Elections of Kalistan
The Democratic Labor Party (Kali: Ҳизби меҳнат демократӣ, tr. Hizbi mehnat demokratī) was founded in March 3874 to restore native Kali rule to Kalistan. The DLP is headed by former businessman Umarali Azziov, a former head of a Kalistani metal working factory. The Democratic Labor Party and the Kali people maintain close ties with their ancestral Trigunian brothers and sister, the Kali people underwent Ahmadization centuries ago and elements of the Democratic Labor Party favor a Ahmadi democracy in Kalistan, however the majority of the party does not.
The Democratic Labor Party wants to restore the Kalistani Democratic Republic, a government that was founded in the early 20th century and eventually was over run by the current pretender Kalistani government. The Democratic Labor Party replaced the National Republican Committee as the leading party of the Kalistani government-in-exile in Trigunia.
The Democratic Labor Party has it roots in the National Republican Committee of the Kalistani government-in-exile, the government which has lead the efforts to restore native Kali rule to Kalistan since 3860 and historically since the early 20th century. The National Republic Committee announced that it was going to found a political party in Kalistan to attempt to uproot the current government and restore native Kali rule to the country. Umarali Azziov, the former head of one of the largest metal working facilities in Kalistan announced that he would fund the development of Kalistani party and would go on to be its candidate for President, the National Republican Committee folded into the Democratic Labor Party and the DLP took over rule of the Kalistani government-in-exile.
