    Sure, that'd be very nice. Also, if you happen to have any map of Vienna, that'd be great. As the four constituencies from the first district of Vienna are seemingly based on the viertel. My concern is finding the legislation where they set out which parts of which Vienna district go where. I...

    Lastly, the non-activist nationalist parties, Only two parties left, one looking at right vs left and another focusing on the German vote. The German People's Union (DVV, formed by the German Nationalist Party with other minor parties) The German National Socialist Party (DNSAP) The...

    Now for the Czechoslovak right, The Czechoslovak National Democracy (ČsND) was founded in 1919 as a result of the merger of the Young and the Old Czech parties as well as various other national-liberal parties. The party was the most right-wing of the all major parties of the republic...

    In Slovakia at least, the agrarian vs. Catholic divide was often based on the Protestant/Greek Catholic vs Roman Catholic divide. In the Czech lands, I suppose the degree of secularisation, given its - erm - tricky history with the Reformation, the Hussites, the Counter-Reformation. But it is...

    The three Christian Democratic or 'Catholic' parties. The Czechoslovak People's Party (ČSL) was the main Christian democratic party for Czechoslovaks in Czechoslovakia. The party gathered 7.1% of the vote in Bohemia, 18.6% in Moravia-Silesia and 3.3% in Slovakia, adding up to 8.9% in...

    The Farmers' League (BdL) was the German equivalent of the Republicans, the agrarian party of the Germans in Bohemia and Moravia-Silesia. The party did not, however, take part in elections in Slovakia or Ruthenia. Truth be told, the party's agenda was not too dissimilar from the RSZML's except...

    The Republican Party of Farmers and Peasants (RSZML) was the largest party of the Republic and the largest of the centre-right. The RSZML was not too dissimilar from other interwar agrarian parties. The party was essentially in power non-stop from 1920 until 1935 and most of the non-technical or...

    The Czechoslovak National Socialist Party (ČSNS) was the most-voted party in Bohemia as well as the most Bohemian of all the parties. The party itself was classed as centre-left and represented a sort of non-Marxist socialism that drew heavily from left-liberalism but also contained elements of...

    in 1928, the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia (KSČ), the only multi-ethnic party in the First Republic, the second largest communist party in the world with over 150,000 members in 1928, was rocked by internal infighting between the faction led by party leader and former ČSDSD left's leader...

    Ummm fair enough. My comment on that was based on a passing comment in “Hungary and the Victor Powers” so I’ll change that. Your explanation makes more sense to me, particularly if the battle lines where further west.

    The ČSDSD's German counterpart - the German Social Democratic Workers' Party in the Czechoslovak Republic (DSAP) was the most important and indeed the most-voted of the German parties. The party obtained - roughly - a third of the ethnic German vote in Bohemia and 22% of the German ethnic vote...

    Putting them all together. First off, the vote results of the ČSDSD, the Czechoslovak Social Democratic Party. The party essentially ran in each of the 4 lands (meme) created in 1927. As you can see, the party was strongest in the more industrial areas of Moravia-Silesia as well as in the...

    For me, I received a propaganda leaflet (or so I thought) regarding the collapse of the Austrian Empire in 2021, a bit Syria-style. This all made me think also of a much stronger Habsburg domain in general. The only thing I had clear was that I wanted to make some sort of The Economist-style...

    And last but definitely not least, the results for Bohemia. For the record, all parties that ran for office got at least one seat.

    Next up, the Provincial Assembly of Moravia and Silesia (Zemské zastupitelstvo v zemi Moravskolezské). The population size of Moravia-Silesia was no much bigger than that of Slovakia, and as a result, the territory elected 40 members, plus 20 appointed by the government (no data here). Of the...

    The Prague government appointed whomever they pleased from experts “taking into account economic, cultural, national and social circumstances”. Informally, they tended to exclude non-governmental parties or non-mainstream ones (HSLS was a coalition party in 1928).

    The Slovak election is the only one for which I have the numbers of the appointed members. Question though, is the colour difference between HSL'S and RSZML sufficient in your view? Thing is, I want to reserve the 'blue' hue for the ČSL as I would ideally like to finish this off with a map of...

    The Provincial Assembly was formed by 18 members, 12 of which were elected in an at-large constituency and one third was appointed by the central government in Prague. The electoral system was simple on the face of it. The entire province acted as a single multi-member constituency elected via...

    In other news, last night I found a monographic book from the Czech Statistical Agency on the Czechoslovak 1928 provincial election. So time to map it. For the record, I haven't given up on mapping the 1920 general election but it's hard to find the motivation to do so - the Slovak...
