Politics of the Washingtonia

The Christian Libertarian Party (CLP) is the opposition and second largest political party in the Kingdom of Washingtonia. It is the result of a 1990 merger between the former opposition Libertarian Party and the third largest party, the Christian Democratic Party. The Libertarian Party was founded in 1916 as the main opposition to the monarchist Union Nationalist Party. The CLP adheres to principles of Christian libertarianism and republicanism. Although it has good relations with the Monarchy, a key part of its platform is to replace it with a system of representative democracy, where the Monarchy can simply play a ceremonial role (contrary to the current powerful Monarchy). The CLP is in a political alliance with the Liberal Party of Washingtonia.

The logo of the CLP is an amalgamation of the former logos of the Christian Democratic Party and the Libertarian Party. The CDP's logo consisted of a Christian cross while the LiP's logo was a torch.
