The Rhino Alliance was a political alliance in the Commonwealth of Essexia. It was founded on the 5th January 2020 as a voting bloc against the Old Guard Party and the informal WAR Party, following the events of the Grey Weekend. It was dissolved on the 13th January 2021 by the Rt. Hon. Newton, as the Chairman of The Greens (Essexia) (The only party left in the alliance at that point).

History

The Rhino Alliance was founded as a direct response to the declaration of martial law by the WAR Party government. During martial law Lord Matthew left the WAR Party and as Parliament was suspended the ordinary by-election procedure did not occur. Once martial law was lifted, against the desire of the government, the Rhino Alliance sprung into action with Lord Matthew announcing that he would be supporting the Rhino Alliance and thus requesting that the Rhino Alliance be allowed to form a government, as they had a majority in parliament.

After a number of changes in the political landscape throughout 2020,

Name

"Rhino" was chosen as the name as it was seen that only a charging rhino could tear down the monopoly on power held by authoritarian parties in Essexia.
