Description:

Some specialists in the field of administrative law argue that the origin of the prefect’s institution is found in ancient Rome, where the notion of prefect meant either official civil, military or economic functions, or administrative units. The prefect of Rome was called “prefectus urbis”. Others consider the term in question to belong to the Napoleonic era. As Prof. M. Waline argued, “the prefect is a Napoleonic creation and was created in the eighth year of the Great French Revolution; until the amendment of the French Constitution in 1958, the prefect was the representative of the Government and the head of the administration of the department in which he functioned ”. After 1958, “the prefect is the representative of the state, of national interests; the representative of the Government; general administration body; coordinating body of the state services in the department ”. (J.Rivero) Trying to make a correspondence between the administrative duties of the prefect nowadays and the administrative tasks of the leaders of the administrative-territorial units of the past, it can be said that in our country, the evolution of the prefect’s function is in close agreement with the evolution of the administrative-territorial units.
