The Greek process of delegation is highly institutionalized and exhaustively regulated by the Constitution. The Constitution gives the cabinet strong stability and leverage over the parliament, creating one of the most powerful governments in Western Europe. Clientelistic networks are important in Greece and complicate the delegation chain.

Keywords:   authoritarian political tradition, cabinet stability, civil society, clientelism, constitutional reform, Greek-Orthodox church, institutionalization
