 ipedia.com: Two-party system Article   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Two-party systems naturally get installed when the voting system used for elections discriminates against third or smaller parties, because the number of votes received for a party in a whole country is not directly proportional to the number of seats it receives in the country's assembly/assemblies.
The two parties that dominate thus have an incentive to keep the rules as they are, so as to prevent electoral losses to smaller parties.
Smaller parties will be unrepresented, they will not receive a number of seats in the country's assembly that reflect the number of votes received for them (and therefore the amount of support for them).

 Liberian Political Culture: The State, Civil Society, and Political Culture   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
A somewhat more expansive view of politics looks beyond leaders, governmental systems, and parties to consider the importance of civil society (the complex of relationships and organizations such as the media, lobby groups, business organizations, religious and civic assemblages, educational institutions, and interest groups) that seek to influence, but not actually run government.
Public office, political parties, military systems, educational institutions, businesses, the media, and religious establishments will again be used as tools to promote and demonstrate hierarchy, order, patronage, deference, status, and intolerance.
In Liberia, political culture has dictated that government, political parties, the military, schools, businesses, the media, and churches are shaped by values of order and hierarchy that bolster the system of patronage.

 Mark Melara's Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Due to the absence of a socialist party in the history of American politics, with the exception of Eugene Debs, the concept of ideology has been hard to grasp.
Tocqueville argues, "The parties by which the Union is menaced do not rest on principles, but upon material interests." American politics, as I said earlier, have been known to be interest driven, yet Gerring supports that self-interests can be converted into ideologies.
Gerring states, "the party was enamored of free trade, free markets, laissez-faire, industrial development, philosophical individualism, and the task of protecting civil liberties and civil rights." (161) To combat the Nationalist Republicans of the era, these Democrats were highly supportive of antistatism.

A referendum can be called in order to abrogate totally or partially a law, but only at the request of 500,000 electors or five regional councils.

The facultative referendum is the most usual type of referendum, and it is mostly carried out by political parties or by interest groups.

The BJP, the single largest party and biggest constituent of the victorious National Democratic Alliance (NDA), which has now won over 302 seats out of the 538 which have gone to the polls already, gets the first chance to to have their ideology aired.
But there is also no doubt that it leaves the person or his party free to use the appeals of caste, religion, language etc. up to the day elections are notified, and then rely on the associations which he has already formed in the minds of the voters to deliver the votes.
It is the image of the BJP as a party rooted in the traditions of Bharat, its principled stand on national and international affairs and a firm refusal to compromise with any humiliation to the nation that has made it so popular with large sections of nonresident Indians.
