The номенклатуpa was the list of all Communist Party members and all influential positions in the Soviet Union at both the national and local level. With this list, the Politburo was able to appoint Party members in every sphere of influence, simply by liquidating the current position-holder and replacing them with a person whose loyalty was solely to the Communist Party. This allowed the Communist Party to be far more influential, reaching into every area of life. Communists were even appointed as presidents of universities; they were placed in any field that reached large amounts of people.
