Abstract

The first democratically elected Hungarian parliament, which served from 1990 to 1994, enjoyed a term of office that was exceptionally busy, yet it was one in which the newly elected MPs were learning their role. The results of the first systematic survey of their perceptions reveal how far Hungarian MPs adopted role orientations similar to those found in Anglo-American democracies. An examination of legislators' roles in the Hungarian parliament sheds light on both the comparative and the analytical utility of 'representational role' in the study of legislatures.
