Sažetak

Having in mind the long evolution of constitutions and constitutional
politics and the universal appeal of the process of the interplay
between virtue and demagogy that occurs during presidential elections,
the author touches on several topics. The first are the standard
“dogmatic” comparative provisions regarding the election of the head
of state which the author looks into through the constitutional-legal
prism of the so called selection effect. As the institution of the president
of the republic exists in many constitutions and is thus among
the most significant institutionalized aspects of political and social
life of every country, the author focuses on the extent in which that
institution in the electoral context contributes to the affirmation of republicanism,
democracy and public sphere. The author concludes that
the election of presidents and the effects of electoral selection, among
other things, affect the process of political integration that ought to –
not only in Croatia but everywhere and due to a plethora of reasons –
promote the universally accepted ontological principles of contemporary
constitutional-democratic state.
