The process of Lenin Enrolment (1923–1925) was a process in which there was a concerted drive to get more of the proletariat and workers into the Communist party, and become active in party affairs. This process started firstly as a means of social cohesion, but the rules of admission were virtually abandoned and 128,000 people were signed up within the three months prior to the pivotal 13th party Congress. Supporters of Leon Trotsky claim that Joseph Stalin used Lenin Enrolment for his own personal gain by placing his supporters in places of political power. However, no evidence has been found to support this hypothesis.
