Prime Minister Matthieu Poitiers said that Parliament would be called into session on January 18th, 2006, at which point a Speaker shall be elected.
Current Party Standings Edit
As of March 9th, 2006, party standings are as follows:
Alexandrian Conservative Party (ACP): 3
People's Democratic Party (PDP): 1
Non-Partisan's Association (NPA): 1
By-elections of March 2006 Edit
Following the elections of January 2006, no political party held a plurality of the seats in the Imperial Parliament. Each one of the politicial parties held at least two seats. The Conservatives however depended on the Prime Ministership to retain their seat count in Parliament.
In February 12th, Claude Peterson (NPA MP from Puerto Nuevo) resigned and left Alexandria due to personal reasons. Following the resignation of Peterson, the two MPs from the People's Democratic Party forfeited their seats in Parliament due to inactivity. This caused Prime Minister Poitiers to call by-elections in these regions. Pete James, the new leader of the PDP, won the seat of Valenciennes by default, as did Emiliano Morales in Puerto Nuevo. Jose Frias, who was defeated in January by Nicholas Bertrand of the PDP, won the seat of Baudrix with 100% of the vote against the PDP's Thierry Mareu.
