List of countries with coalition governments

A coalition government is a cabinet of a parliamentary government in which several parties cooperate. The usual reason given for this arrangement is that no party on its own can achieve a majority in the parliament. A coalition government might also be created in a time of national difficulty or crisis, for example during wartime, to give a government the high degree of perceived political legitimacy it desires whilst also playing a role in diminishing internal political strife. In such times, parties have formed all-party coalitions. If a coalition collapses, a confidence vote is held or a motion of no confidence is taken. For the purposes of this list, coalitions can come in two forms. The first is produced by two or more parties joining forces after fighting elections separately to form a majority government. However, some coalitions or alliances are already decided before elections to give the parties the best chance of immediate government after the election.

                                               

2010 Cabinet of the Zimbabwe Government of National Unity

In June 2010, Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai reshuffled the portion of the cabinet appointed by his party, within the Government of National Unity that was formed on 13 February 2009. Ministers appointed by the other two parties were not reshuffled. The Cabinet was again mildly reshuffled in July 2015.

                                               

Actions of the Kurz cabinet

This is a list of notable actions of the first Kurz cabinet, an Austrian coalition government that until 18 May 2019 comprised the Peoples Party and the Freedom Party. The Peoples Party is led by Chancellor Sebastian Kurz and the Freedom Party was led by Vice Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache. All members of the Austrian cabinet are equal and supreme within the executive branch, which runs counter to the common case where the head of state and/or head of government directs a cabinet of subordinates. By law, decisions are therefore truly made collectively among the members of cabinet, and not just by the Chancellor with the assistance and advice of the cabinet. In practice, however, cabinet members are de facto commanded by the leaders of their party.

                                               

Alliance (Sweden)

The Alliance, formerly the Alliance for Sweden, was a centre-right political alliance in Sweden. The Alliance consisted of the four centre-right political parties in the Riksdag. The Alliance was formed while in opposition, and later achieved a majority government in the 2006 general election and a minority government in the 2010 general election, governing Sweden from 2006 to 2014 with Fredrik Reinfeldt of the Moderate Party serving as Prime Minister of Sweden until 2014. The Alliance was co-chaired by every component partys individual leaders. After defeat in 2014, the Moderate Partys parliamentary group leader Anna Kinberg Batra announced to the Riksdag that the political alliance "would operate in opposition". On 11 January 2019, during the 2018-19 Swedish government formation, the Centre and Liberals agreed to tolerate a social democratic government - allowing Stefan Lofven to continue serving as Prime Minister. Both Ulf Kristersson and Ebba Busch Thor denounced the agreement, with Busch Thor calling the Alliance "a closed chapter".
