Workingmen's-People's "Nativist Alliance": As Chinese immigration became more and more the main topic discussed in preparation for the election, nativism had become the new fad. As such, the main anti-immigration parties, the Workingmen's Party and People's Party, decided to nominate the same candidate in a fusion ballet in the hopes of finally winning the Presidency. This man was Oregon Governor Sylvestor Pennoyer, who after nomination, chose Colorado Senator William J. Hunsaker as his running mate. Their official platform was what could basically be simplified to nativism, populism, and really anything you can associate with anti-establishment sentiment.

Chivalry Party: As the years of winning the Presidency, again and again, the Chivalry Party and its members grew comfortable in their mansions and aloof to the discontent growing among the Pacifican populace against their seemingly endless reign. Because of this, they did not worry when Pennoyer began his campaign. They had seen popular demagogues run against them and lose, especially with voter intimidation on their side. But then the riots began, and they finally realized that maybe hiring cheap Chinese workers wasn't so popular with the common white man.

Citizens Party: The Citizens Party's Convention knew they were going to lose the election. But they still got to work and campaigned hard and thoroughly to represent Pcificans who supported just copying whatever the remnants of the US Republicans were doing. Of course, this platform was only really popular in Nevada and Oregon (though they still lost the latter), where some pro-Union sentiment still resided. Regardless, they still went on to lose the election, but at least with some more votes than years prior.

This is the 1889 Presidential Election from this list I've been doing in my test thread. I'll probably post more tidbits from this timeline here and there.

Yes the third party is literally called the Third Party. @bd_roberts suggested the name and it's 100% something that Zappa would do.

The victory of Norbert Hofer in the Austrian presidential election sent shockwaves across the world. For the first time in the modern era, a European nation had elected a far-right president. Though often considered a symbolic office, little known to most observers ahead of the election, the President is invested with a great degree of power: the ability to appoint and dismiss the Chancellor and cabinet at will, sign and veto laws, and rule by emergency decree under some circumstances. Austria's status as a parliamentary, rather than semi-presidential, nation is largely a result of convention and tradition. During the campaign, Hofer called for early parliamentary elections to be held. One need look no further than opinion polls, which throughout 2015-16 placed the Freedom Party clearly in first place, to find his motives. The President also has the power to dissolve the National Council at the request of the cabinet, and as soon as he took office, Hofer began negotiations with the government to do just that.

The SPÖ, led by new Chancellor Christian Kern on just this third month on the job, were starting to see a recovery in their popularity, while their junior partner the ÖVP were staring down the barrel of a historically bad result. Neither were particularly keen. But with Hofer taking such strong initiative, all were wary of what could happen if they refused. FPÖ leaders began to suggest that Hofer could dismiss the government and simply appoint another which would request the dissolution. The SPÖ and ÖVP proposed that an election be held ahead of schedule the next year, but Hofer refused to accept a compromise. He threatened to veto the government's legislation if they did not relent. Faced with a brewing constitutional crisis and the prospect of gridlock for the remainder of the term, and hoping that Hofer's antics had soured the public against the FPÖ, Kern and the SPÖ took the gamble. The ÖVP were scathing, accusing the Social Democrats of throwing in with Strache, but they were powerless to prevent it.



While the Freedom Party saw a small dip ahead of the election, circumstances failed to avert catastrophe. Hans-Christian Strache led them to a sweeping victory with just under a third of the vote. Most of their new support flowed from disgruntled ÖVP voters and former supporters of Team Stronach and the BZÖ, as well as non-voters. They won a plurality in seven of the nine federal states, with only Vienna and Burgenland remaining stalwart for the SPÖ. The Social Democrats managed to avoid total disaster, recording a slight improvement from 2013, but nonetheless finishing a relatively distant second. On the other hand, the ÖVP's worst fears were realised as they crashed to below 20%. The Greens remained steady on 12%, and NEOS improved to 6.5%.

Government formation was anything but straight-forward. The FPÖ were quickly forced to admit that, like Haider before him, nobody would accept Hans-Christian Strache as Chancellor. Some demanded that Hofer appoint him anyway but, despite his success in wrecking the previous government, the President found himself constrained in building one responsible to a parliamentary majority. The SPÖ had made tentative moves toward reconciliation with the Freedom Party ahead of the election, and stated that they were open to discussions. A series of constellations excluding the FPÖ were ruled out by various parties, most significantly the ÖVP, who resolved to retreat to opposition and leave the Social Democrats to clean up the mess. Reinhold Mitterlehner was immediately jettisoned and, to the surprise of few, succeeded by foreign minister Sebastian Kurz. With alternatives exhausted, long and difficult negotiations began between the FPÖ and SPÖ. They forged a compromise reminiscent of the modern FPÖ's first stint in government under Wolfgang Schüssel, with Christian Kern remaining Chancellor while the FPÖ took a majority of cabinet posts; Strache also remained outside of cabinet.

I arrived early for a talk with Chris and Tony Banks. Michael Foot let it be known today, or rather it was known as a result of his refusing nomination for the Party leadership, that there would be a leadership contest, and Tony, who has just been newly elected for Newham North West, offered to stand down so that I could have his seat and be eligible to contest the leadership. I wouldn’t hear of it. It would be manipulative and I wouldn’t contemplate such a thing. But I have never known anyone make such a generous offer before. - Tony Benn, End of an Era: Diaries 1980-1990
"...I mean, Banksy, have you seen what Kinnock has been saying? We need Tony..."

"...Who in the lord's name would allow him to do that? Does he think he can pull this off? It's not like he'd win the leadership anyway..."

"...upon criticism of undemocratic procedure, Banks has said that the people of Newham North West had voted for Benn's ideals..."

"...and party headquarters won't fucking lift a finger, you can bet on that! What made you think this was a good idea?"

"...I am a social democrat. Benn is a Trotskyist. Your choice."

"...and there's no chance, no hope, no nothing! The bloody Alliance have all the damn doors knocked! We're on the road to a second Bermondsey!"

Neil Kinnock; “I told you so!”

That being said, a continuation of the SDP doing well could possibly be turned around if Kinnock is able to deal with a rudderless Left quicker.

they're still the alliance at this point, to be fair. I stole the template from the bermondsey wikibox
I should have said, the SDP inside the Alliance. Feels like the kind of scenario where an SDP/Alliance surge that kneecaps Tory and Labour seats in 87’ allows Labour to surge too and so we get a hung parliament and David Owen being David Owen.
