What is a coalition government?
Coalition government means alliances of several parties. This situation arises, if no party on its own can achieve majority in the Parliament. To have strong coalitions, it is necessary that political parties must moderate their ideologies and programme.
A coalition government is where two or more political parties join together in parliament/assembly to run the government and agree on a policy programme. Examples are Wales where Labour and Plaid Cymru have agreed a set of policies, but still campaign against each other outside of the national assembly and Luxembourg where the CSV and LSAP work together for the good of Luxembourg.
