Why Political Coalitions Are Needed
In recent episodes, we have covered the run up to the 2019 presidential campaign and the political negotiations that have been involved, particularly the coalition building between political parties. We also discussed how parties are scrambling to form coalitions to meet presidential thresholds. Some listeners have requested that I provide background on why political coalitions are even needed and which parties are building them.
