2. Party Platform ConferenceParty Platform:
A party’s platform is defined by the 5Party Policy cards they have face up in front.
Beginning with the starting party, thencontinuing clockwise, each party may do the following.
If Party Policy hand size is less than 3 cards thendraw to 3 from the draw pile.
Discard as many cards as desired from the
Again draw to a hand size of 3.
Party may now discard a face up Party Policy cardand replace it face up with a card from their hand.
Coincidence Rating 
The number of coinciding PartyPolicy cards to Public Opinion cards helps determinethe number of votes obtained in a state.
3. Shadow Cabinet ActionsProcedure:
In turn, each party plays up to 4 ShadowCabinet cards, each face down next to a state, notmore than 1 card per state per party each round.After all cards are placed by all parties, turn them allover; each party pays the card’s cost to the bank.In turn each party carries out 1 action per card for eachof their cards. Remove played cards from the game.
Coalition Icon
A telephone symbol in the topright of a card enables a party to join a coalitionin the state – place a coalition tile for that party there.
Shadow Cabinet Card Actions
Move your Party Marker up the Vote Track in thestate by the indicated amount.Return another party’s Media Marker from thestate to that party and replace it with one of your own. Pay that party €4,000
pay the bank €4,000.Move your Party Marker up the Popularity Scalein the state by the amount indicated. Popularitymay never be greater than +3.Move another party’s Party Marker down thePopularity Scale in the state by the indicatedamount. Popularity may never be less than –3.
Control of the media does not protect against this.
Designate 1 issue in the state as a
key issue
put a Key Issue tile on 1 of the state’s face upPublic Opinion cards.
 Remove a Key Issue tile in the state, reducing a PublicOpinion card back to a normal issue.
Key Issue
Double the importance of this issue whenconverting Meeting Markers to votes. Only 1Key Issue Tile may be in effect in a state at anytime. An issue with a Key Issue Tile on it can'tbe removed until it is reduced to a normal issue.
4. Form CoalitionsOverview:
Coalition partners add their votes together this election. Coalitions may only be formed in thecurrent state, only involving 2 parties – though theremay be multiple coalitions. Only parties with a CoalitionTile on the current state board may join a coalition.
2 parties may form a
coalition if at least 2 of their Party Policy cards are identical. Bothparties must agree to form the coalition.
If at least 3 of their Party Policy cards areidentical then a party may
a coalition on another.
Beginning with the starting party thencontinuing clockwise, each party decides if they wish torequest a voluntary coalition or force a coalition onanother. Stack the Coalition Tiles of the 2 coalitionpartners together.A party already in a coalition may not enter into a 2
,whether voluntary or forced.
Parties not in a coalition take back their Coalition Tiles; parties in a coalition leave their tilesstacked on the Board.
5. Buy Media Markers (Party with plurality in a state may exchange 1 Public Opinion card)Procedure:
In turn, each party may buy a MediaMarker for €4,000 and place it in any state. A partymay pass – this does not prevent them buying a MediaMarker later this phase. Continue until all partiessuccessively pass. 1 party may continue to buy MediaMarkers even if all others have passed.
Each state has 5 Media Marker spaces – oncefull no further Media Markers may be placed there.
Media Control:
Once all have passed, see if any partyhas a
of markers in each state (more MediaMarkers than any other). Starting with the last state inline for elections then counterclockwise, a party withcontrol of the media may
face up
PublicOpinion card in the state with 1 in the OrganizationBoard’s Exchange Pool that is neither identical nor contradictory to any face up cards already in the state.
 A card with a Key Issue tile may not be exchanged.
Take a Public Opinion card from the StateBoard, place it in the Exchange Pool, then take a cardfrom the Exchange Pool and place it in the emptyspace on the State Board. Place duplicates within theExchange Pool on top of each other but slightly offset.
There will be 6 cards in the Exchange Pool at any time.
Protection Against Opinion Polls
A party whocontrols the media in a state is protected against thenegative effects of published opinion polls.
