Competing faces : Intra-party diversity among French and Spanish MPs

Abstract : We propose a framework to explain intra-party ideological diversity by taking into account the allocation of power between the competing units composing political parties. Using the Twitter publications of Spanish and French Members of Parliament, we construct two measures of diversity, one within the parliament and one towards the extra-parliamentary national party. Preliminary results suggest the competition taking place between party units at the national and the local levels, that we call the intra-party vertical bargains, do matter to explain ideological diversity within political parties.
