Abstract This dissertation explores individual evaluations of party issue competence in 24 national legislative elections. It shows the crucial role of competence in the voting process. Voters care about issues and want them handled by competent parties. This is an important finding for democratic systems as issue-based voting produces parliaments where the congruence between citizens and representatives is high.
