The Crisis of the Parliamentary Regime

In 1935 the parliament moved from the building of Kolokotroni square, where they were housed since the middle of the 19th century, to the Old Palace, the present House of Parliament.

At the political level, that year was marked by the continuous anti-parliamentary actions and the perpetuation of the division of the National Schism. The dictatorship of the 4th August 1936 was the climax of these processes.

The restoration of the reign with the consensus of the whole political world was the symptom of the newly coming abolition of the constitutional regime. The general consensus reinforced the political role of the Crown, which acted often against the constitution. The passivity of the Parliament was interpreted as a direct result of the political anomaly and allowed the imposition of Metaxa's dictatorship.
