Abstract

This paper analyzes the trajectories of the Venezuelan Party System after its collapse in 1998, guided by the hypothesis that: The Crisis of the Party System, since the rise to power of Chavismo in 1999, has external roots not intrinsic to the parties. In this sense, it is argued that the Crisis is a mechanism intentionally induced through State institutions, with the purpose of hindering the political representation of sectors not identified with the ruling party and its allies. Based on this hypothesis, the article describes the main tools used by Chavismo to promote political disaffection toward the opposition parties.
