Nebojša Stambolija, THE GOVERNMENTS OF THE YUGOSLAV KINGDOM 1918‒1945: CHRONOLOGICAL DIVISION AND STATISTICAL ANALYSIS
Until March 7, 1945, when a unified government was formed consisting of representatives of the National Committee for the Liberation of Yugoslavia and the last Government of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, a total of 47 executive power cabinets were formed, of which 7 functioned from emigration during the period when the country was occupied in World War II. Political life in this period was marked by various conflicts, primarily over the way the state was organized. The only authority that had uninterrupted continuity in this period, although in certain periods it was not supported by the parliament, was the government. Governments changed very often, on average every six and a half months, and several cabinets did not even last two months. The first government of Nikola Uzunović lasted the shortest, only seven days, and the second cabinet of Milan Stojadinović lasted the longest, 1,018 days. A total of 18 persons held the office of prime minister. We have divided the time interval taken for the analysis of ministerial cabinets into six periods, which have certain specificities and deserve to be considered separately. Out of 18 prime ministers, only two were not Orthodox (Anton Korošec and Ivan Šubašić). Fifteen of them were born on the territory of the former Kingdom of Serbia. Only Dragiša Cvetković did not have a higher education, and as many as eight had doctorates. By profession, exactly half were lawyers. Three were high school professors, two were generals, one was an engineer, a journalist, a priest and a publicist. Out of 47 cabinets, 20 were headed by representatives of the People’s Radical Party. A total of 239 persons held the office of minister. The dominance of the ministers of the Orthodox religion was clear, but many of them were from the ex-Austro-Hungary. From the analysis, we also see that they were in a large majority with higher education. However, the frequent changing of the cabinet, which was caused by political crises, was one of the reasons why a very small number of them left a significant mark and had a stronger impact with their work in their department.
