1952 Romanian legislative election

Parliamentary elections were held in Romania on 30 November 1952.[1] They were the second held under the Socialist Republic of Romania, and the first under a constitution adopted that September.[2] They were also the first held after longtime Prime Minister Petru Groza handed the post to Communist Party leader Gheorghe Gheorghiu-Dej, who had been the country's de facto leader since the Communists seized full power in 1947.

Voters were presented with a single slate of candidates from the People's Democratic Front, which was dominated by the Romanian Workers' Party.[3] The Front won all 428 seats in the Great National Assembly.[4] This election set the tone for all elections held in Romania until 1989. For the remainder of the Communist era, voters only had the choice of approving or rejecting a Communist-dominated list.
