(p.36) 3 Who Are the Ministers?
Ideologues, Partisans, and Loyalists

How are the ministerial types operationalized and why? Who are the cabinet ministers under study? What are their professional and political profiles? Chapter 3 addresses all these questions by discussing the coding of left and right ministerial types, and the data collection process. Left-wing ideologues are defined as social democrats and former trade union officials. Left-wing loyalists and partisans are defined as low and high rank social democrats, respectively, with no background as activists in the trade union movement. Right-wing ideologues are defined as liberals or conservatives and former economists, bankers, executives, and businessmen. Right-wing loyalists and partisans are defined as low- and high-rank liberals or conservatives, respectively, with no economics and business background. Important comparisons among the types in terms of their professional, biographical, and political background are provided.
