The First Cerwyn cabinet took office on 3 June 2019, after being confirmed by the fifth Parliament of Sabia and Verona, elected at the 2019 general election. It was formed by Apollo Cerwyn, leader of the Democratic Party. The government's mandate spanned the duration of the 5th Parliament; it was dissolved upon the legislature's expiration on 28 May 2020, and it was succeeded by the second Cerwyn cabinet after the Democrats' victory at the 2020 general election.
The Democratic Party (HG) was formed in late 2017 as a merger between the Left Alliance and a splinter faction from the National Artists' Guild led by Snø Jens-Galieri. Due to it inheriting much of the support from the growing Left Alliance and the decreasing popular support for the Artists' Guild, the Democrats became the largest left-leaning force in the 2018 general election, although they fell a seat short of a majority and the Liberal Party managed to form a minority government instead led by incumbent PM Noa Dargany.
Due to internal disagreements within the parliamentary party, Dargany was outsted as Liberal leader and eventually as PM by her predecessor, Andrew Blackhorse, who formed the 11th government of Sabia and Verona, now with a slim majority thanks to the two Artist MPs joining the Liberal Party as a result of their own party's dissolution in July 2018. Blackhorse's administration finally reached an agreement with the Democrats in 2019, when the New Frontier plan went ahead and the territory of Doga Runann was claimed by the Kingdom.
The Liberals were unable to turn their success in the New Frontier negotiations into electoral support, and the Democrats were rewarded with their best-ever result at the 2019 general election, gaining over 55% of the vote and achieving the first parliamentary majority in an election by any political party since 2015.
