The Moderate Radical Party of Talossa is a Talossan political party. Initially known as simply the Moderate Radical Party (MRP), the name was changed in 2012 to avoid confusion with a former party of the Republic of Talossa sharing that same acronym.
The party currently has twenty-three members, including four Senators a number of current and former Cabinet officials, and formerly including party co-founder and current Secretary of State Glüc da Dhi. The official colours of the MRPT are #126ECC (Moderate Blue) and #FF6600 (Radical Orange) and its mascot and symbol is a seahorse.

The newly formed Moderate Radicals contested their first General Elections in late 2011; the party was composed of two members, both former Progressive Party members: the sitting Senator for Cézembre and former Member of the Cosa for the PP Glüc da Dhi, and his predecessor as Senator and current MC for the PP Alexandreu Soleiglhfred. The party gained three votes, which translated into eight seats in the Cosa and status as the fourth largest party; Moderate Radical MZs never missed a vote during the 43rd Cosa. At the end of the 43rd Cosa the party decided to avoid confusion with a preexisting party by switching to the acronym MRPT, rather than MRP, and also adopted a new logo featuring the new mascot of the party, the seahorse, created by Alèxandreu Soleighlfred. By the end of its first term, the party had doubled its membership to four members.
The MRPT fielded a candidates list of three prospective MCs and won twelve votes in the General Elections, resulting in 18 seats in the Cosa, an increase of 10 seats. For the first time, the party received votes from citizens of other provinces than Cézembre and in fact scored second places in three provinces: Cézembre, Fiova and Vuode. MRPT MZs were again the only caucus to take part in all votes. During this term the party voted on party statutes, resulting in the organization of the first MRPT congress, which was held from 2/5/2013 to 3/5/2013. During the term the MRPT again doubled its membership.
The MRPT gained thirteen votes in the General Elections, resulting in 21 seats in the Cosa, three more than the previous term. The lone MRPT senator, party leader Glüc da Dhi, was also reelected by defeating RUMP's Ian da Bitour 7-2. The MCs representing the MRPT in the 45th Cosa are Alexandreu Soleiglhfred (acting as Whip), Lüc da Schir and Ben Putnam, with seven seats each. Again, the MRPT completed this Cosâ without a single failure to vote.
A combination of post-Reunision immigration, fatigue from the longstanding RUMP control of the government, the poor performance of the Nordselva government and the rising profile of opposition parties led to a breakthrough in the elections for the 46th Cosa, with the MRPT winning 56 seats and becoming the leading party in a new government coalition with ZRT and LPR. The party also elected an additional senator with Tric'hard Carschaleir winning a special election in Benito. MRPT MC Andrinescu resigned shortly before the 3rd Clark to join the newly formed Liberal Congress.
The government ultimately fell when MRPT MC Soleiglhfred failed to vote in the 5th Clark and caused the Vote of Confidence to fail; this prompted early elections and was the first failure to vote by a member of the MRPT in three years.
The MRPT received 44 seats in the General Elections, of which two were handed to the Progressive Party acknowledging a voter's desire to change his vote because he was not informed that the PP was contesting the elections and he was still in their candidates list. The seats were so apportioned: eleven each to Sevastáin Pinátsch (the new Party Whip) and Tric'hard Carschaleir, ten each to Lupulüc da Fhöglha and Renalt da Fhamul. Two former MCs were elected to the Senate, Lüc da Schir and Magniloqueu da Lhiun, joining Glüc da Dhi and marking the first time ever in the MRPT's history that the party holds a plurality in a house of the Ziu.
The party remained in control of the government with a coalition extended to the Liberal Congress, which previously offered external support, and the Progressive Party, which did not contest the previous elections, and without the Republican Party, which merged back into the ZRT. The MRPT's leader, Lüc da Schir, replaced his colleague Glüc da Dhi as the new Prime Minister. Ultimately, the coalition enjoyed a larger Cosa majority and a Senate majority as well, after the previous government was hampered by being tied with the RUMP caucus in the Senate.
The MRPT received 46 seats in the General Election; despite the gain in seats, the party was leapfrogged in second place by the newly formed Free Democratic Alliance, a joint list by the ZRT and Liberal Congress, by a single seat. Liberal Congress leader Xheraltescu had previously sought an alliance with the MRPT as well. For a second straight election, the MRPT added a senator to its caucus while losing one, as former party leader and Senator for Cézembre Glüc da Dhi temporarily retired from national politics; outgoing party whip Sevastáin Pinátsch was instead elected to the Atatürk Senate seat, unseating the sitting Dean of the Senate, four term senator Brad Holmes, by 11-5.
The party took part in a coalition with the Free Democrats and the Progressives, which it left during the last Clark following internal disagreements. Former party whip Breneir Itravilatx also left the MRPT to head a new political party, the Talossan National Congress.
After a poor performance in the previous coalition and leader da Schir acknowledging that the party needed time to regroup and refocus, the MRPT received 37 seats in the General Election. 10 seats were given to Ian Plätschisch and 9 to Glüc da Dhi, Martì Vataldestreça and Erschéveþ da Schir each. Senator da Lhiun was also reelected in Maritiimi-Maxhestic, defeating a challenge from former Prime Minister Alexandreu Davinescu.
Ultimately, the MRPT chose to join a coalition with the RUMP and the TNC.
Following a good performance in the coalition government, better campaigning and renewed enthusiasm, the MRPT scored a record win in the elections for the 50th Cosa, roughly doubling both the number of votes won and seats held in the Cosa. Ultimately, the party won 79 seats in the General Election. Ian Plätschisch was given 14 seats, and Glüc da Dhi, Alèxandreu Soleighlfred, Txoteu Davinescu, Erschéveþ da Schir, and Martì Vataldestreça were all given 13 seats. Party leader Lüc da Schir also defeated a challenge to his own Senate seat by Free Democrat and former Senator Iason Taiwos, winning with two thirds of the vote in the first senatorial race ever to feature a clash between members of the two parties; Atatürk senator Pinátsch also retained his seat.
The MRPT and the Free Democrats formed a two party coalition, with Senator da Schir as Prime Minister.
The Moderate Radicals followed up on a positive term at the helm of the government with a second consecutive election victory; by winning 83 Cosa seats, the MRPT scored the largest increase in the number of seats by the leading government party since the 42nd Cosa elections (RUMP 108 -> 143) and, in the same timeframe, the first time the leading government party incremented its seats while retaining control of the government, as in the previous term the RUMP had left government despite gaining a seat.
With Glüc da Dhi recapturing Cézembre's Senate seat before the general elections, the MRPT was also poised to become the first party to gain majority control of the Senate in four years, but missed the chance with Txoteu Davinescu falling to Béneditsch Ardpresteir in the open race to succeed Munditenens Tresplet as Senator for Maricopa; this was the first competitive Senate race awarded through IRV.
The previous coalition was confermed, with an expanded Cosa majority but a reduced Senate majority, and mostly the same ministers.
On the Senate:
On the Cosa:
On the secret ballot: The MRPT is happy with the current amendment to introduce a semi-secret ballot, but would like to go one step further and introduce a full automated secret ballot for Cosâ and Senatorial elections, under the condition that a diverse independent committee has access to the admin account to monitor the elections.
On separation of power:
On citizenship and privacy:
On provincial assignment:
On Laws of the Kingdom:
On awards and recognition:
On judicial reform: The MRPT is committed to reforming the Royal Talossan Bar, in a way that allows competent and dedicated prospective barristers to be admitted to the Bar through a period of apprenticeship and an automated law exam. Unless the Royal Society can guarantee regular, scheduled law courses, attendance and graduation should not be compulsory to seek admission to the Bar. Measures will be sought to ensure that such a reform is reached with broad, nonpartisan consensus.

Eight Talossans and former Talossans used to be members of the MRPT at some point, but they left the party due to different reasons.
Left for a different party (3):
- Munditenens da Biondeu, who left before the Elections for the 45th Cosa to join the RUMP, then joined the Free Democrats and eventually renounced citizenship.
- Éovart Andrinescu who left in March 2014 to join the then newly-founded Liberal Congress (now part of the Free Democrats).
- Breneir Itravilatx who left in October 2015 to form a new progressive political party, the Talossan National Congress.

- Iac Marscheir who renounced his citizenship in December 2018.
- Alèxandreu Soleighlfred also quit Talossa soon after renouncing his MRPT membership, but rejoined in September 2016.
Renounced for other reasons (3):
- Adam and Melania da Simeon, both quitting in the last days of 2013 after they were both found to be more than four years younger than their claimed age.
- Party founder Glüc da Dhi, who renounced his membership in the MRPT to accept the office of Secretary of State.
The MRPT currently has 69 seats in the Cosa.

The MRPT organizes a meeting of its members, known as the Congress, before every General Election. The congress usually lasts around four weeks and features guest speakers, decisions on party policies and appointment to party offices. The presence of guest speakers and the importance of the decisions taken by party members during the congress make the MRPT Congress one of the biggest political events of the year in Talossa.

Italicized candidate names indicates they were also standing for a Senate seat.
The MRPT is a democratic party in which most decisions are made by the membership of the party. On 18 January 2013 the members approved statutes for the party. All information about the MRPT can be found in the Party Digest which is issued by the Party Secretary.
The Party Leader is the chief executive of the party, normally elected every other Congress. He is responsible for every party office that isn’t filled by any other member, except that of campaign leader. This office is currently filled by Ian Plätschisch, elected during the Eighth Congress. All decisions made by the party leader can be overruled by the members of the party. So far, every Party Leader has always sat in the Senate during his tenure, although this is not a statutory requirement.
|#1||Glüc da Dhi||August 2011||3 years|
|#2||Lüc da Schir||11 August 2014||3 years, 9 months, 4 weeks|
|#3||Ian Plätschisch||8 June 2018||(ongoing)|
The Party Whip is the leader of the MRPT's caucus in the Cosa and effectively the Deputy Leader of the Moderate Radicals. The Party Whip is responsible for leading the internal monthly discussion on the Clark, getting all the MCs of the party focused and on the same line and acting as a spokesperson for certain decisions made by the MRPT MCs.
Should the MRPT get seats in the Cosa, the candidate who was the Cosa list leader will become Party Whip. The Party Leader appoints a Whip for the upcoming term during every Congress, which effectively makes the position part of a ticket, especially in case of a concurring leadership election; case in point, the "da Dhi - Soleiglhfred" and "da Schir - Plätschisch" leadership teams, both of which lasted for the greater part of the respective leader's tenure.
Should the Party Whip resign or vacate his Cosa seats, the MC who was next on the candidate list for that Cosa becomes the Party Whip. This has happened twice so far.

Deputy Party Whip
This is not an official position, but a provision in the Party Statutes implies that the second placed candidate on the Cosa list is the next-in-line to be Party Whip, and as such is effectively the Deputy Party Whip. Given that the Party Whip is usually the Deputy Leader of the party, this theoretically makes the Deputy Party Whip the third highest ranked officer within the MRPT.
As the Whip is appointed by the leader, this is effectively the second highest elected position within the party.

The Party Secretary is an optional office the Party Leader can appoint. The Party Secretary’s duties include updating the Party Digest and other party documents, and conducting elections and referendums outside the Congress and election season. The current holder of this office is Alèxandreu Soleighlfred.
MRPT statutes also used to provide for a Party Speaker (a spokesperson) and a Party Recruiter, however these offices have never been appointed. These positions were repealed altogether following the Eighth Congress.
