Breconian support is mostly behind KOPA, although the Greens and SPD are also somewhat popular.
KOPA is the party for me. They seem the most likely to value public ownership, take care of the elderly, and work for a fairer society.
-Alain Mateau, civil servant at Brecon Statistics Bureau in Amiens
I have voted for the Greens here my whole life, so I suppose I would probably support DG.
-Patric Gery, grain and dairy farmer in the northwest
Julian Schumann might make a fair Chancellor. The SPD would be a good choice for the Gro?deutsches Reich; they would move the country in the right direction without having to deal with the same criticism as KOPA.

Petrenko's Plans for the EU
After an exclusive interview with the newly elected commission member Comrade Peter Petrenko we decided to reveal to you his plans for his following term in office. First on his agenda is sorting out the way in which nation's contribute towards the EDF and what voting rights each nation will have. He has told us that he plans to make the system work so that every member of the EU will give around 1-2% of their GDP (this figure is up for debate) but the disparities between the amount of money given will not correlate to disparities in voting rights.
The new economics commissioner has also told us of his plans to create a European Monetary Fund to help developing states decrease poverty levels by providing them with loans. He hopes the implementation of this institution will help raise standards of living across the EU.
In other news, unemployment is decreasing as more and more of our comrades enlist into the armed services. Our glorious leader Comrade Commissar Lathon plans to give the military a complete overhaul replacing old equipment with new models and expanding the size of our military. We can rest assure that we are safe from any capitalist imperialists seeking to invade thanks to Comrade Lathon's new measures.

New Political Parties Formed in Aleutia
JUNEAU - Following the announcement of the provisional government to hold a national referendum in three months, many new political parties are now spawning up across the country, ready to shape the new country. Among them, the newly formed party, Rally of the Aleutian People (RAP), and the National Solidarity Front (NSF), the only remaining major party from the previous era, are expected to take the lead in the race to power.
The leader of the RAP is no other than Dr. Alexandra George, the younger sister of General Arthur George. Other party seniors include Adm. David McKinley and General Victor Loubert, both are highly respected citizens of Aleutia. It is unknown how many members the new party has managed to gather, although it appears the party is widely popular among supporters of the Armed Forces and General Arthur George.
In their manifesto which was revealed to the public yesterday, the RAP sets stability and prosperity as their main goals and policies. The party promises to bring about a new era in which citizens of Aleutia will enjoy a high degree of both economic and political freedom and they will be free from the fear of another communist uprising.
The RAP favors the centralization of major industries such as energy, communication, and the military while strongly supports private ownership in other sectors such as consumer products and agricultural industry. The party also identifies minimum wage as a road-block to the recovery of Aleutia hence indicates that they will attempt to either reduce the minimum wage or abolish the concept all together. The party also stresses the importance of traditional values in the social life of the country. The party's leaderships has previously denounced many "progressive" policies taken by the previous government of Aleutia such as allowing homosexuals go get married.
In the yesterday address to the public, Dr. Alexandra George announced the party's intention to support General George as Lord Protector of the country. According to Dr. Alexandra George, the role of the General is pivotal to the new Aleutia. "For many years the country has lacked the leadership of a real strong figure. For this same reason that the previous government has failed in holding the country together and allow communist terrorists to rise up and tear our country apart... I strongly believe that General Arthur George, with all the sacrifices he has made for our country and the respects we Aleutians have for him, has been rightfully given the title of Lord Protector and should remain the protector of the people..." said Dr. George in the speech. RAP also supports Republic as the form of government for Aleutia.
The RAP's opposition, the National Solidarity Front, so far has not made any official announcement regarding the up coming events. The party's leadership has refused to be interviewed by ABC.
Due to their criminal roles in bringing down the country into the bloody war, the Christian Democratic Party, the Socialist Party of Aleutia, and the Communist Party remain banned from participating in any elections in foreseeable future.
The Calabrian Parliament has passed legislation further regulating the economy and increasing government control in many sectors in an effort to help the people and farmers of Calabria-Piemonte.
Firstly, all domestic businesses deemed essential to the people and all high reaches of industry have fallen under complete government control. This includes rail service, canal and ship services, air transportation, mining, power and electric, water, factory production, telecommunications, the automotive-aircraft-and ship building industries, and print communications.
Second, all international business that isn't sponsored by a state government will be subject to joint collaboration with government compliance agencies to make sure Calabrian properties of industry are being upheld.
Third, all business that wishes to be started in Calabria-Piemonte must register as either a government supported business, essential business to the populace, or a collective business. Singular private enterprise will be discouraged and be made collective by the government.
Mauresmo Wins Premier Commission; Sets Agenda
Europolis, EUROPOLIS -- Amelie Mauresmo of French Albion received the highest honor in European politics last week; the Germain-en-Laye native won the Premier Commissioner spot on the European Commission and will now be working hard to promote ideas that would best suit Europe. Her victory outside of French Albion had been considered an upset by many, but not by the French or Mauresmo herself.
"I am honored to be serving the people of Europe, and it is my duty as a public servant to continue to listen to the ideas of my other commissioners and of the European public and go from there in modifying my agenda that I have planned. Reform within reason is what we need in Europe. A lot of things go well, and there are a lot of things that need to be improved and my colleagues and I will work hard to make sure we have a bright, positive, strong Europe," said Premier Commissioner Mauresmo from her new office in Europolis after being sworn in.
During the debate, Mauresmo promoted the ideas of peace, cooperation, and reform. IN particular, she wants to start a multinational peace-keeping force in order to respond to crises in a peace-keeping/rebuilding manner, something that Europe currently does not have. She also said that she would capture the rogue Spanish de facto leader General Villar by way of asking for an arrest warrant and trial by the European Courts of Justice. Finally, a European center for health and safety for quicker responses and distribution of vaccines and aid to nations in regards to outbreaks of diseases and other pressing health issues.
Her official stance on a new European parliament hasn't been documented yet, and in an exclusive moment, Le Monde talked to Mlle. Mauresmo about the subject.
"Honestly, I feel that the current system has been effective in legislation. What I would like to see happen is that there be a system of endorsement for legislation or legislative committee which would include non-Commission and Non-Court of Justice nations in looking at the proposed legislation and raising questions for debate and suggesting where changes could be made. Too much legislation tends to be proposed and due to one flaw, it gets lampooned. I'd rather have a process where there is what I would call a 'pre-hearing' and the Legislative Committee would suggest changes and work with the Council Speaker in guiding debate so that we have efficient and quick debates. In the representation debates, a percentage representation by population or land mass would be terrible for the smaller nations like Inquista or Calabria-Piemonte; but I also agree with the Soviet Union and Nazione Italiana that one vote per nation isn't necessarily fair when you have populations of 200 million plus. In an ideal legislative body, a bicameral legislature similar to the United States congress would work, but are European's willing to end up paying for more government at the same time? It is something that will be put up to debate on the Council floor and then we will act accordingly."
French Albion awaits the exciting reform that Ms. Mauresmo proposes.
The parliament has enacted "Hold and Secure Act". The country is now in the state of hold and secure. The National Academy has been suspended. No one is allowed in or our of the country. All affairs will continue as normal.

Borders closed by government decree
Article by Felipe Peces
Madrid - The spokesman of the Military Junta, Enrique Cobo, has announced that the government has approved a decree that enforces the closing of all Spanish international borders. Mr Cobo has said all Spanish citizens abroad will have 7 days to return to the country before borders are closed. Due to this announcement, several foreign companies working in the country have announced they're leaving the Spanish market. The closing of the borders comes two weeks after the declaration of war on Germany, Russia and Italy. It's also been announced that the internet will be shut down, something which has led to massive public outcry against the government. In a similar isolationist move the Spanish representor at the European Council has been recalled back to Madrid.
Seeing that I only know a slice of the story, I shouldn't vote. But if the USSR has a strong influence on it, then here Inquista disagrees. Inquista is proberly the most or one of the most religious nations in the EU. Inquista wants to spread religion, which cannot work if communism does. Inquista is totally against the soviet control in Neo-Venetia.
