The Chawosaurian Legislative Elections of 2009 was a midterm election held during Communist Supreme Leader Timothy Max Roosevelt's third decade and 33rd year of being Supreme Leader. The Communist Coalition retained their majority but underperformed to serve in the 2010-2015 Government governing with their weakest majority in Chawosaurian History.
In the 2009 Elections, where the Communist Coalition nearly lost their first election by a few states and seats in the Chawopolis Palace, where the Communist Coalition won a plurality, losing their supermajority.
Part of the Millennial Revolution, where the effects of the 2007 Comrade Elections began to sweep across Chawosauria, the Millennial Fire Wall began to appear. The notable Chawosaurians elected in 2009 is in Australia, Cosgrove W. Roosevelt, the grandson of the then-current dictator, Timothy Max Roosevelt, whose power is extremely weakened by this election. If the Communist Coalition lost Brazil and Argentina, the Democratic Socialist Coalition would've been the majority party, and Timothy would've had no legislative power.
A Realigning Election, some groups began to de-align from the Cold War Coalition, these groups are LGBTQ Chawosaurians, Intellectuals, Left-Wing Populists, Left-Wing Nationalists, Freethinkers, Agnostics, Humanists, Proletariat Chawosaurians, Renaissance Chawosaurians, Indigenous, and Polynesian Chawosaurians.
This election was considered a major defeat for Timothy Max Roosevelt, his worst election since 1989, but the worst election suffered by Timothy, worse than 1989, 111 states were lost in 2009, but 47 states were lost in 1989.
This election result attributed to anger towards Chawosaurian Prime Minister Joe Bohmer for his alienating advocacy for Freedom of Religion in Chawosauria, as the term "freedom of religion" is an extremely unpopular term in Chawosauria, with 98% of Chawosaurians at that time opposed religious freedom and supported State Atheism, while 1% supported religious freedom and opposed state atheism. This election also attributed to anger towards rising inflation, and Chawosaurian Christianity's slightly improving population.
This electoral result historically happens when the Supreme Leader stays in power for more than a couple decades, the Supreme Leader's party or coalition either loses a drastic number of seats or worse, their whole majority. Timothy Max Roosevelt had been in power as Supreme Leader for 33 years as of 2009. It also happened in 1945, under Emperor Santiago, who had been Supreme Leader for 45 years as of 1945, and his eighth midterm election resulted in his Liberal Party government, not only lost a drastic number of seats, their whole majority in the Chawopolis Palace, Santiago suffered this midterm defeat worse than Timothy did. Ironically, Timothy was the Leader of the Opposition against Santiago at that time.
Almost a decade later on December 27, 2018, the Communist Party of Chawosauria successfully had Joe Bohmer removed from Chawosaurian History as part of their "Let's not get Bohmered again!" manifesto, due to Joe Bohmer's defectious advocacy for the legalization of Religion in Chawosauria, leading to 215 Communist politicians losing their seats to George Windsor's Social Democratic candidates.
Background and Context Edit
The Chawosaurian Legislative Elections of 2009 actually resulted in the largest Capitalist Parties picking up an unprecedented number of seats from the Communists, resulted in Timothy having little weaker power, but the Capitalists failed to win the Chawopolis Palace. 111 states and 215 seats have indicated a big defeat for the Communist Party. Timothy Max Roosevelt's approval ratings are still at 100%, but the Millennials dashed Timothy's political influence over the Chawopolis Palace.
Anti-Communist Sentiment (2007-2018) Edit
Between 2007 to 2018, there was rising Anti-Communist sentiment arising in Chawosauria and there was a demand for Social Democracy. This anti-communist sentiment influenced the elections of 2009 and 2017 (except for 2015 because of Timothy Max Roosevelt and Antonio Kingston's deaths).
Major Defeat for Timothy Max Roosevelt Edit
Timothy's political influence over the Chawopolis Palace has crumbled, but the Communist Party maintains their majority but lost their supermajority. Under Chawosaurian Law, a supermajority in the Chawopolis Palace is required for a Supreme Leader if he wants absolute power.
When Timothy heard about the election results, that his Communist Supermajority crumbled into a Communist Majority, Timothy was furious and upset and hated the Millennials.
