The analysis will reveal that different contexts can result in different combinations of exogenous factors and the assumption of partisan self-interest, and that not all combinations of exogenous variables and partisan self-interest are conducive to institutionalization, but it will also show that the hypothesis was confirmed for the most part. The case studies will show that party system stability depends on how a pattern of interactions between parties institutionalizes in complex causal processes involving the assumption of partisan self-interest and exogenous variables.The electoral system structured vote maximization, and patronage (a by-product of Argentine federalism) became a useful tactic to secure party identification ... The panorama is not necessarily positive given that ARI, CC, PRO, and UNA are 393.
