In the beginning, the existing administrative structures were maintained and they functioned for a while, based on the Hungarian legislation from 1886. Gradually, at the same time with the organization of the Controlling Council (“Consiliul Dirigent”) from Sibiu which temporarily led Transylvania until the 20th of April, 1920, decisions that brought the organization of the province close to the structures approved by the Romanian state administration were adopted.
