New coalition era in the making

Postby Aristotle » Sat Dec 12, 2020 2:47 pm

The past few sessions of Parliament have been run by the Beluzia Renewal Party as a minority government, since the demise of the Beluzia Kingship Party which had previously formed a coalition with the BRP.

The BRP continues to hold the most seats in Parliament, but the UBWP party has won back the Presidency from the BRP and both the UBWP and the DSC have won one State each to the BRP's three states.

In keeping with these election results, the BRP is seeking to form a coalition government consisting of all three parties.

The process has begun of agreeing a fair split in cabinet positions, and negotiating which particular positions each party would prefer.

The expectation is that the new coalition will be formed soon and we will embark together on a new government for the betterment of Beluzia.

The latest election has again resulted in the Beluzia Renewal Party holding the most parliamentary seats, but without an outright majority.

In a new initiative of inter-party co-operation, the BRP has presented a Bill to Parliament consisting of three proposals which the PAL party included in its pre-election manifesto.

Having won one of the states in the election, the PAL is apparently deemed to be deserving of some representation of their policies in the setting of the legislative agenda of the nation.

Whether this is the first step towards a more formal BRP/PAL coalition remains to be seen.

The last two elections have been a two-horse race between the UBWP and their long time colleagues in the BRP.
Extraordinarily, both 4868 and 4872 elections resulted in exactly the same number of seats for each party - with only a difference of 4 seats between them.

It remains to be seen if the UBWP will renew the practice established by the BRP of attempting to reflect the clear divisions within the electorate by forming coalitions based on relative number of seats and by the number of states won. At the moment the UBWP is clinging to power on the basis of those 4 extra seats.

Once again the election was a closely fought battle between the BRP and the UBWP in 4876.
However, on this occasion the former party won by a narrow majority of six seats and has resumed government.

A few other opposition parties now exist in Beluzia, so it will be interesting to see if any of them can prevent the next election from being another two horse race.
