The previous parliamentary election saw the right win a majority of seats in the Imperial Diet. However, the parliamentary election was won by the Socialist Party (Luthori) candidate Tom Jones with 2/3 of the votes. The Leighton Weston I Cabinet was formed and composed by the WR, the LCP and received the supply and confidence of the HPL and briefly the LDL.
This cabinet passed reactionary laws and economically liberal reforms. Prostitution, positive discrimination, gender reassignment surgery, homosexual marriage and abortion were banned during the last legislative term of office.
