Name: John LaMalna
Birth: November 9, 1980 (age 36)
Party: Socialist
Family: Emma Watts (wife), Elma LaMalna (daughter), Jacob LaMalna (son), Elizabeth Watts (daughter)
Seat: Alberton Venisse (since a 2014 by-election)
Occupation: Self-made businessman (worth 9 billion), billionaire, philanthropist
He owns the country's top internet company, Connex Wireless, and his firm, LaMalna Enterprises, owns many properties in both Lamarna and overseas.

Political positions:
Social issues: Pro-LGBT rights
Opposes abortion in most cases
Pro-Malno rights (being 75% Malno and all)

Economics:
Believes in a mixed economy, with all the tax increases that entails. Says that he isn't required to pay enough taxes and that, as the country's richest man, he feels it unfortunate that he has to donate so much money to prop up schools and hospitals he helped fund the building of. Supports labor unions and has a good relationship with union leaders.

Foreign Policy:
Is staunchly pro-American. Is well known for his hosting of President Russ Feingold at his Alberton condo during his recent visit to Lamarna.

Refugees/Immigration:
Says the country should admit as many refugees as is sensible. Believes the Filipinos should all be given citizenship.

Health Care:
Believes rural clinics should be given government money to help adopt improve wait times. Backs a single-payer healthcare system.

Energy/Environmentalism:
Thinks it is of foremost importance to support green energy. Believes in massive government investment into rapid transit.

(LaMalna Enterprises is essentially a heavily shrunk version of Berkshire Hathaway, FYI)

Looks like the Socialist party gets a challenger after all. It appears that the Socialist and National parties are going to have primaries. Things shall get interesting.

I am not running for the leadership. I will vote for the incumbent. Anthony Milton deserves to stay on as leader of the Socialist party and I am a solid supporter of his.

What's the map from the previous election? Also, could you give a brief description of the politics in different parts of Lamarna?

Seats before the elcetion:


The South is, in general, much more economically left than the rest of the county while being socially moderate.

Alberton has a mix, but is rather cosmopolitan in its beliefs. Sunderland is a bourgeoius suburb, while Morganville has a strong working class tradition.

Suburbs, in general, are more economically liberal. Urban areas differ economically, but usually socially liberal.

The far Northern Islands used to be Labour strongholds but have shifted toward the National Party lately.

What is the threshold for list status, and what were the last list results?

What is the threshold for list status, and what were the last list results?

3%. The 2014 elections were approximately:

DemLab - 21%
NA - 18%
Socialist - 15%
Republican - 13%
Progress - 9%
National - 9%
O&S - 6%
Anticap Action - 5%
Others - 4%

Anticap Action - 5%
Others - 4%

Thanks! So by my (admittedly rough) calculations, the last election would have returned a parliament that looked something like this (list + constituencies)?



DemLab - 40
NA - 38
Socialist - 32
Republican - 22
National - 19
Progress - 17
O&S - 10
Anticap Action - 9
Others - 0

Just noticed this was my 1,234th post. Hmm.

Yeah; the government was a grand coalition of the four largest parties.

I have the flu (fun), so I don't think I'll be able to post until at least tomorrow.
