 The phrase deliberative democrag  is attributed to the author Joseph Bessett, who in the
 article Democrag the majority principle in republican government, publshed in 1980,
 argued about a new form  of democrag  in contradiction ith classical democrag, about
 deliberative democrag as an authentic alternative to traditional forms. In this respect, it is
 admitted that the political deisions cannot be legitimized without an eary negotiation
 dialogue [1: 1].
         The  rise of populism in Central and Eastern Europe is ajustification for the
 democratic crisis, a failure of representative politics after 1989. A negative effect of the
 populist current was also seen in Romania, Hungary or Poland. In this sense, applying a
 reorientation to a polig based on a deliberate democratic culture with populist influences
 was considered to be a solution that wouldjustify the intererence between populism and a
 deliberative democrag.
         The participation in the vote of the citiZens of Eastern Europe who initially see
 in the leftparties the popular interest is radically changing in the present, towards the rzght
 parties that no longer identify ith pure rzghtprinles. Furthermore, movng populism
from  the left foot to the right foot does not require saci ice. In the end, it all comes down to
changing  symbols, changing vocabulary but within the same type o polip  based on a
common     aqy of thinking both left and rzght. The distinction between the two is greatly
minimiZed.  The  transitional period in which the executives put pressure on the law
institutions and themselves ith  a rather weak  identity, on the press, on the media,
allowed a reassessment of the transient moments, the populist discourse haring the capacity
to capture democrag of a populist state [2:132]. The diagnosis of the causes of the increase
of populism  was  based  on two  major pillars, one being the failure of the national
institutions located in the space of national constitutions and the second is the influence of
the international institutions of the EU and of the Council of Europe that do not wish to
sanction the fall towards populism [3:219].
