The new Baja California Republic had four political parties:
 
Current Ruling Party: Baja Democracy Party (Centre Right )
Opposition Party: Baja Liberal Party (Centre Left)
Others: Socialist Way (Left), Ecologist Green Party (Centre Right)
 
The two smaller parties had only a small number of members, making their chances of getting into power very small, with the main two parties being dominant in Baja California politics.

International Border Crossings were suddenly and without warning closed until further notice. The San Ysidro Port of Entry which is the main border crossing would suddenly close its barriers and refuse any vehicle or person permission to cross in or out without the correct paperwork. The usual well known line of endless cars coming in and out would give way to less packed roadways, as the country closed the border.

 

The Baja California Republic Government would release the following :

 

 


The Land Air and Sea borders are closed until further notice. We are going through a political transition and we would like to do this in isolation. The Baja California Republic Government will release a subsequent statement when this period of isolation is completed.

 

Any deliberate violation of Baja California Republic sovereignty will be dealt with accordingly.

With the American Commonwealth's blessing, a referendum would be made to see whether the Protectorate east of the Baja California Republic would like to join it. After two weeks of preparatory work, the referendum would go ahead with American Commonwealth observers invited to oversee it and make sure that it passed without any incident:

 

Three questions would be posed:

 

Join as part of the Baja California Republic
 
Separate State with Baja California Republic Support
 
Join the American Commonwealth

 

 


 

AMERICAN PROTECTORATE REFERENDUM RESULTS

 

Question: What should the Protectorate's Future be as?

 

Join as part of the Baja California Republic creating a Federation: 63%

 

Join with Baja California Republic as a Semi Autonomous State: 29%

 

Join the American Commonwealth: 8%

 

 

With this referendum completed, ground and air forces would be moved in to take over security from the American Commonwealth. At the same time the first preparations would be made for the inclusion of the protectorate into what would be a relatively enlarged state which would be called the United Mexican States, with the Capital moved to Ciudad Juarez.

Government Approval is up five per cent as Public Opinion backs their new plans for the MLA conflict. Decisions to disengage ground forces for the time being is a vital factor in the reclamation of support. This prompts President David Gonzales to call a Presidential Election to capitalise on the new-found support. Opposition Parties call this decision "Shameless Opportunism.

The results of the election meant that the Mexican Democracy Party and President David Gonzales would return to power, meaning that the promised reforms and modernisation would continue. The war with the MLA would also continue, with the Mexican Liberal Party's pledge to negotiate a treaty with the MLA being decisively rejected by the voters.
