History

Monarchist Party of Matachewan

On 14 November 2018, King Brandon Mierzwa of the Commonwealth of Matachewan founded the Monarchist Party of Matachewan. It gained a lot of support from the populace and remained the biggest party in Matachewan through the nations' unstable history as a dependency of Gröpenigen, independence from Gröpenigen, all the way through the 4th Kingdom, 5th Kingdom, Rebel state 6th Kingdom, 2nd Republic, and the Matachewanian-Prussian Commonwealth. It was not a political party within the 6.5th Kingdom; the Kingdom of Pomorskie but was reimplemented in its succeeding state, the currently active 7th Kingdom, the Grand Kingdom of Matachewan and lasted until it was officially disbanded on the 16 October 2019.

Social-Democratic Conservative Party

The Social-Democratic Conservative Party was founded by at-the-time Minister of Motivation, Christopher Miller on 25 July 2019. It was the second political party in the Kingdom of Pomorskie. Shortly fter the King of Pomorskie found out that King Kleinmann had dissolved the Matachewanian-Prussian Commonwealth, he took it upon himself to reintroduce and continue Matachewan's legacy through dissolving the Kingdom of Pomorskie and replacing it with the Grand Kingdom of Matachewan where Brandon continued the Monarchist Party alongside the S.D.C.P. who now held the office of the Deputy Prime Minister. When the Monarchists dissolved in October, the Centre Party attempted to succeed it; but the unpopular S.D.C.P. changed that in the October Prime Minister election.

The Progress Party

The S.D.C.P. had now won its very first election, with all the newly gained traction its one and only member, the Prime Minister-elect decided to completely reprofile the party. On 2 October, it became the Progress Party, set on solely focusing on the progress of Matachewan, no matter what. On that very same day, the party's strongest and most respectable opponent was refounded, the United Northern Liberal Party of Matachewan, a successor of a previous party from the Matachewanian-Prussian Commonwealth with the same name. On 23 October of the same month, the Progress Party became what we know today.

The early Progressive Conservative Party

Still set and focused on developing Matachewan to its full potential, this version of the party is the most successful one. Being officially recognised by the King as the successor to the Monarchist Party, peaking at sixteen members before the February purge of citizens who have forgotten about their citizenship, winning the November Prime Minister election as well; until the free trial of being lucky promptly ended.

The Opposition

Understandably tired about their two-term governing party, longing for some change, the populace of Matachewan started flocking around someone who promised exactly that. The respectable leader, Nicholas Lokin of the opposing United Northern Liberal Party held a strong case in favor of political change. The U.N.L.P. showed to be strong competition, being weak and small at times, it has and had always been strong in the sense of endurance; and that showed itself in the December election where they surprisingly won by a landslide. The 1st Lokin Administration abruptly came to an end when the Pro-Con dominated parliament, the Sejm, pointed out a breach in the Treaty of the Grand Matachewanian Commonwealth caused by the Liberal Government. This led to the Prime Minister being tried and found guilty thereafter being deposed only days before the January election taking place in between which the Liberal Deputy Prime Minister politely took the wheel.

• Peak of the party & Crisis of the 18th

The Progressive Conservative Government continued from January 2020 onwards, as the 3rd Progressive Conservative Administration, it was the first elected Administration being subject to a prolonged term of two months instead of one month in accordance to a Bill previously passed by the Sejm. On the 18th of February, the Progressive Conservative Government suddenly found themselves to be in complete control of the state as the King had abdicated and appointed the Progressive Conservative leader as Matachewan's Head of State. He proclaimed himself Regent to the King of Matachewan and controversially took on absolute dictatorial powers over the state, something the party has been criticised for afterwards. Luckily, the King was convinced to come back and dissolve the nation, something that he did, with the exception of actually dissolving the nation. In the most recent election, the Progressive Conservative Party was given two more months; the next election will take place on the 1 April 2020.

Name Changing Debate

The Progressive Conservative Government - being responsible for the game-changing "Bill of Awesomeness" takes pride in all its accomplishments. Branching off the fact that the party is constantly fixed on Matachewan's progress, it's Chairman and Deputy Chairman have been campaigning for a name-change on several occasions - the members of the party have always declined the request, saying that they like the current name as it is. Name ideas have included:

  • Patriotic Party
  • Progress Party
  • National(ist) Party
  • National(ist) Congress
  • National(ist) League

et cetera On the 2 June 2020 just past the elections, the party finally settled on a name. A party who doesn't focus on ideology. Political independence given an identity. The members have for a long time been referred to as "conservatives" or "progressive conservatives" and at this point have on numerous occasions been misjudged as such. The now rebranded Patriotic Front finds the aforementioned name more representative of ambitions and people alike.
