Emperor Marek Habsburg is the official leader of Greater Morvonia, and head of state of Niue Zeeland, Indus, the Karibbean Federation, Niue Guinea and Sudafrika. Despite, or perhaps because of this, he is a notorious alcoholic, drinking vodka everywhere from government meetings to opening libraries. He is also extremely mentally unstable and often abruptly collapses to the ground.
He is married to Helene Mackelstein and has 5 children: Irene, Dominik, Stefan, Albin and Zofia. They live in the Silesian Ostrava Castle in Ostrava, the capital city of Greater Morvonia.

Irene is 26 years old, and married to Grzegorsz Kowalska, a noble from Wroclaw. Dominik is 6 years old. Stefan and Albin are both 14 years old, due to the fact that they are twins and Zofia is 19 years old. Helene is 45 years old, and she was born in Munich. Before her marrige to Marek, she was the governoress of Leipzig.

Marek served 15 years military experience in the 1st Morvonian King's Parachute Regiment as part of the UN taskforce during the Algerian Civil war. He married Helene Mackelstein in October 1975. He met her after visiting Hamburg following his military deployment. He received the Morvonian Imperial Cross of Merit from Helene due to his actions in his deployment and that is how they met.

He is a devout Catholic and often frequents the confession box to confess his sins and multiple mental problems including PTSD.

If no candidate obtains an absolute majority in the first round of voting then the two highest polling candidates contest a run-off second ballot.

The second round of voting happens on the last Saturday in September.

According to the Constitution, to be elected president a candidate must be a Agausian citizen who has attained the age of 35, has the right to vote, and has resided in the country for the past 10 years and has full command of the Agausian state language.

The last elections were held 26 August 2017. The next are scheduled for 27 August 2022.

Prime Minister after election
TBD

Elections in Agausia will be held by 26 November 2022. All 145 members of parliament are up for election.

The elections occur during a time of national and international dismay. Furthermore, a controversial 2019 electoral reform law was deemed constitutional by the Constitutional Court. The law will increase the electoral threshold of parliament from 1% for individuals and 5.5% for electoral alliances, to a 3% Linkelectoral threshold that will be applied across the board.


Background [back to contents]


In the previous election the Social Democrats were able to hold on to their Linkminority government with help from the Farmer's and Green's Union (PMK) and the New Socialists (AS). Both parties agreed to support the government in Linkmotions of confidence and and Linkappropriation or budget (supply) votes, by either voting in favor or abstaining.

The parliament reelected Apolona Nebiskopa (SD) as Prime Minister. Nebiskopa was appointed as PM by former opposition president Eduard Avagyan (AL) in 2015. She has served as Prime Minister since 2015.


Electoral system [back to contents]


The Parliament of Agausia is elected on the basis of universal, free, equal and direct suffrage, by secret ballot. Scheduled parliamentary elections are held on the last Saturday of November of the calendar year in which the term of Parliament expires. In case of the dissolution of the Parliament, elections are called no earlier than the 45th day and no later than the 60th day after the legislature is dissolved.
Runoffs occur on the last Saturday in December of the calendar year in which the term of Parliament expires, following a contested race.

The Constitution of Agausia mandates that the Parliament consists of no less than 145 members. MPs are elected by secret ballot for four-year terms. The electoral system is close list proportional representation with a modified D'Hondt method.


Contesting parties [back to contents]


There a total of 17 political parties active within Agausia, of which 14 are running for seats in parliament. Ten parties are already represented in parliament with 4 vying for seats.


2019 electoral reform controversy [back to contents]




final vote count

In early 2019 several Social Democratic MPs began a draft on a constitutional amendment that would increase the electoral threshold of parliament from 1% for individuals and 5.5% for electoral alliances, to a 3% Linkelectoral threshold that will be applied across the board.

Before being brought to the floor for debate the bill spent a few months in various parliamentary committees. In committee some of the strongest opposition came from within the Social Democrat's New Green-Left Alliance (AM-MA). Mishka Ermolai, the alliance's chair, led the internal decent for the policy. His main worry was the new threshold would bar smaller parties entering the national legislature. Ermolai went on record to say that "supporters of minor parties are effectively being disenfranchised and denied their right of representation by someone of their choosing."

In a rebuttal supporters of the amendment said that simply having a few seats in a legislature can significantly boost the profile of a fringe party, and that providing representation and possibly veto power for a party that receives only 1% of the vote not be appropriate. The Prime Minister, who supported the amendment herself, pointed to the fact that the LinkParliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe recommends for parliamentary elections a threshold not higher than 3%.

The bill spent nearly 3 months in contentious debate before being called to an official vote. A vote on constitutional reforms requires a full session of parliament with all members. An absolute majority (at least 74) votes are required to pass an amendment or make changes to the constitution. MPs are required to cast a vote, meaning that no abstentions are allowed. When the MPs finally voted on the bill, in 2020, the final vote was called 76 for the Yeas and 69 for the Nays. The entire opposition stood together to vote against the measure. But for the Social Democrats six voted against their party. There was also some opposition from the parties that support the government. One member of the PMK and both New Socialists voted against the amendment.

In a final effort by the opposition, just hours after the amendment was passed, the constitutional court was asked to review the constitutionality of the new electoral threshold. In late 2021 the Constitutional Court deemed the amendment constitutional, and furthermore Chief Justice Tarik Nikolaev stated that the court will allow the amendment to go into effect as immediately as the next national elections.

To put it into perspective, if this amendment had been applied to the previous national election only half of the ten parties would have made it past the threshold. This would leave the Social Democrats, The Agausian Liberal Party, The United Alliance, The Farmers and Green Union, and the Progressive Democrats.

Critics accused the government of trying to cement power and quell opposition.
