Алескеров Ф. Т., Благовещенский Н., Константинов М. В.
The problem of balancedness of the Russian Parliament during 2000 — 2003 is studied for the case when factions are defined as coalitions forming by closeness of MPs positions in two-dimensional space of political views. The analysis of distribution of MPs over clusters has shown that in majority of clusters the majority is formed from the MPs from the existing factions. It reveals high internal discipline of voting in the groups of MPs in the parliament. A new approach is given allowing visualize changes of factions positions in political space. This analysis shows the strong discipline of voting in the factions of Communists, Agrarians and Edinstvo.
