How do parties, legislatures and the presidency interact, in particular when it comes to the legislative veto power of the president or the portfolio allocation between executive and legislature. Furthermore, what are the circumstances that allow presidents and legislatures to influence party institutionalization and what effect has that on core features of the political system (for example the election of the president or the end of his/her term)? To engage with these research questions, this panel brings together a group of scholars that approach these questions about the intertwined relationship between presidents, parties and legislatures from different regional and methodological perspectives. By presenting individual case studies, for example on Latvia as well as comparative studies on historical developments, the individual papers will show how the presidentialized parties can be an important political factor during the term of the legislature and the presidency as well how the relation between presidents and the strength of parties impacts regime stability, modes of governance but also legitimacy and accountability of the political system.
