    TSR Liberal Democrat - 5 seats (67 votes, 9.9%)
    TSR Labour - 14 seats (180 votes, 26.7%)

    What happens now?
    Parties have 7 days to sort out their MPs and form coalitions. I need MP lists from the party leaders as soon as possible as no-one will be admitted to the MP usergroup until I have a list from the party leader. You have until 9pm on the 7th April to form coalitions. For your reference, the rules on coalitions and governments are below:

    TSR Constitution: The Government
    6.1.is formed by the party or coalition with the most seats. In the event of a tie in the number of seats, which party or coalition forms the Government shall be decided by, in order (moving to the next one if tied), the highest number of votes in the preceding election, the lowest number of parties in the coalition, the highest number of seats in a single party in a coalition, and the highest number of votes in a single party in a coalition. If these are all equal, there is no government.
    6.2.shall form as per by the Guiding Document.


    TSR Guidance Document: Government
    1) The Speaker shall ask the Party Leader of the party or coalition that fulfils the criteria in article 6.1 of the constitution to form a government.
    2) The Government shall consist of a Prime Minister, a Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs and any number of Cabinet or ministerial positions.
    3) The Foreign Secretary shall have sole responsibility for maintaining links with the Model UN and shall represent the Model House of Commons in the Model UN.

    In my eyes it looks like the majority of the electorate want a left-leaning TSR Government.

    Well done Libers! Gaining one seat is indeed a good achievement, especially seeing as our hated rivals the Socialists failed to gain.

    Congratulations to Labour too, very surprising but the votes say everything.

    I shall not resign.

    This election if Maddog's figures take into account Metrobeans's PM'd votes did see a 1% rise for the Tories which we will continue to build on.

    Well done to Labour.

    Well done to Labour.
    If you're not prepared to resign then please do not call for our leader to resign if Labour come second in terms of votes / seats in the future. Thank you.

    This is by no means a victory for any party. Yes Labour clearly has more votes than the others but they will now have to give away so much that they hold dear in order to form a majority government. I suppose they could be a minority government but not much would get passed (although by reading comments on these forums they didn't try to pass much anyway). I felt this was a poorly run election campaign by all parties showing their true detached mindset much like real political parties. It seemed to be more of a statuesque battle than one for real change and improvement.

    Congrats to Labour. However, I would like to add that, despite being a Socialist with no love what so ever for the Tories, I do not think that this result is representative of how they have performed of late in the MHoC. They have had impressive levels of activity under Rakas, who I also thought fought an impressive election campaign. I admire his abilities as a leader, and think the calls for his resignation are frankly ridiculous and to do so would be massively harmful to his party. Tonight's result, I believe, has been influenced very heavily by recent real life events and the disastrous and incompetent government in real life, which is reflected in the disappointing Conservative and, to an extent, Lib Dem vote, and unfortunately appears to have little relevance to what has occurred in the MHoC as shown by the fact that the Tories were widely predicted to win by MHoC members.

    On another note, I'm pleased with the Socialist vote and retaining 7 seats, a historically high level for us, and wish to thank all of our voters

    Congratulations Labour
    Know I'm a junior member of the party, but I think I speak for Labour in saying well done to you too. The Lib Dems have been really active in the election thread

    His resignation was only called for because he called for david's resignation should Labour come second in the general election. No one called for his resignation out of their own head.

    Nope, this is definitely a victory for Labour.

    Does anybody know what the biggest winning margin ever is?

    Calls for leader resignations are unnecessary, and the decision of party members alone. This thread is for celebration and/or commiseration.
