Poroshin A. V. Influence of the Constitutional Design on Longevity
of Single-Party Dominance
The article considers the question of the constitutional design influence on longevity
of single-party dominance. Depending on the way the authorities are formed, regimes
are divided into two categories – parliamentary and presidential. Based on studying
theoretical prerequisites concerning differences between parliamentarism and presidentialism
in terms of the influence of a dominant party on election results, ideological
identification of power and opposition, complexities in organizing electoral campaigns,
the author suggests a hypothesis that parliamentary regimes are more durable.
However, one-way ANOVA test has shown no statistically significant differences between
parliamentary and presidential regimes in durability of single-party dominance.
Key words: dominant party; constitutional design; parliamentarism; presidentialism.
