The move was strongly opposed by White Rose who won the next election
Weston II Cabinet
After the election, the party won a majority of seats and 48.88 % of the votes. It then formed the Weston II Cabinet and repealed most of the changes made by the communists.
T. Weston cabinets (4702-4712)
After the election in 4702, White Rose kept its first place but lost its absolute majorityof seats, with only 31.40 % of the votes gathered. Thomas Weston became prime minister in the T. Weston I Cabinet with 4 other parties. The People's Council size was increased from 90 seats to 350 seats.
An early election was called in 4704 following the dissolution following the dissolution of the FVA, which was part of the cabinet. White Rose stayed the first party and the T. Weston II Cabinet was formed, this time with the Luthorian Fascists and with the support of the SDP.
Following the dissolution of the RWCPL, another early election was called in 4706. The White Rose confirmed its first place with 37.08 % of the votes won. The political crisis continued in 4707 with the dissolution of the Luthorian Fascists and a new early election. This time, the White Rose reached 42 % of the votes and a stable government, the T. Weston III Cabinet could be formed with the support of the SDP.
The cabinet passed an ecological reform removing regulations, as well as hunting and fishing quotas. It also passed a reform making adultery a capital offense, trade unions illegal and the nationalisation of all banks and houses.
These reforms were criticized by the communist parties and the extra-parliamentary opposition.
In the opposition (4712-4717)
In 4712, the party endures a huge electoral defeat. It loses more than half of its seats and becomes the third party with 19.51 % of the votes. While the far-right Royalists became the first political force, their party dissolves only a few months after the election. This left the communist with a majority in the parliament and the White Rose was the main opposition party to the communist policies.
In 4717, the party became the first political force again but with only 20.89 % of the votes.
T. Weston IV Cabinet (4719-4725)
White Rose manages to form a cabinet with the LDU and the HM in 4719. The cabinet abolishes many communist reforms and passe reactionary laws. Membership in the Holy Luthori Church becomes mandatory and blasphemy becomes prosecuted again.

In the opposition (4725-4729)
In 4725, the LDU makes an agreement with the communists and form the Ferina I Cabinet without the White Rose to take care of the urgent affairs. This move is criticized by the White Rose.
Luthori became a Republic as the LDU became a republic party. The Imperial Diet was changed to National Assembly and the office of the president was restored. White Rose still supported the Empire.
Governmental participation (4729-today)
Surge and T. Weston V Cabinet (4729-4734)
In 4729, the party receives a large amount of support and becomes the first party of the country with 29.39 % of the votes. This success, combined with a majority for the pro-empire, reactionary opposition lead to the formation of the T. Weston V Cabinet in 4729.
The cabinet of Thomas Weston passed multiple reactionary laws undoing what the previous socialist-led cabinet had done. The social security budget was decreased by 10 billions, euthanasia was made illegal, abortion was banned except in case of medical emergency, homosexual marriage was also banned. The cabinet also pursued a neoliberal economic policy.
This cabinet was in office under the presidency of Michael Hewitt and saw an unprecedented presidential crisis, where the government decided to "censure" the president after the negative comment concerning the government he had made in international press releases.
The government gained a two-third majority due to the dissolution of left-wing parties during the legislature and restored the Empire in November 4731. 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.
In the 4734 election, the party loses its first place and becomes the second party of the country with 22.96 % of the votes, a decrease of 6.44 %, while its ally, the LCP, wins the election with 28.81 % of the votes. The White Rose loses votes in every duchy but stays the first party in Northriding and Erneshire. In Shipleyriding, the party only gains 4.44 % of the votes, while the LCP wins 55.05 % of the votes in the duchy.
The WR-LCP government however keeps its majority with 82 seats out of 150.
Jackson I Cabinet (4734-4740)
Following the defeat of the party in the election, the new prime minister becomes Tina Jackson from the LCP at the head of an LCP-WR cabinet. The cabinet pursues the work of the previous Weston government: death penalty is restored, open homosexuality is banned in the military, retirement age is increased to 65 years old, public transports are no more subsidized by the government, compulsory work for able-bodied prisoners is implemented. Blasphemy also becomes a criminal offense, the government becoming more and more aligned with religious fundamentalist and far-right positions. The Duke Thomas Weston becomes minister of Internal Affairs.
In the 4739 election, White Rose loses a large share of votes. The party receives 9.21 % of the votes, a decrease of 13.75 % and 12 seats, a decrease of 24. In Erneshire, the WR stays the first party with 19.87 % of the votes but scores below 10 % in other duchies.
Following the dissolution of new political parties and the failure of negotiations, an early election is called for 4740.
The party improves its results gaining 13.50 % of the votes and 19 seats this time. That is an increase of 4.29 % but not enough to compensate for the losses in the last election. In Erneshire, the White Rose loses the first place to the HLC.
Jackson II Cabinet (4740-4750)
The Jackson II Cabinet lasted 10 years and passed reactionary reforms. It expanded death penalty removed economic regulations, privatised public services and finally banned abortion in all cases.
In the 4745 election, the cabinet was one seat short of a majority and a political crisis ensued. Regional elections took place the same year. The White Rose won one governor.
Defeat in the 4747 election
The 4747 parliamentary election is a large defeat for the White Rose. The party goes from 22 to 8 seats with only 5.92 % of the votes.
In the 4750 regional election, the party loses its sole governor with bad results.
Smith I Cabinet (4751-4757)
After passing a year in the opposition, the WR takes part in another cabinet in September 4751. 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.
National-communist revolution (4758-4763)
In 4758, the far-right and far-left parties took power and proclaimed the national-communist revolution on 16 February 4758 when the Dalton II Cabinet was formed. The authoritarian policies of the cabinet ended after the 4762 election when the coalition only gained 31 % of the votes.
It is also a bad result for the White Rose with only 8.92 % of the votes.
The rise in popularity (4763-4777)
After the revolution, the electoral results of the White Rose kept increasing, except in 4766. The White Roses takes part in the Kennedy I Cabinet between 4763 and 4768 which passed religious authoritarian laws.
The party keeps gaining popularity, participates in multiple cabinets and reaches 26.48 % of the votes in the 4772 election.
In the 4775 regional election, the party gains two governors.
First opposition party (4777-4782)
The party manages to still gain more than twenty percent of the votes at every election, but the right and far-right experiences a downturn. In 4777, the Franck I Cabinet is sworn in and pushes left-wing reforms. The cabinet also repeals the religious authoritarian laws passed by the previous cabinets.
In the 4780 regional election, the White Roses loses its two governors and the right/far-right coalitions loses two other duchies.
In the 4782 election, however, the White Rose becomes the first party with 24.13 % of the votes. Nor the left or the right-wing alliances win a majority of seats due to the entrance of the LDP in the Diet.
The party then decides to restructure itself and does not participate in the 4784 election. This allows the Socialist Party to take power and pass social-democratic, progressive laws. This move was criticised by the White Rose and called anti-democratic.
First cabinet of Duke Leighton Weston (4788-4793)
The party does not participate in the 4787 imperatorial election, which is won by Tom Jones. However, the parliamentary election is a victory for the White Rose which gains a plurality of votes (28 %).
The government completely bans euthanasia and abortion, positive discrimination or gender reassignment surgery. Sales tax on essential goods is abolished.
Right Coalition (4792-4802)
In 4792, the Right Coalition is formed. It is an alliance of right-wing to far-right parties formed by Duke Leighton Weston. The next cabinet was formed by Duke Marcus Weston. The duke pursued the ultra-conservative and economically liberal reforms of its predecessor. The Alliance always wins over 50 % of the votes in the next elections and John Clay of the Luthorian Conservative Party becomes Imperial Seal Bearer in 4798. The alliance kept the conservatives in power until its dissolution in 4802. Duke Leighton Weston was elected Imperator three times with the support of the coalition: in 4792, 4800 and 4802.
In the opposition (4803-4805)
After the July 4803 Luthorian parliamentary election, the party sits in the opposition, since the right-wing to far-right LCP decided to ally with the left in the Garza I Cabinet while Duke Leighton Weston is defeated by John Detmer in the July 4803 Luthorian imperatorial election.
White Rose - Holy Party government and decline (4806-4813)
In 4805, the White Rose gains 34 % of the votes and forms a cabinet with the Holy Party of Luthori under the leadership of Duke Marcus Weston. The new government passed very conservative laws, until the government was defeated in the polls in 4810. The government stayed in power as a caretaker cabinet
In December 4811, Duke Marcus Weston lost the imperatorial election with 43.14 % of the votes against Count William of Hurrington and the White Rose quickly lost votes. In the 4813 Luthorian parliamentary election, the party only gained 14 % of the votes and was ousted from power.
In the opposition (4813-4815)
The White Rose was in the opposition for two years, during the Hurrington I Cabinet. The far-right cabinet did not last long but managed to ban interracial sex and homosexuality.
Anti-fascist cabinets (4815-4823)
From 4815, despite still losing votes, the White Rose participated in anti-fascist cabinets with the left. The goal of the Manstad I Cabinet was to oppose the rise of the far-right in Luthori. The cabinet legalised interracial sex and banned judicial corporal punishments.
Growth in the opposition (4823-4837)
After a defeat in the 4823 Luthorian parliamentary election where the party only gained 7.54 % of the votes and 10 seats, the White Rose sat in the benches of the opposition for 15 years. During those 15 years, the party recovered very slowly.
In the November 4837 Luthorian parliamentary election, the party gained 18.85 % of the votes, after supporting the far-right candidate Count William of Hurrington in the 4837 Luthorian imperatorial election.
Governments with the far-right (4838-4850)
In the 4838, the White Rose decided to fully endorse the far-right and participated in the Hurrington II Cabinet.
The biggest reforms of the government were the implementation of racial segregations, the censorship of medias and the implementation of judicial corporal punishment.
A wave of anti-governmental protests erupted in 4840. The Deputy Imperial Seal Bearer Jake Crawler decided to ban all left-wing demonstrations in the country.
The cabinet pursued the far-right reforms of the previous Hurrington II Cabinet.
However, in 4846 until 4849, a political crisis erupted as the AFU abstained or support two left-wing reforms going against the government plans. A deal between the three parties was made and led to the formation of the Middleton I Cabinet in March 4849, after two early elections where the government kept its majority.
Most of the left-wing reforms were repealed in 4849.
Despite being the largest party, the far-right lost its majority in the 4851 Luthorian parliamentary election and an anti-fascist cabinet gained power.
Far-right opposition (4850-today)
The new cabinet cabinet passed progressive reforms and desegregated the country.
In January 4855, the Luthorian Conservative Party cancelled the Confidence and Supply agreement and called for an early election. The reason invoked was that most coalition parties did not reach out to the LCP to work on an agreement.
The 4855 Luthorian parliamentary election gave the anti-fascist majority 79 seats and the fascist 71 seats. The Jennings I Cabinet stayed in power, but without a political program due to divergence of views between the partners.
Despite that, the far-right candidates of the National Movement were re-elected in the imperatorial elections with the support of the White Rose.
