Country Liberal Party[?]
This page contains information about the Country Liberal Party.
This party is inactive.
|The Country Party was formed in 2808 with the intention of representing Lodamun’s agricultural population in order to protect the interests of the rural community. Naturally the party has found some support amongst farmers, fishermen and other rural labourers, which should give it a significant enough constituency with which to get Members of Parliament elected at the 2812 national elections. However it is widely expected, as often happens with new political party’s in Lodamun, that the Country Party will benefit from a significant protest vote in national elections, which may even allow the party to get members elected in urban areas.|
The party follows a fairly pro-free market policy, although is even favour of protectionist measures to aid Lodamese farmers and industries. The party also follows a socially conservative agenda, putting it on the right of the political spectrum. However the leadership have noted they want to represent rural society as a whole and welcome all political views, but naturally the political conservatism of the countryside forms the mainstream opinion within the party.
The party was renamed the Country Liberal Party in January 2812, just prior to the February elections, and Kathryn Turnball was selected as the interim leader of the CLP, to lead them into the election.

|Random fact: Parties have the ability to endorse another party's candidate for the Head of State election (if there is one). This adds a strategic element to the elections.|
