Two amendments were proposed, voting on them has begun on 3 March.

Councillors have responded positively to his proposal. For example, the Angletarian counncillor stated "I believe this is a great idea, and would be willing to participate with a presentation on the rich culture of Angleter." and the Inimician councillor: This is a great idea! It will certainly help nations to understand one another better. "We will definitely participate."Other news

    • Marrakechia has announced it will hold a huge music festival. Not much is known about the festival yet, except that the well-known singer Indila will open the event.

    • In the presidential elections in Northern Caesarea, the incumbent president Diana Amat has been re-elected. Her party, the Social Democrats-Greens, went head-to-head with the Liberals. The latter got 36,2% of the vote, and the winner walked away with 63,8%.

    • The National Assembly of Nouvelle Picardie was also up for election. The largest winner was the State Socialist Party (84out of 140 seats, an 11 seat gain) at the coast of the Unaffiliated, who lost 20 seats. Cabinet members retained their positions with one exception. The Party for Prosperity and Cooperation?s Urcon Atoc, former Minister of Culture and Education, was replaced by Nayra Suri from the MPNP. Interestingly Foreign Minister Inti Amuru, also affiliated with the PPC, retained his position as did the unaffiliated Minister of Environment and Rural Affairs, Maita Quenti.

    • Also the Os Corelian cabinet has been reshuffled. The big surprise was the topping of the cabinet list by Maleeka Karpathia-Xavier who has seen a strong resurgence in support from everyone. Knowing that she had such strong support the Viscount had no choice than to offer her a big office and she is returned to her old position of Kaiserin where she is greatly experienced. The Viscount got a wish when Tomak Bazarak didn't feature on the top list leaving the rebel out of Cabinet. The big casualty has been Eldert Trilstrea who was seen as a key player for Hargadoon's visions.

      QUOTE

    After careful thought and due consideration I have decided to award the hosting of World Youth Day to the city of New Birmingham. Although it may have been the only formally submitted bid it is clear that the youth of Angleter are proud of their catholic beliefs and want to welcome the rest of the world's youth to share with them this common held joy, the joy of the great mystery of the Eucharist through which so much hope and joy is given. Cardinal Evans has graced me with such a wonderful invitation and I look forward to celebrating mass with the World's Youth in such glorious churches as St Gregory's and in great outdoor gatherings which will be a spectacle of faith and hope. I look forward ot making this my first official trip aborad as Pontiff

    See you next month!
