Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If I understand correctly, the election was as much a take-over by one faction of the Ruling Class against the other factions.

That's my understanding.

The "coup" was not about ideology or dogma: it was about business, and it's not something that many of the protagonists are prepared to die for now that it's going pear-shaped.
