NEWS:Chetan Nagarkar continues campaign

Chetan Nagarkar spotted after delivering a series of leaflets


- (Fortaleza, Fernão)

Chetan Nagarkar was spotted on the campaign trail again this morning, after assisting local volunteers to coordinate the start of an official phone banking campaign the RGA-backed candidate joined energetic locals to distribute leaflets across several housing estates and slums in the city, with the RGA-backed candidate spotted speaking to several residents of the city and expressing his wishes to improve living conditions in the city by constructing new affordable housing and improving the city's dilapidated infrastructure.

After completing the leaflet-drop campaign and having lunch with the local volunteers and staffers Chetan Nagarkar gave a speech to a local community centre, one that was also livestreamed on facebook, pericope, youtube and the campaign website (Nagarkar.fn)

"Good evening, ladies and gentlemen,

I am extremely proud that I grew up in this city, and when I have spoken to fellow locals during this campaign they've also expressed a similar sentiment but they've also talked about the appalling condition of the local housing, the crumbling state of the local infrastructure, the poor state of the local economy and the rising cost of living. Yesterday I signed a commitment to fighting against homelessness and removing the scourge of slums and unlivable housing by constructing affordable housing for purchase and rent, and expressed my support for small and local businesses and talked to them about my ambition to repair and modernise our infrastructure and strengthen our public services.

I've also heard that one of my rivals Nick Haverkamp gave a speech to the local branch of the Chamber of Commerce recently, and while I agree that we need to make Fortaleza an attractive place for local and international investment I also find myself in sharp disagreement with another portion of his speech, that being the use of the private sector in the redevelopment of our cities infrastructure.

We need to invest in affordable housing, strong public services and modern and efficient infrastructure but we also need to ensure that we get the best deal for the Fortalezan taxpayers, and we've seen countless examples from cities across the world of private corporations profiteering from government contracts. In order to negate that risk, we need to ensure that our local government maintains open bidding procedures for these types of contracts and respects the principles of transparent governance.

As for Ulisses Seabra? I have heard some of his campaign speeches and I have to say they don't ring true with me. You know I have lived in this city my entire life. It is one of the reasons I am fighting to ensure that everyone in this city has the opportunity to purchase or rent a place they can call home, that we have strong public services, modern and efficient infrastructure and well-paying jobs to offset the cost of living and while I have mentioned that I wish to attract international investment I did so because I want our economy to grow so that we can afford to improve the living conditions for everyone. It should also be said that the Fernão Phalanx Movement which Ulisses Seabra belongs to wishes to end the current system of democracy in this country by banning all other political parties.

At the end of the day, you have a clear choice ahead of you. You can support Nick Haverkamp, a candidate supported by the wealthy elite and one that won't really address the complaints of the working and middle class, Ulisses Seabra, a candidate that claims to stand up for the working and middle class while working for an extreme political party that wishes to end the multi-party system of democracy we fought for, or you can support me, a candidate that is truly invested in improving the living conditions of everyone in this city by improving local infrastructure and public services, building affordable properties and helping small and medium businesses create thousands of new well-paying jobs."

Viel Attends Local Community Project, Chief of Staff Addresses Recent Leaks
Nuñes Fox, Fernão News Network | June 14, 2017

Image
Viel's Chief of Staff, Melissa Zhang, addressed reporters in a darkened room in Viel's headquarters.


- (Govila, Ferdinand, Fernão) Recently, Alexios Viel was spotted working with volunteers and supporters alike to plant trees at a local park. From our sources here in FNN, no reporters were made aware of Senator Viel's participation in the project, and was only seen after some of his supporters posting pictures of him with a shovel, digging a small hole in the ground to plant a tree sapling, online. Luckily, before the project ended, one of our FNN reporters was able to catch up to him. Viel was visibly sweating, and his gloves were grimy with dirt from all the shovelling and accommodating the saplings in their new home. Here's what he had to say.

"Whenever a politician has the time, they should always give back to their constituents in more ways than just legislation. My wonderful staff was able to handle some of my paperwork, so I was able to come here without too much hassle."

When asked why he chose the specific project, he stated, "People sometimes don't realise just how amazing and enriching it is to come down here and just sit in these parks, with the fountain pleasantly gurgling and the wind going through the trees. Some on the right may call me tree-hugging, but this is an experience that I enjoy, and I want to make sure that future generations will be able to enjoy it too. I'm just pitching in here in this small project, but the Red-Green Alliance is focused on much larger things, like the National Park system, of which a bill was introduced by a fellow RGA Senator of mine. Obviously I can't go to a national park today, so I make do with what I can do here."

After that, he left, not commenting on his opponent's recent interview. Although Viel took this day off, his schedule has been near breakneck, with back-to-back appearances at a local farmer's hall and union meeting. He's also been actively involved in the fundraising efforts, personally phonebanking and going door-to-door in lower-class neighborhoods, seeing as they might not have access to a television or mailing service to hear his message. Viel's also been spotted taking pictures with his supporters in all sorts of environments: urban cities, farms, schools and even at a sewage treatment plant, his supporter laughing at Viel's scrunched face over the smell. However, Viel was soon laughing afterwards, and a few photos later show he left the plant smiling, nostrils hopefully still intact.

In other news, Viel's Chief of Staff, Melissa Zhang, had tough words for the Civic Union after it was revealed in an FNN report that Civic Union operatives had deliberatively cyber-attacked and attempted to sabotage their operations.

"These allegations of cyberattacks are incredibly serious, and I have been in contact with cybersecurity experts to assess our current situation and to better secure our operations. This is dirty politics at its worst, and it only goes to show how desperate our opponents are to silence our message to the people of Fernão — the message of a better, cleaner and more prosperous nation. As well, we have been in contact with private security firms, and have increased the security presence at our headquarters, subsidiary offices and volunteering centres. We will never stop fighting for the people of this great country, no matter how many obstacles those who wish to silence us may throw at us."

Asked if whether she believes Agramonte, Viel's opponent, had a role in this situation, Zhang said, "I do not personally believe that Mr. Agramonte's campaign had anything to do with these alleged physical and cyberattacks, but we hope that he'll be sufficiently strong as to condemn the alleged attacks made against us. After all, he is clearly benefiting from these attacks, whether aware or unaware — now that he is aware, we await his condemnation of the alleged attacks made against us."

EDIT: It was recently stated by the Department of Justice and Policing that the leaks were of false nature, and that a criminal investigation has been launched. Chief of Staff Zhang has stated that "for precautions sake, we will continue our fortifications of our internet assets, though we have cancelled the increased physical security. I won't feel safe about this until this election is over — Mr. Agramonte does not need to condemn these discredited attacks, and our campaigns will be in contact soon over increased cybersecurity for both operations."

NEWS: Red-Green Alliance go on the offensive
Wake Snapper, Fernão News Network | June 15 2017

Seo-Yeon attends a local party event


- (Miliband, Fernão)

In the last few days it was indicated that Senator Shim Seo-Yeon would be taking a far more active role in the current political campaign, and it appears that those sources were correct. After talking to a large gathering of her current constituents alongside longtime friend and ally David Lyons (RGA), the former Secretary of Public Works and the current Chief Minority Whip (respectively) immediately hopped onto an RGA coach and started to get to work on the wider national campaign trail.

Over the course of the following hours both clocked up some impressive mileage as they together visited the relatively marginal constituencies of Sarkar 1st, contested by Aminah Hadi, Sarkar 2nd, being contested by Reza Kassem and Ferdinand 2nd currently being contested by John Smith. In all of these seats, Shim Seo-Yeon and David Lyons took part in phone banking and fundraising efforts, delivered leaflets and posters and also helped introduce the candidates during rallies and campaign speeches.

Taking tips from Senator Lyons, whose impressive campaign schedule left many awed during the last election cycle, the Former Secretary made a remarkable display of stamina, maintaining an energetic pace throughout the day. Observers noted that she took the time to talk with local campaign staff and civilians and allowed virtually everyone to take a ludicrous amount of selfies, including with friend and confidant Reza Kassem, the former Mayor of Miliband running for Sarkar 2nd.

It is believed that Senator Seo-Yeon will host another event in her constituency before once again heading out into the national campaign to assist more RGA figures attempting to win their own elections.

BREAKING NEWS: Kassem goes on the offensive against Ferreira
Wake Snapper, Fernão News Network | June 14 2017

Image
Reza Kassem (pictured) at a rally in Khan, Sarkar


- (Miliband, Fernão) As his whistle-stop tour with gubernatorial candidate David Bloom continues into its second day, Reza Kassem has taken to criticizing his opponent, Michael Ferreira of the Coalition of Workers and Farmers. After an attendee asked about a recent press release from Vice President Buddha Gonorrhea that claimed Ferreira was not a career politician, Kassem had this to say:

“That's quite a claim by the Vice President. Well, let's take a look at he facts. Last month, Michael Ferreira was nowhere near Sarkar's second district, the very seat he is attempting to earn the right to represent now. In fact, he was nowhere near Sarkar. Last month Michael Ferreira was running for the Senate in Ferdinand. Ferdinand's second district, to be specific. Now there's nothing necessarily wrong with that. After all, Michael Ferreira lived in Ferdinand; he still does, in fact. As far as I know, he's never lived in Sarkar, much less the very district he now seeks to represent. In fact, I'd be willing to bet that the first time he set foot in this district was when he filed to run!

“But if Michael Ferreira loved Ferdinand so much, why has he suddenly packed up and came to Sarkar? To answer that, we need only look at how Michael Ferreira did in his race to represent Ferdinand's second. Not well. Not well at all. The people of Ferdinand rejected him, by eighteen points no less. Seeing that Ferdinand did not want him, Michael Ferreira has come to Sarkar. Well, let me say that everyday, when I go out to meet and talk with the people of Sarkar's second, my constituents, I get the idea that Sarkar does not want Michael Ferreira either! Michael Ferreira: a career politician from Ferdinand. If Sarkar wanted that, we'd just elect Priscilla Krishnan!

“Michael Ferreira may think that he can pull a fast one on the people of Sarkar, but I know better. The people of Sarkar want to hear about how we plan to create jobs, like I did as Mayor of Miliband — Miliband is in Sarkar by the way, in case Mr. Ferreira didn't know. The people of Sarkar want to hear about how we're going to improve living standards and tackle inequality and poverty, not about privatizing public services, like Michael Ferreira voted to do in the Senate. That's why I'm asking the people of Sarkar to vote for me. I promise to always work for the betterment of you, the people, whether you voted for me or not. And if it makes a difference, I actually live in Sarkar!”

Chetan Nagarkar signs a pledge to reduce homelessness in the city


- (Miliband, Fernão)

Chetan Nagarkar, candidate for Mayor of Fortaleza took time to visit a local community projected dedicated to feeding and housing people that have been left homeless, during his visit the Mayoral candidate helped staff feed the homeless patrons of the shelter, and listened to the tales of the volunteers as he helped sort the inventory of supplies and clean the mountain of plates and assorted cutlery left behind after every meal.

During the course of the day, Chetan Nagarkar also talked with several homeless residents and listened to their stories on how they ended up in their current circumstances with a majority of complaints leading back to the civil war and the subsequent lack of affordable and livable housing provided by the government or the private sector. At the end of the trip, Chetan Nagarkar signed a commitment to construct a mixture of affordable housing for purchasing and rent for the working and middle class of the city and said that he will return to the shelter every week to help the local volunteers.

In addition to this visit Chetan Nagarkar also visited a local bakery and confectionary, and was seen trying his hand at making some local hard candy before he gave a brief question and answer session to the workers and owners, during which he refrained from calling for a repeal of the Fernoan Capital Act but simply stated that it needed to be amended to give more powers to the local legislature.

Despite falling behind in recent polls Chetan Nagarkar remained optimistic throughout the day and during the Q&A session repeatedly reaffirmed his commitment to constructing affordable housing, supporting small and local businesses, improving local infrastructure and making it known to the wider international community that Fortaleza is ready and willing to accept international investment so that the local government could afford to transform the city into a city people can afford to live in comfortably.

BREAKING NEWS: Red-Green Alliance endorses candidates for parliamentary elections
Alexander Gouda, Fernão News Network | June 14 2017

- (Fortaleza, Fernão) The Red-Green Alliance has made endorsements in several races in the upcoming parliamentary, governor and mayoral elections. A majority of the endorsed candidates come from the party itself, but the Alliance has also endorsed Mengistu of the Communist Party and Kshatriya of Forward Fernão. You can see the press release below:

Official Press Release of the Red-Green Alliance


The Red-Green Alliance is proud to release its list of endorsed candidates for the upcoming parliamentary elections:

Senate:
Maabara At-Large: Shim Seo-yeon (RGA) [Malgrave]
SA-1: Aminah Hadi (RGA) [Tasimah]
SA-2: Reza Kassem (RGA) [Collatis]
SA-3: Raghav Kshatriya (FF!) [Tumbra]
FD-2: John Smith (RGA) [Nation of the People of the Nation]
Eastern Fortaleza: Theresa April (RGA) [Magora]
FD-3: José Luis Echeverría (RGA) [Turealia]
FD-4: Alexios Viel (RGA) [Tectonix]
NG-2: Nisha Gadhavi (RGA) [Socialist Nordia]
NG-3: Iyasu Isaias Mengistu (Communist Party) [Atlantica]

State:
New Guernsey Governor: Socialist Nordia (RGA)
Fortaleza Mayor: Chetan Nagarkar (RGA)
Sarkar Governor: David Bloom (RGA)

Ten to twenty staffers have been sent to each district to help the preferred candidates with their campaigns.


The Red-Green Alliance declined to endorse a candidate in the NG-1 constituency, where they have no candidate running. It is believed that the party does not wish to alienate the leadership of the Humanist Union or the Communist Party by supporting one party over the other as that might harm future coalition talks. It is also believed that similar concerns stopped the party from nominating either candidate in the FG-1 constituency as well.

Opinion: Forward Fernão! forever | David Books
David Books, Fernão News Network | June 14 2017

I put forward Forward Fernão! as the best party for Fernão!


As the Red-Green Alliance and Civic Union play petty politics in Fortaleza, the rest of the country waits for change. It would not be entirely inaccurate to say that the political establishment is fiddling while Fernão burns. But just as En Marche! rose to power in France as a rejection of the Socialist-Republican dichotomy, Forward Fernão! is rising from the ashes of Fernão's failed political establishment. One could say that founder and party leader Raghav Kshatriya rose from the ashes of the Red-Green Alliance. Kshatriya was once the Chief Whip of the Red-Green Alliance, but he has turned his back on their failures. It is time for the people of Fernão to follow suit, and turn their backs of the failures of the RGA and CU.

Kshatriya and Forward Fernão! has proven that what matters is not what is left and right, but what is right and wrong. Not dissimilarly from En Marche! in France and the Nick Xenophon Team in Australia, Forward Fernão! advocates for reason-based politics. They take the best parts of the left and the right, and combine them to form the radical centre. Of course, there's nothing radical about radical centrism; it's purely about using pragmatism to tackle the structural obstacles that Fernão faces. The Civic Union is controlled by corporations and foreign investors, while behind the Red-Green Alliance you will find only the General Union of Workers. Neither offer the sort of independent thinking that is needed if we wish to make Fernão truly great. Forward Fernão! has boldly rejected this false dichotomy, and promises to combat both corporate and union corruption.

It should be clear to my lovely readers by now that I have finally found a party I can proudly support. For all the reasons above, and many more, I strongly endorse the candidacy of Raghav Kshatriya in Sarkar's 3rd district. Mr. Kshatriya's victory will be the harbinger of a new era of politics in Fernão, one dominated by the rational centre, and I can't wait.

Opinion: Reza Kassem is the only choice for SA-2 | David Books
David Books, Fernão News Network | June 14 2017

The race for SA-2 may disappoint, but Reza Kassem (pictured) is the only choice


I think it's safe to say that the increasingly partisan political scene in Fernão has only further dismayed our nation's radical centrists. They will not find solace in the race in Sarkar's 2nd district. Voters there face a choice between the Red-Green Alliance's Reza Kassem and the Coalition of Workers and Farmers' Michael Ferreira. Neither are anywhere close to ideal. Kassem originates from a somewhat reasonable wing of the RGA, but he still looks to government first and foremost when it comes to change and progress. However, I have no choice but to endorse Mr. Kassem, for his opponent is far worse. Meet Michael Ferreira, self-proclaimed supporter of protectionism and opponent of free trade. While Kassem looks to government for solutions, Ferreira looks somewhere much worse: the past. Ferreira's candidacy represents the white backlash against an increasingly diverse and global society. On election day, SA-2's voters must reject that vision.

Reza Kassem has made clear on the campaign trail that he is no strong supporter of free trade. Kassem calls for fair trade, and labour and environmental protections in trade deals. Mr. Kassem may not realize that free trade is fair trade, but he still accepts that increased trade and globalization should not be avoided. Ferreira, on the other hand, rails against trade and the World Trade Organization, and calls for protective tariffs, while voting with the Civic Union in favor of Cabinet Secretaries who seek to brutally privatize our public services, I might add.

In my previous endorsement of Raghav Kshatriya, I celebrated the rise of the centre, in the form of Forward Fernão. I compared FF! to France's En Marche!. Michael Ferriera's Coalition for Workers and Farmers represents a different breed of centrism entirely. The Coalition is far more New Zealand First than En Marche!. It is xenophobic, backwards, and bad for business. Fernão must embrace immigration, trade, and globalization, not reject them. Reza Kassem may not be the ideal candidate, but he is the only choice for SA-2.

BREAKING NEWS: Bloom and Kassem campaign throughout Sarkar

David Bloom (right) and Reza Kassem (left) on their way to a rally in Khan, Sarkar


- (Miliband, Fernão) David Bloom, candidate for Governor of Sarkar, and Reza Kassem, candidate for Sarkar's 2nd district, are currently engaging in a joint whistle-stop tour across eastern Sarkar. Both candidates are members of the Red-Green Alliance and Bloom previously held Kassem's current seat. After Bloom's resignation to prepare for a run for Governor, Kassem, Bloom's former Chief of Staff and Mayor of Miliband, was elected in the subsequent by-election by a surprisingly large margin. Bloom and Kassem are close allies in the social democratic wing of the RGA, and both have endorsed one another in their respective races.

Both Bloom and Kassem have so far run populist campaigns. Kassem has made a point of criticizing Michael Ferreira, his CTA opponent, for his votes in favor of the failed nominees for Public Works and Health and Labour, Arslan Shapur and Patricio Magrina. At a rally in Miliband, Kassem stated, "Michael Ferreira claims to stand for workers and farmers, but he has voted again and again for neoliberal nominees who would privatize public services and weaken unions and labor rights! The people of SA-2 deserve a Senator who will stand up to Priscilla Krishnan's neoliberal agenda of deregulation and privatization! The people of SA-2 deserve better than Michael Ferreira!"

Bloom currently leads, while Kassem trails, in the polls, but a significant amount of Sarkar voters remain undecided, meaning both races could go either way.

BREAKING NEWS: Senate rejects controversial Krishnan nominees
Wake Snapper, Fernão News Network | June 9 2017

Image
The defeated nominees: Arslan Shapur (left) for Public Works and Patricio Magrina (right) for Health and Labour


- (Fortaleza, Fernão) The Senate has rejected two of the President's nominees in a shocking blow to the Krishnan Administration. Dr. Emily Ndereba, the noncontroversial nominee for Finance and Economic Development, easily cruised through confirmation, with only the Communist Party, the Union of Anabaptists, and the Fernão Phalanx Movement voting against. Before the vote, most of the attention inside and outside of the Senate Chamber had been focused solely on Arslan Shapur, the nominee for Public Works. Shapur created controversy due to his support for privatization and deregulation, adherence to the ideology of 'Pinarchism', in reference to the economic policies of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet, and supposed former support for Amir Soetoro, the dictator who ruled Fernão for over three decades. However, when voting began, Shapur was not the only one to be defeated. Patricio Magrina, the nominee for Health and Labour, was expected to be confirmed fairly easily, especially with the opposition's attention focused at Shapur. However, Magrina was defeated by the same margin as Shapur: two votes.

Patricio Magrina may not have been as controversial as Arslan Shapur, but his neoliberal economic views were too the source of his defeat. Though Magrina's views on most issues remain unknown, due to his refusal to answer any questions, setting him aside from the other nominees, his adherence to neoliberalism led to strong opposition from the General Union of Workers and most other unions. The confirmation votes for Shapur and Magrina were seen as a test of the Coalition of Workers and Farmers' loyalty to the Civic Union, due the natural conflicts between a self-proclaimed populist party and Cabinet nominees set on deregulation and privatization. However, the Coalition mostly stuck with the President, with all but one Senator voting for (Sílvio da Costa Oliveira abstained, but his vote was disqualified). The Humanist Union and Forward Fernão ! also stuck to the party line. The nominees were defeated nonetheless, due to strong opposition from the Red-Green Alliance and the Communist Party, with not a single member of the opposition voting for either.

The rejection of the two nominees is a victory for new Senate Minority Leader Nisha Gadhavi, who replaced the retiring David Bloom recently. As much as it is a victory for Gadhavi and the RGA, though, it is more of a defeat for Senate Majority Leader Indira Tamboli and the Civic Union. The Majority Leader was already on thin ice with President Krishnan, and this latest defeat could spell the end for Tamboli. There are still several remaining Cabinet nominees that the Senate is set to vote on, though none are expected to be as controversial.

UPDATE: President Krishnan has renominated both unsuccessful nominees. More on this coming up.

Never again can we allow a tyrant to rule over these shores, so please, join me in voting for Shazeen Kahn as the next governor of this great state!"

The video, which shows Khan and the man in close quarters, was mailed by a private source to FNN reporter Barry Sanderstein, who forwarded the tape to our headquarters. This story is still developing. The President's office, Khan, her family, and her opponents have yet to comment. The video has been made available on our website.

BREAKING NEWS: The Poll That Changed An Election | Ferdinand Gubernatorial By-Election
Jon Lime, Fernão News Network | June 6 2017

Image
Kahn on her campaign's battle bus


- (Ferdinand, Fernão) Turn on any TV station, and you will hear it: 'TOGETHER, WE CAN MAKE A STAND FOR DEMOCRACY". They're the words that have dragged a previously quiet by-election into the national focus. The backdrop is a slew of polls that have shown Shazeen Kahn, once a shoe-in to be the next Governor of Ferdinand, fall to just a three point lead.

In itself, it is not remarkable. Though the early favourite, it was always going to be a hard fought battle in a midterm by-election for a candidate so close to the governing party. Especially when you consider the torrid performance the Civic Union had in the state's parliamentary elections, where they failed to win a single seat. Indeed, Kahn herself had twice failed to be elected to the Senate from the state.

What is remarkable, however, was that it wasn't the Union of Anabaptists' Benjamin Achleitner who was closing the gap but Glauco Clemente Machado of the Phalanx movement - a far right, populist party which has previously struggled to gain traction netting just one Senator - on a list seat - in the previous elections. Flooded with cash, the Phalanx movement has weaponised the corruption scandal that prematurely ended Buddha Gonzaga term as Governor and the political deadlock in the Senate, which has seen President Krishan go without a Cabinet for the entirety of her Presidential term thus far.

Kahn, a former advisor to the President was quick to react the poll, releasing a statement arguing that the election was "no longer between the left and the right, but between those who believe in Fernaoese democracy and those who would tear it to the ground." It's a message that has been spread nationwide, with the Civic Union buying airtime on TV and radio urging people to 'unite for democracy', accompanied by pleas for donations.

The tone of her campaign has also shifted. Kahn, who had been previously seen as an unengaging policy wonk, has abandoned her small town hall events which largely focused on local issues to impassioned speeches that seldom mention policy, or indeed herself. In the words of FNN Political Analyst, Imran Lee "The polls have changed this election, Kahn hopes that all she has to do is mention her opponent and dodge all criticism of herself. Whether it works remains to be seen."

A visit tomorrow by President Krishnan is also expected to give the campaign a boost whilst volunteers have been dispatched from Civic Union strongholds like neighbouring Sakhar - fronted by the Kahn campaigns battle bus which has seen the candidate make whistlestop tours to all the major settlements in the state - whilst the campaign is utilizing the canvassing data from the successful Krishnan Presidential campaign.

The campaign told FNN that they hope when voters realise that it is a "straight fight between democracy and chaos, polls will begin to uptick. The eyes of the nation are on Ferdinand, and I know this great state won't disappoint them at all."

BREAKING NEWS: Mococan Independence Party ramps up campaign | New Guernsey News

- (Grenton, Fernão) What would ordinarily be an uneventful local election on a little known Fernoan island in south New Guernsey has gained the attention of politicians and political junkies across the nation. The town of Mococa may be small, it has a population of 2,884, but by no means is it boring, at least not this year. There are four parties competing in the town's upcoming municipal elections: the Red-Green Alliance, the Civic Union, the Communist Party of Fernão, and the Mococan Independence Party. The first three will sound familiar to anyone with at least a basic understanding of Fernoan politics, but the MIP only runs in Mococa, though it is loosely affiliated with the state-wide New Guernsey National Party. Want to know what the Mococan Independence Party stands for? It's in the name; Mococan independence. The party recognizes that the dream of independence may be a long shot, and also supports efforts to establish direct democracy and devolution for Mococa. While the MIP was once considered a non-factor, the party has risen to the forefront of Mococan politics, thanks to frustration with the two main political parties.

Top FNN reporter Jon Lime (me) caught up with party leader and mayoral candidate Barry Chiroto. Chiroto had this to say about his party's chances in the elections, "Well Jon, we've been campaigning nonstop for a while now. We're running strong candidates, with long histories in the communities they seek to represent, in every district in Mococa. The amount of volunteers we've gotten is, I believe, unprecedented in the history of Mococan politics. We have people ranging from high school-age to retirees, who are so excited about our message of hope and change for Mococa that they need to get involved themselves. While other parties have had to rely on off-islanders, our team is 100% Mococan. We're canvassing all over the island, registering voters and spreading our message. We recently released our official party platform, where we promise to fix the broken pension system, tackle the rising cost of living, clean up our polluted waterways, develop San Jose Park, bring an end to the landfill, and, most importantly, push for more self-government for Mococa and an independence referendum. The Mococan Independence Party will put democracy into action."

To say that elections are hard to predict on Mococa would be an understatement. No polling has been done, and the small town is notoriously independent, having governed itself through its town council for nearly 100 years. Whether Mococa will opt for a more radical change with the Mococan Independence Party is yet to be seen, but all of New Guernsey should look forward to a very interesting election night.

BREAKING NEWS: Civic Disunion? President considering replacing Majority Leader | The Grapevine
Wake Snapper, Fernão News Network | May 28 2017

Image
Majority Leader Indira Tamboli (left) and President Priscilla Krishnan (right)


- (Fortaleza, Fernão) FNN has received word of disunion in the Civic Union's ranks. According to an exclusive FNN source close to the President, Priscilla Krishnan and her staff are becoming increasingly frustrated with Indira Tamboli, the Senate Majority Leader, and are considering showing the veteran politician the door. Members of the President's inner circle have reportedly approached Emmanuel Carvallo to recruit him to run against Tamboli in the next internal leadership race. Tamboli currently serves as Parliamentary Leader of the Civic Union, while Carvallo serves as Chief Whip, and was, until recently, President of the Senate.

The source goes on to state that the Presidential Residence's frustration with Tamboli comes down to, in their view, the Leader's incompetence in pursuing the President's agenda, including cabinet nominees (Tamboli has created controversy by blocking Minority Leader David Bloom's efforts to reform the nominee confirmation process), and Krishnan's belief that the Senate should work closely together with the office of the President, a view which Tamboli sharply rejects. The President also feels that the Civic Union's disastrous performance in constituency elections, an occurrence that has been blamed by and large on Tamboli, where the party only won a single seat, shouldn't go unnoticed. The President credits her own electoral landslide at the polls for the party retaining list seats and the majority. The President's staff became increasingly frustrated over what they saw as the party's failure to utilize Krishnan's popularity during the campaign. They believe that, had the two campaigns been integrated, with a strong link between the presidential movement and the parliamentary party, something Tamboli has opposed, the party could have performed considerably better. Tamboli's failure to actively campaign until the very last days, immortalized by the "Ravioli, ravioli, where is Tamboli?" attack ad, contributed towards the Civic Union's defeat in all but one constituency by David Bloom and Alexios Veil's RGA electoral machine. One presidential staffer remarked that "the lack of Tamboli probably did more good than damage".

Though both Krishnan and Tamboli are generally thought to originate from the moderate wing of the Civic Union, ideological differences do factor into the disunion.
Tamboli has sparked outrage on the left by appearing frequently on the talk radio show Betabart. Betabart has been described as an alt-right publication and "less reliable than Vishal Vig". The organization has been accused of being Islamophobic, anti-Semitic, racist, sexist, and fake news. The President, who is a Muslim, feels that Betabart interviews only exacerbate the situation. Additionally, Krishnan and Tamboli seem to have strong disagreements about the nature of the judiciary. The President believes that Tamboli is trying to stack the judiciary with ideologues, and she is reportedly vetoing the Majority Leader's choices for upcoming judgeships. The President has yet to inform the Majority Leader of this. It is a strongly held belief of Krishnan that the executive and the legislature should be tightly linked, but that the judiciary must be as separate and independent as possible.

When further asked about the President's staff's outreach to the controversial Emmanuel Carvallo, a hated figure on the left, the source volunteered that one of the conditions for the President supporting him in a bid against Tamboli was Carvallo agreeing not to run against Krishnan in future presidential primaries, something he has done previously. The appointment of Carvallo's partner, Patricio Magrina, as Health and Labour Secretary, an appointment that Tamboli's office reportedly attempted to block, was a sign of good faith between the Presidential Residence and Carvallo. The plan has been complicated by the presence of a Tamboli loyalist in the President's ranks: Navin Tamboli, the Majority Leader's eldest son and Krishnan's Chief of Staff. The appointment has been panned by watchdogs as an example of nepotism, and has been compared to Jared Kushner's role in the Trump White House. The Chief of Staff was implanted by the Majority Leader's office, and has become increasingly isolated within the administration. It is rumored that former FNN reporter and Press Secretary Golf Blitzen is being lined up as a replacement. When asked whether Tamboli had a strong enough following in the Civic Union to survive a challenge from the right by Carvallo, the source said "The President believes the supporters that propelled her to the Presidency and the supporters of Carvallo are enough to topple Tamboli, though it will be a close contest". Whether this expected disunion will come to past is unknown, but the future and legacy of both Indira Tamboli and Priscilla Krishnan may be determined very soon. Or at least that's what we heard, through the Grapevine.

BREAKING NEWS: President Krishnan's Cabinet | FNN Exclusive
Wake Snapper, Fernão News Network | May 26 2017

Image
President Krishnan in her office


- (Fortaleza, Fernão) FNN has gained an exclusive first look at President Priscilla Krishnan's Cabinet nominees. The nominations include several figures from the previous Vishal Vig Administration, such as Secretary of Defence Sunil Panehal, Attorney-General Mohammad Al-Ghamdi, Secretary of Education and Community Affairs Aurélia Eva Santos Rodrigues, and Secretary of Culture and Equality Valentina Góes. The prospective Cabinet of Fernão's first female president is notably egalitarian, with at least four women among the nominated Secretaries.

The list of nominees does not include a member of the opposition party, the Red-Green Alliance, as President Vishal Vig's Cabinet did (AG Al-Ghamdi). However, prospective Secretary of Foreign Affairs Allison Ricardo served as Ambassador to the United States during the Vig Administration, and is known to have voted for both Vig and Jayesh Gadhavi in past presidential elections. The nomination of the right-wing Patricio Magrina as Secretary of Health and Labour could potentially cause considerable controversy, and is expected to be strongly opposed by the General Union of Workers and other Fernoan labour unions.

We are also proud to congratulate Golf Blitzen, who is an irreplaceable member of the FNN family, on his selection as Press Secretary to the President. Good luck, Golf!

BREAKING NEWS: Report ― Beto Goncalves frustrated over misspelling of name
Alexander Gouda, Fernão News Network | May 23 2017

Beta Gonclaves joins in the work at a farm in the North of Fernão while campaigning


- (Fortaleza, Fernão) Despite just being elected Vice President of Fernão, Beta Goncalevs is not happy. According to an exclusive FNN report, Betã has become frustrated over the frequent misspelling of his name. Betã Goncalvse is the founder and leader of the Coalisão de Trabalhadores e Agricultores (Coalition of Workers and Farmers), a centrist populist party especially strong in rural Ferdinand. The Coalition has, somewhat controversially, partnered with the conservative Civic Union, with Conslaves serving as CU nominee Priscilla Krishnan's running mate.

A Gonathan aide spoke with us about the Vice President on the condition of anonymity. The aide expressed their concern for Googlaves, saying "The Senator has become increasingly angry about his name being misspelled. Even us, his own staff, do it far more often than we'd like to admit. One time I spelled it as 'Bae Gonorrhea'. I was so embarrassed! Sometimes I wish he had a simpler name. Something like 'David Bloom' or 'Bob Dole'. Anyway, you'd better spell his name right when you write your article!"

Here at FNN we'd never misspell Buddha Gonzaga.

KRISHNAN ELECTED PRESIDENT BY A WIDE MARGIN
Carries Narrow Senate Majority; Urban Middle Class Proves Polls Right
Macro Robot, Elections Team | May 23 2017

Krishnan celebrates at the Civics for Sarkar Association as news arrives that Vice President Ghadavi conceded.



ABKHIBAR — Riding a large turnout from Fernão's urban middle class, Senator Priscilla Krishnan was declared President of Fernão in a landslide early Tuesday morning, giving her a mandate to begin a new chapter in Fernão's history and open the nation's ailing economy to global investors. Krishnan is the first woman to lead Fernão in its known history.

Of the 12 million votes cast, the Elections Commission said, Ms. Krishnan won 7 million (or 59.18 percent), soundly defeating her opponent, Vice President Jayesh Gadhavi, who received 5 million votes (40.82 percent). Gadhavi conceded after results across Ferdinand started to come in, with ballots still being counted in the state of New Guernsey.

Turnout was heavy, with more than 74 percent of Fernão's 15.2 million voters casting ballots. Krishnan won handily in Sarkar with almost 66% of the vote, while in New Guernsey she picked up a low of 46%. Voters in urban areas, long predicted to vote for Krishnan, turned out in droves for the Civic Union leader, while her running mate, Beto Gonclaves of the CTA, pulled rural support from the Red-Green ticket.

Despite the healthy margin of victory, Ms. Krishnan will face considerable headwinds from both within and outside of the government. With confidence in public safety at an all time low since the 1990s, the president-elect will be expected to work with a narrow coalition majority to restore confidence in the government after President Vig's resignation late in his term.

"I am voting for Krishnan because she is a seyed," said Fazlolah Bahriye, using the honorific given to those believed to be descendants of the Prophet Muhammad. Mr. Bahriye, a citizen of Fernão living in Iran, offered a diatribe against politicians, saying that they promised many things but never delivered.

Other voters, especially younger ones, said they favored Ms. Krishnan for simpler reasons. "I want more personal freedom, a new beginning for our country," said Alsafyr Njil, 19. "I just want to live a normal life."

President Krishnan was sworn in Tuesday morning.

Shim Seo-yon gives final campaign speech
Claudia Brie, Fernão News Network | May 17 2017

Image

Shim Seo-yon has been bolstered by the endorsement of the GUW





Shim Seo-yon was out in the streets again today, the current Secretary of Public Works was spotted meeting with local citizens at a local festival in the regional capital that was established following the civil war. After attending several events, listening to the concerns of local citizens and handing out a series of awards to the local scouting company Shim Seo-yon also visited a nearby town hall and gave a speech to assembled supporters and nearby members of the public.

My fellow citizens,

As you know I have fought for workers rights since entering the political field, and as Secretary of Public Works, I have created legislation that would not only restore this nation's electrical infrastructure but would also create tens of thousands of long-term well-paid jobs in multiple sectors of the economy. It is one of the reasons that I am so proud to announce that I have received the official endorsement of the General Union of Workers.

In addition to the FEIA I also want to see the introduction of a strong living wage, the establishment of a single-payer healthcare system, the strengthening of workers rights and the implementation of a progressive taxation system that will ensure that the wealth of this nation is distributed fairly and not concentrated in the hands of the one percent. As Secretary of Public Works I have also recently announced the introduction of a new policy called the Fernoan Affordable Housing Act, this legislation has the established goal of ensuring that every citizen should be able to purchase or rent a home in the future and of course it will create valuable long-term employment opportunities in the construction and maintenance sectors of our economy.

In short a vote for the Red-Green Alliance is a vote for full employment, economic equality and a strong middle class!

BREAKING NEWS: David Bloom campaigns for former Chief Whip Raghav Kshatriya
Alexander Gouda, Fernão News Network | May 17 2017

(Image)
David Bloom gesticulating


- (Fortaleza, Fernão) David Bloom, Senate Minority Leader and RGA Parliamentary Leader, is holding a massive rally for Raghav Kshatriya. Kshatriya was the Red-Green Alliance's Chief Whip during the the early days of the Fernoan Republic. Kshatriya is the only candidate so far that Bloom has specifically campaigned for, other than himself.

Kshatriya's term as Chief Whip was highly controversial among many Red-Green Senators, but he was generally considered an ally of Bloom. Despite Kshatriya having taken a much less active role in the party since stepping down as Whip, Bloom and him remain close friends. FNN has discovered that, according to subway and train use statistics, Bloom's rally for Kshatriya is the largest of the entire election campaign, excluding those held by the presidential candidates.

Kshatriya is currently locked in a tight race with Raj Jindal of the Civic Union. FNN polls have indicated that Jindal is currently the slight favorite.


Some Admins we have.

BREAKING NEWS: Draven Aldean marches through middle income neighborhoods
Billy Rily, Fernão News Network | May 17 2017

As of now, Draven Aldean, Senate hopeful, is marching with a decent size group of people through neighborhoods in his electoral district. It seems the people are shouting, "Change, Prosperity, Aldean!" I asked Aldean about this and his response was:

"People are tired of being oppressed by taxes. People want to keep their guns. People here want change for the better which is what I'll give them."

A pretty solid response. They are currently trying to hit every neighborhood and lead them to polling stations. Let's see if this works.

BREAKING NEWS: Red-Green Alliance ramps up effort in competitive elections
Alexander Gouda, Fernão News Network | May 17 2017

- (Fortaleza, Fernão) The Red-Green Alliance has ramped up its efforts in several elections it considers to be competitive. Additional staffers have been sent to assist RGA candidates in FD-2, FD-4, NG-1, SA-1, SA-2, SA-7, and Maabara At-Large.

Top FNN reporter Wake Snapper caught up with Alison Shapiro-Ricardo, chair of the Alliance Campaign Committee (ACC), to ask her about the Red-Green Alliance's increased efforts in these districts. Shapiro-Ricardo had this to say, "Well these districts are among the most competitive in the country. We've sent additional staffers, between ten and fifteen, to them to provide as much support as we can. All of this was pretty obvious, though. It's almost like you only interviewed me as fluff."

How ridiculous, Alison.
