    ELDL Seal Victory in Comission Election

    user posted image

    The European Liberal Democrats League are celebrating victory today with not only have the Premier Comissioner as an ELDL members but also our very own Maleeka Liszckoszi taking the Comissioner for Internal Affairs Position.

    Europolis welcomed Amelie Mauresmo of French Albyon to the highest office in the comission this morning where she announced her Comission team with Liszckoszi taking the Comissioner of Internal Affairs position, a key place for Liszkoszi to implement motions of great change for the council.

    We asked the Rt Hon Maleeka Liszkockszi how she felt about this great victory:

    'It is a great honour to be serving with my ELDL colleague Amelia Mauresmo i the new Mauresmo Comission of the European Union. When working for Harajok Zelezny, former head of the ELDL, on building up our liberal europarty we could't have imagined this massive success. We nwo have to chance to bri great change to the Union. I met with our new Premier Comissioner yesterday and we are very positive this comission will work well to bring the most change Europe has seen.

    What do you think of comments form Angleterian Paper 'The National OPbserver' in regards to as a person : 'who saw her Europarty largely desert her for outsider Ms. Mauresmo'?

    'What people don't realise is that French Albyon have been prominent in past comission elections with Frnacois Fillon filling the my new office in the ocmissioenr before Vooleck's. Amelie has a certain vivacious quality that comes across well, she is a personality recognised for her great achievments as a sports woman but her political skill and will ot represent the poeple is what has given her success.'

    'I completely welcomed the idea of two ELDL candidates which increased the chance of at least one comission spot, I did not proclaim myself as an official ELDL endorsed candidate as I wanted members to make their own mind up, Im not going to enforce doctrine, I am merely chair not dictator of the party my role is merely administrative. I feel people may have not taken to my radical policies which I was more than vocal about and had my ideas picked apart by other candidates who offered simply nothing new, they didnt even publish a manifesto! My ideas of political form were ripped apart then some candidates regurgitated what I had suggested in a different way changing the idea of a fixed number of ministers, a point every other ministerial candidate bar Mauresmo attacked me on! I think my problem was that I would not role over in the debates answering everything and holding my hands up to ideas which wont work but these were merely proposals, as I pointed out in the debates it would be arrogant of me to presume I alone can make law!!

    In my new office I will make change and with Ms Maruesmo we will certainly give the system a shake up. I hope to meet with the comission to get parliamentary reform on the agenda as we need it.

    The other elected officials were:
    Defence & Peacekeeping- Christiane Vooleeck (Grossdeutsches Reich)
    Foreign Affairs- Felice di Francesco (Nazione Italiana)
    Economics- Peter Petrenko (Unfreedomia)

    Corelia Today believes the main shock of the eleciton to be that Felice di Fancesco failed to elevate the EPP to the great heights it perceives itself to acheive and even the europarty backing couldnt bring him to victory. Mr di Francesco was the favourtie to take the Premier Comissioner position but perhaps his right-wing responses didn't rub well with some nations.

    Corelian Parliament announced the enforcement of the education rights act which has allowed everyone a right to an educaiton up and through university if they so wish for free. There is an expected amendment to further include Masters students and PhD students who will be given a student loan to complete studies.

    Also in parliament third party coalition leader Rhoda Lindhert presented the quarterley bill, the coalition present one bill to be voted on by parliament per quarter. This bill motion was for devolution of more powers to the coalition but speaker of the house Leijna Patran refused the vote decribing the vote as 'an idiotic move by a party desperately seeking power, this is a blatant abuse of trust and I would be careful as to not have your current powers take from you'

    Vice-President Jelesniak on behalf of the Viscount who was giving a lecture at the University of Seacove and Prime Minister Astollo who was in Falleija preparing for the sumit described the actions as 'a desperate rummiging for media attention, it is clear Ms Lindert is still licking her election wounds. It is clear there is a systematic abuse being seen here. We will be invesitgating the coalition's actions and place it under monitoring as I am sure the other parties in the sub-parliament did not go alon with this and wished to present something more sensible. I will inform the Viscount and request that he dissolves the coalition until we sort out this abusive system. You forget one thing, you were not chosen by the people you were not elected we only allowed this quarterley bill to allow those who voted for you a chance to contribute positively. Ms Lindhert you have let your voters down'

    Ms Lindhert was allowed a rebuttle by the speaker: 'My voters would see your underlying hipocrisy this house is contemptable! I should be given a seat in parliament to represent the lost views you have nglected, so much for equal say and the dissolution will see the end of your democacy Jelesniak. This parliament is nothing but contemptable with a speaker who doesnt know her mouth from her backside!'

    Speaker Patran immediately declared an 'intolereance for this insolence, by insulting my authority you have just managed to dissolve your own. I hereby declare this matter of the electoral college, Ms Lindhert is stripped of her position as coalition leader as is the Corelian Conservative Alliance and their partners in leadership the westfallon homeland party. In accodance with Eelectoral College regulation 7.63 I hereby declare their respective seats in sub-parliament to be taken by lyce?an parliament until further notice. Now Ms Lindhert you are to leave in grave disgrace and fi you do not remove yourself further incursions will be made'

    Rhoda made a swift exit and has not been seen since the decision was made.

    Government Unveils New Minister for Science & Technology

    user posted image

    Today in Parliament backbench MP Lord Khayn Krimtak of the Pietros North constituency was selected by the Viscount to be in his cabinet as the new Minister for Science and Technology. He was elected from a secret shortlist by the Os Corelius select comittee which includes the party leader, chairman, vice-chairs and cheif of staff. The Viscount announced a unanimous decision was made and they called Lord Krimtak forward before council as Minister of Science & Technology.

    The Viscount revealed that his nomination was sponsored by Lady Milios who is first vice-chair of the os corelius party. Traditionally when a new postion is made the two vice-chairs and cheif of staff each sponsor a potential candidate form the list of backbanch MPs taking into consideration the ministers experience in the field.

    Lord Geltar Wolstenholm of Westfallon East and Lord Drake Mepelsh of Taloshia Forest South were equally hot favourites for the job being both in stable Os Corelius majority states and both having Masters of Science and working in Sience and technology respectively with Lord Melpesh working previously as the deputy cheif of Konicon the computer company and Lord Wolstenholm as head of the faculty of biological sciences at the University of the Outer Territories now known as Westfallon Gates University.

    The party Chairman Kairos Jelesniak revealed that Lord Melpesh was on the last but the other selected minister was Lady Libitia Kolvek of Starliousa who holds a Professorship in Chemical Sciences and Pharmacology gained at the Unversity of Stratton Beck the capital of Starliousa.

    Lord Krimtak was invited to make a brief speech to which he stated distinct shock and surprise at his appointment

    'It is a great shock and honour to be even considered for this great position, I thank Lady Milios for her sponsorship of my candidacy tot he select comittee I am indebted to your belief in my skills. This position has been created in the wake of the frienship treaty and now with the establishment of a Ministry of science and technology we can work on advancing not only space travel on the Artemis 4 project but also infrastructure of this country improving communication and researching medicine. My credentials in this field lie in my work in developing and testing new medicenes in Pietros advancing vaccines to tackle all diseases from AIDS to Heptitis and the avian flu vaccine. I worked for the European Health comission on the advisory pannel. I also helped develop the comvac a painless method of vaccination. I guess I'll hope to take you to the moon and back!'

    Lord Krimtak moved into his new ministry set up at the Pietrian Parliament centre in the city of Mossgardt and the Astrophysics department at the University of Mossgardt Tech is expected to supply potential candidates for the first Os Corelian in space.

    Krimtak is an eccentric character, nothing short of a mad scientist but he is expected to help advance the naiton technologically by moving funding ito key research projects.

    New Parliament Act Decrees Oppositon Cabinet

    user posted image

    Today in Parliament the opposition leader High Lord Herioc Hadronkheim of the State Index Party requested permission to form a shadow cabinet to provide an effective opposition. This is the first time an opposition leader has had to request permissionas the State Index who are the opposition party only have two MPs so other cabinet members would not be elected officials.

    High Lord Hadronkheim presented a speech to support his case:

    'The State Index Party are the recognised opposition party here to question the decisions of the govenment on a variety of issues to debate in an open forum. The only way we can effectively oppose the govenment is through a shadow cabinet formed with unelected officials. We are the elected opposition and all members of the cabinet would be towing the party line so to speak. By granting us the permission to do so you will be reinforcing the democratic values this new parliamentary republic was built upon. Even though the majority of cabinet would be unelected we would not have a major effect on the general decision makin on the country other than to advise our opinion and have our two MP votes'

    The Prime Minsiter stated the case ought to be in the domain of the council fo regional decreement and asked Lord Malstern to present his views in line with the constitution. Lord Malstern stated that:

    'It is true for a successful opposition there needs to be an adequate team in response. A decision of approval would not affect the parliamentary voting system and would only operate in an advisory capacity.'

    The question of the involvement of High Lady Gwilis Kwensee of the Mutantian Socialist Party within this cabinet was raised by Lady Malsteern to which Hadronkheim statedthat she was not a member of the oppoition and it was not of the interes tof the party to include her in such a cabinet. Kwensee is rumoured to have attempted on several occasions to form a coalition opposition an idea the State Index Party has always stated it was against.

    22 MPs were present in chamber to vote with 18 Ayes 3 Nos and 1 Abstention thus passing the decreement. The Prime Minister formally invested powers of shadow cabinet to High Lord Hadronkheim stating that he cannot create a position in opposition to head of state with party leader equating to Premiership alone.

    The State Index Party have called conference this weekend and are likely to reveal their Shadow Cabinet tomorrow. The non-elected members can attend Parliament in the corin benches but will be oficially know as Shadow Cabinet Advisors or SCAs and cannot vote even for MPs who are not present.

    The State Index party who gained their first MPs and the opposition of the house role are still relatively unknown outside their elected MPs constituencies. They are a left wing party build on co-operative policies and they work with 2 of the main unions in our nation 'Congress of Unity' and 'The Together Union'. Herioc Hadronkheim the party leader is a former boss of the Together Union and has a reputation for anti-elitism activism within parliament and has managed to decree in his constituency through regional parliament the dissolution of private education.

    Electoral College Opens Its Door For the First Time In History!

    user posted image
    The Lyc?ean House

    In a bid to make the parlimentary system transparent and understandable to the public the Electoral college has opened its doors to allow media and the public to visit its exclusive four houses for one weekend only.

    The electoral college is the institution that regulates all elections in Os Corelia and runs the country during election period. It also provides speakers for national parliament, the reigonal parliaments, third-party coalition chamber and the international affairs senate. The institution constantly researches elections and finds ways to improve the system to make things more simpler.

    The college works in a four tier system with each level known as a house. To become a member of the electoral college you have to have had no political influence and most importantly never voted in an election. The intake starts from the age of 18 with an application intent form submitted while someone is 17 to make sure they do not vote in an election.

    When you begin your journey into the electoral college you are a member of 'The House of the People' where you begin a Batchelor Degree programme (BA Electoral politics), the students are given the responsibility to work as ward returning officers. Students study in this house for four years to ensure a general election happens within a year of study so the civil duty is fufilled.

    Out of the 1,152 graduates only 72 are accepted into the next house, 'The House of the Republic' where you begin a masters programme(MA Electoral Comissioning), the Graduates as they are now known are given the responsibility to work as council election co-ordinators each over seeing a particular council and making sure their electoral processes are up to scratch. A Graduate is expected to study in this house for two years which matches the frequency of council elections.

    We now progress to see all the 72 Graduates be accepted into the next house (pass permitting although no single member of the house of the republic has ever failed to progress). This penultimate house is known as 'Democracy House' - a strange piece legislation made by the electoral reform comittee calls for the destruction of. this house should democracy fall, a chilling notion indeed. In this house the now Masters study a PhD in Electoral Democracy. These Masters are put in pairs and act as returning officers for constituencies with constituency MPs subject to a review by the Masters every year, a process which includes a rigorous interview that not even the viscount can escape to ensure democracy is protected by the elected representative. The Masters are also responsible for appointing the third-party coalition member for their constituency which is the highest placed candidate from a non-elected party. A Master studies within this house for four years to gain a doctorate.

    52 Members in total are in the final house 'The Lyc?ean House' which has strict rules on intake. Only if a member of the house retires, resigns, passes or is fried can a new member be admitted. For this reason most people from the previous house become University Lecturers as they gain a doctorate. Also in the interest of keeping the top house free from political bias the new intake are only selected from the final year Democracy House students. The duties of the house differ and each year 48 roles are reviewed with the only mainstay being the chapter heads who run each of the houses who are elected within The Lyc?ean House and serve 4 year terms. The 48 other doctors are split as follows: 36 of the doctors hold Lyc?ean Parliament minister posts (the parliament who run the country during election time), 9 are the regional parliament speakers and the last 3 are the thrid-part coalition speaker, the internaitonal affairs senate speaker and finally member 52 of the house the speaker of national parliament. The speaker of national parlaiment is known as Member 52 the traditional house name and the speaker holds room 52 in the house, lives in flat 52 and has all 52 keys to each members offices and research cabinets.

    If that has all confused you come alon to the electoral collegethis weekend and learn from the people studying and the Lyc?ean Doctors as the mysteries unfold!!!

    Kwensee Given Marching Orders from Mutantian Socailists

    user posted image

    High Lady Gwilis Kwensee, the only Mutantian Socialist MP and party leader, was today subjected to a vote of no confidence at the annual party conference in Aerodimus. The party leader was ousted with an 80% vote against Kwensee continuing as leader. This will mean a by-election for Kwensee's seat will be occurin in a weeks time.

    The party were unhappy with Kwensee not forcing a position in the shadow cabinet being refused an opposition coalition by The State Index Party. The leaders unpopularity is believed to have lost the party their seats at the previous election. During the election campaign Kwensee is accused to have spent resources on smear campaigns instead of making policies known.

    Kwensee submitted her resignation to the constituency master this morning and already candidates to replace her have been announced by The State Index Party, Os Corelius Party and Corelian Conservative alliance.

    The Mutantian Socialists have yet to decide a candidate but are likely to vote on it tomorrow.

    The Candidates announced are:

    Councillor Milbecker Perimnt SCA - State Index Party
    user posted image

    Dr Harajok Zelezny - Os Corelius Party

    Miss Rhoda Lindhart - Corelian Conservative Alliance
    user posted image

    The three candidates are all very politically experienced but the one big surprise is the return to domestic politics by former ELDL President and EU Economics Comissioner Harajok Zelezny.

    Early indications on announcement place Milbecker Perimnt at the top of the polls at a clear 57% with Zelezny in second place with 30%. The constitutnecy of Pietros West has never tended to favour The Os Corelius Party being known as the socialist haven seat but by fielding a respected politician the party may make some ground. Zelezny aware of this says he will do his best to inform the people of Pietros West of what Os Correlius stand for and how they can benefit the area.

    First Opposition Address Given in Parliament

    Today in Parliament the Opposition Cabinet were in attendence for the first time and to mark the occasion deputy opposition leader Lady Vre Telshi was asked by her party to make the dutifull shadow cabinet speech commenting on the governments actions. She choose her speech to combine positives alon side negatives and sought for a more social assertiveness in parliament.

    'It is clear today that we have two kinds of politics in this chamber. The politics of the centre-left and the politics of the left. We have a party in power with only mild left views which brings me to question the extent the government is willin to go to for the working man. I do have to admit that this government have responded very clearly to what the people have wanted and have acted swiftly and in gaining recent treaties have secured our place in Europe. Even though this is the case I worry about our European commitments when at home there are a few issues I feel this government have ignored. We need to abolish class in society and make sure the rights of the workin man come over those with extravagant lifestyles. We would like the first major step to be an abolition of private education and a rise in taxes for those who inherit vast amounts of money and never earn its value. We need social equality to make society work'

    All MPs applauded and even though the Education Minister Lord Zeltra Mankioro was offered a rebuttle by the speaker he politely declined as this address even though uni-policy-centric was a general accord to a new shadow cabinet. Instead Lord Mankioro simply offered to debate this request further in chambers.

    Other News

    Councillor Hoopi Hedgkansteen has been selected as the candidate for The Mutantian Socialist Party for Pietros West while Senator Jeneriok Kalsterio of Pietros is taking party leadership. It is agreed if Hegdkansteen can hold the seat for the socialist party that he will become party leader.

    Councillor Milbecker Perimnt is still leading the polls even with this announcement which suprisingly only places the Socialists in third place behind Harajok Zelezny of Os Corelius.

    Viscount Makes First State Address of New Parliament

    user posted image

    Today the Viscount was out and about in his home constituency of Falador South in the city of Haladon Province with his wife High Honoured Viscountessa Maleeka Xavier for the customery State Address of New Parliament. The Viscount chose the setting of The Haladon Province Viscounts Palace to set out what he hopes his parliament to acheive. The whole of parliament was formally requested to attend along side the shadow cabinet and the electoral college Lyce?an House who all turned out except for ill Shadow Leader High Lord Handronkheim.

    The address was given at noon in the reception hall of the palace. We could not print all the hour long address but have been given the list of parliamentary comittments by the Os Corelian Parliamentary Keeper Vice President Kairos Jelesniak:

    1. Revolutionise education by extending the liberation fo education to Undergraduate level and access practical qualifications as deemed appropriate.
    2. A reduction of taxes to match the wealth rates with an increase on the top 10% of citizens in wealth ranking
    3. A review of drug trials to see if the time can be reduced while not jepordising health
    4. A promotion of arts and cultural events in the nation by investing in regional state cultural agencies
    5. An investment for a space programme and scientific advancement with tax payer consideration
    6. A commitment to monitor banking and transport by the part-nationalisation of services
    7. A review on the political efectiveness of the third-party coalition and voting reform discussion as requested by The Shadow Cabinet
    8. A crime education parameter by which prison is always given as a last resort in smaller crimes and in civil cases aso educating school children about all crimes without jepordising age responsivity
    9. An increase in involvement within the EU including meeting more nations for treatise to further advance our place within the region
    10. To appoint a suitabel day for Democracy Day a new national holiday marking the coming of democratic parliament to Os Corelia

    The parliamentary 10point plan is expected to be reached by mid-term with some commitments marginally easier than others. The biggest surprise has come in the obligitary Shadow Cabinet chosen request which instead of being on education, an issue that the viscount requested not to be on the commitments due to debate bein needed on the discussion, was a call for the dissolution of the un-elected officials meetings originally set up to appease political persuations effect on parliament something that has recently been subjected to abuse by requesting divolvment of powers.

    The Viscount has announced that Democracy Day date will be announced next week.

    user posted image

    Today at Yellownak Hospital Lady Milbecker Perimnt announced that High Lord Herioc Handronkheim was recovering well in a more stable condition to the relief of the nation. Although this good new was announced we were then told that High Lord Hadronkehim has resigned and she was the proxy in a ceremony in the Yellownak centenary square outside the hospital held by the speaker of state who accepted the resignation by proxy due the exceptional circumstances and stated High Lord Hadronkheim is now known as The Rt Hon Herioc Hadronkheim.

    Lady Telshi was inaugurated as opposition leader making Lady Perimnt her deputy. Vri Telshi was appoint a High Lady of the Parliamentary New Republic i' Service. In her first act she requested from the speaker a special consideration tribunal to seek a direct replacement in parliament. The Os Corelius Chair Kairos Jelesniak was in attendence and announced that his party would not field and opposing candidate for the seat int he event of election and supported the tribunal. The Lyce?an House have arranged a special session with an announcement expected tomorrow. The outspoken conserative alliance spokeswoman Rhoda Lindhart has protested "for the name of democracy" a jibe that has once again caused angry condemnation. The Yellow Democrat party ahave abstained from comment buying time to observe who things politically play out.

    We spoke to Corelian Bookmakers CosBet who have announced their top 4 likeley replacement candidates:

    Councillor Roygen Treaymer SCA - Shadow Education Minister - 3/1

    Councillor Hanhanna Portiscu SCA - Shadow Chancellor - 4/1

    Councillor Hanbek Wilt SCA - Shadow Foreign Affairs Minister - 10/1

    Councillor Leit Kreiff SCA - Shadow Arts & Culture Minister - 15/1

    This evening Councillor Jilley Mazstra SCA, shadow health minister and party secretary, has revealed that the party have lined up a candidate who will be announced in the event of either succession or ballot listing. Councillor Roygen Treaymer SCA, shadow education minister, is odds on favourite as he is the most senior male politician in the State Index cabinet as he is the Yellownak council leader and came a very close second to Herioc Hadronkheim in the last leadership contest. Councillor Hanhanna Portiscu SCA is on very close odds being a close adviser to High Lady Telshi.

    An unnamed source who was at the emergency meeting has suggested that the party have picked a candidate of great political standing but may not be expected by anyone.

    'The announcement of Lord Vasilius may come as a surprise to people expecting a shadow cabinet member to take the position. It was clear that we would need to appoint a new SCA if we picked from within the cabinet and indeed a few names were in the ring until Councillor Mazstra suggested Kadreya. We invited him tot he meeti and he admitted he had been seekin a return to politics. We know he has previously worked for the social interests of the nation in coalition government and worked hard as our European Council representative giving us our place in Europe as it stands.

I am fully supportive of the State Index Party policies and am keen to assist the party stanc eon education forward which we indeed have made our primary target as oppostion. I will continue the work of Herioc Handronkheim a great friend who I'm sure will offer me advice on what work he would have liked to done if he coudl have continued.'

    The State Index Party infact reveal there was a torn vote between Hanhannah Portiscu and Roygen Treaymer for the position which couldnt be resolved until Jilley Mazstra's suggestion.

    user posted image

    Lord Vasillius escorts his dear friend The Rt Hn Gwilis Kwensee ot the Awards Shortlist Announcementat Haladon Arts Palace

    Lord Tomak Bazarak and Lord Kadreya Vasillius today revealed the nominations for the presitigous new Faladorian Cultural Medal which not only carries a 200,000 qotsma prize but a hereditary title of Baron/Baroness to be shared with their spouse.

    Lord Bazarak invited Lord Vasilius to join the panel as previous to his election Vasilius had becoem a national treasure directign major independent films encouraging the independent film industry to grow and be sufficient. Vasilius was asked to be the vice-chair of this committee.

    A prize comittee consisting of Lady Milios (culture minister), Guild of the Republic Artist Vongol Avterdammert, Songwriter and Producer Dock Keys, Theatre Kozal director Kairos Kozal and cultural sociologist Dr Abisca Lynemia as well as the two aforementioned Lords decided the nominations after working through a mountain of cultural occurences.

    Lord Vailius was asked by Bazarak to announce the nominees as Bazarak willproclaim the winning culutral architect.

    _Nominees for The Faladorian Culture Medal _

    Balia Dardrich - For his film - Same Lines

    Jonek Klipaste - For his sculpture - The Fisherman's Keeper - In situe at Port Ellieja

    Shemihintri Xavier - For her play - 'Stories of Old & Weir' - Haladon Arts Palace

    Misean Chiempyk - For her album - 'Talk to Strangers' - Walltown Records

    Ladyero Kosozzi - For Her book - 'The Life We Drew Into a Lake' - Elodriff Press

    Lord Vaillius describe the nominees as: 'A great list of cultural ambassadors of the state of Falador with each not only producing great artistic work but sourcing their distribution and materials with Falador. Every nominee shows alternative representation of Falador through different mediums. As an outsider I have been heavily educated about the state's history through these particular works and at the end of the day that is what this prize seeks to assert and value. Each cultural architect should be proud and as a sign of recognitiont he state parliament wish to offer the shortlisted artists the title of Cultural Architect for they shape the cultural future of this great state.'

    We have on the list Shemihintri Xavierthe playwright who is actually a cousin of the Viscount but nonetheless is regarded as a great writer with works premiering all over the nation with her Corelian Myriad 'Algokahn' opening in Kaldoon just last motnh.

    Balia Dardrich's 'Same Lines' has become a great representation of corelian culture and working around the harships of reality. Set in pre-democracy times Dardrich explores the intimate relationship between tradition and wanting to revolutionise focusing around the faladorian wall erected by Viscount Koustass of Taloshia out of paranoia of the autonomy the people of falador asserted with dignity and humility.

    Jonek Klipaste's The Fisherman's Keeper has become not only a greatly visited work of art but is a symbol for Port Elliaje greeti home the fisherman after weeks of trawlering. In a community where fishermen risk their lives to provide while the wives sew nets and tell tales. The keeper is a manifest of the protective will of Port Elleija and she rests her arms as if to cradle the fishermen for safe passage.

    Ladyero Kosozzi's 'The Life We Drew Into a Lake' is a beautiful work of literature focussing around the first democratic election when Viscount Xavier declared Taloshia a dead country and the birth of The New Parliamentary Republic of Os Corelia. In a sign of new birth the new constitution of democracy was copied by hand and thrown into the great lake of Aerodimus in a symbol of rebirth. The story follows Selefkia a young faladorian seekin answers to uestions we follow as she grows to learn her democratic rights and becomes politically involved wanting desperately to meet the Viscount. She meets him once and enters into the electoral college. Throughout she faces dissolutionment but grows stronger in faith in democracy as she helps fall the taloshian beareaucrats still scaring mongering citizens.

    Finally we have Misean Chiempyk's prolific album 'Talk to Strangers' songs based on conversations she had with strangers all across falador when she travelled on the trains. She explored the good nature of faladorians in wanting to share their stories, tales and advice. Even though at first they were strangers all are named with each song called 'Advice from Lealeandrika' or 'Hadrion's family values'. It is a charming collection of songs that will ennoble the beautied heart

    Kwensee Named Countessa as Parliament Explains Peerage System

    user posted image

    Today parliament have revealed the peerage system on the dawn of a new system of citizen awards that was sparked after the announcing of the Faladorian Culture Medal. The Viscoutn earlier this month called for the complete transparency of this syste to assure people that those appointed are done so for great achievement as opposed to donating money.

    It has been detailed that Count Leinnie Vordenveck will be appointed head of The County Hall a house of civil countenance. The house will meet and offer an advisory role to the government as well as carrying a state position of being elders giving them the honour of attending state official events.

    Parliament is makig it clear that all appointed Counts and Countessas will ONLY have a ceremonial role and will not be involved in parliamentary/constitutional reform as they are un-elected and this would go against the Parliamentary Republic constitution of the New Parliamentary Republic of Os Corelia.

    Also today in an official peers statement it was announced the appoint of Gwilis Kwensee to the position of Countessa a motion supported by ruling and oppositon parties with Lord Vasilius placing the motion and a seconding from the Viscount himself.

    There are currently only two counts appointed and two countessas being:

    Count Leinnie Vordenveck & Countessa Heddaridge Vordenveck - a hereditary appointment shared with his spouse Leinnie Vordenveck was the founder of the Os Corelius Party Movement in pre-democratic Taloshia as Corelia was known. He fought for the democracy of the nation and supported Kalistus Xavier in bringin down the regime from within. When the new republic parliament announced a keeping of the head of state title of Viscount, Xavier procalimed that Vordenveck was the architect and father of Corelia democracy therefore the Count of democracy. He was enobled upon the signing of the consttution.

    Count Jibirihal Utzo - Appointed a non-hereditary peer after completing a joint-vicouncy with Viscount Xavier in the first elected government, his appointment by parliament was made by Viscount Xavier and President Vasillius after Utzo failed to reclaim his seat and his party collapsed. The appointment was for service to democracy after securing a successful stable coalition government.

    Countessa Gwilis Kwensee - Appointed a hereditary peer for her service as the first oppositon leader of the nation after forming an opposition coalition under Lyce?an House guidance with the corelian conservative alliance. She fierceley kept the Mutantian Socialist party autunomous within opposition and made great progress for socialist politics campaigning for more welfare systems including job seekers allowance and health bonuses offering free prescriptions to those with less income. She was the only Socialist to retain her seat in the last election and tried to join with the state index party inan opposition coalition but this idea was rejected leading to her expulsion as party leader and her seat under party constitution. She has been the country's leading female politican and was the only leader to have challenged the consitution.

    Also revealed in the County Hall is the order of Barons and Baronesses a title given in citizen awards breated within regional parliaments with the first appointment of the title to be given to the winner of the Faladorian Culture Medal.

    The county hall is on the premesis of the old Taloshian General hall an act of reclaiming dignity.
