The first June 2008 General Election took place on 05/06/2008 following the dissolution of parliament at the end of the first term of the 4th Inevitable Government. Voters from across Ostentia took part in the electoral process, voting for both a prime ministerial candidate and a parliamentary candidate. The election saw a changed voting method, with the government being elected by Contingent Voting rather than First Past The Post. The election saw the Boo Party retain a plurality in the House of Commons and Inevitable re-elected as Prime Minister.

AnalysisEdit

The Boo Party only narrowly managed to secure re-election using what many have described as unethical voting practices. The controversy did not die down and Inevitable was forced to dissolve parliament barely a week later after losing all control over the House
