Electoral systems and electoral coalitions: The case of the Post-Communist Countries

Jakub Šedo

The paper is focused on the electoral coalitions and different rules which might influence the presence of the electoral coalitions in the elections. Firstly, the influence of electoral thresholds is discussed if the presence of the threshold and threat of elimination of competing parties leads to higher share of the representatives who were nominated on the electoral coalition ballots. Secondly, different measures which disadvantage electoral coalitions are examined. Thirdly, the overrepresentation of the strongest party as a motivation for creation of the electoral coalitions is measured. Finally, the influence of the presence of the nominal tier is analysed.
