This is not too surprising because the party systems in CEE have 16 H. Keman and F. Müller-Rommel been developing only for a short period of time and especially the legacy of authoritarian one-(Communist) party system has implied that, the Left and Right as well as the Progressive and Conservative party positions were less prolific than in WE (Marks and Steenbergen 2004).

Nevertheless, it is a real record, with more or less validity depending on the universality of agreement about what the party offerings mean in policy terms and the universality of policy motivated voting. Why might the policy position of the party that has attracted most votes in an election challenge the claim of the median-­ supported party to reveal the underlying majority preference?
