Abstract: This thesis studies the impact of forms of government and electoral rules on public spending. The author provides necessary knowledge base about political institutions in the first part of his thesis. Later, he introduces a theoretical model of government spending involving electoral rules in parliamentary democracies in which coalition governments have higher spending than single party governments. Moreover, government spending is affected by electoral rules only indirectly. The author supports these predictions using empirical evidence in the last part of his thesis.
