2020 Palmyrian Federal Election [MT|Serious|Politics]

Postby Palmyrion » Tue Jun 09, 2020 9:21 am

Palmyrion Presents...
THE 2020 PALMYRIAN FEDERAL ELECTION

Draining the swamp, or damming the marshes?


On 15 July 2020, Palmyrion will hold the 2020 Federal Election, which takes place every five years. The people of the Royal Commonwealth will elect a Chancellor and its roster of Members of Parliament for the term 2020-2025, having heralded the end of the term 2015-2020. As per the 2000 Commonwealth Charter, the incumbent Chancellor will be ineligible for re-election to another consecutive term, though they can run for a second (and last) non-consecutive term for the term 2025-2030.

Evelyn Sta. Ana
Image

Party: Social Democratic Party
Platform: Social democratic economics; social libertarianism and progressivism; pacifism


Sta. Ana is the youngest candidate for Chancellor the Royal Commonwealth - the entire history of Palmyrion - has seen, running for Chancellor at the relatively young age of 35 - but she is wise beyond her years, brought about by single motherhood and a drive to finish her Ph.D. in Economics (majoring in Sociology) from Palmyrion's most prestigious university, the University of Palmyrion Aragon, with her membership in and subsequent rise to leadership of the Social Democratic Party repeatedly testing and refining her expertise as a public servant. While her most scathing critics criticise her past life and her being a single mother, Sta. Ana regularly brushes them off and has her credentials and achievements to speak for themselves, having led the SDP's efforts to rebuild basic public services and utilities in Palmyrion's war torn regions after the Palmyrian Troubles (2009-2018).


Ricardo Duterte
Image
Party: Commonwealth Action Party
Platform: Social libertarianism and progressivism, social democratic economics, militarism


Duterte is a former general of the Palmyrian military, running for the position of Chancellor at the age of 70. Born on 1950, he has first served in the Stalinist regime's military, joining its officer corps at the age of 20 and serving the Stalinist regime before defecting to the Commonwealth Counter-Revolutionary Front on 1975. After the Counter-Revolutionary War he continued his service in the Palmyrian military, during which he rose through the ranks of the Army, landing a position as a Brigadier General on 2000 before retiring at the age of 60 as a Major General. Indeed, how he led the 101st Armour Brigade, perhaps the Army's most prestigious military unit, in counter-insurgency operations against Stalinist remnants and, later, their successors from 1990-2010 are meritable, to include his model of civil-military operations becoming the standard all across the AFP. His wife died back in 2005, but not before having reared 3 children into adulthood, all of whom are serving in the Army as commissioned officers.


Eustace Macalintal
Image

Party: Communist Party of Palmyrion
Platform: Socialism, left-wing populism, social traditionalism


"Capitalism thrives on excesses and profits off moral degradation" has always been Macalintal's stance as a socialist; for him, capitalism and liberal democracy have gone hand-in-hand to profit off society's moral collapse and economic inequality in service of only for the few. Having fought in the side of the Stalinists and miraculously survived to obtain a pardon from the Stalinist regime's successor, Macalintal's resolve to bring Palmyrion back to its Stalinist glory and free it from capitalism has only hardened - and the various accusations of conspiracy with rebellion (a form of high treason according to Palmyrion) have only strengthened it further.


Romy Perez
Image

Party: Synarchist Party of Palmyrion
Platform: Fourth-Position Politics, Neo-Fascism, Right-Wing Populist Nationalism, Synarchist economics


Romy Perez was never a fan of liberal democracy from the start. He believed that liberal democracy only led to moral downfall and eventual societal collapse - and Palmyrion's recent troubles may provide credence to his beliefs. Born on 1968, Perez graduated from the University of Palmyrion Aragon on 1990 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy, before taking up law school at the same institution and finishing law on 1994; his experience meting out the law has led him to believe that liberal democracy is inefficient in handing out the law, feeding to the fascist underpinnings of his politics. A fan of Aleksandr Dugin, he believed that only fascism can retain societal order and progress in line and in check according to the principles of common law and natural law.


Harold Bragancia
Image

Party: Christian Democratic Party
Platform: Christian democracy, Christian traditionalism and social teaching, distributist economics


Pastor Bragancia was raised in a deeply religious Roman Catholic family and community in suburban Palmyrion, his life having revolved deeply around Catholic social teaching. Bragancia lived much of his life as a sacristan before he became an ordained priest at the age of 30 on 1998, and took an oath of chastity as part of his priestly duties - and the Troubles from 2009 to 2018 served as a watershed event that shaped his political ambitions and views of a Palmyrion ruled by a Christian democracy, with its laws and core economic policies adhering to Christian traditionalist social teaching and distributism, respectively.


Ahmad al-Hiwari
Image

Party: Commonwealth Muslim Democratic Party
Platform: Islamic democracy, Islamic traditionalism and social teaching, Islamic economic jurisprudence (fiqh al-mu'amalat)


Imam al-Hiwari was born to and raised in a Muslim family and community in the island of Sultan Osmalik, raised by a high middle-class imam of a local mosque. His educational attainment revolved mainly around primary and secondary level madrasas in his town of birth, with his tertiary education being at the local campus of the University of Palmyrion. He graduated with a BA in Sociology, majoring in Islamic Sociology; he would then see the Troubles as a watershed event when the Palmyrian Khalifati Front rebelled in the southern islands of Mindanao and Sultan Osmalik, as it shaped his ideals of an Islamic society adhering to Islamic social teaching and economic jurisprudence.

CAP, SDP Dominate Pre-Election Polls
Gerald Valencia | 10 June 2020 1:34PM PST

  • CAP coming first at 31%, with SDP following closely at 29%
  • CDP at third, CMDP at a distant fourth
  • SPP and CPP at fifth and sixth, respectively



PALMYRION | The results of the first pre-election poll, conducted last week from 01 - 05 June 2020 by social research institution Union Pulse, have been released this morning of June 10, 2020, following a week-long anticipation of the survey results by the electorate.

According to the survey on voter preferences which had 2,048,256 respondents in total, 31% of the surveyed voters preferred voting for the Commonwealth Action Party (CAP; Partido Aksyong Mankomunidad), with 29% preferring the Social Democratic Party (SDP; Partido Sosyo-Demokratiko). The Christian Democratic Party (CDP) and the Commonwealth Muslim Democratic Party (CMDP) had voter preferences of 21% and 10%, respectively, while the Synarchist Party of Palmyrion (SPP) and the Communist Party of Palmyrion (CPP) had voter preferences of 8% and 1%, respectively.

This was also reflected in their choice of Chancellor: CAP candidate MGEN Ricardo Duterte (RET) PA came first in voters' preference, while Evelyn Sta. Ana of the SDP followed a close second, with Harold Bragancia of the CDP coming third, Ahmad al-Hiwari of the CMDP coming fourth, and the SPP's Romy Perez and CPP's Eustace Macalintal both coming a distant fifth and sixth, respectively.

Palmyrion is set to elect its Chancellor and roster of Members of Parliament by 15 July 2020.

Duterte: Boost Military Strength to 10 Million
Victor Kalimantan | 12 June 2020 9:08AM PST

  • MGEN Ricardo Duterte (RET) PA wants military strength boosted to 10 million
  • Retired general is running for the position of Chancellor with a militarist platform
  • The Armed Forces of Palmyrion currently stands at 6,400,000 personnel



Image
The AFP currently stands at 6.4 million, but Chancellor candidate Ricardo Duterte wants to boost it to 10 million as part of his militarist policy.


DAVAO CITY, PROVINCE OF DAVAO | Retired major general and candidate for Chancellor Ricardo Duterte posted in Accelafeed that, as part of his militarist platform, he intends to boost the AFP's numerical strength to 10 million personnel.

This is in line with his militarist policy in his candidacy for Chancellor in the incoming 2020 Palmyrian Federal Elections as the party leader of the Commonwealth Action Party, with a stance on social libertarianism, social democratic economics, and a militaristic policy in contrast with close runner-up Social Democratic Party's pacifist policy.

The Armed Forces Palmyrion currently stands at 6.4 million personnel, and is undergoing a major wave of modernisation and reorganisation in light of the 2008-2010 Fortaleza Reforms and the Turbulent Tens Conflict which lasted from 2009 to 2018. Additionally the Royal Commonwealth is seeking a more visible geopolitical standing in Greater Dienstad, particularly in the western region, through a policy of "mutually benevolent intervention".

However, with economic recovery and revitalisation programmes and projects going underway in the war-torn federal subjects of the Republics of Cagayan, Ilocos, the Cordilleras, and the Sultanates of Osmalik and Mindanao, concerns around the militarist policy of Duterte as candidate for Chancellor are fueled by the potential that Duterte might even neglect these socio-economic recovery programmes. The Honourable Evelyn Sta Ana, SDP candidate for Chancellor, expressed her concerns in a quote-retweet of Duterte's original tweet.

While the Royal Commonwealth must maintain a strong standing military, a policy of militarism may mean neglect of socio-economic recovery programmes and initiatives in the areas torn by the Turbulent Tens Conflict.#2020PalmyrianElections

The mentioned federal subjects were most affected by the Turbulent Tens Conflict, having been the main warzones and flashpoints conquered by the Communist and Jihadist forces. Of the 2020 national budget's components, almost PRR 25 trillion ($500 billion) was devoted solely to post-war recovery, revitalisation, and development of both areas, disbursed to various departments and sectors of the Palmyrian cabinet. This is an increase of PRP 5 trillion ($100 billion) compared to the start of the Post-War Recovery, Revitalisation, and Development Programme on 2019. Duterte has yet to comment and answer on the concerns which are now shared by many Palmyrian Accelafeed users aside from Sta. Ana.

Stephen Izaz, Mokastana News Network! Can you clarify the difference between the candidates from the Commonwealth Action Party and the Social Democratic Party? They both seem to be strongly in favor of Social democratic economics, social libertarianism, and progressivism. The only significant difference seems to be pacifism vs militarism. Can both candidates clarify their stance on military power, and highlight any other significant differences between their goals?

"Both parties may share the same ideologies when it comes to social democratic economics and libertarianism, but in many issues they differ in approach. The SDP has a more interventionist hands-on role, while the CAP is more laissez-faire."
—Evelyn Sta. Ana


"For example, in the issue of reconstructing after the Turbulent Tens Conflict, while the SDP - no offence here to our honourable counterparts in the SDP - may take a development-centred approach to terrorism and insurgency, the CAP has taken a more aggressive, military-centred proactive approach to terrorism and stabilisation in the federal subjects affected by the Turbulent Tens Conflict. On the issue of economic development and social progressivism, the SDP has a more interventionist and proactive approach, while the CAP has a more laissez-faire approach, though social democratic economics and social libertarianism provide the base framework for their approaches."
—Ricardo Duterte

"Trade and commerce is the lifeblood of the Palmyrian nation-state. All parties agree on that. Palmyrion seeks to defend its trade routes, and regional instability is bad for business. CAP wants a more proactive approach on regional stabilisation and a more aggressive stance on Palmyrion's major regional rivals, especially the Ordenite Reich and the Ralkovian Empire."
—Ricardo Duterte


"The SDP doesn't want Palmyrion to get tied up in a stabilisation campaign in foreign lands, and it also seeks to normalise relations with countries with which Palmyrion has, so to say, bad blood with."
