The article presently reads: the leader of the largest minority party in Parliament is termed "The Leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition". I am changing this text, as the present leader of the largest minority party in Canada's present Parliament happens to be termed "The Prime Minister of Canada". 12:44, 17 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Does the EU follow this principle?[edit]

We all know who leads the EU. But where is its 'loyal opposition'? Crawiki (talk) 16:26, 29 March 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Loyal opposition in a non-UK/Commonwealth context[edit]

In a non-UK/Commonwealth context, "Loyal opposition" typically stands for an ostensive opposition party in an authoritarian regime which is actually a satellite of the ruling party, such as the MDB under the Brazilian military regime or the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia.

And I see that you went ahead and added a section to that effect. Unfortunately, you didn't add a single source - not even an example of its use in that sense. I can't think of a sensible way of searching for it that will include only the relevant uses: perhaps you have some real examples (or, even better, can point to a discussion of the phrase in that sense, since Wikipedia has a strong preference for secondary sources)? If so, please add some. ColinFine (talk) 21:42, 31 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
