BENITO SANCHEZ, ANA BELÉN. The Politics of the Power: Alliances and Strategic Party Interactions in Dominican Republic. Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.3, pp.751-772. ISSN 0718-090X. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-090X2010000300008.
The objective of this paper is to suggest that in the "third Dominican transition" (the one of the democratic consolidation), emerges a specific type of plural Presidentialism characterized by the exchange and inter-party cooperation. These practices have been responsible for stability and democratic governability. This article presents the commitments (formal and informal) of the Dominican political elite and the institutional/partisan variables that support them.
