the federation becomes more democratized in the future ?
which makes them even more controllable for the PortugueseI just noticed that Ethiopia and Kenya are fucked by annexing Somali regions they’ve doomed themselves with having constantly rebellious population in those regions and even more so with Ethiopia already holding the Ogaden
The short answer is no, but even though the National Party continues to control national, provincial governments it has for last 50 years been forced to share governance on the local level. The opposition parties (there are over 20 different parties at the local and provincial level ) do play a very important role (if somewhat limited) in keeping the government accountable. Portuguese democracy is sort of best described as limited democracy with opposition parties holding the various government officials and bureaucracy accountable and in some cases forcing about changes by government or even reassignment or firing. The opposition parties have two major obstacles in gaining control. First the need to gain enough of the population support during the election and due to the ranked ballot those that vote for candidates or parties who do not win enough votes to get elected the vote then is cast to the second and third choice. Secondly the governing party appoints the chamber of deputies which exists in the national and provincial level. Lastly the National Assembly is subordinate to the Triunvante and government cabinet.the federation becomes more democratized in the future ?
Yes we will cover both immigration and emigration in the security section. What we can discuss is that the sources of that emigration does change plus the expansion of commonwealth full members from a few to almost 20 within a decade changes dynamics of demographics.Many immigrants in the future of the federation
These projects may be of course a reflection of Portuguese power but they also represent a better, more cooperative future for the people of Africa. Hard to disapprove very much.
The rail expansion in the Federation during the 1950s and 1960s had a huge economic impact on the country with not only mining, forestry being able to be expanded but also the ability to open the country to better economic development. The first connections were Guinea Boke and Katanga that experienced economic development with expanded rail network (in case of Katanga ) and new railway for Guinea Boke. But the case was made both in the federation and initial commonwealth countries of the benefits.God, the sheer economic impact the continental Rail System is going to have on Africa. It's near certain the non French-Federation aligned countries will eventually push to connect their own Transportation networks with the existing Federation network by the 90s.
Hi not sure how this comment fits into Portuguese federation in the 20 century. Now if you are commenting on Portuguese ship building in the 1960s we can discuss that here.The Portuguese controlled a lot of trade routes
Shipbuilding was important if they had built some major shipyards in Brazil with access to lots of high-quality lumber, they would have been able to produce more ships and had a much larger percentage of Global World Trade
The profits from that could have funded other things
The ship building and lumber industry would attract immigrants to Brazil leading to more Economic Development in the area
So this question/comment deserved its own response as we are dealing with the EEC not EU in the 1960s. Yes I understand that iTOL EEC became EU but the circumstances for EU creation may not exist iTTL.As unlikely as it is if both the French and the Federation were part of the E.U., they could be followed by the French Outre Mer and the Commonwealth prompting the organization to become World Government. It's a nice dream.
I just noticed that Ethiopia and Kenya are fucked by annexing Somali regions they’ve doomed themselves with having constantly rebellious population in those regions and even more so with Ethiopia already holding the Ogaden
Yes the situation in region is not the best. Let’s do a small recap.which makes them even more controllable for the Portuguese
From what I've seen in the intro, the GDI is formed. Does that mean that the GDI would be the new EU?
Hm…. WDA, in 2021 there is more of a detente and there are three major alliances. The Western/NATO, the Communist Block and Latin/Lusitania Alliance. What complicates is that both Federation and France belong to both NATO and Latin Alliances.I meant World Defense Alliance or WDA
