History

The Caudonian Front was founded on 6 November 2019 by Ned Fram. The party was first seen as a threat within the country, however the party has was shortly accepted by the general public.

November 2019 General Election and the Caudonian Crisis

On 23 November, the Caudonian Front contested in the general election and Ned Fram held a speech after the Prince’s election seat, this speech was about how the United Sovereignties betrayed the Prince and Caudonia’s constitutional rights and that the Caudonia should unilaterally withdraw if he was elected as Prime Minister, the next day, Sebastian was chosen as the Vice President after Caudonia entered private talks after the Union of Crimsonian Socialist Republics showed ableist behaviour towards Ned Fram on Twitter the previous day. Ned Fram has stated he may reconsider his position on Caudonia’s membership in the United Sovereignties if Crimson was removed and there was a reform of the directorate.

On 27 January 2020, the Front adopted a new full name in an attempt to differentiate the party from the rest of the Caudonian right.

March 2020 Election

On 21 February, prior to the March 2020 general election, the Front along with the Christian Union formed the Coalition for Caudonia, a move which faced a significant amount of criticism, even within the party itself. However, on 27 February, Ned Fram announced the withdrawal of the Front from this Coalition, and thus, the Coalition's dissolution. He apologised for joining the Coalition in the first place, stating that he now believed it to be a "betray[al]" of his party's core values. He also cited discussions with leaders from both the Democratic Alliance and the Alternative for Caudonia in his official statement given to the Caudonian Broadcasting Corporation.

The Caudonian Front won 6 seats in the election, however failed to create a majority.

AFC-CF Merger

On 16 April 2020, Alternative for Caudonia merged into the Caudonian Front, gaining its two seats in Parliament.

Policies

The Caudonia Front had many policies. Its main policies were reforming courts, supporting and building up of the police force, and creating a unique identity for Caudonia.

Withdrawal from USoV

The Caudonian Front was a driving force behind the Caudonian withdrawal from the United Sovereignties.

Controversy and Criticism

On the 9th November 2019, after criticism from Andrew West and other members of the Social Democratic Party, the President of the Caudonian Front, Ned Fram, publicly apologised for calling the opposition 'treasonous', he stated that 'it was far too strong of a word to use'

Members of the Christian Union often criticized the Front, saying that it is 'not conservative'.

Electoral results

The Caudonian Front had been represented in Parliament from November 2019, when an MP from the Populist Conservative Party defected and joined the party, resulting in the passage of a motion of no confidence and the early elections later that same month, up until its dissolution.
