March

29-Montenegro- I think the People's Party is sympatetic to monarchy, good luck to the opposition.

April

5-Moldova- Down with the Communists

9-Indonesia- If you support a restored caliphate (which I don't) the Prosperous Justice Party is the one for you.

9-Algeria- Likewise with Mohammad Said for President

16-India- The I can't make heads or tails of Indian politics. I don't see any monarchists.

22- South Africa - who does SAmonarchy endorse?

In yesterday's parliamentary elections in Portugal the People's Monarchist Party recieved nearly 15,000 votes, but no seats.

Also, the Social Democrat Party of Germany, which helped overthrow the monarchy in 1918. Suffered a severe thrashing.

Sadly those elected are not far from them in their Republicanism

True.  I see no reason to be excited about the victory of Angela Merkel, who is not even particularly conservative by republican standards.

Sadly, monarchism is not even an issue in Germany at all as far as I can tell.  If it ever threatened to become viable, the Office for the Protection of the Constitution would squelch it faster than you can say "Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz." Most Germans have probably never heard of Tradition und Leben.

I hope they turn out well.

What, exactly, would "well" mean in this case?

Portugal held a presidential election in which only 46% of the population voted, and 6% of the ballots were blank or spoiled. Interesting....

Portugal hold parliamentary elections in 3 days. What effect will this have on the potential restoration of the Portuguese monarchy, do you think?

Not much. Notice how both parties have "social" in their names?

Of course, in Canada the Social Democratic NDP has a higher percentage of Royalists than does the Conservative Party.

They need to change the name then.   It should be a rule that a conservative under a monarchy should always be a monarchist.

Or how about Bob Russell, MP for Colchester in the UK. He's a former member of the Labour Party, the Social Democratic Party and now sits as a Liberal Democrat. Here's a letter he wrote to someone complaining about the recent Royal wedding:

I would not only vote for Mr. Russell, I would buy him a drink!
