Definition

List all election promises made by the 20-odd parties in a coalition, sum them up, wait for most of them to cancel each other out and the few things left constitute the CMP.

Considering the fact that a coalition perfectly reflects the dictum WALTO and includes everyone from free-market religious fundamentalists to Marxist atheists, it is actually astonishing that the CMP is not an empty set.

The CMP, mostly though, is a collection of ambiguous & uncontroversial musings rather than a real set of actionable policy statements (See example below)

Usage

Headline: The UNP under Dr. Manmohan Singh included a promise to "fully empower" women under its CMP.
