Martz focuses on presidential candidate selection in Venezuela and Colombia to explore the hypothesis that prevailing political party elites seek to preserve their organizational domination even while voicing rhetorical commitment to grass roots participation. He concludes that both informal and institutional mechanisms mirror the continuing determination of party elites to finesse popular demands for internal party democratization.
