Previous First Senator
The Election of 1843 was marked incredibly by the issue of Dueling, the Unionists taking the staunchest stance against it. They ended up winning 173 seats and forming a a tentative coalition government with the Agrarians who believed Cedrik Cottfried a better candidate than Godin. The composition of the new government is reflected on the chart and party positioning, with the two government parties coming first, and opposition or non-affiliated second.
