Abstract [en]

Comparing eight post-communist semi-presidential systems (Bulgaria, Croatia, Lithuania, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Ukraine, and Russia), comprising a total of 65 instances of intra-executive coexistence between 1991 and 2007, this article asks to what extent and in what ways president–cabinet conflicts increase the risk of pre-term termination of governments. Previous studies of intra-executive conflicts in semi-presidential regimes have mainly been occupied with explaining why conflicts occur in the first place, and neglected the question of how such conflicts are actually related to political outcomes. The present empirical investigation demonstrates that the occurrence of intra-executive conflict in transitional semi-presidential systems is likely to produce high rates of cabinet turnover.

Democracy or Presidential Dictatorship? Constitutional Pathways in Post-Communist Countries

 

While authoritarian presidents prevail throughout the post-Soviet region under strongly president oriented constitutions, democracy according to parliamentary principles triumphs in Central Europe. This article discusses the constitutional pattern among the post-communist countries on the basis of two general questions: First, how can we explain that strong presidential constitutions are dominant throughout the post-Soviet region whereas constrained presidencies and governments anchored in parliament have become the prevailing option in Central Europe? Second, and interlinked with the first question, why did so many post-communist countries (in the post-Soviet region as well as in Central Europe) choose neither parliamentarism nor presidentialism, but instead semi-presidential arrangements characterised by a directly elected president provided with considerable powers coexisting with a prime minister? The analysis suggests that both historical-institutional and actor-oriented factors are relevant for grasping these questions. Key factors have been the type of regime transition, pre-communist era constitutions and leaders, as well as short-term economic and political considerations. With different strength and in partly different ways, these factors seem to have affected the actors’ preferences and final constitutional compromises.
