  • Brexit or Corbyn' Campaign and Inter-Election Vote Switching in the
           2017 UK General Election
    • Authors: Mellon J; Evans G, Fieldhouse E, et al.
      Pages: 719 - 737
      Abstract: The 2017 UK General Election saw the collapse of UKIP and an unusually influential campaign that saw Labour improving from a likely historic defeat to almost pulling level with the Conservatives, denying Theresa May a parliamentary majority. We argue that the election should be understood in two phases: first from 2015 to the start of the election campaign, and second the campaign itself. The former period was characterised by strong switching along Brexit lines, with 2015 UKIP voters defecting heavily to the Conservatives following the outcome of the EU Referendum, which had enabled the Conservatives to make credible promises on immigration. Concurrently, many 2015 Labour supporters had defected to other parties or were undecided. The campaign then saw Labour winning voters from all sources, but particularly from previously undecided voters. While campaign vote flows were not as strongly related to Leave/Remain votes, 2015–2017 switching as a whole was heavily influenced by the EU referendum choices. We conclude that 2017 was indeed a ‘Brexit election’, but the campaign is better understood as a general rise in support for Labour resulting from Corbyn's appeal relative to that of Theresa May, particularly among the party’s own 2015 voters who had defected before the campaign.

  • Democratic Legitimacy or Regional Representation: Support for Upper
           Chamber Reform in Scotland and Quebec
    • Authors: Medeiros M; Bol D, Nadeau R.
      Pages: 738 - 759
      Abstract: This article studies support for upper chamber reforms in multinational countries. In his seminal work on the topic, Lijphart argues that the upper chamber can be used to accommodate minority groups. However, to date, we still know very little about the perception of minority populations of this institution. We explore this topic building upon an original survey experiment conducted in Scotland and Quebec, where there has been a recent debate about reforming the upper chamber. The results demonstrate that the national minorities in the UK and Canada strongly support a reform of the upper chamber. Also, we find that a reform that would increase the democratic legitimacy of the institution is more popular than one that would foster the regional representation of the minority group, even among respondents who report a strong regional identity.

  • Answering the West Lothian Question' A Critical Assessment of
           ‘English Votes for English Laws’ in the UK Parliament
    • Authors: Gover D; Kenny M.
      Pages: 760 - 782
      Abstract: In 2015, the UK House of Commons adopted new procedures known as ‘English Votes for English Laws’ (EVEL). This article evaluates whether EVEL has succeeded in answering the West Lothian Question, a constitutional anomaly arising from the asymmetrical character of governance in the UK. After outlining the historical background against which EVEL emerged as a supposed solution to this iconic question, the article explains how the 2015 reform works, and proceeds to assess its operation during the 2015–2017 parliament. It concludes that these new procedures appear to have overcome the main practical and constitutional obstacles associated with this type of reform, but they have, so far, failed to provide meaningful English representation at Westminster—particularly in relation to supplying England, and its MPs, with an enhanced ‘voice’.

  • ‘Designing for Democracy’: The 2016 Sir Bernard Crick Lecture,
           University of Sheffield Given by the Rt Hon. John Bercow MP, Speaker of
           the House of Commons on Thursday 27 October 2016
    • Authors: Bercow J.
      Pages: 845 - 852
      Abstract: Thank you very much indeed for that introduction and to Matt Flinders for this invitation. It is always a pleasure to be here at Sheffield University which has a richly deserved reputation for its academic excellence in many spheres but especially in government and politics. That status started to be acquired with the impact that Sir Bernard Crick had on his discipline while a professor here and it is so right to celebrate through this lecture his success and the building blocks which he put in place. Being invited to do so, however, does put a certain pressure on the person chosen for the task to produce something worthy of an association, however distant and tangential, with Sir Bernard. I will do my best with this daunting challenge.

      Abstract: Parliamentarians greatly differ with regard to the amount and quality of their work in parliament. Students of legislator behaviour mostly view Members of Parliament (MPs) as ‘single-minded seekers of re-election’, which is often argued to be the motivation for carrying out various activities. However, less attention has been paid to what extent MPs’ efforts pay off at the next elections. The special section introduced here addresses the question if the type and volume of parliamentary activities carried out by legislators have any effect on their electoral prospects. In other words, do parties and voters take MPs’ activity record into account when deciding on the re-election and the re-selection of an incumbent' To shed some light on this topic, we bring together students of legislative and electoral behaviour from all parts of Europe. Our general aim is to disentangle the necessary conditions for personal accountability to work in representative democracies.

  • Productivity and Reselection in a Party-based Environment: Evidence from
           the Portuguese Case
    • Authors: Borghetto E; Lisi M.
      Pages: 868 - 887
      Abstract: Portugal is a crucial case when studying candidate reselection in a party-dominated setting. While we expect the productivity of Members of Parliament (MP) to be strongly associated with reselection, it should not affect the position of reselected representatives on the party list. These expectations are tested using data on MPs' parliamentary activities across eight years (from 2007 to 2015), while controlling for alternative hypotheses. Although the two main hypotheses are confirmed, we found that both electoral vulnerability and district magnitude condition the effect of MPs’ productivity on reselection. Overall, the results are in line with the literature on reselection and suggest that other factors, such as party loyalty, may be germane to the understanding of the reselection process in Portugal.

  • Not All Roads Lead to Rome: The Conditional Effect of Legislative Activity
           on Reselection Prospects in Italy
    • Authors: Marangoni F; Russo F.
      Pages: 888 - 907
      Abstract: The literature shows that, on average, electorally vulnerable Members of Parliament (MPs) are more active than their colleagues. This article investigates whether parties have an incentive to reselect active MPs in a county with a closed-list electoral system. Being active is usually a way to increase one’s visibility among the constituency. We argue that parties have incentives to reselect active MPs only when they believe that voters pay attention to the qualities of individual candidates. The Italian case is a perfect case to test this argument because the attention paid by voters to individual candidates varies significantly between the northern and southern regions. Our empirical analysis reveals that being active leads to a higher probability to be re-selected only in regions where the style of representation is personalised.

  • Do Personalised Campaigns Hint at Legislator Activities' The (Lacking)
           Relationship Between Campaigns and Legislator Behaviour in Hungary
    • Authors: Papp Z.
      Pages: 908 - 929
      Abstract: Campaigns, especially the level of personalisation is often perceived as a common tool for gathering extra votes. It may carry the promise of the representatives’ tendency to deviate from the party line and focus on more particularistic activities such as constituency service. The main question of this article is whether we can expect MPs who personalise their campaigns to behave differently when elected than those following the party line during election time. I combine the Hungarian data from the Comparative Candidates Survey from 2010 with legislative data from the 2010–2014 parliament to test if more personalised campaigns culminate in a greater willingness to desert the party line at roll-call and a larger likelihood of representing constituency interests in parliament. Multivariate models indicate that personalisation has only a moderate effect on legislator attitudes and behaviour: campaigns are indicative only to how legislators perceive their jobs, and not how they actually carry out their tasks. Results suggest that even if voters had perfect information, they would not be able to infer how elected candidates are likely to behave when elected to office, which greatly challenges their ability to elect ‘good’ representatives.

  • Parliamentary Activity, Re-Selection and the Personal Vote. Evidence from
           Flexible-List Systems
    • Authors: Däubler T; Christensen L, Linek L.
      Pages: 930 - 949
      Abstract: In this article, we analyse how the degree of parliamentary activity affects both individual MPs’ performance in the candidate selection process within the party and their popularity with voters at the electoral stage. We expect that parliamentary work of MPs matters less for voters’ evaluations of MPs because of limited monitoring capacities and lower salience attached to this type of representation. The empirical analysis uses data from recent elections in the Czech Republic and Sweden. During the analysed period, these countries further personalised their flexible list electoral systems. Our results suggest that parties hold MPs accountable mainly through the threat of non-re-selection rather than by assigning them to a promising list position. While there is no evidence that voters consistently reward MPs’ effort, the case of the Czech elections in 2010 shows that they may do so if context draws attention to individual MPs’ work.

  • The Electoral Value of Constituency-Oriented Parliamentary Questions in
           Hungary and Romania
    • Authors: Chiru M.
      Pages: 950 - 969
      Abstract: Drawing on a unique data set that combines legislative behaviour data and electoral results at two elections in Romania (2008, 2012) and one in Hungary (2014), the study assesses the overall electoral value of parliamentary questions dealing with local issues. Our multivariate regression analyses illustrate that the effect of constituency questions is distinguishable from that of the overall parliamentary effort of the MPs. Constituency questions brought Romanian MPs significantly more votes at each of the last two elections. In Hungary, where the scope for a personal vote was much more limited at the analysed elections, no effect is found.

  • UK Political Parties’ Youth Factions: A Glance at the Future of
           Political Parties
    • Authors: Rainsford E.
      Pages: 783 - 803
      Abstract: After a long decline in membership in political parties across Western democracies, parties in the UK have seen an upsurge, especially in young members. Surprisingly, few studies have explored young members of political parties. This article addresses this gap and examines the following: Who are the young party activists' What do they think about politics' What are their motivations for political participation' This article draws on a unique dataset of activists in the three main parties youth factions in the UK. It finds that the youth faction activists have very similar socioeconomic backgrounds, perceive themselves to be politically effective and hold quite positive views about politicians. The analysis also shows that these young people do not consider their youth faction to be the only way for them to influence politics and are not self-interestedly motivated—that is, joining to begin or advance a political career. Finally, the article proposes improvements as to how political parties, and their youth factions, engage with young people in order to secure their future viability.

  • Political Roots of Religious Exclusion in Turkey
    • Authors: Nefes T.
      Pages: 804 - 819
      Abstract: Do perceived political threats lead to religious exclusion' This study explores the political rationale of the exclusionary attitude towards non-Muslim minorities in Turkey. It relies on a qualitative content analysis of the discussions on the Armenian, Greek and Jewish foundations in the Turkish parliament in the 2000s. While doing so, the research brings together the academic literatures on the perception of religious minorities in Turkey with the group threat perspective. The findings show that the exclusionary statements about the non-Muslim minorities are often justified by suspecting them as potential plotters of the dismemberment of the country. The article concludes that to achieve an inclusive political culture in Turkey, it is imperative to understand the perceived national security threats. It also underlines that parliamentary debates constitute an ideal resource for research, which deserves greater attention.

  • Seeking Evidence for a Welsh Progressive Consensus: Party Positioning in
           the 2016 National Assembly for Wales Election
    • Authors: Wall M; Williams S.
      Pages: 820 - 844
      Abstract: This article provides a detailed analysis of the policy positions advocated by the five political parties that won seats in the 2016 elections to the National Assembly for Wales (Welsh Labour; Plaid Cymru; the Welsh Conservatives; United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) and the Welsh Liberal Democrats). It takes advantage of a unique dataset of party positions and justifications created for a Voter Advice Application website that ran during the election campaign: www.wales.electioncompass.org. The data collected reflects the responses of senior policy officers within each party to a series of 35 policy questions. This dataset is used to estimate the extent of party disagreement across each policy question as well as to create a matrix of inter-party similarity. These quantitative findings are supplemented by a discussion of the positional justifications proposed by the parties to the project.
