1984 Election ResultsEdit
The 1984 Qumar Parliament Election lead to a hung parliament with the Labor party being just three seats short of a majority. The Labor Party had campaigned heavily on economic growth while the Conservative Party campaigned on defict reduction and the National Party focused on Defense funding, something many Qumarians believe was lacking.
Leadership elections took place in August and September of 1984 with only the Labor Party electing a new leader. The labor party elected William Monroe over Prime Minister Neil Sherif due to Sherif's lack of popular support. The party jumped over two points in the polls for the leadership change and still managed to rake in about 48.3% of the popular vote. The National and Conservative Party leaders ran unopposed in their parties and lead brutual attacks on the labor party for more seats.
Hung Parliament - Labor/National CoalitionEdit
With no party wining a majority in the 1984 election, the government was declared a hung parliament. The National party, who usually sides more with the conservatives realized that the labor party had a more likely chance of carrying three independents to win them the majority then the conservative party did, so the national party approached the Labor Party and formed a coalition government with them.
William Monroe was elected Prime Minister because the Labor Party had the most seats in Parliament and Angelai Ferri was selected as the Deputy Prime Minister. The Labor Prime Minister's cabinet contained 15 Labor Ministers and 6 National Ministers in order for the National Party to have some power in the coalition government.
The coalition would only last for the 1984 government.
