External Political Efficacy

External political efficacy:  “Beliefs about the responsiveness of governmental authorities and institutions to citizens demand” (Niemi et al, 1991: 1408), thus it represents a subjective perception of the role of citizens in general within the political system. People with high level of external political efficacy feel that the political system and political actors within it listen to ordinary people and make possible for them to exert influence on political processes.
