Chapter
  • 111 Downloads

Abstract

The Congress type of consociational party operates within a multiparty system and consists of factions and/or subnational party units that represent socio-cultural constituencies. The cases that most closely approximate this model are the Congress Party in India and the Liberal Party in Canada. Both countries are federal states, thereby allowing for a more precise analysis of the relationship between consociational parties and federations.
