Somewhere in the USA. Probably older than you. And something about MLP:FIM makes me want to write stories. Unfortunately, being gainfully employed cuts into my writing time.

The results of Equestria’s parliamentary elections are in! To report the results, Princess Celestia sends out her new Minister of Elections... Discord.

Glorious. Magnificent. Have a Discookie.

5230117 Your Discookie better not have macadamia nuts.

Hee hee, yes dear ponies the Equestrian Parliament is a courtesy, no actual power it's merely a fancy advisory committee

Good thing that Princess Celestia still has power or Equestria would be under the absolute rule of crooks and puppets of Queen Chrysilis

LOL, politicians are politicians, no matter where you are. I'd vote for Pinkie Pie any day, though.

There's being hidebound by tradition and then there's blatent corruption, holy hell that was some blatant gerrymandering and voter fraud going on.

Because who better to reform a hopelessly disharmonious branch of government than Discord?

Most entertaining. Thank you for it. :twilightsmile:

I was terribly afraid there would be partisan bickering and preaching in both the story and comments.

I am very glad I'm proven wrong. Now if that's a sign of the maturity of the people here or a sign of their youth and apathy in regards to government, I can't tell. Frankly, I don't care. Good show!

Ah, the Equestrian Princess Motto: Quia Ego Sic Dico

*Claps*

As someone who's state is last in finishing it's governor race and is STILL counting votes to make sure results are, "accurate", I must say I REALLY like Discord here.

5231204 It's a fine line to walk. So no ponies named after real world politicians, and no parallels to current, specific issues.

So, just like all ponies share harmony and the magic of friendship, all politicians are worthless. Corruption in this story is multipartisan. One might surmise that Blueblood and the deputy mayor of Fillydelphia represent different parties.

Coming soon: "Scandal! MP Pinkie Pie accused of bribing voters with cake, punch."

Wonderful! Discord: Master Diplomat.

*giggles* I love this one. That's just like Princess Celestia too to liven up a dull moment with some chaos.

Only the "Party Party"?

Shows Pinkie is taking it seriously I guess, otherwise it would be the "Party! Party! Party! Party".

As an aside, look it up. It was a "real" political party.

Note to self: write fic where Pinkie PIe is elected mayor of Ponyville.

Virginia's still trying to figure out who the (SQUEE) won, but I don't pay attention to that sort of stuff.

This was much more entertaining than actual elections, mainly because of Discord's brilliant a%%hole-ishness.

And Pinkie won?

Yet also...

Oooh, love it. If only we had Discord to fix whatever problems are government's currently happening

Let me just add to the overwhelming support for this fic. You did a great job touching on all the perennial issues of American legislative elections without being partisan, while at the same time being true to character and broad, non-stop humor expected from MLP. I feel like I could read this to my kids to explain everything wrong about the political process.

“And now, we get to kindness. That element of harmony has always held a special meaning to me, ever since my dear friend Fluttershy first warmed my cold heart.”

Element of Harmony
__________

The problems in Equestria are not based on any particular form of representative government or any particular party. It's based on all of them.

There's a difference between parties? :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::trollestia:

Congratulations to Pinkie Pie, representing the Party Party.

Not the Silly Party? :trixieshiftright:

5233191 If they had the internet, I'm sure she would have taken a leaf out of Ukraine's books.

The Internet Party: Can you imagine if 4chan, reddit, tumblr, and the rest of the internet were physical places?

*chuckles insanely*

Ha! Lovely.

Brilliant!
Discord thanks your for the the opportunity to enjoy some CHAOS of politics :derpytongue2:

This is proof that you can be a magnificent bastard and still be a good guy.:rainbowlaugh:

MORE!

we need more of discord grinding those pompous fools into the ground

ouch my lungs hurt from laughing to hard:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

Mister Fast Talk, you claimed a vote for your opponent would lead to a changeling invasion. I’m sure those were perfectly honest assessments.

As it turns out, having Celestia and Luna as absolute monarchs actually does lead to Changeling invasions.

She needs to pray her little ponies don't decide to name Twilight new Overprincess due to her and her sister's incompetence.:pinkiecrazy:

That element of harmony has always held a special meaning to me, ever since my dear friend Fluttershy first warmed my cold heart.

Cap.

Actually they are a triarchy. Or is it a Diarchy as of this fic? Since a Monarchy is ruled by one individual. Where as a Diarchy is similar but the power is held by two individuals. (Although there was a thousand year stretch where it was indeed a monarchy.)
