The basic structural cleavages of post-communist society should, according to Kitschelt /1992/ be aligned along two separate axes: the left-right awis and that of libertarianism-authoritarianism. The party systems in central and Eastern Europe were expected to structurate themselves along axes ranging from authoritarians and opponents of the market at one end and liberals and supporters of the market at the other.Where economic development was already advanced, as in the Czech Republic, many political parties would be concetrated at the market-liberal end of the scale. The results of this study show that in the Czech Republic both axes do exist and organise the political behaviour of voters, but that the left-rigt axis is clearly dominant.
