Central Govt 

Tsar had ability to make decisions until 1905.

Changed under October Manifesto, State Council to check on Duma the elected lower chamber.  Restricted their power under Fundamental Laws 1906 - Duma accountable to Tsar

Top at Communists was Politburo. Council of Ministers = main law making/admin body. Similar to Central Executive Comittee - Orgburo - party affairs, Ogburo (opposition) and Sovnarkom - Govt ministers - eg Stalin for national minorities

1936 Constitution -  Supreme Soviet/USSR - main law making body. Soviet of union representatives of USSR & nationalities - but only met twice a year. Communist party remained 'nucleus of all the public and state organisations of the working people' - Article 126

Local Govt

1881 Zemstva monitored by land captains
