Party Arenas in Slovenia and Slovakia

Uroš Pinterič, Viera Žúborová,


This article is based on the comparative research of media- -indicated party positions in the so-called "left-right continuum" versus the position of political parties on this continuum, as determined by their programmes. The authors argue that media usage of left and right positioning has, over time, caused detachment of left/right attributes from political programmes. The study tries to show that in Slovenia and Slovakia there is a difference between "media" labels of the party positions and the latter's positioning on the basis of their programmes.
