One of the most important debates in public administration has been Political
attitudes and activities of bureaucrats and their impact on their performance
that has been studied in politics-administration dichotomy. In order to
prevent of curroption in public service public administration researchers
argue that administration should not involve in political patronage. Also
political officials should not do extensive political appointees in all of the
administrative levels. But we see that in developing countries, when winning
certain political patry, many of the public administrators were changed. This
paper purposes to argue the Cause of this process for politicization of the
public organizations and it’s influence on individuals performance and
behavior. In this regard, this research examined the effect of political
attitudes of bureaucrats on their organizational citizenship behavior (OCB).
The results showed that political attitudes have a significant correlation with
OCB and that the bureaucrats that belong to the ruling party exhibit more
OCB than others.
