Title: The Role of Electoral and Party Systems in the Development of Fiscal Institutions in the Central and Eastern European
Countries
Abstract
The literature on fiscal institutions has established a connection between the design of fiscal institutions and a country's political fundamentals. The paper includes a review of the party and electoral systems in the Central and Eastern European countries (the CEECs) and then reaches conclusions on what modes of fiscal governance ('commitment', 'delegation', 'fiefdom') these countries should have developed based on their political fundamentals. Two major conclusions stand out. First, all of the countries have multi-dimensional social cleavage space which, together with the dominance of proportional electoral systems, suggests diverse party systems. This is a recipe for multi-party governments. Indeed, coalition governments have been dominant in the CEECs suggesting in turn that the majority of these countries should be leaning towards commitment approach. Second, the collapse of communism and consequent social changes led rather unsurprisingly to a certain political turmoil. This was evident especially during the first half of the 1990s. Some countries were affected more than others. Party structures have been in a constant change and reforms in the electoral laws have not been uncommon resulting in some countries to frequent shifts between different government types. This suggests that these countries have not been able to develop a coherent way to tackle the common pool resource problem. The reality largely confirms these expectations. The results therefore indicate that no 'onesize-fits-all' solutions exist in fiscal management. Consequently, the design of such institutions should pay due attention to the political factors, alongside with the economic ones. The results indicate further that a certain degree of political stability is a prerequisite for stable fiscal conditions. [Urheber s. Copyright]

Title: Central and Eastern Europe in the 2004 European Parliament Elections
Title (other): A Not So European Event
Abstract
The first European Parliament elections in the new member states in Central and Eastern Europe demonstrated a profound paradox in terms of being a feedback process of European integration. At the elite level, the accession to the European Union has offered political parties and their leaders both new opportunities as well as a new set of issues with the emergence of a significant divide over the meanings of European integration. At the mass level, however, the first European Parliament elections were ignored by a vast majority of voters. This paper serves as a systematic analysis of the subject. Its objective is three-fold: to explain a lack of interest in the polls, to examine the domestic political dynamics leading to the elections and to consider the implications of the elections for the workings of the enlarged European Union. As for the prospects for European integration, it is important to note that one may no longer assume a supportive cross-party consensus in the new member states on the EU. Rather, popular antipathy towards the EU is expected to rise. [Urheber s. Copyright]

Title: Elections to the European Parliament 2004:
Title (other): Voter attendance and significance to the Polish electorate and political landscape
Abstract
Polish politicians are increasingly often referring to the prospect of next year's elections to the European Parliament. Voters, however, are still unaware of the fact that these elections are to take place. Only 27% of Poles know that they will be choosing their representatives to the European Parliament in general elections. The European Parliament plays only a minor role in the present institutional makeup of the European Union. Elections to the European Parliament do not entail any obvious political consequences. As a result, the significance of these elections to Western European politicians and voters is only secondary to national parliamentary elections. As a rule, they only play the role of a 'barometer' of the national political landscape, providing information on voter preferences that may later be used in national elections. Therefore, low voter turnout can be primarily attributed to the absence of political consequences of European elections, rather than to the rejection of the European integration ideal. Studies conducted with reference to current EU member states suggest that the following factors promote higher voter turnout in elections to the European Parliament: compulsory voting, concurrent national parliamentary elections, perceived weakness of domestic institutions and overall support for the country's membership of the EU. In Poland, owing to a very low assessment of domestic institutions and hopes placed in democratic institutions of the EU, as well as the fact that elections to the European Parliament will be an interesting novelty to Polish voters, one may expect a relatively high turnout. If European and national parliamentary elections are held at the same time, then even the opposite of the situation in Western Europe may occur: elections to the European Parliament might 'prop up' voter turnout at national parliamentary elections.

Title: Processus de démocratisation dans le monde arabe: Société civile et élections politiques
Abstract
Cette étude analyse les processus de réforme en cours dans le monde arabe à partir des élections en Égypte et au Maroc. Les dernières élections parlementaires dans ces deux pays indiquent que les consultations électorales ne sont ni une simple façade démocratique, ni un moment fondateur de la démocratie. Davantage, elles apparaissent comme partie intégrante de régimes autoritaires en transformation. Moment de réforme politique dont l'enjeu ne se limite pas au seul résultat, l'élection déclenche des dynamiques de mobilisation autour des urnes, dans la rue et dans la presse. Sa tenue affecte les acteurs qui participent directement à la compétition électorale (parti politiques, administration, électorat), mais aussi ceux qui participent à son observation et à la définition des règles du jeu politique. Les ONG de défense des droits politiques, certains mouvements sociaux et les juges structurent les processus électoraux en revendiquant l'application des normes démocratiques. Pour ces acteurs, les élections sont un point d'ancrage de leur activité. Les différents programmes d'aide de la communauté internationale, dont le Processus de Barcelone est un précurseur, constituent pour eux un cadre de référence. Mais les élections dans le monde arabe restent largement contrôlées par les coalitions au pouvoir. En même temps que les élections apparaissent plus pluralistes, le chef d'État préserve ses prérogatives, son emprise sur les processus politiques, assurant la continuité du régime. La modification des règles du jeu d'une élection à l'autre et l'investissement de multiples répertoires d'action qui ne se résument pas à la fraude sont les principaux obstacles aux challengers du pouvoir et aux acteurs de la société civile. Les entrepreneurs qui se présentent en tant que candidats « indépendants » profitent des élections « libéralisées ». Les partis d'opposition traditionnels sont les grands perdants de ces confrontations où l'obtention d'un siège coûte de plus en plu

Title: Trends in the EU-27 regarding participation of third-country nationals in the host country?s political life
Title (other): Tendances dans l'Europe des 27 concernant la participation de ressortissants de pays tiers à la vie politique du pays
d'accueil
Abstract
La participation de ressortissants de pays tiers à la vie politique du pays d'accueil a été une question fondamentale pour les organisations internationales au niveau européen. Le Conseil de l'Europe, ainsi que les institutions européennes, notamment le Parlement européen et la Commission, ont longuement et constamment soutenu l'idée d'élargir la « participation communautaire » aux ressortissants étrangers. Cependant, la décision finale quant à ce sujet dépend des États membres. Le Document préparatoire considère les récentes évolutions de cette question au niveau des États membres et cherche à identifier les tendances dans l'Europe des 27. Il s'attarde sur les droits de vote, l'accès à la citoyenneté, les conseils consultatifs et les lieux de dialogue, ainsi que la mesure dans laquelle la liberté d'association est accordée. L'auteur peut observer que, tandis que des progrès vers une participation plus importante sont réalisés, ces progrès sont non seulement lents, mais ils répondent rarement aux normes précédentes qui furent établies par les États membres nordiques précurseurs et par le Conseil de l'Europe. En ce qui concerne l'accès à la citoyenneté, il existe certains signes qui laissent supposer que les États membres européens sont sur le point d'imposer des critères plus restrictifs. Concernant les autres éléments évalués, il est plus difficile d'identifier des tendances, cependant, il semble qu'il existe encore beaucoup plus de possibilités de développement.[Parlement européen] | Participation of third country nationals in the host country's political life has been a core issue for international organisations at European level. The Council of Europe as well as EU institutions, notably the European Parliament and the Commission, have constantly and for quite some time supported the idea of opening up 'civic participation' to non-nationals. The ultimate decision in this matter, however, lies in the hands of member states. This Briefing Paper looks at recent developments on this issue at member state level and seeks to identify trends in the EU-27. It casts a closer look at voting rights, access to citizenship, advisory councils and arenas of dialogue as well as the extent to which freedom of association is granted. The author is able to observe that while progress towards more participation is made, this progress is not only slow, but often does not meet the previous standards established by pioneer northern member states and the Council of Europe. With regard to access to citizenship there are signs that European member states are on the verge of imposing more restrictive criteria. Concerning the other assessed elements, trends are more difficult to identify, however, it seems as though there is still more than enough room for further development.[European Parliament]

Title: EU Election Observation - Achievements, Challenges
Abstract
The deployment of EU Election Observation Missions (EOMs) has become a standard intervention of EU foreign policy over the last eight years. Since 2000, more than 50 EU EOMs have been deployed to Africa, the Middle East, Latin-America and Asia. The methodology of EU EOMs is being consolidated in line with international agreements in this field, but there is scope for further development of methodology e.g. observing e-voting, or the counting/aggregation/publication of results.

Title: Independent Candidates in National and European Elections
Abstract
Independent candidates remain marginal vote-getters in the vast majority of elections in which they compete. However, they do regularly win seats in legislative assemblies in a number of European countries, and occasionally achieve surprise victories in others. Half of the EU member states currently grant ballot access to independents in national legislative elections, while only a quarter of member states allow non-party candidates in European Parliament elections. Ballot access requirements for independents vary widely across EU-27 but tend to be more stringent for European elections than for national elections. Independent candidates perform better in systems with plurality rule or preferential voting compared to party-list PR systems. They win seats in single-member districts and low-magnitude multi-member districts. Although independents are expected to benefit from electoral rules that make politics more candidate-centered, the performance of non-party candidates does not depend on the modality of lists (open or closed). The vote for independents has elements of a protest vote. Voters who vote for independent candidates tend to be more critical of the government and less satisfied with the way democracy works in their country than party-voters. They are also less likely to feel close to any political party. When independent candidates are elected to office, they frequently join parties and parliamentary party groups. Thus, independence is often not a principled position but a temporary status resulting from circumstantial choices made by individuals competing for political office.

Title: Study on Performance Indicators for Electoral Assistance projects developed within the context of the EC-UNDP
Partnership on Electoral Assistance
Abstract
Support to elections includes electoral assistance programmes and European Union (EU) election observation missions. Although interrelated through their complementary activities, they are each independent. Electoral assistance is funded regionally while observation missions are implemented through centrally-managed funds from the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights.Electoral assistance may be defined as the technical or material support given to the electoral process. It may imply legal support to establish a legal framework for the elections. It may also take the form of a general input to the national electoral body, such as providing voting material and equipment, or helping in the registration of political parties and candidates and the registration of voters.
