Political oligarchy

Other Names:
Military junta
Dictatorship by ruling clique

Political dictatorship, embodied in a ruling clique or military junta, maintains its rule through intimidation and repression, indoctrination and economic control. Political oligopoly tends to encourage existing social inequalities and is in itself elitist. It halts political and social development and is inherently unstable since members may form new cliques and oust the original one.
