dc.description.abstractThis paper provides a theoretical model of party competition in a heterogeneous electorate.The latter consists of numerous groups of dominant-issue-voters who base their voting decisionprimarily on one issue of the political agenda. Parties follow a lexicographic objectivefunction, aiming to gain power at minimum programmatic concessions. The emerging patternof movement in policy platforms is fundamentally different to the concept of convergenceproposed by the spatial theory of voting. Rather than the centre of the scale of policy preference,its extreme ends, occupied by dominant-issue-voters, attract the policy platforms. Thedifference in policy platforms is not reduced. The conclusions are found to be compatible withsome major empirical findings of the Manifesto Research Group.en_US
