  • Descrição: In the 1990s, political parties in Russia suffered from their under-development. By contrast, in the 2000s they became major actors in the electoral and parliamentary arenas, both at the national and sub-national level. However, party competition-the very heart of democratic politics-virtually disappeared in Putin's Russia. Instead, all political parties became effectively controlled by the Kremlin and incorporated into the formal and informal hierarchy of Russia's government. While the major opposition parties were about to become extinct, the party of power, United Russia (Edinaya Rossiya), overwhelmingly dominated the landscape of party politics. Still, by the end of Putin's second term Russia's political regime combined some elements of both personalist and party-based authoritarianism. I will analyse the formation of the new party system in Russia in the 2000s, with a special emphasis on the role of political elites and institutional engineering in the building of the dominant party and centralised control. The prospects for a party-based authoritarian regime in Russia are also discussed. Adapted from the source document.
