    It seems like party-switching (Hiccup type #2) is much more common in Denmark, both in the parliament (at least in the last few years) and at the local level, than in other countries, at least in Northern Europe. I have never heard about anyone leaving his or hers party to become mayor or anything else here in Norway. Of course there is a lot of bargaining after the elections, so Hiccup type #1 can happen.

    @Norwegian: Interesting – we are so used to one or the other politician changing allegiances after local elections that it is surprising to learn that there are countries where this is highly unusual.
