After a heated debate in both committees of Finance in which the privatisation of certain state enterprises requested and the economy Commissionof in which the elimination of the forms AB-1 and D-21 were asked which have always served as a barrier to those who want to put their own business, as well as the creation of seminars for innovation and entrepreneurial energy, Both comissions passed the three request with 9 votes in favour in the Finance comission and 10 votes in favour in the Economy comission. The plenary session also was another heated debate in which the Christian Democrats and Liberals radically opposed the proposal, while the Conservatives, Social Democrats, the Alliance of the Province of Brauer and the Social Liberals were in favor.
"In the past privatization was the first reason why Sitanova came to a precarious economic situation and since 2012 when the Christian Democrats came to power Nationalization has helped improve the economy to reach the perfect economy we have," he said Rachel Morrison MP of the Christian Democrat Party.
Baroness Michelle Johnson said. "Unfortunately our dear fellow Christian Democratic Party and the Liberal Party does not want to see and try to make us forget the past. Remember that in the past Liberal governments and the Christian Democrats goverments made nationalization of enterprises to give employment to corrupt officials and their friends and family. "
"Not only do not want to see the error in protecting the nationalization and non-business inovation, but have also protected their corrupt officials, currently perhaps the Prime Minister is not corrupt, but its officials especially those working in state enterprises are the main corrupt employees "said MP Gustav Merkz the Social Liberal Party.

SITANOVAN INTERNAL ELECTIONS 2016 SPECIAL COVERAGE
Opening music Begins:
Then the camera focuses on the three presenters of election coverage.
"Good evening and welcome everyone to the special report of the primaries of the Royal Telecorporation (RTÉ), I am Harold Neville and I will have the pleasure to be your host, as well I will be accompained by the analysts Laura Schonenberg and Peter Van Daar. After a long and tiring election day within each of the five traditional political parties and after the final count has begun here in the studio RTE talk a while of political figures who participated in this primary election and possible results , are tuned as live also present the results of the primaries whose conference will be provided in 30 minutes.Well without further ado I would like to ask each of our guests disitinguidos that has seemed primary elections and what are your expectations ?, Laura why don´t we start with you.
"Good evening everyone, well Harold think this primary election has been the most notorious of all primary since 1984, because for the first time a prime minister who has tried to reelect as in the case of Sarah Poschenko has failed to maintain a high leadership within his party, while inside the other parties have seen that the favorite to win the nomination has maintained and increased its support, so here for me this has been the most symbolic of the primary and in terms of results, I think that within the Christian Democrats we take a surprise because until now the Prime Minister and his main opponent are technically tied, while conservatives is almost certain that Michelle Johnson won, these are my expectations".
"What about you Peter?"
"Well first of all I send a greeting to the audience. I, like Laura agree that this has been a very symbolic but also a very quiet primary election and that on this occasion we have seen peace with which citizens have acted and I think that helps us to strengthen democracy, also by first time citizens abroad could vote for the primaries. As a result I think the PM Poschenko achieved the nomination, as Johnson CP, SLP Harold Marks, Maxwell Oats LPS, Gustav Chamberlain BPA and Caroline Mertz SDP".
"Of course it could not be more agree, I think we had a very noticeable primary elections and very quiet at once. But now tell me in the unlikely event that all the favorite candidates and that were mentioned by Peter should win the nomination ,what could you think the outcome will be in the General Elections on June 4th?" Laura?".
"Well Harold, I believe that Michell Johnson and Sarah Poschenko will be the firts two positions although we can barely predict who may win, because both candidates have a small margin of difference in different Polls, while the SLP and the SDP will end in 3rd and 4th, and the LPS and the BPA in 5th and 6th, also we have to wait and see who will be the candidates of the Communist Party and the New Nationalist Pary, who are very unkown political parties".
" What´s your opinion peter?"
"Well Harold I personally beleive that Michelle Johnson will win over Sarah Poschenko for her audacity and skills as successful economist and as MP, while the rest of the parties will en: SLP, LPS, SDP and BPA and like Laura said we will have to wait until next week to meet the other two candidates from the ComP and the NNP".
"Well thank you for your opinion and sorry to interrupt you, but the Council of elections will give their official results in the Priamries of the SDP and the BPA, let´s see".
The camara shows the Council of elections stage and it´s president Sir Gerald Bauhaus procedes:
" Dear Sitanovans today we have done history as we have recorded the most pacifist primary elections since it´s establishment in 1984. Today I will read the results of the Social Democrat Party and the Brauer Province Alliance Primary election final results.

P.G:"Well now speak us about your parliamentary candidates competing under the banner of SDP".
C.M; "Well all my MP candidates are people like me honest, transparent and workers, and are almost entirely new people especially youth and the truth is that only 15% of my MP's candidates are seeking re-election".

The camera now focuses on the RTE stage:
H.N: " Well I think the nomination of the candidates of the Conservatives, Liberals and Social Liberals was something predictable to happen however I think anyone ever imagined that the Prime Minister Poshcenko would lose the nomination of his party in favor of her own Minister of Education. What do yo think?
P.G: "Well I have came to the same conclusion as yo did Harold, however I did expected Prime Minister to lose because since mid-internal election, PM Poschenko was losing supporters.

SAINT PETER AND SAINT PAUL CITY- Today the Commissioner against Impunity and corruption Sitanova appeared before the General Prosecutor a request for investigation against former prime ministers: Ivan Gabrilov (1996-2000, 2000-2004) and Michael Cohens (2004-2008), so as 20 former government officials from the two administrations from which the most notably former Finance Minister Sir Joseph Poschenko, who also is the brother of the current Prime Minister Sarah Poscehnko is implied in the case, also against hundred former Members of Parliament who belonged to the now defunct National Alliance of Sitanova Party, whose Secretary General and Main founder was Ivan Grabrilov and his main fundraiser was Michael Cohens.. The Comission points these former public servers of llicit enrichment, corruption and money laundering.
One of the most remarkable case of corruption is that of the former state company of Petrolium of Sitanova which was led by former Prime Minister Gabrilov between 2004 and 2006, in which the company had just lost and serious indebtedness, but they made it look like it was alright to justify the great amounts of money earned by the CEO of the company and former Prime Minister Gabrilov that were transeferred to his Bank Account in the Central Bank of Sitanova every payday.
At present none of the former officials mentioned has held political office, all go about their own business and as well as there are 15 suspects who do not reside in the country since 2008 and no one has heard of his whereabouts.
Now what remains to wait is whether the Attorney General's Office proceeds to investigate or not, and if this investigation goes, the General Prosecutor has one week to present at the National Parliament before the commission of Government Ethics and against corruption, then it would pass to the plenary session and if approved the Supreme Court proceeds to cancel their bank accounts, and list them on trial in the Court against Corruption and if this proceeds pass into the hands of the Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justicie where if found guilty, they will have to face up to 40 years in a Federal maximum security prison. However, if votation do not pass in the National Parliament, there is still the protection that the plaintiff can make to the Court of corruption, which of they agree, it would follow the same process as detailed
