ABSTRACT

Clientelism has survived, adapted, and emerged with new image in modernizing world. As government role has greatly increased in national economy, ruling party has had more advantage in clientelist political competition. Among politics scholars, such new condition has raised a hypothesis which argues more popularity of clientelism leads to more popularity of coalition government, but rather than debating whether clientelism really determines the popularity of coalition, it is more fruitful and interesting to question when and how inflated popularity of clientelism leads to coalition government. This article tries to explain this issue theoretically based on the case of 2004 and 2008 Mongolia's State Great Khural elections(Mongolia's parliamentary election). The finding of this research suggests that whether higher popularity of clientelism leads to more popularity of coalition government is conditional. It could occur when public resource centered clientelist exchange determines winner and loser in political competition.
