Tounderstand how these political parties are structured they can onlybe divided into two parts, temporary and permanent organization.Temporary consist of short-term conventions at various levels andthey are terminated at the conclusion of National Party Convention.The permanent party structure comprises of individuals who lead,operate county, state and national parties all through the year(Kraemer, 2010). They comprise of the precinct, county, state chairsand finally the executive committees. The individuals ensure that theparty interest is served as well it remains competitive.
BothTemporary and Permanent political state organizations areinter-connected for instance members of permanent party organizationmay try to influence who will participate in the temporary partyorganization. The diagram below clarifies both organization and howvoters are involved in electing representatives in different levels(Ken Collier, 2014)
Primaryvoters are presented with ballots which is prepared by the countyparty which projects that their elections are constrained, theirfinal decisions are presented and then presented to them by permanentparty organization who are in place (Maxwell, 2015-2016). Primaryvoters, they have to do two things which affect both temporary andpermanent groups. First, they have to vote for their precinct andcounty chairs second, they have an option either to attend theprecinct convention which is done immediately after the elections atthe election place (Charldean, 2015-2016).
Oneearns a right to vote for party officials, party candidates and canhave the content of the party. After participating in primary partyvoting any individual who participate in party primary votes iseligible to vote during the convention. A series of partyconventions are held immediately after the party primary polls areheld, these conventions compliances of interested and involvedprimary voters and any person who participate in primary party votingprocess are legible to participate in the precinct convention (LyleBrown).
Thestructure has some merits. First, minority interest is protected inrising to power thus it preserves the voice of the whole country to agreat for instance interest of minority people such as farmers andthose at remote places ethnicity have a chance to raise to powerhence democracy is practiced in large (Harmel, 2016). Second, thesystem facilitates a two party system thus creating stability sinceit generalizes platform rather than focusing on specific issues. Italso directs power to state since voter are given the power to electdelegates who represent their voices as well as maintainingrepresentative forms of governance (Charldean , 2015).
Onthe other side, the system also has demerits which hinder thisprocess to be successful, one of a favorite candidate of majority mayfail to win the elections since smaller states may have a huge numberof delegates which may sound to others not to be democratic. It isalso complicated hence discourages people from voting since a popularvote is a simple termed as a simple vote. They are many progressivesteps to be followed while people may feel that their votes are notput in consideration and this motivates them not to vote
Insummary, temporary organization consist of party supporters who areinvolved in electing candidates. Mobilizing voters support in primaryand general elections competition to win a political power. Permanentparty organization is managed by Faith small group selected bytemporary party organization who conduct daily basis party businesson and off elections.
Thereis a distinction drawn between the organizations which manage eachparty on an ongoing basis and there is an organization which existstemporarily during an election period. This system allowsdecentralized government system which is organized from thegrassroots where the voters select delegates.
