The second Dargany cabinet took office on 28 May 2018, after being approved by the fourth Parliament of Sabia and Verona, elected at the 2018 general election. It was formed by Noa Dargany, leader of the Liberal Party, who had led the 9th government. As the Liberals lacked the necessary majority in Parliament, they had to repeat their confidence and supply agreement with the National Artists' Guild.

It was officially known as the 10th government. It was the second cabinet to be formed under the Constitution of 2017, and the second cabinet in Sabia and Verona's history to be formed by the same Prime Minister consecutively, after the second Virny cabinet. On 22 July 2018, the Artists' Guild's two MPs joined the Liberal bloc after the party's dissolution, giving it a majority.

The cabinet was dissolved on 10 October 2018 upon Dargany's resignation following her defeat in a leadership challenge within her party. It was succeeded by the Blackhorse cabinet, formed by Andrew Blackhorse, also approved by the 4th Parliament.

Background

After the La Plata incident, a controversy with prime minister Shounn Virny at its epicenter, calls for the PM to resign were made by both the Left and the Liberals, who teamed up to push for the invokation of a constitutional assembly.[1][2] After a referendum, the parties all agreed to convoke a Constitutional Assembly to replace the controversial 2015 Constitution.[3] The Constitutional Assembly approved a new constitution on 20 April 2017, and it was ratified the following day by King Tarik.[4] Fresh elections were originally set for 30 April, but after an appeal by the National Artists' Guild, the interim Electoral Commission moved the election date to May 14.[5]

The election resulted in major gains for the Liberals and the Left, which won one and two seats in Parliament, respectively. The Liberals were the largest party both in Gonn and Alios, getting over 50% of the popular vote, but still failed to reach a majority with only 10 seats. Immediately after the election's results were released by the Electoral Commission, the Left ruled out forming any coalitions with the Artists or the Liberals. The Liberals then became the most likely to form a government, with Liberal leader Andrew Blackhorse being mentioned as favorite to become PM.[6] Shortly after election day, Prime Minister Virny pointed out on his Twitter account that the Liberals' government formation talks were being headed by Deputy Leader Noa Dargany, instead of Blackhorse. The next day, the Liberal leadership revealed Dargany was their pick to become Prime Minister, as Blackhorse intended to step down from the party's leadership in the near future.[7] On 19 May 2017, Dargany received the King's mandate to form the 9th government of Sabia and Verona, which was confirmed by the 3rd Parliament on 22 May.[8]
