After a divided congress submersed into inaction, an unprecedent amount of corruption scandals that brought down the greatest national and local political figures, an all time unpopular president Carlos Alvarado, a global pandemic, historical unemployment levels, a rising debt. What will the Costa Rican people decide in an election marked by apathy, conspiracy theories, indecision, pessimism and a rise in alt right political extremism? Lets find out!
Several issue positions (Electoral Reform, Housing, and Welfare) were not included because of my lack of knowledge on some issues, and the fact that it is sometimes hard to find a clear difference between conservatives and liberals in certain issues. Also, among the issues currently I have included, I still have some doubts about the accuracy of the issue positions.
In general, the issue positions for the candidates are accurate. However, of some issue positions, I could not find a candidates’ view on the topic (especially the relatively unknown candidates). Also, a small number of these positions may be inaccurate.
I did not exactly add All the endorsers. I could add them in the future, though most of them are like this: 4000 doctors endorse Moon Jae-in, etc. Besides, there are already many endorsers (300 assemblymen, 17 Mayors/Governors, and a several others)
There may be too many “arrests” in the events section.
The money is still in dollars, even though it is Won, IRL. However, I retained the dollars due to possible complications. Also, because I couldn’t find their campaign finance data (I just put in their net worth or I just put in a rough guess).
Some of the candidate portraits could be better, but I’ll let you decide on that.
There are some minor candidates I did not add (those that did not end up registering, a few that were cut-off in the People’s Party primaries). The reason is that it is difficult to find some of their stances on the issues. Plus, it took a lot of time to update this scenario.
…and the Republic of Albia is celebrating its 50th anniversary of being a Republic. It is also time to choose a new President, as the Hissenger era comes to a close. The Republic seems to be moving away from a more libertarian mindset to a more populist mindset. Doves feel confident that they can finally end the 14-year drought of not winning a Presidential election. Hawks are looking to continue their dominance in Presidential elections. Both parties are gearing up for a close election, but then…. GLOBAL PANDEMIC! The ROA is not sparred from the global crisis, and the consequences for the election are uncertain. Will Doves finally capture the Presidency for the first time since 2006? Will Hawks be able to nominate a strong successor to succeed the Hissenger era? Will COVID-19 send the election into a frenzy? Will vote-by-mail sway the race in any way? Will states break their traditional partisanship and vote for the other party? How will this race shape the next 50 years for the Republic? The future is in the hands of the people…
*****additional updates to this scenario may come at a later point******
Reworked edition of the 2018 Brazilian presidential election posted by victorraiders. Changed quite a few things from the original to try to make the game more fun, balanced and less prone to end up with the exact same percentages every time.
>Reworked the issues;
>Added a few candidates (most importantly Joaquim Barbosa and Rodrigo Maia);
>Removed a few inviable candidates in the 2018 election (Aécio Neves, Eduardo Cunha and Roberto Jefferson, for instance);
>Reworked the primaries;
>Update electors count to more closely match the 2018 election;
>Changed starting dates and debates;
>Changed initial cash based on the size of the election fund the party was entitled to in 2018;
>Accepting the federal block grant will now give a onus, to simulate the election fund system in Brazil;
>Change percentages to make the game less “railroaded” to matching the 2018 final results.
Hey all! This scenario was made as an alternate history where the Houthi Rebels in Yemen were victorious in the Civil War, and the United States and Yemen worked together to have free and fair elections.
al-Houthi – Merger of two Houthi names in order to avoid realistic connections to someone that may be considered a terrorist to some. Basically a moderate stability and unity party.
al-Yadumi – Leader of the Reform party, which merged moderate traditionalists and tribes with moderate non-Houthi members.
Hadi – Leader of the Traditionalists, the hardline “traditionalists”. Was the former President of Yemen.
Al-Saqqaf – Leader of the Socialists, supported primarily by those in the bigger cities and those who are younger.
