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.

agree  MikeGarcia: O "un sistema bipartidista que funciona/de buen funcionamiento". Por cierto, el uruguayo, desde las épocas de Batlle, Haedo y el Consejo de Gobierno, es ejemplar!/Lo sé, pero como soy argentino y tengo 62 años, me acuerdo de ese ejemplo político y social!
