Summary/Abstract: There's a special role and place for the deputies traders in the Bulgarian political corps. On a local level they are the key players in the political structure and political faces on a regional and national level. In the meantime their role is also of business leaders, political leaders on city and county level, whose funding to institutions and political parties provide personal network to create effective political structures and successful management of election campaigns. The strength of the commercial community in a political formation practically ensures not only its existence but it also guarantees a successful political activity. At the end of the nineteenth century they occupy about 1/3 of all political positions in the parties, parliaments, governments and other elected bodies. This enables them to become the main driving force behind the modernization of the country politically, economically and culturally.
