After the resignation of Margaret Thatcher, Prime Minister John Major was swept into power in 1990, leading Britian through the Gulf War and the collapse of the Soviet Union. The Major premiership is now challanged by a reinvigorated Labour, and with a recession in full swing, many analysts predict that Neil Kinnock’s Labour will secure a majority in the upcoming election. Other parties are also seeking to take advantage of Major’s weak position, most notably the newly formed Liberal Democrats, successors to the now dead Liberal Party, seeking to present a new alternative to the 2 party system. Also in the race is the SNP under Alex Salmond, having slowly been picking up momentum throughout the entire 20th century, many Scottish nationalists hope that by taking advantage of the 1992 recession, the SNP can finally achieve a major electoral breakthrough. Can John Major defy the polls and a weak economy, campaigning as a popular war time leader, and re-establish tory rule for another decade, or will the British people have enough of Thacherite conservatism, bringing Labour and Neil Kinnock to power. You decide!

Coming off Macron’s victory in the 2022 presidential election, his alliance, Ensemble, is hopeful of maintaining their parliamentary majority in order to push Macron’s agenda through, but, Ensemble faces strong resistance from Jean-Luc Melenchon’s NUPES alliance, hoping to capitalize on unenthusiastic left wing Macron voters, and Marine Le Pen’s National Rally, hoping to dethrone Ensemble from the far right.

After Spain elected its most fragmented parliament ever in 2015, and the failure of the major parties to negotiate a coalition, a new election was called for in 2016, and with a stagnant economy, regional instability, corruption scandals and Brexit fresh in the mind of voters, it was anyones election to win. The main 2 contenders, as always, were the centre-right PP under Mariano Rajoy and the centre-left PSOE under Pedro Sanchez, but this time, the left wing Unidas Podemos alliance under Pablo Iglesias posed a real threat to the 2 party system, with some even predicting PSOE to fall to third place as the party bickers amongst itself. So, will the two party system survive? Will government deadlock continue? Will regional seperatism continue to make gains around Spain? Most importantly, who will become the new Prime Minister of Spain? NOTE: Spain uses the D’Hondt system, which does not exist in Prime Minister Infinity, however, it is encouraged that you use one of many available D’Hondt calculators to determine the final result.
Parties and Candidates:
People’s Party – Mariano Rajoy PSOE – Pedro Sanchez Unidas Podemos – Pablo Iglesias Ciudadanos – Albert Rivera Republican Left of Catalonia – Gabriel Rufian Democratic Convergence of Catalonia – Francesc Homs Basque Nationalist Party – Aitor Esteban Animalist Party – Silvia Barquero Basque Country Unite – Marian Beitialarrangoitia Coalicion Canaria – Ana Oramas Geroa Bai – Daniel Innerarity
