In Bucecea there were two political parties, namely: the National Liberal Party led by lawyer Mihai Alexandrescu and the Peasant National Party, led by his brother Traian Alexandrescu. Both brothers were also lawyers in the Bucecea Court Bar and former mayors in turn. Besides these two parties, in Bucecea there were also other political factions: the Cezist, the Averestian and the Legionary factions, who did not manage to take over the commune's leadership.
