A New-Era in Chola Edit

The New-Era of Chola marks a new structure within the governance of the alliance. Our past Democratic policies have built a fair and honest system for members to progress. Political parties experienced tension throughout our second Elections, leading to members leaving politics. The Alliance collectively decided that the Democratic principles they founded the Alliance on have left a permanent, and important legacy in how every member is treated within Chola.

The Alliance has moved on to a less structured government body, which embraces ideas and input from all members, and where each member is provided equal opportunity and treatment.

The Syndicate and The Chola have improved their relationship through a new treaty; a soon to be Mutual Defense Optional Aggression Pact is in the works, after The Syndicate recognized the alliances successful defensive assaults in two global conflicts and long term relationship.

The Triumvirate created a new Finance system, where privileged members may participate and view financial reports and decisions, thus providing transparency in the government, essentially preventing corruption. This new Financial system was implemented in early July 2016.

Political Party History Edit

Throughout Cholas Democratic history the Alliance experienced up to five political parties. Two of which established themselves, the Democratic Front(DF) held majority in council throughout the elections, with the Progressive Party of Chola(PPC)-(formed by a merger between the Communist Party of Chola and the Conservative Party of Chola)- winning one council seat per election.

The Democratic Front formed the founding policies of the alliance, bringing greatness to the Chola, however their infighting with the PPC and Edward Snowden had caused some problems causing their leader Rahul to resign. Shotly later, their leader Pablo would also resign leaving young Hunter Lexus in charge. In an attempt to save the Chola, President Hunter Lexus abolished the office of the Presidence and dissolved the Democratic Front.

The Progressive Party of Chola was formed by a merger between the Communist Party of Chola and the Conservative Party of Chola in early December 2015, after entering politics the party began updating old policy, with majority of council opposition, the party fought hard to create improved policy written in law. However, they sson left politics aside, and their embdeden fights with the DF left a scar on The Chola. The PPC soon was dissolved after President Hunter resigned and gave the power of the presidency to the Triumvrate

After lengthy discussion, the Alliance decided to opt-out of the next elections, leaving the alliance to collectively govern itself.
