(p.118) 7 Conclusion
German Electoral Politics

Geoffrey K. Roberts

Manchester University Press

This chapter addresses the question of whether electoral politics matter or not. It studies the effectiveness of the German mixed-member electoral system and the relevance of an electoral politics system where governments rarely change as an immediate result of the Bundestag elections. The chapter identifies some of the controversial aspects of the ‘permanent election campaign’ in Germany and the neglected function of elections, as well as studying the support levels for the German political system.

Keywords:   electoral politics, German electoral system, electoral politics system, Bundestag elections, permanent election campaign, neglected function, support levels
