    Commission News

    • The November 2013 Commission Elections have come to an end. The debate was mostly waged between the two contestors for the premiership, Peter Montfort (UEC) and Dr. William Roebuck (ECL). At first, many thought Augustus Barrington was campaigning for the premiership, too, but he placed his trust in Montfort. In the end, neither Barrington nor Montfort were elected Premier, but it was Dr. Roebuck who was awarded the prize. He divided the commission seats with Barrington (Inimicus, UEC) on Foreign Affairs, Eriksson am d'Iunio (Duxburian Union, ECL) on Internal, Von Schroeder (Red Croatia, UEC) on Defence and Peacekeeping and Montfort (Angleter, UEC) on Economics.
    • Commissioner for Foreign Affairs Augustus Barrington has launched a campaign to recruit more recruiters. Since the member count of the EU has recently hit new lows, he is anxious to get more recruiters to join the team. Already, two new recruiters have started recruiting for the European Union.
    • Premier Commissioner Dr. William Roebuck has messaged all European Councillors for his Councillor Survey. This survey is meant to show which subjects concern the European Councillors, and come up with legislation on those areas. The survey's results have already been published:
      QUOTE

    Environment- 6
    Education- 4
    Legal Equality/Human Rights-2
    Easing of Border Laws- 2
    National Sovereignty- 2
    Science research/cooperation- 2

    The following topics were mentioned once during the survey: Nuclear Disarmament, Space, Social Safety Nets, Interregional Mass Transportation, Regional Security, Green Energy, Aviation Safety, Updates on Constitutional/UDoHR Committees, Gun Crime, Fishing Rights/International Water Boundaries, and Health Care.

    The Premier was disappointed, though, by the number of councillors that actually responded. Only about a third of the interviewees replied.

    European Court of Justice News

    • The ECoJ elections have been concluded. There were five nominees, so every candidate is now a Justice. The Chief Justice has been elected as well. Javinas Stidernbaker from Os Corelia was duly elected to this office.

    European Council News

    • The Committee Reform Act was passed 9 to 0. The Act intends to standardise and increase accountability in the organisation of Council committees, and was met with a small amount of constructive criticism, but was unanimously passed.
    • The elections for the Director spot of the European Arts Collaboration Fund are in progress. So far, only one candidate has nominated himself: Count Kairos Jelesniak of Os Corelia.
    • Elections for the spot of Chairman of the European Patent office have also opened. Three candidates have presented themselves: Eric Granger (Qvait), Hippolytos Pankratios (United Romulan Empire) and Sir Arthur Micheal-Harvey (Davishire). So far, Hippolytos Pankratios is taking the lead, followed by Sir Arthur Micheal-Harvey.

    Other News

    • Inquista has been appointed to host the next Eurocup. After a presentation by all candidates (a co-operation of Davishire, United Romulan Empire and Chilterns, Newfoundland, Inquista, Qvait and Os Corelia), Inquista came out to be the best.
    • Eurovoice XIX was hosted by the Microstate of Inquista this month. The theme this time was "Revenge and Redemption", and was meant to give another chance to musicians who failed to win in previous EVs. The winner was Red Croatia with Fifth Harmony.
    • Tensions are rising in the Union of European Conservatives as the Inquistan Councillor threatens to leave the Europarty:
      QUOTE

    With no party leadership, total party mismanagement, and members running around making nuclear weapons without consent, it'd be a total farce to continue in a party like this. If the UEC doesn't get a grip on it's self, or it's party members, Inquista will represent it's self under it's own independent banner, under the ECL or create it's own new credible party.

    The UEC party leadership has not yet responded.

    • The Qvaitican civil war is coming to an end. Recent announcements on the Second Qvaitican War have been issued from the Qvaitican Secretary of Defense. In this announcement, he has said that North Qvait, the rebellious part of the country, was falling. Because of the proximity to the end of the war, many are looking at whether Qvait will finally be reunified as a democracy or will consist of two democratic nations, who are peacefully working together.
    • A team of Inimician miners were arrested in the United Romula Empire for violating environmental laws. Inimician Emperor Hugh Doyle was enraged when he heard of this, and arranged a meeting with the Romulan Praetor. The Praetor came to Inimicus together with the miners. The two heads-of-state held a meeting together, but it has not produced anything fruitful yet.
    • After Dr. Roebuck's election to the Premiership, the first ever councillor elections have been held in Gun-Toting Animals. With 52% of the vote, Eric Fox has been chosen by the people of GTA. Fox and his faction of the People's Center Party are notorious anti-integrationists and Fox clashed with President Colt over his views on the European Union. Despite being elected as Councillor, Fox will still have to take orders from Colt on how to represent the Confederacy in Europolis.
    • Diplomatic tensions between Os Corelia and Qvait have risen as Qvatican spies were caught in Os Corelia. The Corelian Secret Service seized the Qvatican embassy and its assets as part of an investigation onto allegations of Qvaitican spies gathering intelligence on Os Corelia then reportedly going rogue. The spies were eventually caught by the Corelians.
    • The long-lasting civil war in the United Romulan Empire has ended. Several European nations blockaded the country for weeks. Also, in the case of the Inimician miners, the Romulan Praetor resigned. He found the pressure too great.
    • With upcoming elections in Davishire, the liberal candidate has threatened the EU and his own country by saying he is not afraid to lead Davishire in a military conflict over the production of nuclear weapons. Davishire has been denied a license by the European Nuclear Weapons Association, but the Liberal Party is not afraid of the ENAA.That's it for this month! See you next time!

    Feel free to suggest any addittional news or information which should be added to the update. I will produce the final version on 10 December

    Commissioner Barrington



  • Inquista will be hosting 2nd Euro Cup wink.gif


  • ECoJ

    Oh, I really overlooked that? I'm sorry, I've edited the update.



  • I think the Other News section needs to be beefed up.

    • Gun Toting Animals had its first ever Councillor election to replace now Premier Roebuck

    • Os Corelia and Qvait had spy troubles and diplomatic tensions

    • URE war ended, the URE blockade, Praetor resigned as a result of the Inimican Miner fiasco

    • Davishire's nuke happy Liberal Party forced the Duxburian Union to make a warning statement.

    These are some fairly major things that are newsworthy. Obviously more detail needs to be added to what I just said though


  • ECoJ

    Thank you, I have added your points in.

    Cultural ambassadors must now post the update on their respective forums:
