The Faroese Islands are holding parliamentary elections today. The word must go out to all monarchists to oppose the Self-Government Party, the Republican Party, and the People's Party, which are committed to Faroese independence and would almost certainly put an end to the monarchy if given the chance. I myself support the Unionist Party, led by Kaj Leo Johannesen, which is adamant about maintaining the union between the Faroe Islands and the Kingdom of Denmark.

Down with those who would abolish the monarchy in the Faroe Islands! God save Queen Margrethe II!

Unfortunately it looks like the Republican Party has won the Faroese elections.

May God protect the monarchy in the Faroe Islands.

Here is the breakdown of the new Faroese Parliament:

Republican Party              8 seats
Union Party                     7 seats
People's Party                  7 seats
Social Democratic Party     6 seats
Centre Party                   3 seats
Self-Government Party      2 seats

The Faroese Logting contains 33 seats. 17 seats are needed to form a majority. The Republican Party, Self-Government Party, and the People's Party have combined a total of 17 seats. The Union Party, Centre Party, and Social Democratic Party have combined a total of 16 seats. The sympathizers of republicanism hold a majority and could form a government without necessarily relying on a non-pro-independence party. God sav Queen Margrethe II! Say no to Faroese republicanism!

Monaco held parliamentary elections on February 3rd, 2008. The results are:

Union for Monaco*                      21 seats
National and Democratic Union*     3 seats



*Note: The Union for Monaco is a centrist coalition consisting of three polical parties, Union for the Principality, National Union for the Future of Monaco, and Promotion of the Monegasque Family. The National and Democratic Union is a conservative party whose full name is Rally for Monaco-National and Democratic Union.

All in all, there wasn't anything much for monarchists to be concerned about here, as no existing political party in Monaco wishes to abolish the monarchy.

Elections were held in Belize yesterday, but the results haven't come in yet. I do, however, support the UDP as Prime Minister Said Musa's government is apparently corrupt and may be leaning somewhat republican.

Also yesterday, Belize held a referendum on whether or not Belize should have an elected Senate. I fervently hope that the referendum returns a no vote!

The results are in! This was the first election to the Belizean House of Representatives in which 31 members rather than 29 would be elected. And of the 31 seats, the UDP won 25! The PUP won a mere six. Dean Barrow, leader of the UDP, was sworn in as Prime Minister of Belize by Governor -General Sir Colville Young on February 8th, 2008.

The results of the referendum are in! It passed with a Yes vote of 61.54% This means that the Senate of Belize will now be elected, with implementing legislation likely to be passed later this year.

Thailand is holding elections for the new Senate today. I don't see much for monarchists to be concerned with here.

Also, I am officially delegating to Jovan the duty of reporting on the results of the Alberta legislative election being held tomorrow.

The results of the Thai Senate election are in. The 74 appointed Senators are thought to be closer to the outgoing military administration of Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont and General Sonthi Boonyaratglin who came to power in the 2006 coup that deposed Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra. The 76 elected Senators, however, contain a substantial number of people with connections to former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, along with many opponents of the same. Nothing for us monarchists to worry about though. I'm sure His majesty the King of Thailand can deal with it.

It's 22h00 local time. Results are almost complete. I'll post the totals when I get them.

Given the Constitutional entrenchment of the Monarchy in Canada, our provincial election is not too important from a royalist point of view. The Progressive Conservatives, however, tend to be more small "c" conservative and more royalist than the other parties. For instance, our Lieutenant-Governor's home page may be the most royalist of such pages in Canada.

Interesting, though, is the fact that no party has ever held power, lost it, and then been returned to power. The Liberals (Grits) were in power from 1905-1921, the United Farmers Association from 1921-1935, Social Credit from 1935-1971 and the Progressive Conservatives (Tories) from 1971-??. This, to the best of my knowledge, is unique in the world history of British based, Westminster style goverments.




The distribution of parties in the 26th Legislative Assembly, dissolved by His Honour, the Honourable Norman Kwong, Her Majesty's Vice-Regal representative in Alberta, on 3 February 2008 was as shown in the upper table. The results from the election of 3 March is the bottom table. As you can see, the Tories swept to power for the 11th straight time. A majority this large has not been seen since the 1970's. We can expect new leadership in both the Liberal and New Democratic Party (Socialist) parties, since their current leaders led them to abject defeat.
