This chapter examines the growth of minority presidents since the Third Wave of democratization, and the propensity of minority presidents to form cross-party coalitions. It introduces the definition of coalitions that is used throughout the book, and it discusses how this definition differs from extant analyses of coalitions in presidential and parliamentary systems. It considers how the study of coalitional presidentialism engages with broader debates in the comparative presidentialism literature about issues of conflict and coordination in legislative–executive relations. It also summarizes what is already known about coalitional presidentialism, and builds on the extant literature to introduce a multi-dimensional understanding of coalition management: the ‘presidential toolbox’.

Keywords:   presidentialism, coalitions, democracy, Juan Linz, hybrid regimes
