 Divided Government in Poland

Show Summary Details


The chapter begins with an analysis of the frequency and form of divided government in Poland, which has been the rule rather than the exception since the fall of communism. It then examines the causes, which are largely attributable to Poland's comparatively short experience of democratic politics, and arise from structural and institutional factors rather than voter behaviour.
