EDITORIAL NOTE
In the period since the appearance of the last issue of ,,The New Yu-
goslav Law a considerable political and legal activity has been recorded in
Yugoslavia. Regular elections were carried out for the Federal People's As-
sembly and the People's Assemblies of the People's Republics forming the
Yugoslav Federation. A series of laws were  passed bearing on different
domains of the economic, political and state life of the country. Some of
these laws have a principled character too, indicating more clearly or sure-
ly the substance and  the conditions for the further development of the
social and legal organization of the country.
For the issue we have chosen, first of all, a brief review of the elec-
tion system which has governed the election of the highest representative
bodies of the country in March, 1958. Indeed the existing election system
which was inaugurated by the Law of the Rights and Duties, the Election
and Recall of Federal People's Deputies from  1953 was not essentially
changed. But there are certain innovations in the system according to which
the election of the representative bodies was carried out, and these inno-
vations may be of interest for all those studying the problems of the po-
litical development of Yugoslavia or making a parallel study of the election
systems in the world. In our next issue it is proposed to analyse the election
results through the method of ,,electoral sociology. Hence it has appeared
necessary to provide an opportunity here for an acquaintanceship with the
election system as a presumption for following  the sociological-political
analysis of the election results.
Foreign specialists and jurists are always interested for the laws re-
lating to the public function or the status of employees being public of-
ficials. The new Yugoslav Law of Public Servants, beside the characteristics
of all the better known laws relating to the public service, includes a series
of specific features as well. The Yugoslav official differs from the British
,,civil servant because lie has not been conceived of as a part of a pro-
fessional personnel called upon impartially to serve the ruling policy. Nor
is the Yugoslav official a hierarchized, career-system official of the French
type. Likewise he is not some kind of a ,,private employee or pro tem pro-
tagonist of a certain statutory or contractual ,,public investiture either.
