UD

  • Political parties without clear ideologies.

  • Mainstream political parties are composed of competing factions (corrientes).

  • Highly personalized around faction leaders which are elected in primaries.

  • Political debate about electoral promises, more than programmes.

  • President cannot be re-elected.

  • Heavily clientelistic political system, Government as an Employment Agency.

  • No professional public administration in most ministries and institutions.

  • Poor management of Government.

  • No clear plans or policies.

  • Weak partisan control of Congress benches.
