Analysis of Internal Party Democracy in Macedonia

Internal party democracy in consolidating democracies has always been a challenging issue. Moreover, party democracy in these countries has mainly been analyzed and valued against its contribution to the development of the overall democratic processes (Cular, 2010). In spite of the increased popularity of the term in the academic debate it seems that no universal definition exists that comprehensively explains the concept nor there a recipe prescribing how should the implementation of democratic principles within the parties be managed in practice
