The 1996 Qumar Election lead the Labor Party to win the majority in Parliament and Josh Meceil to be the new Prime Minister. Precceded by the 1992 Qumar Election, succeeded by the 2000 Qumar Election.
With the new leader of the Conservative Party being Ashton, much of the country was incredibly disappointed in the Conservatives. The party suffered huge losses in membership over the next few months as the election loomed nearer and the party attendance at rallies dropped over 30%. The Conservative party was, as such, unable to hold on to their majority. Quraen Sheraz was deeply disappointed in the parties failure.
The Labor Party seized the advantage of a new Conservative leader and declared that the party was unable to function correctly internally, so obviously, it should not be running the nation. The people bought that very much and it became almost a slogan for the Labor Party 1996 Campaigning. Josh Meceil lead the party to victories even in the deep south and took over 210 seats for the party, the largest majority in Qumar history.
The National Party faultered under a new and often sickly leader and as such, it lost many seats in the 1996 Election, however, the party stayed around with the seats it had and was able to survive the election.
Three months before the election, Conservative MP's attempted to redistrict the national parliament map in a way that was, as many experts agreed, in their favor. The Labor Party slammed the conservatives repeatedly for this and were able to create enough internal tension that it never passed through Parliament. It would've been disasterous for the Labor Party in the next election.
