About this book

Introduction

The authors present an authoritative account of the background to the elections, the preparations by the political parties, the unfolding campaign and the results, as well as of their short-term effects and their long-term implications. The fact that 1999 saw the first nation-wide contest involving proportional representation presented a special challenge to participants and observers alike.
