    The 2019 Natalian General Election took place on 30 October 2019. The outbreak war between the UN Intervention, which included Natal, caused both the United Party and the NNC to form a Unity Government before the election, going so far as to not contest each others seats. PM Zille campaigned on maintaining the current United led Unity Government during a time of war, while the NNC promoted the intrests of Africans during a war against an oppressive rule of the White-Minority run government of the Boers. The Democrats, whose main campaign platform was Boer rights, seen a decline in popularity and began to distance themseleves from the Boers in the north, denouncing completely in order to maintain voters. Labour remained the prty for White voters who were politically left of United but felt unheard in the African dominated NNC. While Social Justice continued its decline as both the NNC and Labour would take their party's ideas. The results of the election were expected by most news outlets, with a vicoty for the Unity Government.

    The European Union (EU) is a transnational organization of various European nations intended to maintain peaceful relations with one another and spur collective economic growth. The EU was preceded by the European Economic Cooperation Agreement (EECA), which was founded by France, the United Kingdom, Catalonia, Luxembourg, Belgium, the Netherlands, and the UN Mandate of the Rhineland which was under French control. Founded on the 11 June 1964 with the signing of the Barcelona Agreement, the EECA's goal was for European states to gain greater economic independence from Canada and the United States, due to Europe's economy needing to be reliant on those countries to rebuild after the Second World War.

    The EECA would turn to more cooperative intergovernmental work, and move to more Pan-European ideals during the later years of the Silent War. This would culminate with the transformation of the EECA into the European Union with the signing of the Treaty of Eindhoven on the 1 November 1983. With the founding members being that of the original seven EECA members, with the addition of Sweden, Norway, Denmark, North Finland, and Schleswig-Holstein, which were all members of the Nordic Single Currency Market or NSCM, which all those countries adopted the Nordic Krona as their national currency in 1977. The Euro would be adopted on 1 January 1998, with the exception of the UK and the NSCM nations participating. The German states would join the union maintaining their common currency of the Deutsche Mark.

    The government of the EU consists of the Parliament, representing the people of the EU, and the Union Council, representing the governments of the member states. Main political power is held in both governmental bodies, with the Secretary-General being the leader of the largest party in the Parliament, currently led by the European Democratic Coalition (EDC) under Theresa May, with the Council President currently being President Carles Puigdemont of Catalonia. The Vichy Area was created as part of the Vichy Treaty which was signed in 2000, opens multiple European borders, with the exception of Germany, Saxony, Albania, and Bulgaria. While multiple non-EU members are a part of this area, most notably Switzerland.

    Membership is a years-long process, with the last country to join the union being Bulgaria on 1 November 2012. The European Cooperative Neighbourhood (ECH) was first created in 2008, to assist struggling economy's in the EU's vicinity during the aftermath of the collapse of the United States and Soviet Union, with the resulting Second Great Depression. Spain would be the first to join the ECH, followed by Tunisia. Switzerland, and the other micro-states, joined to support the EU's economy while also gaining benefits from the organization. The "BUGS" countries (Bulgaria, Ukraine, Germany, and Spain) have had struggling economies, and have been unable to rebound to stable levels since the beginning of the Second Great Depression. Although Spain and Germany have seen small, but, decent growth over the past few years. While Spain they have never petitioned to join the EU, over Catolians admission to it.

    As nationalism begins to regrow around the world, it is especially seen in Europe. As Euroskeptisms begins to spread, more citizens express their desire for their country to leave the EU. This is most widely seen in Germany, as the government under CDU Chancellor Volker Kauder plans a national referendum on whether to remain in the EU for early 2020. His government promised such an action on the campaign trail during the 2019 Federal Election to gain votes from the more nationalist German Democratic Front. Many Eastern European nations have had their membership vetoed by Germany, due to the Silesian Independence War. While membership of Banat and Vojvodina, and Transylvania has been vetoed by Bulgaria (on behave of Hungary) and is bared as part of the Niagara Agreement. While Ukrainian membership is bared as part of the Sevastapol Agreement. Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania are seen as the most likely countries to join the EU, possibly by next year or the early 2020s.

    2015 EU Parliamentary Election PEG.jpg
    The European Union Parliamentary Election of 2015 took place between 8 and 11 of June. The European Social Democratic Union (ESDU) lost further seats, while the European Democratic Coalition (EDC) were able to expand their seat numbers. The EDC would first gain parliamentary plurality in the 2010 election, taking it away from the ESDU. The National Populist Alliance of Europe (NPAE) would see their largest seat count in their party's history, along with the European Greens (EG) and the European Conservative Rights Group (ECRG). While the Liberal Alliance of the Union (LAU) would lower their seat count.

    Right-wing parties saw a surge in popularity, as prejudice against Arab and Muslim groups entering Europe mainly due to the Levantese Civil War. The more left-wing parties saw further decline as their domestic policies were seen to be aligned to the refugees, and the economical plans being to ambitions and seeming un capable to fully restore the EU's economy. The EDC's economic and refugee plans were seen as more moderate to the general public. The continuing concern over Climate Change caused many ESDU voters to support the EG, mostly in countries with coastlines which saw the largest impact of the crisis. While the Communists of the European Union (CEU) would lower their seat count by 7, as communist support would decrease throughout Europe ever since the collapse of the Communist Eastern Bloc.
