Politics, governance, and policy development depends on those in power (McNair, 2016). In the first election, the legislature will be comprised of; Lettuce (38), Chile (44), Tomato (40), Artichoke (32), and Cabbage (46). Since no single party controls an outstanding majority, it will be critical that parties compromise on their stand on different issues. With a proportional representation, each party would be allowed to have the same number of representatives, in this case each party would choose 40 representatives. A majority winners would have an insignificant impact in the composition of the legislature since this is the first election. Most people currently stand by what those in their respective firms believe is the best way forward.
The second election would most likely spark new interests as those who were defeated in the first election and those wishing to view after three years will be keen on making comments that can see them elected. Policies on the government’s impact and influence on agriculture will dominate in most campaigns as a recap on whether those policies were effective or not will become the main subject. The best approach for those seeking elective positions will be to analyze the public’s position.
The third election would most likely have three political parties. Two extremist groups will hold that either the government directly influences farming while another will be against any government interference. Another group (Artichoke and Tomato) will seek to establish a limited government regulation. This group may attract more supporters with time.
