THE CONGRESO PASSES THE NEW ELECTORAL LAW: SPAIN HEADS TOWARDS ELECTIONS 1 YEAR LATER BECAUSE OF CONSTITUTIONAL REFORM
Spanish people: We are going into elections once again! Celebration noises can be heard all around Spain. Wait, no, they cannot be heard, because there's none. The Kingdom of Spain will be facing the 6th General Election in 9 years, which means that an election is held every 1.5 year. But if the President has absolute majority on the Congreso and the Senado, why are we heading towards an election no one have asked for? In El Confidencial, we are explaining you why:
- The New Electoral Law: Minor parties have asked for a new electoral law, and the Government has decided to do it, with the risk of having to do a new election after the calculations have been done. And that's how it's been, the calculations exceeded the Constitution limit, which means that a new election sould take place inmmediately. Now the Constitution allows the amendment to happe, the new law was passed before the constitutional amendment, which means that it's legal.
The new Parliament will have 675 seats, 325 more than this legislature, but the Senate is reducing its seats to just 222. The Government of Scotland has said this is a "good change, but still is not enough in the eyes of the Scottish". Many autonomies are now asking for a new Autonomy Status, but that will have to wait until a new parliament is formed and Spain gets a Government; and if this turns up to be like in 2015 or 2019 28th April election.
Motion to deploy the European Relief Force in Eastern Haane
After the European Commission and Flag Commissioner Harriet Copala report, we think it's the perfect time to deploy the European Relief Force in Eastern Haane to send more humanitarian aid to the Haaneans.
SECTION I - DEPLOYMENT
I. The European Relief Force will be deployed on Eastern Haane on 22nd October 2020, 09:00 GMT.
II. The Mission of the European Relief Force will be deploying humanitarian aid in Eastern Haane and helping the civilians.
III. The European Relief Force will be leaded by the Flag Commissioner, Harriet Copala, and overseen by the Internal Affairs Commissioner, Jean-Claude Juncker.
SECTION II - SECURITY AND SURVEILLANCE BY THE EUROPEAN COUNCIL
I. The Security of the European Relief Force will depend of the military deployed in Eastern Haane.
II. Until the European Relief Force retires from Eastern Haane, the European Commission shall post a report twice a month.
III. The European Relief Force shall not enter in conflict with civilians.
Councillors, after the Commission report about the Intervention on Eastern Haane, I'm submitting this motion to authorise the Commission to deploy the European Relief Force.

RE: [Discussion] The Situation in the People's Confederation of Eastern Haane
Councillors, as promissed, I'm reading here today the report made by the European Commission after the Intervention Motion on Eastern Haane was passed by this Council. As said in this report, the ERF is ready to be deployed and we think it's a good moment to deploy it.
After the European Council passed the Motion which proposed the Eastern Haane intervention, the European Commission has been working closely with contenders in order to bring back peace into Eastern Haane. With that said, the European Commission has made a report on the Intervention.
The Intervention started on October 11th, leaded under the Flag Commissioner Harriet Copala, from Inquista. During these 7 days, the No-Fly Zone established by the Four Assembled Powers has remained active and there have been no incidents reported. At the moment, the Intervention hasn't reported any combat or major incidents, and countries are deploying humanitarian aid in the area.
With that said, the European Commission and the Flag Commissioner considers that the intervention is working and we believe it's a good time for deploying the European Relief Force for humanitarian purposes. We believe that Eastern Haane is safe for the ERF.

RE: Repeal the Elected and Accountable Council Act 2020
Excuse me Councillor Gökçen, just a minor mistake you have made when you have used my example: Noctoria has ceased to exist. dissapeared, left the European Union. It has never been purged from the European Union, they just left, dissapeared. Let's say the truth on this chamber please. Thank you.

RE: Europe Day - 19th October 2020
Donald Tusk was in his Europolis' favourite hotel, as he had some pending Council sessions and debates were still going on. He had access to private chats were the members of the Government announced an statement was coming out, and when someone released it, he started to read it. "Perfect", he said. The Government had announced he would attend with the Spanish President to the Europe Day celebrations, which were simply a great idea in Tusk's view.
He got ready and once he had prepared everything, the Spanish Councillor got onto his electric Europolis car. He was lucky enough to have a parking lot in Europolis near the hotel where he could get his car parked with no risk of being stealed or something like that. He entered the garage and then, got onto his car. He turned the engine on and drove to the Airport, where he would meet the Spanish President, Jesús Aguilar, once again.
Jesús Aguilar had prepared his suitcase for this special day, and he woke up early that day. Once he took breakfast, he said goodbye to his family members and got onto the motorcade which would escort him to Torrejón de Ardoz airbase. Meanwhile, he called Tusk to check he was going to give him a lift, and the answer was affirmative. The President arrived at Torrejón de Ardoz, salutated the military personnel he found on his way to the Falcon and boarded on the plane towards Europolis.
During the flight, the President decided to work for 30 minutes and write a book for the other 30 minutes of flight. The flight was expected to last for an hour, because of the windy conditions at an altitude of 12.000 metres, which was something the President understood as a fan of aircraft knowledges and their stuff. The crew told the President that the plane were due to land, and the President got ready for landing. During the approach, the plane flew over the city of Europolis and the President decided to look by the window. He saw the celebrations from his plane and before touching down, he saw a poster from what was supposed to be a Juncker fan. The poster said: "Welcome to Jean-Claude Juncker International Airport - There's nothing better than having a good Junckflight.". Aguilar laughed a bit and said: "I hope this becomes true sometimes".
The Presidential plane landed at Europolis' airport and Tusk picked up Jesús, in order to attend the celebrations.
RE: Repeal the Elected and Accountable Council Act 2020
Well, there's nothing more I can say than Councillor Firoux has said, because I'm very supportive of the Elected and Accountable Council Act, but I will try to get something more than he did and go further, so I can have a similar reasoning but with different words and getting more statements on it.
Councillor Gökçen, I find concerning the fact you want to abolish one of the proposals that has made our Union more democratic, because it makes me think what can we expect from your policies. I know here many Councillors support democracy, but removing this act might be dangerous for the European Union, because of reasons I'll explain later. As a person who was elected by the Spanish people, I would like to give you my view on the matter: The Spanish Government chose a Councillor with no political affiliation, who didn't care about the European affairs,I cannot remember any intervention on this Council from him, and the Spanish people decided to remove him from office and they chose me instead. Since then, I've been in around a 95% of the Sessions the Council has hosted, maybe more than 95% but that's not the main matter. Now, if the Government appoints someone who doesn't care about European Affairs, and the citizens are not happy, shall they wait until a new party rules their country to have a different Councillor? It would be 2, 3, 4 or 5 lost years where they could have fought for their rights as a nation, where non-benefitial laws for them could have been passed in this Council.
You have brought here the case of Angleter, and I want to say something about the matter: That have made me discover what some people think about our Union, about democracy, about hearing their citizens. When someone is scared about losing powers, they try their best to avoid anyone taking a seat they wish giving to another person. Imagine a dictatorship like Noctoria, which dissapeared, appointing a Councillor. This act forces dictatorships to make elections for something at least! Are we letting those oppresed people behind or wiat, let me guess: Let's get daddy Europe to solve it, because they do nothing at the end! This Council shall condemn Dictatorships, of course it should, but shall not be in charge of solving the conflicts in member states, that's why we have a Commission. And Councillor, this act represents the Alkharyans voice, maybe you don't want this place, then resign and let an election happen, they'll vote for other politician or independent candidate who wishes this job more than you do.
Councillor, if you didn't know, one of the European Union's principles is democracy. When a nation joins the European Union, they are supposed to know about our values and about our laws and regulations. If you didn't know about this, don't worry, here we are to tell you that democracy shall be protected by the EU. Of course, we have the European Court of Justice to make individuals, collectives or nations accomplish the law, but this Council, the Commission and the ECoJ shall protect a basic human right as democracy. I would like to thank you for explaining us your political system, which is very useful for myself, but I'm sure regulations exist to allow nations to rule who can run for what place, and if you read the regulations properly, I think this "invented problem" about the Kurultay being unable to dictate who can run and who cannot on Alkharya could have been avoided. In fact, all of this could have been avoided if we just read the legislation passed by this council.
About term limits, you can listen to the Speaker's suggestion maybe and just propose an amendment in order to allow member states to put term limits in place, something I will vote for as I think the European Union shall not restrict what members can and cannot do too much, and if they do, they should do it with the main goal of protecting the values we, as citizens, and our nations, represented by their Government and their Head of State, are supposed to follow, respect and accomplish. If it made the European Union to enter a division, then I guess: A) We have some anti-democrats around and we haven't seen them; B) There are some countries that call theirselves democratic but they don't know what democracy is and never used it or C) They make an election in 4 days without letting candidates a chance to explain their proposals. What is your Councillor?
And again, I disagree with your fourth point. Why shouldn't be a separate entity, because the Government would lose control? Oh, how democratic then it is to control what your Councillor says in this Council. Councillor Gökçen, despite my political affilation to the current ruling party in Spain, the Partido Popular, I represent the 41 million Spaniards which can and cannot vote. In my case, I meet with the Spanish President every week, might be a videocall or a presential meeting, depends on the amount of pending work I have left to do and how many Council sessions we get. We, as Councillors, are responsible of making laws for every European Union State, we shall respect the values and enforce them with our laws and regulations. If a dictatorship wants to have their voice heard in this Council, they will need to take it into an election, with enough guarantees to ensure democracy exists. And if you don't support this statement, I would then need to start doubting about your democratical skills.
Thank you very much for bringing up this debate, but my answer to this is a no. I will stand with those protecting democracy, and this Council is responsible of guaranteing such values and rights to the people, whether you like it or not. I know somes anti-European Union who might be celebrating this proposal: I guess you just want to give them wings. Thak you very much.

RE: Spanish Goverment
STATEMENT - EUROPE DAY
I talk on behalf of the Government I preside when I wish every single European citizen, wether his nation might or might not be an European Union member state, a happy Europe Day. During this years as part of the European Union, The Kingdom of Spain has made new friends, sufferend some conflicts which both parties have been able to solve and established new relationships with many historical nations in Europe.
Spain is now friend of many nations we couldn't imagine we would be friends with, has been benefited from the influential sphere the European Union forms around the different nations and has been able to push forward legislation and amendments in the European Council thanks to our Councillor, Donald Tusk. Moreover, the Kingdom of Spain is also protecting other countries, such as Nofoaga, with whose we keep a really friendly relationship. Apart from that, we co-operate with the Empire of Inimicus sharing military bases in both countries in order to enhace mutual protection and to have stronger relationships.
We shall also recognise the hard work that is being made by Commissioners and the European Council, Institutions which are really necessary to make the European Union work, and I hope their work is never disturbed by the interests of nations or certain people which are not members of theirs.
Europe Day shall be a date to celebrate, and so we will do. Since it was announced that Europe Day would be celebrated for the 1st Time ever, the Government announced it would be a free day for all the Spanish, and so it will be every single year that we stay in this necessary and prosperous Union. Donald Tusk and Myself will join the European Commissioners and leaders in the Europe Day celebrations at Europolis. Happy Europe Day everybody.
RE: Papacito and the Archbishop
Aguilar nodded and sopke once again:
"It's great to hear Spain has become the largest trading partner of Inquista, which by the way some enterprises have told me to thank your country and your government for buying their products. The suspension of all assets with Icholasen in order to follow the EU Law was more than necessary, and I hope that Copala City helps our Nicoleizian friends to find the right path. I agree with the idea of an economic area, which sounds exciting with the Treaty of Finisterre which currency, the EMU, has started to be tested according to what we signed back in August. I hope that our Health Ministries can keep the security controls as usual, as with cargo inspection, to avoid any illnesses to expand along Inquista or Spain because of our products. We cannot allow some products to sink our well-gained reputation. Also, the Strait of Gibraltar applies a 0% tax to Inquista, so there isn't any problems with that. You shall really look into to tax any Strait you get Mikaela, it gives benefits." Said the Spanish President slightly laughing.
