The article examines the possibility of correction of the activity of the political system defined in the framework of the concept of good governance. It is emphasized that for many transformational states of the contemporary world the need for self-restraint of political actors is urgent. The focus is directed on improving the effectiveness of political management through the concept of «good governance». It is noted that in the conditions of democratization the requirements for the transparency of the authorities of its responsibility and adequacy of the decisions made increased. It is argued that in a democratic political process, public experts are beginning to play an increasingly important role. The importance of informatization of the process of civil self-directness is established. The representation of political preferences in political management is analyzed. The role of denationalization and deformation of the processes of political management in the processes of appearance of subjects of political management is explained.Also argued, that the content of the identification of the actors` function of the political management in the countries of political transformations is proved. The incomplete institutional capacity of political players is revealed. The significance of the transformation of modern political management subjects into collective participants in the adoption of strategic decisions is considered.The goal of the article is to identify the actors of political management, which are in the field of influence of the concept and relations «good governance». The task of the article is to identify those functional sectors of political management that are suitable for modernization through the means of «good governance» in transformational democracies.It is proved that an exhaustive interpretation according to which actors of political management must meet the normative requirements framework of good governance as a certain doctrine does not exist. In this case, actors must adhere to certain rules of standards and indicators that are changing in the contemporary world. Therefore, such subjects of political management as party and civic associations may manipulate the governance categories to ensure their reporting on election programs.The opinion presented, that «good governance» in a society of sustainable democracy is a dynamic structure of the assessment of the effectiveness of political management, which is based on current issues in the society main agenda.Revealed, that there is a situation in which institutions of political management should distinguish between the leadership institutions that provide an effective way for modernization and complex reforms. At the present stage, the situation seems to be that the principles of good governance require their communication substantiation and dissemination.A prerequisite for establishing the need for good governance reforms is the relative stability of democratic institutions. In the article established that the criteria for good governance for assessing political institutions are largely based on a certain managerial reality and the achievement of the primary standards of sustainability of democratic governance. They are: the frequency of elections, the legitimacy of the change of government, the availability of rules for political competition, free access of citizens to the decisions of the authorities, developed an independent law-enforcement and media systems.
