    - Nilde Iotti: arguably the foremost woman in the Italian Communist Party. Daughter of a trade union activist, Iotti grew up under the Fascist regime and joined the Communist partisans in 1943. She was elected to the Constituent Assembly at age 26 and subsequently the Chamber of Deputies, of...

    This is probably very niche, but I've been reading a lot about pro-republican forces in the Weimar Republic and it absolutely fascinates me, so here's a scenario. Carlo Mierendorff was a German socialist, journalist, and politician in the 1920s and 30s. A young member of the up-and-coming...

    The 2021 Greater Berlin regional election was held on 27 June 2021 alongside other regional and local elections across Germany. The incumbent National Bourgeois government was defeated. The Progressives overtook the Socialists to become the second largest party in the Assembly, while the...

    Old Content incoming. Made this last year but I really like it so here it is. The 2020 South Korean legislative election, held on 15 April, was a landslide victory for the social liberal Democratic Party of President Moon Jae-in. The 180 seats won by the party and its decoy list was the...

    Made this a couple weeks ago but forgot to post it. Second-strongest party by city and district in the March 1933 German federal election. The first map shows vote strength, the second is flat shaded by party to make it easier to read. Combined with the above map of the first-place parties...

    Spaghetti Shenanigans Starring Riley

    This is actual peak comedy. You have to wonder how the caucus didn't force Muldoon out or otherwise make him to take a long, long nap before election day. All hail the Moyleslide.

    Not my favourite subject, but I found the data and the opportunity was too good to pass up. This is the 5 March 1933 German federal election, held five weeks after Hitler was appointed Chancellor and six days after the Reichstag fire. By this point, democracy in Germany was well on death's door...

    I don't have the census itself, but you can find just about any number you could dream of on this site: https://treemagic.org/rademacher/www.verwaltungsgeschichte.de/laender.html Any district, city, even municipality, over the course of decades (including post-war). It's kind of amazing. Just a...

    Regine Hildebrandt was elected Minister-President by the Volkskammer on 24 September, becoming the first female leader of either East or West Germany. She received 201 votes on the first ballot, the minimum number required for an absolute majority. Though the vote was secret, estimates suggested...

    The second parliamentary election of 1991 took place on 25 August. The electoral system had undergone some modification. It retained its foundation of party-list proportional representation, with seats distributed across the various districts. New features included an electoral threshold of 3%...

    The already-chaotic political landscape faced a fresh realignment. With unification no longer the defining issue, competing visions for the future of the country took centre stage. Though Schulz and his government were still popular, they were now obsolete, and the UpD struggled to redefine...

    The GDR was not the only country facing problems, however. West Germany held its national elections in January, before the collapse of the Reich cabinet. The CDU/FDP government of Helmut Kohl lost its majority in the face of a public dissatisfied with the lack of progress on unification. This...

    The political landscape shifted dramatically in the aftermath of the Reich cabinet's collapse. The Alliance 90 melted down almost overnight. Reich remained at the head of New Forum, though it dramatically bled members. Appetite for unification remained high, but the bright-eyed idealism of '89...

    The 1990 East German parliamentary election was the first election held after the Peaceful Revolution, a series of protests in late 1989 which caused the ruling Socialist Unity Party (SED) to give up its monopoly on power. It was the first free and fair election on East German territory since...

    Not quite as complicated, but one of my favourites is the system Bulgaria used for the 2009 election. It was mostly typical PR in constituencies corresponding to counties (Sofia was split in three), but for some indecipherable reason, they also decided that each MMC should double as a...
