chattels: Parliamentary opposition is a form of political opposition to a designated government, particularly in a Westminster-based parliamentary system. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opp...
chattels: Official Opposition, is usually the largest parliamentary opposition party in the House of Commons or a provincial legislative assembly that is not in government, either on its own or as part of a governing coalition. This is usually the second-largest party in a legislative house, although, in certain unusual circumstances, it may be a third or fourth party or even the largest party.
The Official Opposition is viewed as the caucus tasked with keeping the government in check. It is also generally viewed as the alternative government or "government in waiting". The Official Opposition maintains a shadow cabinet, with the Leader of the Official Opposition at its head, of Members of Parliament (MPs) and Senators who often have the same portfolios as actual ministers.
The spokesperson for each portfolio is known as an opposition critic. Thus, in the event the government loses the confidence of the House or the Official Opposition party wins a general election, the party is ready to become the government. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Off...
