Global President 2008


Recommended Posts

There was a scenario, Global Preisident 2006, for the original Preident+Primaries. I thought I'd make a sequal of sorts to it for the new Preisdent Forever. Here is what I have come up with so far.

Parties and canidates:

Conservative

  • George W. Bush
  • Angela Merkel
  • Nicolas Sarkozy
  • Felipe Calderón
  • Stephen Harper

Liberal

  • Gordon Brown
  • Tony Blair
  • Silvio Berlusconi
  • Yasuo Fukuda
  • Kevin Michael Rudd
  • Ehud Olmert

Islamist

  • Mahmoud Ahmadineja
  • Mahmoud Abbas
  • Abdullah

Social Democrat/Socialist

  • Vladmier Putin
  • Hugo Chavez
  • Hu Jintao
  • Pratibha Kumari Patil (or Liberal not sure)
  • José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero
  • Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma

Any ideas for more canidates would be appreciated.

EDIT: More Canidates added, more coming soon.

Putin is not a social democrat, he's clearly a conservative.

How about Hysni Milloshi for the socialists? For more info:

It succeeded the APL:

He could be an underdog candidate. He'd basically be 100% hardline. (He's a Marxist-Leninist)

IRL Enver Hoxha (Albania's leader, died in 1985) led a separate Communist movement when he broke with Mao in 1978. There were pro-Albanian rebels against the pro-Soviet government in Ethiopia, pro-Albanian rebels against the pro-American government in Brazil, etc.

What system would you use?

I personally think that the Schwartzberg's weighted voting system would be the best to use.

Or the Provisional People's Assembly's method.

I agree because it seems that the Provisional People's Assembly's method seems a little bit too based on the free/not free basis which can be questionnable at a certain point.

I am keeping the Pope in as an independant (just for fun) and I will use all the canidates from both my latest list and Matvail's.

I personally am not sure what you are talking about, I assume voting systems. In addtion I don't know the different ones but will use the Schwartzberg if I can figure out how.

Hello there,

I see you included Jan Peter Balkenende, however putting him under Liberal is not correct. He should be put under Conservative, and yes I should know because I live in the Netherlands ;). Need an example of a Dutch Liberal? Geert Wilders.

To be honest he does nearly nothing in our country, and it is already the 4th government under his "command" as Prime Minister. He's a Reformed Protestant by the way.
