Elections and political parties in Berusturg


The government uses a mix of the party block voting (PBV) and proportional representation as its voting system. The PBV system is only used to elect the Minister of the Federative Council while the PR system is only used for the Islandic Council* and Provincial Councils and Councils for specific Federatives.

Elections take place every 2 years, usually in November, The Minister of the Islandic Council gets elected every 3 years.

The Minister of the Federative Council gets elected, along with their list of lower level Ministers, these Ministers are assigned to specific Ministries and their assignment cannot be changed during or after the election. any Ministers that operate under a specific Federative and/or Province are not part of this election. A separate election is done for Ministers in the Federative Council that are part of a specific Federative and/or Province, as well as the Islandic Council.

Everyone will have to vote for the Minister of the Federative Council. Only people that are in a specific Federative and/or Province can vote for the Minister of said Federative/Province. Only people with Nova Astrovan citizenship can vote for The Islandic Council.

Anyone who gets Accepted by not just the king but the whole dynasty will be able to run for the election. They're organized by parties.

The election is operated by the Ministry of Elections, which operates all aspects of the elections.

Candidates have a limited budget of 10,000 Beruses. 3rd party support is allowed as long as it does not pass the budget. Broadcasts from radio and TV and posters around Cities are mandatory for advertising; other forms of advertising are optional.

For the Minister of the Federative Council, their team will operate in a "test period" for a month. if they are able to control the country at an acceptable level, they're officially declared the head of government by the king. the same system does not apply to the Islandic Council or the Ministers of any Federatives/Provinces, as they're immediately given their respective title.

The Minister of the Federative Council can be dismissed by the king if they fail during the test period; after that another election will take place. they can also be dismissed by the people during their period of operation, though they cannot be dismissed by the king any more during their operation.

*:The Islandic Council is the Council for the Autonomous Federative of Nova Astrova. This council has a higher status than the council of other Federatives; as they're able to enact their own laws without the involvement of the Federative Council or the king. They also have their own Parties, and Parties operating in any other Berusturgian Council cannot operate in the Islandic council.
