PM Loses His Election Nerve - Have You?

11th October 2007

With the prospect of an immediate snap election ruled out, you now have more time to organise your party and plan your political strategy before the next ballot. It’s up to you to shape policies and gain support - will you make hard hitting, controversial decisions or play it safe to remain Prime Minister?

Pledge to put your predecessors to shame by organising the healthcare system and improving education. Remember to keep an eye on your budget as time goes by and try not to build up huge debts– the fate of the nation is in your hands.

You need to understand your country and the vastly conflicting opinions of its voters. Think far ahead in order to impact positively on your future success. Every change you make will have repercussions and can ultimately affect your staying power.

Can you keep the majority happy with your policy decisions, or will cynicism grow until you are ousted from power?

Bide your time– the people will decide.

Democracy is a political strategy game on PC from Ascaron Entertainment. Take control of countries modelled on real democratic nations such as the UK, USA, France, Germany or Sweden. As Prime Minister or President, you’ll need 50% of the vote at each election in order to remain in power. Think strategically to secure your position for as long as possible– implement controversial new policies and solve national crises to placate or rile your voters.

Democracy is available from February 2008.
