    Firstly, I assume it is meant to say "anti-graft party".

    What part of "to be brief" do you not understand? "To be" is an infinitive form of a verb, which follows "threatens". What definitions have you found for "brief" in a dictionary?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    To be short. The honeymoon (the time when the party is liked by people) will not last very long. "anty" should be "anti" - against or not for graft in this case.
