anada’s management question: majority, coalition or minority government ?

So are the times just in Canada that a national election is actually being fought on the size of the prize.
With rare vehemence, Stephen Harper, said that unless the Conservatives achieving a "stable national majority" Canada will face a Liberal-NDP coalition backed by the separatist Bloc Quebecois. Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff said Saturday, in a written statement and a press conference. His rejection has two problems: (1) not completed and (2) puts it in the position of defending the status quo adhockery minorities.
"Whoever leads the party that wins most seats in the election day must be called to form the government," Ignatieff said. "If that's the Liberal Party, then you need to find quickly the confidence of the newly elected Parliament. If our government can not win the support of the House, then Mr. Harper called to form a government and face the same challenge. That is our Constitution. It is the law of the land. "
He described the coalition as "a legitimate constitutional option," but pledged to work with other parties on an issue by issue. "
The reverse takeover stressed lined up what is most likely to happen: the Conservatives win more seats and more votes. The choice of your statement is what keeps almost exactly what almost took place in the winter of 2008. Instead of approving a Speech from the Throne and wait six weeks, Ignatieff was released to a confidence vote immediately on a victorious minority Harper to form a coalition / agreement with the NDP. The Governor General is conceivable you could use it to form a government if it could not support stable fashion for at least one opposition party of another.
Of course, Ignatieff carry out other press conferences and can promise to give a new Harper government reasonable time to govern and keep praising the virtue of multi-party minority government of multiple crises.
But instead of speculating about what the leaders can say to each other, and the Governor General, after the elections, we will re-elections and the people.
A formal coalition Liberal-NDP coalition against Harper's Conservatives would give voters direct power to elect a clear winner. Democracy and governance would be strengthened. A center-left coalition would be taken seriously simple and would be legitimate, if the Liberals and the NDP recognizes the option now.
However, both Ignatieff, Jack Layton and are formally a campaign to win outright to be the next prime minister, that the minority government work. Ignatieff enthusiastically in the register of Lester Pearson's minority governments in the sixties.
The possibility of another minority government can sound better than the prospect of a coalition government, but not necessarily more attractive than the alternative-a stable majority. After three minorities in 1968, Canadians elected a majority of no-nonsense. The winner, Pierre Trudeau, was contemptuous of minorities Pearson hesitation, promised to strengthen and reform, and dared people to make a clear decision.
This year could be bad for Ignatieff to run as a liberal Pearson.
