Answer ONE (1) of the following questions in your post from Gallagher, et al. (Chapter 7),
Question #1: The authors select the party systems of nine countries to analyze in this chapter.

Pick a particular party, describe it, and provide a short discussion of its general goals and electoral fortunes.
Question #2: Why do you think that the party system in the Netherlands is as difficult as it is? What do the authors think?
Question #3: In this country, the terms “Left” and “Right” are generally associated with the Democratic and Republican parties respectively. What do these terms mean in Europe? Are the main U.S. parties comparable with parties in Europe in terms of their ideologies and policies?
