The Second Daniels ministry, officially known as the Thirty-fifth ministry, was formed on 1 October 2019, in the aftermath of the September 2019 executive election in the Abeldane Empire. This Reichsregierungskabinett counts with an absolute majority status in the Reichsversammlung, as it was a coalition government, consisting of the Liberty Front and Populares.
Following the March 2019 executive elections, Edward Daniels was elected as Vorsitzender with a 1-vote margin against Nicholas Randouler of Die Rechte. It was widely expected that the Vorsitzendership race would be a tight race unlike the Stellvertretership race, where opinion polls showed that Charlotte Katrinsdottir of Die Rechte was leading by more than 10 points against her opponent, Austin Jaax of Liberty Front. In the end, Katrinsdottir won the race with more than 60% of the votes.
With the result being that not of a Die Rechte-controlled executive, it was expected that the national unity government of Die Rechte, Liberty Front and Social Ecology would continue and both Freayth and Daniels publicly made it known that they were keen on continuing the current arrangements under the then-Vorsitzender Tarik Karjasary.
On 1 April 2017, Daniels and the entire ministry were appointed by Emperor Newton and saw minor changes with the portfolios and ministers from the Karjasary ministry, with the only difference being that of the Vorsitzender, Stellvertreter, the Minister of Media and Culture and Attorney General.
