Abstract

The structure of associations determines the development of political parties. The emerging of democratic parties in post-authoritarian countries depend on the flexibility of civil society in changing the form of associations during the period of authoritarian. This paper focuses on the developing democracy in South-East Asia and the North-Africa, especially on the commitment to democracy of the leaders of civil society behind political parties in Indonesia and Egypt. The conclusion will show that the more morally dedicated to democracy of the leaders has consequence to the more chance the nations to be democratic.
