Three decades of the democratic period in Paraguay took place with the right-wing Colorado party dominating the executive and legislative branches. It was from its ranks that the gene came out. A. Stroessner, who established a long dictatorship in the country. At the beginning of the democratic transition in Paraguay, the foundations of the modern political system were laid. They established a barrier to the emergence of a new dictatorship, but failed to destroy the established informal socio-political and economic ties that retained the oligarchic power and dominance of the right-wing Colorado party. The absence of an influential force to form an active center-left political segment substantially narrows the range of the political spectrum of parties. Over thirty years of democratic development, Paraguay has achieved a steady state of electoral democracy.
