The functioning of the administration is not always ideal. Much depends on the work of those involved in official positions. If the right people are in the right positions Administration runs much more smoothly. However, it is not easy to choose the right person. Candidates encouraged to vote for yourself on many different ways. But the lust for power is so great that during the campaign they can do much to gain office. During the election, there are many crimes such as bribery. This problem is not new. With these problems they met already in Ancient Rome. To prevent such electoral offenses created many constitutions, which contained severe penalties. In this article I mention about them, but do not describe too much, because in the literature they were already enough well presented. However, it is difficult to assess whether production have produced results. But how can we get to know them during the short time of the campaign? In ancient Rome there was suffragator, which advertised the candidate spoke about his qualities. But not always acted selflessly. Sometimes urged to vote not because of the relevant characteristics of the candidate, but because that paid him. Today is also difficult for us to get to know a candidate during the election. I therefore find it difficult to make the right choice, but well-functioning administration depends on the right choices.
