Could you define ‘selectorate’ and ‘ejectorate’? The paragraph in which these terms are used is quite difficult to read, and I do not know what they refer to. Thanks!
Selectorate: People who select the leader
Ejectorate: People who don’t.
In the Soviet Union, the selectorate was the Politburo Standing Committee. In Egypt and Myanmar the selectorate is a group of generals. In the US the selectorate are voters in swing states.
Thanks for the feedback.
I was under the impression that ‘Ejectorate’ refereed to people who had some ability to remove leaders, e.g. through coups?
