From Saint Sava to Milosevic – The Pantheon of (Anti)heroes in Serbian Presidential Election (2017)

Introduction There are different ways of gaining broad support during elections. The Serbian presidential election in May 2017 was of key importance for the then ruling camp. The incumbent prime minister Aleksandar Vučić decided to run for president to further strengthen his position in the country.

However, despite constantly criticizing the government and the prime minister in particular for violating the

The spatial pattern of voter choice homogeneity in the Nigerian presidential elections of the fourth republic

proximal places tends to be more homogeneous than across distances ( Shin, Agnew, 2007 ). Despite the efforts to characterise the voting pattern in Nigeria ( Ihonvbere, 1999 ; Olasile, Adebayo, 2016 ); Araba, Braimah, 2015 ; Lawal, 2017 ), the spatial pattern of voting that takes on a comparative perspective of all the elections in the fourth republic (1999 to date) has not been investigated. Thus, this study aims to analyse the pattern of voting and the effect of sociocultural factors in the Nigerian presidential elections from 1999 to 2015. Specifically, the study

Philosophical Root of Moderation Discourse in Iran’s Eleventh Presidential Election

Abstract

Moderation was a triumphant discourse of Iran's eleventh presidential election. It’s a new attitude in the political realm and most of the movements relate themselves to it and each one interprete their actions according to moderation. For clarifying this ambiguous trend, we should refer to its philosophical root. It seems that Aristotle is the first one who represented this theory. In fact, moderation is one of the main principles of Aristotelian ethics. Understanding this concept requires understanding the basic concepts of the intellectual and moral theory of Aristotle. Moderation is the center of his theory of virtue. According to this principle, all the moral virtues are intermediates and excess, and defects in the actions and emotions cause moral vices. This theory could be the best way to pass excess and deficiencies in Iran's political sphere.

The spatial distribution of high-season tourism in Poland: based on the records of the 2010 presidential election

The spatial distribution of high-season tourism in Poland: based on the records of the 2010 presidential election

The 2010 presidential election in Poland was held during the summer season when many voters were away from their place of residence. Data showing the numbers of visitors voting in particular districts were used to identify areas with high tourism intensity. Subsequent analysis showed a very strong concentration and polarization of tourism on the northern and southern margins of Poland and in several big cities.

Vote Transfers, Thwarted Voters and Newcomers in the 2009 Presidential Runoff in Romania

Abstract

This article investigates the role of thwarted voters and newcomers in setting the result of the December 6th, 2009 presidential runoff in Romania. For this purpose it employs panel survey data from the Romanian Election Studies, collected across three waves: pre-election, between the two rounds, post-election. Initially, it draws a picture of the main evolutions in turnout and vote between the first and the second round, with a special emphasis on vote transfers and risks associated to turnout and pro-winner overreporting. Then it analyzes the thwarted voters and their rationalities of making second-order electoral choices in the presidential runoff. The influence of campaign developments and long-term party/candidate preferences is assessed. Finally, the article investigates the profile of newcomers (people only voting in the runoff) and the mechanisms of political mobilisation in their case. A special attention is given to how newcomers make the electoral choice in the presidential runoff and to the influence of the campaign developments on that choice.
