Elections in Istalia
The Istalian Social Liberal Party (PSLI), originally known as the Istalian Socioliberal Party, is a progressist ans social liberal political party in Istalia. The party was founded in April 4030 by Alessandro Senna, and first contested elections in 4032.
The Istalian Social Liberal Party born to propose a liberal and progressive alternative to the far leftist and very authoritarian and nationalist PDS.
The PSLI propose a social liberal policy, with high individual and economic liberties and a strong social democratic welfare, a vision very internationalist of Foreign Policy, more open to international cooperation pursuing the goal of making Italy a major player on the international stage. Very sensitive to environmental issues the ISLP deal this matter with a realistic and scientifical approach, applying a strong environmental regulation but not disdaining for example nuclear energy to to limit greenhouse gas emissions and the use of fossil resource
In the field of civil rights the ISLP wants pursues a secular and permissive approach, rejecting all forms of discrimination and protect the human, political, civil and social rights.
The party was founded as Istalian Socioliberal Party when Alessandro Senna came out of the Socialist Democratic Party leaded by the authoritarian Antonio Battisti who face turn the party into too nationalistic and populist position, too extreme for Senna who decided in the 4030 to leave the party.
Under the leadership of Senna the newly formed party express clear liberal position, in the civil and social rights as well as in the economic field. The first great conquest of Senna was the passage of the reform of the right to citizenship to grant it to all the nationals. In the first years however the party cooperate with the SDP and also with the Alliance of the Democratic Centre, and with the latter Senna reached various economic goal to liberalize the economy.
The second election of the party's history gave to the ISLP a great victory becoming the first party and having granted the support for the presidential election to Battisti, Senna was appointed as Head of Government, role which he held during the next legislative period too, even if the emergency due to the terroristic attack of the Istalian People's Brigades lead to the Istalian Enabling Act referendum, 4039 to increase the presidential power to face the threat.
Civil War periodEdit
Senna supported the referendum for the good of the Nation but when he realized Battisti was using the emergency power to increase its personal power began to clash more and more with the President until its resignation as Prime Minister. Banned all political parties except the SDP, Senna escaped to the political arrests requested by Battisti who replaced the parliament with a select National Security Council and appointed himself as Capo Supremo. Gave himself to the bush Senna quickly became the Leader of the Democratic Resistance fighting the fortunately brief Istalian Civil War, 4044–4045 and then leading it to victory.
Post Civil WarEdit
After the Civil War the ISLP suffered a drastic decline of consensus, this is because many party members had supported Battisti, but the second half of the XXXXI century was a real political, social and cultural renaissance with many party which was formed or reformed, first of all the Populars for Istalia which became quickly the main antagonist party of the ISLP leading the right-wing coalition and leading the country toward the Presidential Reform. The first election with the new constitution gave the victory to the Populars for Istalia and to its leader Mario Adinolsi.But at the 4062 elections, which saw compete only the PSLI and the PPI, Senna was elected President of the Republic and launched foundamental reform to liberalize the society and to regulate the extreme libertarian reforms of the precedent administration.
Senna won also the 4066 elections but due to the parliamentar crisis opened by Adinolsi and the increasingly intrusive demands of the ally LDE in 4069 was forced to resign to leave definitively the politics. Senna is remembered as one of the greatest heroes and characters of Istlian history so that the day of the victory of the civil war, which became a national holiday, was also dedicated to Senna: in future during it became a practice for the Presidents of the Republic to visit the Senna's Mausoleum at Romula during the celebrations).
The successor of Senna was his historical heir Eleonora Antani which to oppose the libertarian politics of the Populars and its allies led the ISLP toward more leftist positions giving primacy to the socialist current. During this period increased the welfare and the social services while the free market economy was regulated so to give more protection to the workers. In alliance with the LDE the center-left governed Istalia for most part of the second half of XXXXI century while the birth of new parties and the political fragmentation began to creak the presidential system.
The Parliamentary ReformEdit
Became National Secretary Marcantonio Borgiese, was him to led the Nation to return on the Parliamentary System, bringing together all the other parties except the PPI, which was the only to oppose to the reform which came after two Presidential term of Borgiese. The strong influence and political position of the PSLI, also facing the right-wing majority legislatures, guaranteed the country a long period of freedom and protection of civil and social rights.
Between the two centuryEdit
After Borgiese the Leadership was taken by Emanuele Paolelli but was a brief Secretariat due the internal coup leaded by Al-Mahmud who accused Paolelli, and his eminence grise the former president Antani, to maintain the party on too far left positions, to flatten and excessively accept the LDE political positions. Al-Mamhud, became National Secretary after after outvoted the Socialist component, led the party on more economic liberal position and between the end of the XXXXI and the begin of the new century came to form Government Coalition with the right-wing parties, politics continued by its successor, Giorgio Accorsi, especially because the birth of the extremist Communist Party which became the only opposition party to face the "Tetrapartito" coalition (ISLP, PPI, Democrazia Istaliana and Partito Socialista Democratico d'Istalia, this latter subsequently replaced by the Partito del Patriota d'Istalia). In this period the ISLP virtually controlled almost without interruption the istalian foreign policy, with several former foreign ministers later became Presidents (above all Claudio De Michelis and previously Francesco Toso, the last one of the main protagonist of the race to the majatran seat to the Security Council of the World Congress). Thanks to this strong international involvement the Istalian economy continue to grew exponentially, continuing the economic boom of the second half of the XXXXI century, and became one of the members of the Security Council of the newly founded World Congress, increasing more and more its international influence.
Accorsi had to drive extremely composite and varied Governments, which did lose votes to ISLP at the end of the first half of the century, to which was added a major scandal involving a candidate for the national secretariat for the post-Accorsi which opened a serious crisis which was solved only after four years when was elected as new leader the universitary professor and political philosopher Michele Scialoja. Under the leadership of Michele Scialoja the ISLP returned to being one of the nation's major parties, winning several times the primacy into the Parliament and leading various center-left paty. In this period Istalia became one of the most influential nations of the world and the ISLP cemented its internationalist and interventionist positions continuing to erect the country as one of staunchest defenders of human rights in the world. In the same period internally the ISLP had to face the victories of the right-wing in the half of the century and became the leader of the center-left opposition founding with the newly birth party Verdi Istaliani the coalition Alliance of the Progressist for Istalia to facing the extremely libertarian policies which caused high unemployment rate and a general collapse in incomes and consumption (due to draconian cuts in public spending and especially to social and health services). In the 60's and 70's the A.P.I. (formed by the PSLI, Verdi Istaliani, Social Democratic Party and Istalian Federalist Movement) reforms the social security improving even more the universal welfare and begins an important devolution program.
In 4170 the leadership of the Party goes to the younger Secretary ever elected, Lorenzo Verhoeven, the youngest son of Willem Verhoeven, who came from Saridan when he was just five years accompanying their parents, Isaac and Rielle Verhoeven, refugees escaped Saridanese regime arrived in Istalia in 4093. As most close colaborator of Scialoja, Verhoeven find a party solid and united and thanks to its committment into the A.P.I. quickly he become the most prominent representatives of the Progressive Alliance. Under the leadership of Verhoeven the A.P.I. continues to cover the role of Government's coalition until the end of the century and during this period Verhoeven and the PSLI became the party of the coalition charged to mediate between the different forces and political ideologies and the work of the PSLI was foundamental to coordinate the Government policies. During this period, after the rule of the Federalists, Verhoeven acted as President of the Council of Ministers, Ministers of Foreign Affairs and then in 4186 he gained the Presidency of the Republic. Thanks to the 30 years of continuative A.P.I's Government the Nation experimented in the second half of the XXXXII an ever increasing of the civil liberties and of the progressive policies, but also a large federative period during the 60's and 70's under the influence of the Istalian Federalist Mouvement, with the PSLI which reached manies political objectives. Under the 4191 Presidency (the second for Verhoeven) Istalia was blow by terrible terrorist attacks which continued to menace the Nation for most part of the last decades of XXXXII century and to face the greatest crisis of Istalia in more than 150 years, Verhoeven decided to take the control of the situation and to put himself at the head of a Government of National Unity which in the next years gave the special powers of Verhoeven to contrast the terrorist menace with more efficency. But during this difficult period the A.P.I. and the U.o.L., the two coalition that for more than 50 years ruled on the polical stage, dissolve also due to the end of the National Unity Government and the formation of a Democratic Front (Nuova Socialdemocrazia, Partito Ambientalista Istaliano and Democrazia Istaliana) to oppose the excessive restrictive policies adopted during the terrorist crisis. Gained also the fourth consecutive presidency Verhoeven started finally a process of normalization to put an end to the emergency situation in Istalia and at the same time decided to establish an istalian administration, first military than civil, into the kalopian region of Mossavi to attack directly in Wantuni the Revolutionary Front of Wokers for the Liberation of Wantuni, responsable of the terrorist attacks, to respond to the scandal which involved the istalian multinational in Wantuni and to go toward the needs of the kalopian people under the istalian territory to face the increasing anarchy which at time was raging Kalopia/Wantuni.
