Leadership Selection Methods and Party Types

Marco Lisi, André Freire, Oscar Barberà

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter addresses the relation between some ideological and organizational features and several leadership selection methods. The main hypothesis is that differences in ideology, party family, size, and other contextual factors such as the age of democracy (new and long established democracies) and time play a relevant role in explaining differences in the leadership selection methods adopted by political parties. The rationales linking each factor with the type of selectorate are detailed though six hypotheses in the theoretical framework. The results of the bivariate tests show the confirmation of most of the hypotheses, pointing out that ideological and (to a lesser extent) organizational features are relevant factors influencing party leadership selection methods. The chapter also finds that these factors are, in turn, shaped by the democratic trajectory of the country and, more broadly, by time.
