It begins by briefly reviewing the political process from 1945 to 1987, with particular attention to South Korea's democratic experiments, and then discusses how the old and new cleavages-that is, the cleavages of government versus opposition, and of regionalism-have shaped electoral choice in elections during the democratization period. The paper also discusses the role played by regional cleavages, which have continued to prevail in electoral contests since 1987, within the current presidential system of government in South Korea.
