The Creslonian Legislature has historically always been a two-party system. The centre-right National and centre-left Liberal have been polarising politics for centuries.

Currently, Liberal is in power.
The Creslonian Liberal Party is a left-wing political party that is currently in power. Leader Jack Wyodi has been Prime Minister since 2004 and Abigail McGuire has been deputy for since 2011. Wyodi cannot run for a fifth term in the 2020 elections, meaning that either Abigail McGuire or National leader William Davis will take power.

Liberal supports modern liberalism, social liberalism, progressivism, and equal rights.
The Creslonian national Party is a right-wing political part that is opposing the Liberal Government. Leader William Davis has been leader since 2004 and Alice Ward has been Deputy since 2002.
National supports conservativism, nationalism, economic regulation, and centrist populism.
Both political parties tend to oppose each others policies. For example, when Liberal is in power, National generally challenges its rival's progressive policies on the grounds of protecting Consitutional freedoms and national conservativism.
The two parties briefly put aside their differences during the Creslonian Civil War in order to present a United Front against the Creslonian Fascist Party (CFP). The joint actions of both Liberal and National during this time were instrumental in defeating CFP leader Alexander Graham, his forces (many of whom were Creslonian National Defence Force turncoats and civilians), and sympathisers.
For the rest of the 20th century, Liberal adopted much more progressive policies over the decades and National continued to oppose same-sex marriage, LGBT+ rights and recognition, abortion, and social assistance. National has since adopted a slightly less conservative approach to those issues following the infamous government of Jackson Edwards. Edwards was removed from power in 2002 for breaching the Creslonian Constitution and was replaced by National MP Alice Ward. In the 2004 election, Jack Wyodi became Prime Minister and has served the maximum tenure of sixteen years (four terms). He is currently 48 years old, and wife Sarah Wyodi is one year younger.
