Such a new climate requires party members who are delegates to be more accountable to parallel party bodies, thereby creating a horizontal line of authority in addition to the formalvertical- responsibility of delegates to their constituencies on lower tiers of the legislative system (now under greater control by lower level party organisations as well). These trends have also been facilitated by the lower number of delegates in recent years who are non-party members.
