The Second Cabinet of Philip Hopkins, officially known as the United Democrats Cabinet was the government coalition of the Holy Luthorian Empire. The cabinet was composed of the Communist Party of Luthori, White Rose, Justice Party of Luthori, Imperial Citizens Party and the Patriots Party. The Holy Luthori Church held on to the Office of the Imperator with Pope William I as its incumbent once more.
Representation Edit(4662 - 4665) (May 4665 - September 4665; after the 4665 election) (4665 - 4667; after the resignations)
Right from the start, some bills are passed by the opposition. In December 4663, welfare is enhanced with the Welfare Enhancement Act 4663.
The cabinet quickly manages to pass its program before the crisis and the resignations.
The White Rose and the Imperial Citizens Party resigned from their ministerial positions in early September 4665, in opposition to the Communist Party of Luthori's and the Justice Party of Luthori's broken promise to support the Patriots Party candidate, Lady Smith in the Imperatorial election.
