Abstract: The last political success of Prime Minister Imre Nagy was the establishment of the Popular Front in 1954. The new organization, similar to the former Popular Front for Independence that existed during WW2 in Hungary, would provide support the new reform Government and have a say in shaping the country’s affairs. During the establishment of the new Government’s Program developed a conflict between the group of Imre Nagy and that of party General Secretary Mátyás Rakosi. The conflict was also noted with interest in Moscow. The uncertainty derived from the hostility between Rákosi and Imre Nagy can be detected from the Radio propaganda programs. After a successful Popular Front Congress on the November 28, 1954, the national Local Council Elections were held. But the Councils did not become autonomous, they were supervised by the Office of the Council of Ministers. The promise, however, was still lingering on. Not for a long time. Following the elections, the very next day the process aimed at expelling. To remove Imre Nagy entirely from politics had soon began. Mátyás Rákosi did not hesitate to use any single means against him, trusting the support of Moscow.
