Summary/Abstract: After the Union of Bukovina with the Kingdom of Romania, Iancu Flondor served as Deputy Minister of the province, establishing his headquarters in Chernivtsi between December 1918 and April 1919. He was supervising nine Secretariats of Service (appointed for Interior, Justice, Finance, Public Education, Religious Affairs, Public Works, Industry, Commerce and Social Welfare, Agriculture, Domains and Food, Public Health). Iancu Flondor's activity has circumscribed a wide range of issues: economic recovery of Bucovina; organization of municipal elections; appointment in the administration of officials of Romanian origin; care and retirement pensions for war invalids; financial aid for those decorated in war; payment of war damage, requisition rates and remunerations both for officers and soldiers; effective leadership of the Religious Fund economy; proper supply of the urban and rural localities of Bukovina; lifting of siege and abolishing corporal punishment; implementation of the transitional agrarian reform; issues related to administration, justice, education, communications, transport, commerce, social protection, sanitation of cities and villages etc. The conflict with Ion Nistor, the Deputy Minister of Bukovina in Bucharest, linked to different views on how to integrate the province into Great Romania forced Flondor's resignation from office and his withdrawal from political life.
