Roose brings up an interesting point. The Esperanto resolution is not mutually exclusive with the other two resolutions. It probably should’ve had its own aye/nay vote. It’s too late for that though, I suppose.


This does raise an interesting point. When I was assembling this, I somehow missed your edit. I'll bring it up to the other admins and see what they think.

For the record, I don’t think the vote should be redone or anything. It’s a rather minor, technical mistake.

I'm done with my character:
Gökhan Türker - Constitutional Liberal Party
Image

Account Name: Improved Werpland
Occupation: Senator

Party Position(s):
ex provisional chair, deputy chair

Positions in Government:
none

Constituency: Anavatanköy
Political Ideology: Social Liberalism, Pro-Europeanism, Gökhanism

Family: Wife (divorced): Selma Zeybek, Son: Cem
Background: Gökhan is, without a doubt, the veteran activist of the Turkish community of G-stan. He was born in 1956 to a family of Turkish bourgeouis farmers, forced to nominally Hellenize themselves in order to avoid the seizure of their hard-earned property by the chauvinistic Galatean regime. Determined to end the oppression of his people, Gökhan turned to ultranationalism. In 1980 he founded the Self-Defence Committee of Muslim National-Patriots, a right-wing organization with the goal of creating a culturally Muslim state separate of G-stan. His attempt failed, and Gökhan was thrown into jail for life. While behind bars he went on a hunger strike, but instead of considering it an ordeal, he rather liked it. "Not eating food for a while helped cleanse my body and mind" Gökhan once remarked in an interview with Caleb Maupin of PressTV. Along with this new diet Gökhan became extremely liberal and began to realize the struggle of Turks in G-stan was really a struggle "for dignity and equal rights within a neutral and just state." In 1990 he was released in an amnesty measure taken by the illegitimate regime. Six years later he joined the Constitutional Liberal Party and became a leading activist of the party during its resurgence in the 90's and 00's. From 2012 to 2018 he was the mayor of Anavatanköy (or "motherland village") the nexus of the small Turkish community of Galatea.
