HistoryEdit

On 19 November 2014, after gaining permission from his father, the now King Oscar of Ruthenia established the Throne of Ruthenia, declaring Ruthenia to be an independent kingdom[1]. The first three months of Ruthenia's existence were plagued by uncertainty and political instability, but King Oscar was able to maintain order and develop the kingdom. A Absolute Monarchy from his beggining, everything has changed with the Constitution of 2015[2]. Ruthenia became a confederate constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary system of government, wherein the King of Ruthenia is the Head of State and the Chancellor is the Head of Government, and the Power of the King was splited among the legislative, executive and judicial branches of government.

Ruthenia held its first parliamentary election between 06 and 16 May 2016[3], for the positions of the Leader of the House of Magnates, who is also the President of the Royal Diet and assumes the office of Minister-President of Ruthenia and Leader of the House of Representatives. The post of Minister-President has been used to replace the Chancellor of the Kingdom[4], as Ruthenia should adapt to the terms of the Karno-Ruthenian Compromise of 2016. Two parties participated in the election: the newly created Objectivist Party and the Moderate Party. The elections did not happen in Karnia because the positions for legislatures were filled by appointment.

The Objectivist Party, a new liberal conservative party founded just a week before the election, elects its two candidates, consolidating the party as the largest in the micronation. Weslley of Agram lost the first election to Guilherme da Lomellina[5][6] and, applying to the second election, lost again, this time to Yuri de Faria[7][8] The elected candidates took office on 20 May 2016[9].

The Royal Diet was disbanded on 01 August 2017, after the foundation of a common legislature for the Empire, the Imperial Diet.
