BREAKING: SCSP WINS GENERAL ELECTIONS
The results of the Parliamentary elections which just arrived from Branson, downtown District, confirm that Tor Pendentian Minister of Justice Nicolò Alvisi has won the St.Charlian General Elections of 2011 in a historic blowout victory.
Alvisi, Socialist Party, won with a margin of 7 votes in the popular vote, 54.6 percent to 45.4 percent, over National Party candidate and outgoing Prime Minister, Alexander Reinhardt. A total of 42 people cast their ballots for him.
As it was predicted by the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, Alvisi’s margin of victory was very close to the one that almost all pundits had expected. Reinhardt got only 35 – 6 votes less than his 2010 re-election win against former Secretary of the Socialist Party, Fabiana Gallo della Loggia. Not enough to win against Alvisi.
The result made the Socialist Party earn another seat in the General Assembly, thus giving the parliamentary majority to the SCSP. The National Party has 4 seats, the Socialists have 5.
Alvisi was able to clearly convince the voters of District to vote for him. Despite the Nationalist hold of December 28, with Barbara Ruvolo being re-elected as President of District, the Socialist Party has crushed the NPSC, gaining 72% of the total votes, against Reinhardt’s low 28%. A total of 47 people in the Capital city voted in the Parliamentary elections. District was decisive for the final result of the elections, since in all the other federations, the result of the Federal elections was repeated again for the Parliamentary ones.
Alvisi did not win a record landslide, but he won the first Socialist victory in 2 years since the November Revolution, thus making it an historical event in the history of the St.Charlian left-wing and the Federal Republic in general. Indeed, this is not only the first time since 2008 that the Socialists won the elections, but the first time that the SCSP scores more than 35%. Last year, Gallo della Loggia lost with 22 votes and 34.1% of the total.
President-elect of Caroline Charlotte, Leonard Von Sternberg, has commented the result of the elections by saying it is a “great pleasure to have a Comrade as Prime Minister for the first time in history; however, we must also congratulate our opponents for their respectable result”. Nothing was yet heard from Secretary of the SCSP Magnus de Armis.
Alexander Reinhardt has officially conceded the election and is expected to release a speech as soon as possible. “Alvisi has proved the nation and my Party to be a loyal and fair candidate, and I wish him luck for his mandate”, he told the press this afternoon.
