This thesis is a comparative study of the central government administration in Guinea and Senegal in the light of the contrasting political systems said to operate in the two states since independence. Guinea and Senegal became independent in 1958 and 1960 respectively and according to existing studies of both states, they have developed contrasting political systems. However, until they became independent, both states were French colonies and were administered under a common administrative system established by the French rulers. On the basis of the existing studies of the two states' political systems which are reviewed in the Introduction, it is postulated that in Senegal, the central government administration would represent an apparent evolution out of the French colonial administration modified and adapted to suit the goals of the government but in accordance with the basic ideas and principles that underlay the French colonial administration. With Guinea, on the other hand, given the way in which independence was achieved, the stated ideology and the goals of the government and the emphasis in academic studies on the party both as a policy making and, in some cases, as an administrative institution, it might be expected that past colonial experience would have a minimal influence and that the central government administration would have markedly different characteristics; and thus, that this central government administration would present significant contrasts to that in Senegal. The central concern of the thesis is to investigate this general proposition.
