Biography[edit | edit source]
Early life[edit | edit source]
Peter Andrew Wostor was born in Swantown, a small town located on Brunant Island. His father was Brunanter, however his mother was British. Wostor's parents lived in Marseille before moving to Swantown several years before his birth. He grew up in Swantown, and was interested in politics from an early age. He supported the Social Democratic Party, who were often seen as the dominant party alongside the Christian Democratic Union, despite his Catholic beliefs. He lived in Swantown until the age of 18, when he moved to Brunant's capital, Koningstad in order to study at the Royal University of Koningstad. He was still interested in politics, and studied Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE). Only several after he started studying at university, he joined the newly founded political party, the Green Party. He became one of the most promising politicians for the party.
2009-2013[edit | edit source]
Before the 2009 General elections, Peter Wostor was elected through the Green Party Elections as the Leader and Prime Minister candidate of the Green Party, which had become one of Brunant's most prominent political parties. He missed out on Prime Minister to Robert Helms of the Centre Democrats, however Wostor became very popular throughout Brunant for his work following the elections. He protected Brunant's environment, and stuck to his promise of lowering taxes. Near the end of the 2009-2013 political term, Robert Helms resigned from his role as Prime Minister. Peter Wostor was appointed as a caretaker Prime Minister through a by-election days after Helms' resignation. His actions as Prime Minister also contributed to his popularity during the term.
2014-2016[edit | edit source]
Peter Wostor was elected as the Leader and Prime Minister candidate once again through the Green Party Elections, in a close battle with Minister of Finance, Nick Rutten. The Green Party won 27 seats in the 2014 general elections, making them the largest political party in Brunant. This was not enough for an overall majority, and therefore the Green Party formed a coalition with the Social Democratic Party whereby Peter Wostor would become Brunant's Prime Minister for a second consecutive term. Soon after in May, he was elected as a Member of the European Parliament representing the European Green Party. He also became the Minister of External Affairs following the 2014 General elections, making him one of five Green Party department leaders.
2017[edit | edit source]
Peter Wostor was heavily implicated in the 2017 Green Party corruption scandal which revealed that he had illegally financially supported his family and friends as political candidates with government funds. Due to this, the Social Democratic Party withdrew their support for his government, and he resigned the premiership and leadership of the Green Party on March 14, 2017.
A number of politicians and parties have backed an investigation, and it is likely in the coming months that he will be charged once a government can be formed. On 1 April 2018, the Van Buskirk government began a formal investigation on Wostor's activities.
Personal life[edit | edit source]
Wostor spends most of his time working as a politician, either in Brussels or Brunant, however he has a personal life.
