    Congratulations to the new government and Rakas21 for becoming PM.

    This may have been addressed elsewhere but who took the seat that tehFrance couldn't fill?
    The Liberals.

    Paraphrasing The Mad Dog in the GE thread:

    The Greens are the only party who are not interested in going into government. Well, well... well.
    We weren't/aren't (and I did point out opinions change and weren't unanimous). We settled for opposition

    Is that the first time that Labour's not been in Government or been the official Opposition?
    No, not at all. In Parliaments II, VIII, IX, and XI, or 25% of all Parliaments, we've been neither

    Depends how long your term is. You need to survive just under 2 months first.

    Can you make official coalitions in opposition?
    Yes. As per the constitution:-

    7.17.1. [The Official Opposition] is formed by the party or coalition with the second highest number of seats.
    Of course, the government sub-forum isn't actually mentioned in the constitution or the guidance document at all and is granted entirely at the whims of the Speaker, so it is Jarred's choice as to whether the opposition receives a sub-forum just as the government does.

    I don't think the mods will allow more subforums, but it certainly be nice for the speaker to try!

    AFAIK it'd require an administrator. Depends how generous they're feeling. I don't see why they shouldn't though.
