|Luthorian Conservative Party|
Fort Orange, Williams
Social Conservatism, Fiscal Conservatism
The Luthorian Conservative Party is a far-right political party in Luthori. The party advocates placing Luthorians before anything else, restoring the empire and more social policies. The party existed from 4586 until 4593. It then was recreated in 4693. The party dissolved quickly after this, in 4694, which led to the establishment of the Maker III Cabinet and also the Communist Revolution.
The party was revived a third time in 4729 by Tina Jackson and dissolved in 4771. During the second revival, the party led many cabinets with Tina Jackson and Ryan Smith. And was part of the national government for more than 20 years consecutively. In 4765, the party lost more than two thirds of its voters and reached only 5 % of the votes. This led to the dissolution of the party 6 years later.
It was revived again in 4777 by John Clay.
Foundation and dissolution (4586-4593) Edit
The party was initially founded in 4693. It had a moderate success immediately, gaining 10.66 % of the votes in 4586. It gained power for a short amount of time in 4589.
The LCP lost most of its voters after that in 4591 but saw a resurgence in 4593. After that, the party was dissolved
Refoundation and re-dissolution (4692-4694) Edit
100 years later, the party was refounded and had success immediately after its creation with 13.75 % of the votes.
The party then participated in the Weston I Cabinet.
An early election was called a year later where the LCP became the first party of Luthori with 25.38 % of the votes. Due to problems concerning the funding of the party, it was dissolved a few months after, letting the communists take power in Luthori.
Second refoundation (4728-4729) Edit
The party was refounded again in 4728 by Tina Jackson. With its strongly anti-socialist campaign, the party had a huge success and gained over 20 % of the votes in the 4729 parliamentary election. The party became the first party in Shipleyriding and Northiriding gaining over 35 % of the votes in those two regions. In other regions, the received less than 10 % of the votes.
T. Weston V Cabinet (4729-4734) Edit
The party gained the Internal Affairs ministry with Tina Jackson, the party leader occupying the post, as well as five other ministries. The government pursued a very liberal economic policy, as well as reactionary policies. The cabinet removed salary caps, the mandatory pollution standards, food and health safety regulations. The Weston Cabinet also passed socially conservative reforms, banning homosexual marriage, abortion excepted in cases of medical emergency, euthanasia and restored the military service.
In November 4731, due to the dissolution of a left-wing republican party, the pro-empire right gained a 2/3 majority and restored the Luthorian Empire. The country was renamed Holy Luthorian Empire, the President was replaced by the Imperator.
In February 4732, the National Assembly was renamed Imperial Diet, the Regions were renamed Duchies and the Prime Minister was renamed Imperial Seal Bearer.
This cabinet also saw an unprecedented presidential crisis between the government and the president Michael Hewitt from the Bloc of the Left.
First political force in Luthori (4734-4745) Edit
The 4734 election was the first test for the new far-right cabinet. The cabinet gained 4 seats compared to the previous election and received a majority of votes in all regions, except in Orange. The LCP saw its vote share increase significantly and became the first party with 28.81 % of the votes and 46 seats. The party gained votes in all duchies and even won 55.05 % of the votes in Shipleyriding. At the same time, the ally of the LCP, the White Rose lost 12 seats and was seen as the loser of the election.
Jackson I Cabinet (4734-4740) Edit
Following its electoral success, the party formed a cabinet with Tina Jackson as the prime minister: the Jackson I Cabinet. It pursued the neoliberal and reactionary policies of the previous cabinet. It de-regulated stock exchanges, increased retirement age, de-subsidized tuition and public transports. Open homosexuality was banned in the military and death penalty was restored. Public transport strikes also took place in 4738.
In the 4739 election, the party stays in the first position but declines heavily, only gathering 16.26 % of the votes, compared to 28.81 % in 4734. The party sees a loss of votes in all duchies. In Shipleyriding, the LCP stays the first party with 35 % of the votes. In Middenriding, the party loses its first place to the Communist Party while declining heavily. The Jackson I Cabinet therefore acts as a caretaker cabinet as the government lost its majority.
Following the dissolution of political parties that gained seats in the previous election and the political crisis that followed, an early election is called for 4740. The government parties are recovering some seats while the far-rgiht HLC becomes the second political force. The LCP gains 11 seats and increases its vote share by 6.91 %, reaching 23.17 % of the total votes. In Shipleyriding, the LCP regains an absolute majority of votes (52.48 %) and regains its first position in Middleriding.
Jackson II Cabinet (4740-4750) Edit
Following the dissolution of the Left for Progress and the Common Wealth Party an agreement is reached between the LCP, the WR and the LPL to form the Jackson II Cabinet.
The Jackson II Cabinet expanded death penalty removed economic regulations, privatised public services and finally banned abortion in all cases, continuing on the very conservative line of the previous cabinets.
In the 4745 election, the party loses votes and becomes the second party with 18.46% of he votes. In the regional elections, the party fares fery well in Shipleyriding, gaining 49.77 % and an absolute majority of seats with 51 seats out of 100. In other duchies, the party gained less votes, its results fluctuating between 4.24 and 17.20 % of the votes.
The Jackson II Cabinet is one seat short of a majority with 75 seats out of 150.
The cabinet surprisingly decides to stay in power which provokes demonstrations and critics from the opposition.
In 4747, the CPL, despite being part of the opposition, manages to pass a bill banning private schools, higher education institutions and nurseries.
The political crisis lasted 5 years until the Dalton I Cabinet was formed.
The successive elections see the LCP stagnating around 17 % of the votes.
14 months In the opposition (4750-4751) Edit
After a very long political crisis, in 4750, the Jackson II Cabinet is ousted from power and the short-lived Dalton I Cabinet takes power. The cabinet did not achieve anything as an early election was called before any bill could pass.
The 4751 election leads the LCP to govern again, this time with the White Rose and the LDP.
Smith I Cabinet (4751-4757) Edit
Ryan Smith becomes Imperial Seal Bearer. This cabinet was less active than the previous ones. Its main reforms are: mandatory vaccination for children, equality between men and women in the army and the legalisation of recreational drugs.
This cabinet is also marked by a Health Reform legalising abortion which was repealed two years later. Changes that provoked confusion.
Five years later, in 4756, the LCP keeps growing and the cabinet keeps its parliamentary majority.
However, negotiations between the parties fail and no other solution than an early election is found.
In July 4757, the Communist Party wins the election and the previous cabinet loses its majority. The LCP stays stable.
Participation in the Simeon I Cabinet (4757-4758) Edit
A new cabinet is formed with the Luthori First in 4757. It is short-lived because 4 months later, Luthori First changes its policies and decides to form a cabinet with the Communist Party led by Dwayne Loops.
Opposition to the national-communist cabinet (4758-4762) Edit
The cabinet is formed on 16 February 4758 following successful negotiations between the CPL and the The Purple Guard. The agreement is historical. The new policy of the cabinet is named "national-communism" by the two parties.
One month after the formation of the cabinet, a law legalising militias as a part of each political party is passed. This drew heavy criticism from human rights organisations.
Two other reforms are passed in April 4758. The first one ends the open border policy to replace it with a very restrictive control. Refugees won't receive any help from the state anymore. Hunting and fishing is also no more regulated. These reforms are not the ones of the government but partially of the opposition.
The government passes communist policies : all banks and the healthcare system are nationalised.
Authoritarian policies are also passed : police officers now carry military-grade weapons and can search a person's property without restrictions.
In the 4760 regional elections, the national-communists win a majority of seats. The CPL is the first party of the country with 148 seats.
The LCP strongly disapproved these policies and supported early elections.
The return (4763-4765) Edit
The 4762 election saw the victory of the opposition forces and an extreme fragmentation of the parliament.
The LCP lost seats but became the second party of the country.
Another LCP-led cabinet is formed: the Kennedy I Cabinet.
The cabinet was formed following the 4762 election without a program with three other parties.
It repealed most laws passed by the previous national-communist one. In July 4765, an early election is called and the cabinet loses its parliamentary majority.
The same month, the LCP ministers resign as well as the FCU ministers following the dissolution of their party.
Left without a government, the parliament passes laws introducing social legislations in March 4766 and almost transforming the state into a theocracy in April 4766.
The fall (4765-4771) Edit
The 4765 election, was a large and historical defeat for the LCP. The party dropped to only 5 % of the votes, becoming a minor party and the ninth party in the country. The LCP minister resigned from the Kennedy cabinet.
However, due to the election results , a political crisis followed, with successive early elections in 4766 and 4769.
Although the party gained two times more votes (10 % of the total votes) in the 4769 election than in the 4769 election, the 4770 regional elections were still a defeat.
As a result, the party decided to dissolve in 4771.
