Humanity Party(7 Seats) – Founded as a Populist Vehicle for Mayor Richard McDonough, their main ideology being Anti-Ghoul and Pro-Stands meanwhile insisting that Synths and the Institute are nothing more than Boogeymen. Wall Party (3 Seats) – The Wall Party was originally a single-issue Party, supporting greater funding to The Wall, with some even applying a near-religious devotion to it. However, following the collapse of the Alliance, they have broadened their platform, and become the Anti-McDonough Party. Diamond City Alliance (1 Seat) – the DCA was founded alongside the Green Jewel in the 2130s, and their fortunes have generally been intertwined, becoming the City’s natural party of government. However, the twin blows of the Broken Mask Incident and the CPG Massacre dealt a near-fatal blow to their electability, which they have only just begun to recover from. Justice Party (1 Seat) – The Justice was founded following the Ghoul Expulsions of Mayor McDonough, as a party for the now-depopulated Bleachers (Where most of the Ghouls lived). Their platform is the reversal of the Ghoul expulsions, and increased democratization
2288 is a watershed moment in Diamond City, it saw the utter collapse of the Humanity Party going from 7 to 0 in one election. This was due to the revelation that Mayor McDonough had at some point been replaced with a synth, and the irony was not lost on the Electorate. An alliance of the Wall Party, Diamond City Alliance, and Justice Party took a majority in the City Council, and immediately undertook measures to undo many of the Former Mayor's measures, repealing the Ghoul Ban, acknowledging the existence of Synths and the Institute, and formally applying to join the newly-resurgent Minutemen.
