English term or phrase:working two-party system
Growing prosperity after 1850 contributed to the expansion of democracy in Western Europe. Countries passed laws allowing all adult males to vote. Prime ministers began to answer to a group elected by the people, such as a parliament, instead of to the king. This principal was known as ministerial responsibility. Mass political parties formed and looked for ways to appeal to voters. Great Britain had a working two-party system: the Liberal Party and the Conservative Party.
