The attractiveness of the seemingly unattractive: An Israeli case. Pedahzur, A. and Brichta, A. Local Government Studies, 26(3):55–70, 2000. WOS:000166288500004

The aim of this article is to analyse what makes local government in Israel, which enjoys only minimal formal power; so attractive to many political parties and other organisations. The article offers a typology of the contestants in the local government electoral nl ena: old parties, pal-ties attempting to penetrate local government from parliament and parties using local government to enter parliament. The primary goal of every type is then identified: party formation, institutionalisation and survival. From this typology an explanatory model is developed which looks at the local government as a 'linkage agent' from which the national parties can mobilise various important resources thus achieving their primary goals.
