SANDOVAL M, Luis I. POLO: FIVE YEARS OF PARTISAN EXPERIENCE: The high cost of weakness Trends, leaderships, governments political practices in the pda. anal.polit. [online]. 2011, vol.24, n.72, pp.83-100. ISSN 0121-4705.

Polo Democrático is a young political party that experiences serious difficulties in its growth. Of such difficulties, some are endogenous and other exogenous. Gaining a fair understanding of the process experienced by the party in its short trajectory, in order to project a new phase and achieve its definite implantation in the political Colombian landscape, is a matter of the highest importance. The country needs better parties for a better society. The political project of democratic transformation, by means of civil fight that the Polo leads, is completely valid as an alternative option, as much in front of the traditional elites as of the valueless and nonviable perspective of the insurgent movements. Therefore, it is necessary that Polo Democrático overcomes the present crisis and transits from the fragile institutionality that today features to a stronger one, fit to accomplish its political project.

Keywords : Party; democracy; transformation; leadershi p; political ethos.
