So, going forward I want to explain a few things before I get into the needs of having parties. 1) Why Parties? Parties are power houses and force government to function. Without parties a lot of what you see falls apart. Without parties a lot of infighting happens and a lot of cohesiveness thinking does not occur. So instead, people have formed parties to form political power houses to push through legislation. This allows special interest groups (like mothers for drunk driving) to have a say in government. This also happens naturally (as we can see with the U.S. system) because people wish to band together and have each others backs. As well, when campaigning people form party platforms (be it their own plat forms, however need staffers to do thing) to raise money. This in turn creates a system of donations in which a party becomes an economic power house. My point being parties are useful for a legislative agenda and elections through economic power. 2) How to keep parties at bay. To keep parties at bay it's important to have an oversight. A council that over sees legislation and or a council that oversees elections is needed to keep parties under the people's foot. In modern government we see this through in the US system the senate, the UK system the lordship, and others an electoral commission such being like India. --- Now, why would this be necessary? Simple, the larger a council grows the more unorganized it gets. As such, we have the problem presented here. We only have seven members in parliament. However, as soon as we break a 20-30 player thresh hold we will start to see infighting. This is where the party system kicks in. Forcing the electorate in parties allows us to force them to comply to laws. In the same way businesses are held to their department's standards, the party's actions will be held to the standard's of the Electoral Commission. How could we implement this? Easily actually. Allow players to vote for a party directly without the direct vote of MPs and create an upper chamber like a staff commission or an electoral commission which would be held by staffers. The EC would be liable to parliamentary changes, however would be bound to the constitutional guidelines of the nation (we would need to create a constitution). Further more, we would force parties to create manifestos to provide what they would like to implement legislative wise and then allow a campaign season for them. Lastly, we would make the appointment of PM isolated from these parties through the EC. The EC will handle the elections over all and have direct oversight over the appointments and campaigns. Effectively isolating the PM from all parliamentary contact during and after the campaign season (unless for official business). This is the kind of system we could implement to allow the server to have a more diverse and effective political landscape when it comes to the parliamentary.
