Political Fallout From Sudestian Plebiscite

Auleus – On the 29th of May the results of the Sudestian Independence Plebiscite were announced:

Leaving the Confederation: 53.2%

Remaining in the Confederation: 45.5%

Invalid: 1.3%

Although the Plebiscite voted in favour of leaving the confederation, Chancellor Finley Muller refused to pass it into law, because of this the Sudestian Independence Movement withdrew support of his government, with Justine Jozefo stating “The Conservatives have once again stood in front of democratic progress” . This statement eluding to the fact that universal suffrage was not granted in Auleus until 1933 by Thomas Hillser. Until that point voting was restricted to the male aristocracy, however universal suffrage had been granted in the more liberal Sudestia in 1890.

After this the Conservatives lacked a majority, trying to negotiate a coalition with the National Front, this angered the moderate Democratic Centrists, who withdraw from the confidence and supply agreement and tried to form a government with the Socialists.

On the 31st of May a government consisting of the Socialist Party, Democratic Centrist Alliance, Republic Party and Sudestian Independence Movement was formed. LC Oscar II appointed Ben Holman as Chancellor on the 1st of June, this coalition only lasted 3 days though with Democratic Centrists withdrawing on the 3rd after negotiating terms with the National Front.

Finley Muller had deposed by the Conservatives by this point, replaced with deputy party leader Hayley von Kempf. A government consisting of the Conservatives and Democratic Centrists with the support of the National Front was formed.

Hayley von Kempf was appointed Chancellor on the 4th of June.
