But I can't see how this is "interesting".

Honourable mentions:

Hungary, France.
It was a joke. I'm glad that we don't have fights in our parliament.

But Ukrainian politics were interesting! I often watched Rada TV online during Euromaidan. I didn't understand anything but reporters were tweeting in English what they voted on.

Our Parliamentary building is under complete renovating, and the parliament is in exile in a concert-hall at the Sibelius Academy.

This ascetic environment makes politics even more boring, zzzzz:

There was this Belgian politician who had an absolutely idiotic election campaign video, it was some guy with glasses, forgot his name but had a video worth watching . It was the same guy who was "schooling" Nigel Farage once in the EU parliament...

Edit: found the Farage video, but can't find the election campaign video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0M4hExU-tfg

The video was basically him riding a bike, listening to metal and holding Hitler style speeches, makes you wonder abut Belgian politics.

Then on the other side of the spectrum you have Donald Trump and Ted Cruz... Leading the GOP.

Basically the far-left and far-right are in the spotlight, and it's pretty entertaining. I hope It ends up being Sanders vs Trump. That would be fun to watch.
Trump isn't much to the right than Sanders is in economic terms, he's just called to adopt universal healthcare, he's just playing conservative to be elected into office and implement his policies whether they are left leaning or right leaning. Cruz vs Trump would be funnier as they are the exact opposites.

Anyway, the political landscape in Italy couldn't be more interesting at the moment, you have the center left government who tries to balance liberism and welfare state, the far right wing Lega Nord whose main talking point is immigration and the far left Five Star Movement who's made up of antiestablishment, conspiracy theorists, welfarists, ecc. all in the same movement

Ecuador. I don't know what the exact current situation is, but during the 90's there were 17 political parties, including 3 Maoist parties, 2 Communist parties and a Socialist party. During the last elections, a rightist party chose an Indigenous former mayor (12 years as mayor) of a northern canton who had gotten an advanced economics degree from a Cuban university as a VP running mate. In registering as a candidate, he missed some paperwork requirements, so the election commission ruled him not qualified to be on the ballot.

The incumbent President won for a 3rd term, after having the Constitution changed so that he was allowed a 3rd term. Anything can happen in Ecuadoran politics. It's a wild show! It's anybody's guess who'll be President next, or if the incumbent, Rafael Correa, will somehow manage to angle for a 4th term.

I like the debating style in the House of Commons in UK. It's irreverent, lively, clever and funny. Probably the funniest parliament in Europe :-)

Awww lol...well he won the New Hampshire Primary, as did the Chumpster....this is all getting very interesting. Will the U.S. go to the two far extremes in both camps, beating out the Republican and Democratic machines?

The US's current political panorama is definitely interesting at this moment!

Being Canadian, I can't even fathom the length of time it takes to elect someone. It just becomes a freakin gong how after 3 months. Which is longer than the longest campaign in Canadian history.
Ohh dear. Magana..Candian Political Season lasts a a few months..AMERICAN Political season start as soon as election results occur..and voila...Fund raising and media Bullhorn rhetoric starts immediately ...Makes me laugh in once sense..BUT it's February..and actual elections for leadership is November...Yikes!!

Can you fellow Canadians IF we got 24/7 media pundits constant BS OPINIONS from one election to another??? Yikes!!

Sorry to say..Entertainment is well beyond "Entertainement"..It's to the point of ridiculous....American Politics punditry ..NEVER EVER Ends!! So doesn't matter EVIL incarnate leader is the DEVIL!!

Oh wait..doesn't matter which party is in leadership....BUT Heck..Doomer-in-chief" seems to always come from RIGHT WING ( whether in Whitehouse/ has control of Congress /makes no difference) Control of both houses still somehow allows a political party to suggest the POTUS is at FAULT!! ...

It's way beyond ridiculous IF American's and GOP really expects other World Countries to accept the BS that Republican/GOP has been spewing this past 5 years...Biggest fear..There are NO actual folks who are willing or capable to COMP-RO-MISE in GOP caucus?? IF not..NOTHING will ever get done..unless leadership actually leads...LOL

Leadership lacking always gets blamed on POTUS..Yet leadership in both houses has NOT lead anything except to BLOCK!! How is that helpful to the regular American?? So Trump will somehow conquer?? LOL
