After Spain elected its most fragmented parliament ever in 2015, and the failure of the major parties to negotiate a coalition, a new election was called for in 2016, and with a stagnant economy, regional instability, corruption scandals and Brexit fresh in the mind of voters, it was anyones election to win. The main 2 contenders, as always, were the centre-right PP under Mariano Rajoy and the centre-left PSOE under Pedro Sanchez, but this time, the left wing Unidas Podemos alliance under Pablo Iglesias posed a real threat to the 2 party system, with some even predicting PSOE to fall to third place as the party bickers amongst itself. So, will the two party system survive? Will government deadlock continue? Will regional seperatism continue to make gains around Spain? Most importantly, who will become the new Prime Minister of Spain?
NOTE: Spain uses the D’Hondt system, which does not exist in Prime Minister Infinity, however, it is encouraged that you use one of many available D’Hondt calculators to determine the final result.

A scenario for Gibraltar’s 2019 general election.
The Socialist Labour Party is aiming for its third term in office. Can the centre-right Social Democrats, led by Keith Azopardi, thwart the GSLP-Libs? And what impact will Marlene Hassan Nahon’s new populist movement have on the future of Gibraltar?
After a tumultuous second term in office, abandoning most of it’s policies from it’s previous government, can Bob Hawke make history and lead Labor to it’s subsequent 3rd election victory? Or will John Howard and the coalition capitalize on the disillusion of labor’s heartland and form Government? (all whilst avoiding the disastrous Joh for Canberra campaign)
Playable characters include:
Bob Hawke (Labor)
John Howard (Liberal)
Ian Sinclair (National)
Sir Joh Bjielke-Peterson
Janine Haines (Democrats)

This is my first published campaign so feedback is more than welcome.
With the Spanish general election on 28th April, here is a scenario for the election. I will adjust the figures once the actual results are in to reflect the changes.
Spanish PM Pedro Sanchez is facing a tough re-election fight as a C’s-PP-VOX alliance appears to be gaining ground. Can the Socialists win a majority along with their Podemos allies, or will the right wing parties win? Or will we end up in a situation where neither bloc has a majority and has to rely on nationalist parties?
PSOE: Socialist (Centre-Left)
PP: Christian Democratic (Centre-Right to Right-wing)
C’s: Liberal (Centre to centre-right)
UP: Socialist (Left to far-left)
VOX: Ultranationalist, Francoist (Far-Right)
ERC: Nationalist, Socialist (Left-Wing)
PDECAT: Nationalist, Liberal (Centre-Centre-Right)
PACMA: Animal rights, socialism (Left-wing)
PNV: Nationalist, Christian Democratic (Centre-Right)
EH-Bildu: Nationalist, Socialist (Left-Wing).
Centre-Right/Far Right: PP+C’s+VOX
Hi everyone! Here is a link to a scenario I made about last year’s election in New Zealand. This was very hard to make, since in New Zealand most of the Labour Party’s seats are list seats, and we do not have MMP or (Yet) preferences, unlike in real life, so it was difficult to make this. However, I came up with a solution, which was to add some MPs as a top up for the parties (To make up for a lack of a proportional list system) and as a result the scenario works perfectly. Try it out and see how you find it. I also added the Maori electorates as in real life.
Once we have preferences, or indeed MMP, I will update this scenario and add in the new electoral dynamics.
There also seems to be an error with high scores at the end, which I would like to correct, if someone can help me with finding out the reason for it?
“Note: preferences will be added in a future release.
After taking control of the Labour Party, Jacinda Ardern has shown herself to be a formidable campaigner. Can she lead Labour back into government or will Bill English and the Nationals win this hotly contested election?
This simulation uses a unique electoral system where, in addition to the Maori electorates, everyone will also have a list vote for list MPs on the North and South Island, and smaller parties are given list seats to reflect their vote share.”
