The consequences that usually result from crises of regimes and changes in political-economic systems are the exchange of power political elites. This happened several times in Slovakia in the first half of the 20th century. From the central level of politics, the changes have been affected in the next stages of its lower grades – regions, towns and municipalities. The contribution submitted focuses on the 1930s and 1940s, when an authoritarian popular regime with totalitarian elements was established in Slovakia. In a case study of the long-time leader of Nitra, František Mojto, the author tries to outline the legitimacy and agility of the Nitra political elite. On his example, we can explicitly observe remarkable ways in the process of handing power over or cooperation of political actors at all levels of the state and party apparatus. At the same time, his case signals to us the continuity of personnel with the democratic Czechoslovak Republic, which, however, was rather the exception at the national level as a rule.
