politics and government of
Earlier in the year Grand Duchess Marie-Adélaïde had appointed a right-wing minority government. However, the government was unable to properly function due to its lack of a majority in the Chamber of Deputies. Marie-Adélaïde then dissolved the Chamber and called new elections.
Although the Party of the Right increased their representation from 20 to 25 seats, they were still short of a majority. The Hubert Loutsch government lost a vote of confidence on 11 January 1916 and resigned. Marie-Adélaïde's interference in domestic politics was strongly criticised by left-wing parties, and was partially responsible for her being forced to abdicate in favour of Charlotte in 1919.
