These elections gave the sitting "Purple cabinet" of PfdA, FFD and D87 an almost 2/3rd majority in the Twadde Keamer, they came one seat short. Eventhough the coalition grew in total, D87 lost almost half their seats the former party leader and founder of the party spoke the legendary words "regearje is halvearje" - to rule is to halve. After some heavy discussions between the former coalition partners the PfdA and the FFD conviced the now very small D87 to continue the Purple cabinet and give Blueacia "Cabinet Purple 2, or Weber 2". The small size of D87 gave a unique moment in Blueacian history. After just a year one of D87 biggest goals the "corrective referendum" didn't get the 2/3 majority in the City Counsil. After this the D87 ministers resigned from their position in the cabinet. Prime Minister Joris Weber tried for a week to meant the wounds with the D87 but to no succes. The D87 didn't want to be in the cabinet just to be there. Joris Weber hereafter went to the Prince to present him with the resignation of the whole cabinet with the goal of having new elections. But the Prince didn't accept this, Joris Weber had to try one more time to get the D87 back on the ship, and if they really didn't want to come back he should try and finish the term with only the FFD. After a second attempt to meant thing with the D87 again without succes, Joris Weber announced that from that moment on he would govern with only PfdA and the FFD. Weber 3 fell after 3 more years
