The article is concentrated on the question whether minority government can be regarded as a crucial element of a stable political system. In Polish literature, it is usually considered as a negative phenomenon that arises from excessively broad spectrum of parties in the parliament and causes disintegration of the political system, while e.g. Scandinavian countries found it to be benefi cial for the stability and effi ciency of the political scene. Therefore, if it were to be regarded as a factor behind the political crisis, the only conclusion would be that those countries struggle permanently with such diffi culties, but the history shows that they do not. The author also attempts to compare the practical experiences of implementing and functioning of such model to the sphere of ideologies, to determine whether a minority government is not, in fact, one of the most profound means of practicing democracy.
