of economic planning and administration.
Party control was enhanced by the territorial and administrative reorganization of 1968, which set up commissions in all of the new judete to function under the direct supervision of the judet PCR committees.
