This chapter addresses the causes of low confidence in political parties and assemblies in the Andes. It argues that state deficiencies and the politicization of these shortcomings by competing parties are the primary causes of the crisis of democratic representation and contends that state deficiencies are central to understanding failures of democratic representation well beyond this region. This chapter also investigates why some agents of democratic representation have become discredited in the Andes.
