Basing their concept on national-level political associations, the authors argue that there are 3 kinds of political associations which are basic in securing a centripetal sort of democratic governance: unitary (rather than federal) sovereignty, a parliamentary (rather than presidential) government, and a closed-list PR electoral procedure (rather than a single-member district or preferential-vote system).
