The aim of majoritarian systems is to create a parliamentary majority in order to produce an effective one-party government and thus government accountability. The aim of proportional systems is to include as many voices as possible, emphasizing the need for bargaining and compromise within parliament, government and the policymaking processes. Majoritarian systems are often called adversarial systems whereas proportional systems are called consensus systems (Lijphart, 1999; Norris, 2004). One important aspect of the electoral system is that it shapes the party system in the sense that majoritarian systems foster a two- or few-party system, whereas 20 Jesper Strömbäck proportional elections foster a multi-party system.

Thus, by empowering ordinary members, who are often more docile than the activists, the party leadership can actually gain power and increase the possibility of re-positioning or re-orienting the party. This development is however not uniform across parties or across countries, suggesting that some parties are more likely to be market-oriented than others. These are the parties which on an overall level are office- or vote-seeking rather than policy-seeking, where the intra-party power rests with the central leadership, the central staff and the ordinary members rather than the middle-level elite, where the ‘party in office’ is more important than the ‘party on the ground’, and which has an internal culture or tradition of granting the leadership a substantial autonomy.

A market-oriented party needs members of parliament with positive attitudes towards the market-orientation of the party, and no party can be market-oriented without at least a significant majority of the MPs having market-oriented attitudes. Furthermore, one of the crucial challenges for a market-oriented party is to deliver on its promises, staying market-oriented between elections (Lilleker and Lees-Marshment, 2005). Maintaining a market-orientation also requires the support of most although perhaps not all MPs.
