Abstract

The comparative literature on presidential politics has established that relations between the president and political parties are key to understand executive-legislative dynamics in semi-presidential and presidential regimes. Similarly, the literature on parliamentary systems confirms that indirectly elected presidents are often more than just figureheads in the process of government formation. However, we need much more research detailing how and in what ways president-party links operate in government formation. This panel brings novel theoretical perspectives and new empirical data to understand presidential influence over government formation and government survival across parliamentary, semi-presidential and presidential regimes. The panel covers both large-N and single-case studies representing different world regions and political contexts.
