The UK and Canadian system discourages people from voting for fringe-parties unless those parties have some strong regional base.

Yes that does explain how The Conservatives and NDP got elected. Good point.

The polls have not closed but I'm declaring this over.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkmenistani_presidential_election,_2012

There is a single party that is running all 8 Candidates, and there is no way the incumbent, Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow, will lose.

So congrats from me to Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow on an election well fabricated and a result well deceived!

Maybe 97% of the people love him.

Japan, China, Russia and Europe, Brazil, the rest of the world, know little of "democracy".

In Brazil there have been peaceful handoffs. And in Canada, Martin handed off to Harper with a minimum of violence.

I've tried to parse the Burma results. It is confusing, but here is what I have. These are the post-election new totals in Parliament.

Lower House

341 - Pro Administration

37 - New Democratic Opposition

57 - Others*

Upper House

185 - Pro Administration

4 - New Democratic Opposition

35 - Others*

* = Others include...

Small parties that may be pro-administration

Regionalist parties that may be pro-administration

Regionalist parties that are anti-administration

Small parties that are anti-administration

Small parties that there is no enough information to classify

Looks more and more like it's gonna be a duel betwen Sarkozy and Hollande in France. Marine Le Pen is unlikely to make it to the second round.

LePen was never a threat for the second round.

most recent polling averages show Sarkozy (UMP) and Hollande (PS) tied. This is a huge improvement for Sarkozy who, until a month ago, was expected to lose the first round.

Second round Hollande is still leading by 9 or so points.

Even though Sarkozy is a loud-mouthed brat I think Hollande winning would plunge the EU into even a deeper crisis as he has promised to open the stability-pact and that would lead to a new series of endless arguments.

However, Hollande will win, no doubt about it.

The French have a history of taking a populist result. The results, often, have been disastrous. See events from 1791 to 1798 and the post-WW II French Fourth Republic.

They'll be no happier with Hollande.

Greece update

Things are... very complicated and confusing. However, I've been able to pear it down to these simple numbers

Government - 163 (Pro Austerity)

Opposition - 133 (Anti Austerity)

In those "Opposition" numbers are a "usual" NAZI party, IE a party that everyone outside the party says is neo-NAZI but who those inside the party claim it is not, and more worrying, a real NAZI party, that self-identifies as neo-NAZI. They are on track to win 20 seats.

More in-depth numbers.

55 - ND - Right(-wing) Pro(-Austerity)

49 - SYRZIA - Left Anti

42 - PASOK - Left Pro

31 - IndGrk - Right Anti

25 - Communist (anti)

20 - NAZI (anti)

16 - DemLeft - Left Pro

4 - Laos - less NAZI (Anti)

4 - Green - Green (???)

4 - DemAll - Moderate (???)

Remember these are estimates based on exit polls and current ballots cast.

The winning party in the election wins an additional 50 seats. Thus ND would win 95 seats on these numbers.

50%+1 of Greeks have voted for parties that are anti, and 40% for parties that are pro (the remaining 10% I cannot classify)

An exit poll was just released (in Greece they release them hours into counting it seems)

108 ND (I had 95)

47 SYRZIA (49)

38 PASOK (42)

30 Ind G (31)

25 Comm (25)

19 NAZI (20)

17 Dem L (16)

8 LAOS (4)

8 Grn (4)

0 DemAll (4)

Note that 8 seats is the threshold, but some/none/all of those 3 parties I have listed at 4 may not make the threshold.

Further note that my numbers are based on 2 OTHER exit polls.

My new projection is thus.

Government: (current coalition, pro-austerity)

104 ND (right)

40 PASOK (left)

TOTAL: 144

Swing: (Pro-Austerity, may remain with Government)

17 Dem L (left)

TOTAL: 17

Opposition: (Anti-Austerity)

49 SYRZIA (left)

31 Ind Grk (right)

25 Communist

20 NAZI (like, self-proclaimed NAZI)

4 LAOS (accused of being NAZI)

TOTAL: 129

Others: (I'm unable to determine their position on Austerity)

4 Grn (Green)

4 Dem All (moderate)

TOTAL: 8

In the German state, the SPD and Greens have won more than the Conservatives and Liberals. They'll need another party to form a coalition however, and the ethnic minority Danish party might do it, but the Pirates have won seats as well.

Swing: (Pro-Austerity, may remain with Government)

17 Dem L (left)

TOTAL: 17

Opposition: (Anti-Austerity)

49 SYRZIA (left)

31 Ind Grk (right)

25 Communist

Others: (I'm unable to determine their position on Austerity)

4 Grn (Green)

0 Dem All (moderate)

TOTAL: 4

Sorry for the multiple posts, but things are moving fast and furious, and the results of the Greek election could have a direct impact on Canada's economic recovery, so I hope this is okay.
