Resumen

TURNER, BRIAN. Paraguay: Colorado Party returns to power. Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2014, vol.34, n.1, pp.249-266. ISSN 0718-090X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-090X2014000100012.

2013 was notable for the national electoral campaigns, followed by the April elections, the beginning of a new legislative period in July, and the establishment of the new administration under President Horacio Cartes of the Colorado Party. The return to power after five years by the Colorado Party put an end to the novel but failed and defeated government of the opposition parties. Paraguayan political institutions appear largely unchanged since 2008, when the Colorados left power, and the party itself remains a collection of factions fighting for control of state resources. Change in the political culture since 2008 however may make the gap between social demand and the capacity of the government to respond. This essay assesses whether the new government can adapt to the evolving political culture to more effectively address society's demands.

Palabras clave : Paraguay; elections; President Cartes; Colorado Party; exclusionary development.
