Lesvans vote in the presidential election

Lesvan voters have gone to the polls to cast ballots in the presidential election


Image


The national Lesvan legislature that is the Carto could not have picked a more interesting day for debating the “agitation law”, although it might seem like it makes sense to pick today of all days. For today is the Lesvan presidential election. The campaign is formally wrapped up and Lesvan voters have gone to the polls to cast their vote for a favorite candidate. At the same time, because of the flexibility of the aforementioned “agitation law”, the campaign has not entirely ended. The candidates, their campaigns and supporters are still making last minute calls to vote for their candidate. Some are even still demonstrating near the polling stations, where Lesvans have gone to, although it is not limited to one candidate’s agitation per polling station.

Analysts and observers say that despite all the controversy, President Puicu Gevin has a chance for re-election despite his opponents and some experts already “burying him.” According to some, it is too early to do that. Others insist that the president’s opponents have a much better chance to outdo him entirely and that Lesva will end up with a new president or at least end up as close-call runner-ups to the incumbent head of state or even perform much better in the future parliamentary and local elections. At today’s parliamentary session, Speaker of the Carto Atsac Colecta wished luck to incumbent President Puicu Gevin as he is running as the governing coalition candidate instead of every party having their own candidate. The New Order (NO) party, the party of Speaker Atsac Colecta and a party that is the coalition partner to the Union of Libertarians and Nationalists (ULN), which President Puicu Gevin is from, does not have a separate candidate in the election this time around.

According to the current rules, if no candidate accumulates more than 50% of the vote, the election will head into the second round or a run-off. Candidates in the first and second places will be the only ones left in the race, while the rest will only have a chance to endorse either one of the 2 candidates. This year, there have been no predictions made on what the turnout might be.

President Puicu Gevin re-elected with 54%: Result disputed and fraud accusations made

Lesva has its’ first contested election in modern history, with 54% assigned to incumbent President Puicu Gevin, making a run-off unneeded


Image


Okay…so if you are just joining us now, we are discussing the result of the presidential election. Yes, you heard us right. Supreme Electoral Court of Lesva has released the final results of the presidential election already. Incumbent President Puicu Gevin has been re-elected with 54% of the vote. The incumbent head of state has claimed victory in the first round and there will be no run-off. According to early reactions, this is to much surprise to all Lesvans because everybody has expected to wake up this morning and hear what they usually hear in every presidential election. Voters expected to only hear the results of the first round, while a run-off would be declared, as usual. However, that is not the case. The Supreme Electoral Court says that this is, indeed, the final result of the presidential election and there will be no second round or run-off. For the first time in modern history, the president has been elected or in this case re-elected in a single round.

This is an unprecedented case in many ways. Now other things are happening that the land of Lesva has not seen in a long time. The opposition and other candidates in the presidential race, are calling out the Supreme Electoral Court of Lesva and the administration of President Puicu Gevin with accusations of irregularities in the election and are calling for a recount. Because of how unusual this situation is, nobody is ready to claim purposeful electoral fraud just yet and many retain the theory that there may have been a mistake made. However, it also appears that all major players are ready for either scenario. The president’s election opponents and opposition politicians say that they are ready to call upon their electorate to go out to the streets and defend their votes, if the demand for a recount is not met.

President Puicu Gevin has yet to appear before his supporters and claim victory. The same goes for his opponents, who have yet to congratulate the president on his re-election and concede. The situation in Lesva is “up in the air” right now and many are waiting for answers from the Supreme Electoral Court of Lesva to explain what has happened today and if Lesva has indeed encountered intentional electoral fraud or a mistake was made.

Citizens rise up against electoral fraud

Election opponents of incumbent President Puicu Gevin and opposition politicians take people to the streets over the disputed presidential election result

A crowd flashes lights in a civil demonstration against electoral fraud, Saela, Lesva


Opponents of incumbent President Puicu Gevin in the presidential election and opposition politicians have led Lesvan voters out into the streets. The people have been called upon to protest electoral fraud. The epicenter of this is the capital city of Lesva – Saela, while the anti-fraud street activity is spreading to other cities and towns as well. The demand is to have the votes recounted or cancelled and having a re-vote for more accuracy. The calls are being made towards the Supreme Electoral Court of Lesva and the administration of President Puicu Gevin first and foremost.

The parliament has been split in half because of the current situation. The split has happened along the lines of the governing coalition and the opposition. The governing coalition is currently keeping silence on accusations that there was electoral fraud present in the Lesvan presidential election. The opposition, on the other hand, has broken away and supports a civil uprising against electoral fraud. They are calling on Lesvan citizens to take to the streets and for as many people to go out as possible.

Deadliest Winter Storm in a Decade Devastates Domanania


Image


Last week, the largest winter storm of the season slammed into the north of the country. It caused snow fall in excess of 30mm in certain parts of the country, breaking seasonal records.

This snow storm was unprecedented in its strength for this late into the cold season. Monitoring its progress from the north, snowfall was expected to be within 15-20mm in certain areas, with an average of 13mm. Two days before the storm made landfall, estimates jumped to 25mm. All estimations were shattered when in the first day of the storm, areas experienced 20mm in 24hrs. The second and third days evened out with an average of 20mm across most of the country, with areas close to the mountains experiencing upwards of 30mm.

The storm petered out after 5 days, causing record snowfall. However, parts of the country were ravaged by black outs and burst water pipes in several communities. In particular, poorer communities were hit hard. Several neighborhoods had their electricity cut, and their water shut off. An estimated 3 million people were without heat or water for 7 days before repair crews were able to get generators to the affected regions. Initial reports following the storm passing found that around 250 people died due to the freezing temperatures, but estimates on the 20th were around 1,500 people. This makes the storm the deadliest one in the last 10 years.

Affected communities aren't expected to have full electricity and water restored until April. Congress passed an emergency resolution to enact the Military Emergency Disaster Act (MEDA). This means sending the 2nd Army Reserve Engineers Brigade to clear roads for other emergency personnel, and to set up relief stations to provide food and supplies. The engineers will be deployed until the 10th of April before handing off relief facilities and efforts to local governments.

Weather in Arnton, WL today: - Cloudy, 18C/5C




DOMESTIC: Judicial Council makes way for Indenats trial

ARNTON (AN) - At a press conference this morning, Judicial-General Ander Kentarre announced that a full Court of the Judicial Council - a total of nine Judicial Councillors would hear a case concerning revelations surrounding alleged connections of Ainslie’s third largest political party - the Independent Nationalists Party - to a number of nefarious entities such as the Discipleship of the End and the Brothers of the Nigh Times, collectively known as the Ahnslen doomsday cults. The trial is expected to begin in a week and is set to have major ramifications for politics in Ainslie.

Following weeks of investigations and raids, the Advocate-General submitted an application to the Judicial Council in order for the case to bypass the Collective Court and go straight to the highest court in Ainslie. The application meeting, which was heard by three of the Councillors, took two hours.

Kentarre today outlined what people are likely to see in the case ahead.

“This will no doubt be a major case. What we are talking here is a public examination of a political party which has attracted controversy over recent years. This is what we should be expecting to see over the coming weeks.

It is my understanding that the Council is interested in three main points.

Firstly, they want to see whether Mr. Jackson’s acts as leader of the party is connected to the party as an institution or if the two have been effectively separated.

Secondly, they want to determine whether the party has significant links to the cults.

Thirdly, they want to want to examine the potential penalties available to individuals or parties which commit the acts which are alleged regardless of Jackson or the party’s guilt.

It is expected that the Advocate-General will be arguing that both Jackson and the Independent Nationalists Party have committed a number of criminal acts such as drug trafficking, terrorism and ultimately treason. I am not privy to the plans of the lawyers on the other side, however it is likely that they will look to the various parts of each offence and try and prove that this would be an overextension of the court’s discretion to render him guilty.”

He then continued to talk about technicalities of the case ahead before giving a warning to Ahnslens for the times ahead.

“What you will be hearing over the next few weeks are acts which are deeply troubling that are being alleged to have been done by people who are meant to represent your best interests and who additionally hold the balance of control in an electorate in Ainslie.

Now is not the time for division. We must look upon the times ahead with maturity and clarity of thought - now is not the time to blame the people who voted for the party nor paint the Council or those against the party as bringing a political attack against them.

The fact of the matter is that the Advocate-General is confident that there is enough evidence that a crime has taken place here. That allegation must be pursued, especially when it concerns those who participate in lawmaking and have a duty to you.”

The Independent Nationalists Party has not offered an official statement. However, the now former leader of the party, Lawrence Jackson offered an address to the people from the capital of Balnik, Rustov. In it he strongly condemned the actions of the Government and decried the move as a ‘political hitjob’, extending to claims that the Federal Government planted evidence on the Party and that he had to leave Ainslie for a country without an extradition treaty with the Unified Electorates to protect himself from ‘unjust action’ against him.

As stated before, it is not clear what the penalties will be. Early commentators from the various law schools around the country have cited the case as ‘novel’ and ‘unchartered’ territory for the legal system. Whilst conventional penalties such as imprisonment and monetary penalties may be on the table, the Centre for Legal Development suggests that what may be seen here is the barring of elected officials and potentially the deregistering of the party itself. This in turn would raise questions about just how much power the Judicial Council has from the Constitution and whether the banning of a political party, if it was to be decided upon, is indeed legal or is in fact illegal interference into the role and the jobs of democratically elected officials.



DOMESTIC: 'Maximum working temperature' laws repealed

ARNTON (AN) - The Assembly this morning repealed the Industrial Relations (Ahnslen Maximum Operations Temperature) Amendment Act 2017 which allowed workers to sue employers if they forced them to work over a specified temperature. The repeal amendment was passed by an almost unanimous margin, with every member from the two major political parties, ACEGAD and Ahnited, supporting the bill. The change back to the old law surrounding temperatures and working conditions has been met with wide support from the legal community and from employers associations, whilst trade unions and other employee groups welcomed the move but stressed that a better course could have been taken other than a simple repeal.

The repeal of the amendment marks another event where the Gifford administration has rolled back some of the more controversial aspects of the popular Kenzai administration’s decisions surrounding the law.

Whilst there was support both from ACEGAD and Ahnited for the move, in debates over the past week the minority party was much harsher in its rhetoric around the law. Whilst Arendai can confirm that the Prime Minister will not be holding a conference about the repeal, the minority leader has already given his remarks about the events of this morning.

Mr Carralen simply described the law as “misguided”, “stupid” and clearly “rushed” and looks forward to working with ACEGAD to develop a better law if that’s their intention. No such sentiment has been made public by the majority party.

As a result of the repeal, workers now must rely on the law of negligence and the conditions in their employment contracts and other agreements for protection from being forced to work in unhealthy temperatures.

The Judicial-General welcomed the return to this patchwork of law, explaining that the repeal was an important step back towards allowing courts to effectively navigate laws surrounding the rights of employees.

“This is a step towards protection and away from the uncertainty that has plagued the courts over the past four years with the small subsection of people who relied on these laws.”, Kentarre stated.

The Ahnslen Law Society, the peak body for lawyers and the legal profession in Ainslie expressed its ‘delight and relief at the removal of troublesome and problematic provisions’. On the other hand, the Ahnslen Trade Union Council were much more sober, noting that it is wary that this may be the start of a trend whereby workers rights begin to get wound back.

Former presidents demand answers from the current administration over electoral fraud allegations

Predecessors of President Puicu Gevin have collectively placed demands towards the current administration over electoral fraud allegations


Former presidents of the Republic of Lesva have signed a letter, which calls for answers from the administration of President Puicu Gevin for electoral fraud allegations in the presidential race, which have caused a civil uprising in Lesva this weekend. The letter is aimed at the presidential administration first and foremost and secondly at the Supreme Electoral Court of Lesva. The latter has received less scrutiny, because of the ex-presidents’ view that the administration holds more responsibility in this situation and can pressure the Supreme Electoral Court of Lesva if necessary. The letter has been signed by ex-presidents: Gera Tvarca, Eale Prada, Nai Gemas and Visa Saunu. All the ex-presidents, to have signed the letter, are predecessors of incumbent President Puicu Gevin. The only one from the recent presidents to not join the initiative, without much surprise, is former President Iodam Precin, who was President before the incumbent President Gevin, is a fellow party member of the incumbent president from the Union of Libertarians and Nationalists (ULN) party and had incumbent president serve as Prime Minister under President Precin. So far, the administration of President Puicu Gevin has yet to react to the citizen uprising and to the fresh address of several former presidents.

Lesvan civil disobedience lacks official leaders

Opposition parties and opponents of incumbent President Puicu Gevin do not assume leadership of the civil uprising against electoral fraud in Lesva


Lesvans have begun going out into the streets since Saturday. They did so as part of their own reactions to claims there has been electoral fraud in the presidential election and the unusual event of a controversial incumbent president having been re-elected to a second term from the first round, with 54%, when this has not happened in decades. There has always been a run-off, even with the candidates clearly outdoing all opponents in the polls. This time, the situation has been different. Lesvans themselves clearly know who they had voted for and their reactions to 54% for the incumbent president show that they do not “buy it.”

However, citizens have also gone out into the streets because of calls by opposition parties and opponents of President Puicu Gevin in the presidential election. Many assume that these politicians would do what they have to do and take over control of the civil uprising as leaders of it. Nevertheless, that is not happening. Lesvan opposition and parallel candidates are still too broken up internally themselves to unite into a single front against the alleged electoral fraud and lead this protest. Even if different parties are doing something, it is done separately. The people on the streets do not have anyone leading them. And now there is a question standing: will somebody take over leadership of the Lesvan public in this uprising against alleged electoral fraud or will the crowd be left to wonder aimlessly and improvise? Right now, the question is rhetorical, but many want to find out the answer.

Stay tuned in our coverage of the recent days and recent events in the Republic of Lesva, as we continue talking about the post-election crisis in the Republic of Lesva.

Can peaceful Lesvans achieve anything with a leaderless protest?

With lack of leaders in the Lesvan uprising, another question has arisen on whether peaceful Lesvan people can achieve anything with a peaceful revolt


Lesvans are revolting over alleged electoral fraud on their own. There are no formal leaders as has been established in the previous report. And that previous report asked the question whether an aimless crowd can achieve anything. But it is not just a question of leadership. Lesvans also considered themselves as peaceful people. There is not enough aggression stored inside and this situation being unprecedented has not created an experience or evolved a proper response mechanism to an alleged attempt to hold a fraudulent election and usurp power. A lot of hope is now aimed by the crowds not only at awaited leaders of the uprising, but also the state institutions, which have created a system of checks and balances to secure Lesva as a democracy. Lesvans are looking to the Supreme Court of Lesva to a larger extent than the Carto (legislature), where fellow party members of the current president along with coalition partners are holding a majority. Lesvans are only trying to orient themselves in the situation and are partially improvising on how to deal with what is happening.

Municipality of Saela deploys police

The Municipality of Saela has deployed police to the capital city Saela and the surrounding district to control the situation


Meanwhile, despite street gatherings and flash mobs across Lesva remaining peaceful, the capital city Saela, the arguable epicenter of the entire situation and the city hosting the Lesvan government, is already taking action. The Municipality of Saela has deployed police all across the municipality. The City Council of Saela and the city councils of nearby cities and towns are deploying police all across the municipality. Local officials are explaining this as a “precautionary measure” against any “unpredictability.” The masses of citizens, whom these forces have been deployed to deter, remain peaceful. Whether President Puicu Gevin had anything to personally do with this deployment remains unknown, because the head of state has remained unresponsive to the situation. Right now, observers expect that other municipalities in Lesva will follow through with Saela’s actions in the following days.

Supreme Court of Lesva looked at for a verdict on the current situation with the election

Civil revolt against alleged electoral fraud keeps pressuring the Supreme Court to issue a verdict on the current situation in Lesva


Image


The Supreme Court of Lesva remains a target for pressure from the civil revolt in Lesva, from the election opponents of the incumbent president, opposition parties and several former presidents. The Supreme Court is looked to for the determination of two things: determine whether the current situation is unconstitutional and offer legal ways out of it or, in case of a conclusion that there is electoral fraud, annul the election result. So far, the constitutional court remains silent, which has created suspicions it might be pressured by the administration of the president.

Other municipalities deploy police to the streets

As predicted, other municipalities of Lesva are following the example of the Municipality of Saela and are deploying police to the streets to control the situation with the revolting masses


As predicted yesterday, the city councils in other municipalities across Lesva are following the example of the municipality hosting the nation’s capital city Saela. Just like Saela is deploying police all over the municipality to control the situation with the populace, now other municipalities are doing the same, as the anti-fraud uprising is spreading across the Republic of Lesva. The peaceful character of the uprising means that there have been no recorded arrests made so far. The police are simply observing the situation and the behavior of the masses.

BREAKING NEWS

UPDATE/ALERT


Lesvan Army in the streets of capital city Saela: Who sent them?

The Armed Forces of Lesva have arrived in the capital city from nearby domestic deployment around the Municipality of Saela, raising questions who had sent the army and with what objectives


Image


As Lesva approaches a “school-night”, citizens in the capital city Saela are awakened to a tense surprise. The military of Lesva is on the streets of our nation’s capital. Tanks are rolling across the road, while remaining cars are staying out of their way. Alongside tanks, there are also military trucks and other armored vehicles rolling across the road. The sky above the city is ravaged by military helicopters doing scouting and securing the skies. It is unclear what they have come here for. Most likely they had been deployed from around the Municipality of Saela, where these forces were on domestic deployment. There is now a question about the military’s orders here and now in national capital Saela. Why is the military in the city? Did President Puicu Gevin deploy them to Saela to use the troops against revolting citizens? Something that only dictators do, unless the president wants to become a dictator by usurping the election? Right now the military seems to be heading in the directions of the Carto (legislature), the Presidential House, the Supreme Court and the Supreme Electoral Court. Most likely, the military is heading there to defend the buildings and state institutions from the Lesvan uprising despite how peaceful it has been.

Supreme Court of Lesva annuls presidential election result

The Supreme Court of Lesva has given in to the pressure of civil revolt against electoral fraud and has ruled in favor of annulling the election result


Image


This just in – the Supreme Court of Lesva has officially ruled to annul the disputed presidential election result. This has been done after pressure from peaceful civil unrest on Lesva’s streets, which demanded the Supreme Court’s response to the situation as the government branch protecting the constitution. The Chief Justices have heard Lesvans on the fourth day of protests, which many think is late, but also say that late is better than never. With the annulment of the presidential election results, the question now stands on what is going to happen now with the election? Will there be a re-vote authorized? The Supreme Court has yet to make a ruling on what comes next.

Chief of the General Staff General Pava Sari: “President Puicu Gevin has lost legitimacy and should no longer be considered head of state”

General Pava Sari, Chief of the General Staff of the Lesvan Armed Forces, claims President Puicu Gevin has lost legitimacy to be head of state after an attempt at usurping power


In other developing news, it is now becoming a little clearer on why the Lesvan Army has appeared on the streets of Saela and who sent them there. After tanks, armored vehicles and military helicopters appeared on the streets of Saela yesterday, many had speculated that President Puicu Gevin, as commander-in-chief, who still keeps his silence on the situation in the country, but may have jumped to a desperate attempt of using not just the police, but also the military to keep power against the uprising. However, it now seems the military appeared not by the president’s call.

General Pava Sari, Chief of the General Staff of the Lesvan Armed Forces, de facto and de jure leader and commanding officer of our country’s military in the field, has stated that President Puicu Gevin has lost his legitimacy. The General accused the president of usurping power and instituting the electoral fraud to keep himself in power illegally for a second term by faking election results. With these accusations made, it is now left to believe that General Sari has rebelled against the commander-in-chief and the administration of the president, having sent the troops into Saela by his order. Stay tuned, as we update our audience on what is happening.

UPDATE


President Puicu Gevin accuses the military of a coup against a democratic government

President Puicu Gevin finally reacts to the situation in Lesva publicly by accusing the military of a coup against him, threatens to declare a state of emergency


President Puicu Gevin has finally come out publicly with a reaction to the situation in the Republic of Lesva. The president has not spoken about the election, but he has called for calm in the country and accused the military of plotting a coup against him, basically initiating the coup already by appearing on the streets of the capital city Saela. The president called out Chief of the General Staff General Pava Sari for overextending authority, violating the constitution by defying the commander-in-chief, treason, coup plot and various other crimes. President Gevin threatened to have General Pava Sari removed from position and tried for crimes, while also threatening to declare a state of emergency in Lesva. However, the head of state did not comment or repent for electoral fraud allegations, civil uprising against it by Lesvan citizens, accusations of electoral fraud by his election opponents, opposition parties and others. Also, the president did not yet react to the ruling by the Supreme Court, which has annulled the election result.

Military declares the creation of the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) alternative provisional government

Under the leadership of General Pava Sari, Chief of the General Staff of the Lesvan Armed Forces, the military has declared the formation of the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) as alternative provisional government


General Pava Sari, Chief of the General Staff of the Lesvan Armed Forces, has declared the creation of the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) as an alternative provisional government under the military. ADP is a parallel to the current Lesvan government in its’ entirety, except possibly for the Supreme Court of Lesva. The administration of the President, the cabinet under Prime Minister and the Carto (legislature) have their authority challenged by the military-run (ADP). General Pava Sari has accused President Puicu Gevin, Prime Minister Pagala Ira, Speaker of the Carto Atsac Colecta, all ministers, lawmakers and government workers as “having lied to Lesvan people” and “having taken away Lesva’s old-aged traditional democracy, which has been on this island for a century”, practically making history and not in the good way. The military-run ADP has called on all aforementioned to step down and abandon their posts and institutions they work for. ADP will be taking over as a provisional government run by the military until a repeat presidential election is held and possibly even a snap parliamentary election being declared.

New Military Production Begins!


This week has been one filled with groundbreaking military announcements.

Earlier this year, in January, the navy announced its new budget and plans for the future. This included decommissioning several warships, as well as producing new ones. The details one some of these new ships were vague at first. On monday, the navy announced that construction has begun on the new ships. This includes the multinational project Type 14 Frigate, and the new domestic Trench Class Submarine, and Type 41 patrol boat. These ships will usher in a new age for Doman naval power.

In army news, the army announced it is beginning construction on Lot 3 of the Paladin MBT, which is supposed to have its main engine replaced with an all electric engine, retrofitted from electric buses. These vehicles will also be replacing older tanks still in service. This batch includes 100 vehicles, and is expected to finish construction by January of next year.

In the air force, the board announced it will discontinue the use of the T6-C Fighter Jet. This jet has been in service since the tail end of the civil war in 1963. It is the longest serving piece of military technology in the armed forces. A budget review found that it was no longer feasible to continue supporting such an old design along side the newer fighters being rolled out. The fighters currently in service will be decommissioned and either scrapped, sold to other nations, or used in live fire exercises. All T6-C jets will be phased out by 2023.

Parliament Closes

On the orders of President Breitbarth, Parliament has today been closed until after the upcoming Senate election. With the National Diet prorogued and the Senate dissolved, no legislation can be proposed by the government for the next 6 weeks, although they can still carry out the functions of government.

After 3 years, the 1st Senate of Biaten has been dissolved, with the country awaiting a 2nd Senate to be elected in May. 6 Senators will not be standing for re-election and so will be resigning from the Senate. The remaining 94, however, will, along with their parties, fight to keep their seats in the Senate. It is, however, unlikely that all 94 will hold their seats. In this election, we may witness a rebirth of the left-wing National Revolution Party or the Conservative Democratic Party as a result of the stronger momentum behind them in this election, which may be damaging to the Social Democratic Party and the Communist Party.

Chancellor Siegel begins Social Democratic Party’s campaign

Image

In Hachen today, Chancellor Dyson Siegel launched the Social Democratic Party’s campaign, alongside Foreign Minister and outgoing Senate President Carter Eldridge and the party’s choice to replace Eldridge as Senate President, Montgomery Waterman. The Chancellor addressed a crowd of approximately 1,000

“My fellow citizens, I come before you today to ask for your support as so we can work For a Better and Brighter Future and continue the project to turn this Republic into a utopia. Our goal is to bring about a steadily growing economy, a better society for all Biatenians and a strong, just and compassionate society, one where the handling of complex problems may be a source of pride to ourselves and an example to the world.

We believe that Biaten’s potential for improvement is enormous. Science, technology and the general growth of knowledge present great opportunities for social and economic advances. With planning, intelligence and effort, we can harness the new technologies and the powerful economic forces of our time. But with a return to the right-wing free-for-all, or the Communist nationalism that wishes to end the economic prosperity generated by our industries, we will remain forever stuck in a cycle of economic destruction.

We believe that society can now afford and must be ready to meet the basic needs of all its members. There should be decent housing for everyone, poor living conditions must be dealt with, and, with a projected increase in the number of immigrants to Biaten, immigrant ghettos must not be allowed to develop. There should be work for those who seek it, in the nation as a whole and in every region.

These are a few of the things that we wish to bring you in the foreseeable future. However, do not just take my word for it; I ask you all to look at our government’s record. Under our government, we have seen a gradual fall in homelessness, poverty and crime and we have increased the provision of welfare, especially to those who need it. We the Social Democratic Party worked to make this country a friendly place for the LGBT community and ethnic minorities through the legalisation of same-sex marriage and the passing of anti-discriminatory laws. I hope you will take all of this into account when you go to vote on the 6th of May.

But we are not finished with the business of government and improving the lives of our people, in fact we are far from it. We must make a rising standard of provision for those who, on account of age, sickness or other circumstances, are unable to provide for themselves. A compassionate society is one that does not withhold help for those in need.

It is our belief that all men and women are created equal with unalienable rights. Many of our opponents believe this too, but in the past the extension of human rights has had to wait for a left-wing government.

We believe that we have a duty to the future, to ensure that the Republic we leave to the next generation is not spoilt by our misuse or neglect of the environment. We must manage our lives and industries so that we do not spoil our land, our water, our beaches and the air we breathe with fumes, filth and waste. That is why my government will make it a high priority to join The Western Isles Climate Response Council within the next year, and work throughout this decade to bring us into compliance with the Kirsdoff Summit Agreement.

We are proud of the contribution that Biaten and its people have made to the welfare of mankind. With our resources, our experience and our unique connections, we have an ever-growing part to play in solving world problems.

In the past 30 years, we have achieved many great things, from a wide array of investments into our public services to elimination of our national debt, the re-election of a Social Democratic Senate will make it possible to finish this great task that the people have entrusted upon us.

BREAKING NEWS


President Puicu Gevin disappears

Head of state President Puicu Gevin nowhere to be found, while the military-run alternative provisional government of Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) de facto takes control


President Puicu Gevin, who tried getting re-elected for a second term through a fraudulent election, which has since been overturned by the Supreme Court of Lesva, has disappeared. The president is reportedly no longer in the country. His absence has not been officially explained yet, but he may have fled Lesva abroad to avoid getting overthrow or arrested over electoral fraud by his administration and by the Supreme Electoral Court of Lesva, which itself will be facing trouble. The absence of the president has left it open for the military-run alternative provisional government of Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) to take over. The only ones standing in the way are the cabinet and the parliament, but even they have basically surrendered at this point.

Prime Minister Pagala Ira and Speaker of the Carto Atsac Colecta resign, surrendering power to the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP)

Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) takes over power from the government and the parliament after the resignation of Prime Minister Pagala Ira and Speaker of the Carto Atsac Colecta


As tanks approached more government buildings, including headquarters of the cabinet and the parliament, Prime Minister Pagala Ira and Speaker of the Carto Atsac Colecta have announced their resignations. Effectively, the absence of the president is seen as a surrender of the administration, the resignation of the prime minister is seen as a surrender of the government and the resignation of the parliamentary speaker makes this the surrender of the parliament. At this point, the power is open for a military takeover by the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP).

General Pava Sari declares Martial Law for an unspecified period

To end the post-election civil unrest and avoid a post-military takeover revolt in Lesva, the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) has declared Martial Law in all of Lesva for an unspecified time


Chairman of the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) General Pava Sari has declared Martial Law in Lesva to end the post-election civil unrest and avoid a post-military takeover revolt in the country. The Martial Law has been imposed for an unspecified period of time. The Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) promises to give the press more updates.

General Pava Sari confirms that President Puicu Gevin is abroad

Chairman of the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) General Pava Sari says that removed President Puicu Gevin is abroad, but does not specify the country


General Pava Sari, Chairman of the newly-installed Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) provisional military government of Lesva, has confirmed the whereabouts of the disappeared President Puicu Gevin. Although the General has not given too much detail, he confirmed that President Gevin is abroad. However, the country where the President is, has not been confirmed. The only hint has been made it is most likely on the nearby continent of Gael, which Lesva is considered a part of, despite not being part of the mainland because of its’ status as an island country.

How the president, or more correctly at this point – the former president, ended up abroad has also not been specified. At this point, it might be possible that President Gevin fled the country during an uprising against his administration. That is the only option currently “on the table.” General Sari said that the information about the whereabouts has come from the intelligence agencies of Lesva now loyal to the military-run provisional government of Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP). Further updates will come later.

Stringer speaks for Conservative Democratic Party

A young emerging figure of the Conservative Democrats, Weston Stringer, was given a shared platform with party leader Garfield Debenham. At only 22, his surprise fame within the party is spreading across the political sphere. Stringer has been selected as the Conservative Democratic Party candidate for Madam Blue Street Cedar Point, a marginal Social Democratic seat that the Conservative Democrats are hoping to win. Some have called this a ploy to win over youthful voters.

“If you are both entering this election without a family, I have a message for you. You and I are both young, yet to understand the fruits of life experience. We know the greatness of family. We understand that family comes before everything. We know that family provides for every function of life, not government. We understand all this and more because we’ve grown in families. So we understand that when we are fortunate enough to be gifted with our own family that our number one priority will be their welfare. Be it loving them, caring for them, nursing them, we understand the concepts of family. Therefore, we must vote for that future family. We must prepare for our own families. How do we do that? Well we start by voting for a Conservative Democratic Senate. It is only the Conservative Democratic Party who can guarantee no government intervention in social life. Government cannot do good for families, the individual themselves must do good. Government is not the solution.

Allow me to turn to those going into this election who have families. You really do not need a lecture from a young, inexperienced speaker like myself. I absolutely respect your wisdom and grand knowledge. I have much to learn from you. So, instead, I wish to merely ask this: if given the opportunity to go back in time, knowing what you know today, would you vote for the Social Democratic Party in last years’ election? If your answer is no, you have one option: vote out the leftist radicals, vote out the liars and vote in the Conservative Democrats.”

Royal Military Museum opens exhibit

Image
M-13 in Mokov 1943, now on display

The Royal Military Museum has opened it’s doors on the newest interactive exhibit, the tank hanger. Now on display is several tanks from Havallish history, although they are looking for historical foreign tanks. Though many tanks are no longer operational some unique ones are and are taken out of the hanger to show them driving. One in particular is a fully operational M-13 Medium tank that served in the Mokovi civil war in 1943. Many M-13 Grey Wolves were lost but there were plenty built, another unique piece is the M-7 Black Bear on display, although rendered inoperable due to the damage it sustained, the M-7 is a rare tank with very few ever built.

The military also provided the museum with one M-20 Jackal, the MBT currently used by the Havallish Royal Military. The Royal Military Museum is completely government funded and open to the public, though donations are welcome there will be no entrance fees to help promote Havallish education.

Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) confirms snap presidential and parliamentary elections

General Pava Sari and the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) have confirmed that there would be snap parliamentary and presidential elections held in Lesva


The Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) has made an awaited confirmation that Lesva’s democracy would not only be preserved, but that the country would return to democratic processes in a very near future. Chairman of the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) General Pava Sari has announced free and fair parliamentary and presidential elections in the near future, in contrast to the falsified recent presidential election, the results of which had been annulled by the Supreme Court of the Republic of Lesva. The dates for the elections are yet to be specified, but it is planned that both elections would happen within 2021.

Until Lesva returns to an elected civilian government, the country would continue to be ruled by the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) led by its’ Chairman General Pava Sari. However, at the same time it is not entirely the only option. In addition to that, the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) might return power to an appointed civilian government body as the transitional government, instead of keeping Lesva under the governance of a military government. However, the status quo currently remains, with the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) fulfilling the functions of the executive and legislative branches of the government, while only the Supreme Court operates independently.

On another important topic in the political life of Lesva, such as the location of ousted President Puicu Gevin, whose whereabouts are yet to be discovered, the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) has yet to give any updates. What remains, is the previous announcement that was already made on the topic. The former head of state of Lesva is abroad, but his specific location remains a mystery or at least a mystery to the public.

Controversial "Civil Defense Act" passes Jicovian House

Rowan Opener

The controversial Civil Defense Act passed the Jicovian House yesterday after the fourth round of voting. This law extends government powers in the event of civil disobedience or rioting. It also provides a new Constitution for states of emergency. This Emergency Constitution allows:
    Suspension of the Jicovian House
    President effectively ruling as an autocrat
    Curfews
    Lockdowns
and more.

This bill seems directed at the Union for Palo Independence (UPI), which has escalated into violence in the Palo region. This bill always had received strong support from the Nationalists, and President Saxman. The Liberty Party were strongly against the bill, due it allowing lockdowns and imprisonment without trial. The Reformists were mainly for this law, as their extreme ideology would use this law. However, two Reformists broke party lines; Linda Jo-Manning and Maximilian Jozef. The Socialist Party was against, due to it being able to exploit workers. The law passed 46-44 in the Jicovian House.

Saxman fronted up to a press conference after the law was passed:

Frank Reynolds, Channel4 News: People across the political spectrum have accused this law of allowing human rights abuses. Comment?

Saxman: This law is only to be used in times of great need. This law should not be used politically, nor selfishly. I hopefully never will have to use it, but the threat must be there as deterrent to extremist groups.

Reynolds: You haven't answered my question. I asked about whether this law allows human rights abuses.

Saxman: As I said, these extreme measures will only be used when required. I believe these tiny sacrifices are necessary to save lives.

Jon Stewart, jnews.com: Is this law directed at the Union for Palo Independence?

Saxman: It will be used to combat all threats to the great Republic. Yes, we hope this will deter the Union.

Amen Rohanski, NJC Online: Do you believe the support received from the Reformists begins an alliance between your parties?

Saxman: In short, no. I thank them for supporting this bill, for supporting a safe New Jacobland. However, they have an extreme totalitarian ideology, which I cannot condone. Hopefully they will see sense and move away from authoritarianism.


Political analyst Tim Taylor had a comment:

This looks to me like another way Saxman is consolidating his power. He has been increasingly authoritarian, and this seems like part of his plan.

Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) nicknames ongoing events in Lesva – “Saela Spring”

”Saela Spring” becomes the nickname for the political crisis in Lesva, which began with a fraudulent presidential election and ended in a military coup


The ongoing political crisis in Lesva has received its’ nickname from the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) provisional military government currently in power. The event has been publicly called – “Saela Spring” by Chairman of the Authority for Democratic Preservation General Pava Sari. According to the General, this phrase combines the time period or the time of the year during which the event occurred, the understanding of spring as a “period of revival, revolution or change”, Lesva’s capital city Saela as the location or epicenter of the events, the removal of increasingly autocratic rule of President Puicu Gevin and his predecessor President Iodam Precin (both from the party of the Union of Libertarians and Nationalists), and the historical coincidence or significance of political changes having often occurred in spring and having removed autocratic leaderships or dictatorships. It can be debated how accurate is the description of the “Saela Spring” as a period of liberation can be. Currently, Lesva has a military government and there is Martial Law imposed to have the country stabilized from political unrest and street activism during the ongoing significant transitional period.

LifeBus Mobilizes to Protect the Breasts
Image

Today marked the initiation of mobile healthcare provider LifeBus' campaign against breast cancer. Although LifeBus began as a multifaceted mobile health clinic providing screening and checkups for a variety of conditions including mammography, the company is now initiating a particularly proactive campaign against breast cancer.

"Early detection is important for many health issues," said LifeBus CEO Zamile Dandala, "we believe we can make an impact in a short time with our targeted campaign." Dandala recently tripled his fleet from 4 to 12 busses; 4 of them now house more dedicated mammography equipment, and advertise the benefits of early breast cancer screening on their exteriors. These modified busses allow a greater number of women to be screened for the condition than would have been possible before.

Dandala disclosed that the 4 busses were delegated as part of a specialized division led by breast cancer survivor Naomi Makiesse. Makiesse told the Royal Kessa Times that she was honored to have some control over the mammography task force. "I intend to be in the field as much as possible, showing other women that there is hope," Makiesse said. Mammography LifeBusses are set to travel throughout Martenyika including areas around Kessa, Chasse, Kejara, Zawezi, and Hena.

Chairman of the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) General Pava Sari visits Balnik: A new foreign policy trajectory for Lesva after the events of the “Saela Spring”?

The first foreign visit by Chairman of the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) General Pava Sari since the fall of the autocratic rule of President Puicu Gevin and the previous Lesvan government and parliament, is made to Balnik, hinting at a new pro-Balnik foreign policy direction for Lesva


Image


Chairman of the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) General Pava Sari has made the first foreign visit, since the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) provisional military government took over power in Lesva by overthrowing the administration of the President Puicu Gevin, the government of Prime Minister Pagala Ira and the Carto (legislature/parliament of Lesva) chaired by Speaker Atsac Colecta, in a military coup. Only the Supreme Court of Lesva has been allowed to remain more or less independent from the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) provisional military government.

It is not a random choice that General Pava Sari went to a Gael power Balnik of all places. The General declared that following the events now called the “Saela Spring”, referring to the recent political crisis ranging from fraudulent presidential election to the military coup against an increasingly autocratic leadership in Lesva, which may have once been elected democratically, Lesva is now changing its’ foreign policy direction after its’ recent March Revolution, another one of alternatives names for the “Saela Spring.” Lesva is now looking southwestwards to specific countries on mainland Gael, like Balnik in particular, and seeks to establish a strategic alliance between Lesva and Balnik or more countries in that same geopolitical team.

Prior to the events of the “Saela Spring” and a change of power, Lesva positioned itself as a neutral state with a tendency towards some isolationism. The previous Lesvan government wanted to fortify Lesva’s neutrality and legally block the chance for the country’s accession to international organizations constitutionally, as well as blocking individual alliances with other countries or alignment to power blocs. Looks like the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) does not plan on following that neutral direction. General Pava Sari acknowledged the friction that could develop between Lesva and the adversaries of Balnik because of Lesva’s strategic and geopolitical alignment choices, but the General said that the Republic of Lesva is ready for that challenge.

Chairman of the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) General Pava Sari visits Belantica

After a short break following a visit to Balnik, the second foreign visit by Chairman of the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) General Pava Sari is made to Belantica


Image


Chairman of the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) General Pava Sari is visiting Belantica, having taken a short break from the visit to Balnik. The visit is described as part of the new foreign policy trajectory aimed at aligning with certain powers on Gael, while abandoning Lesvan neutrality after the “Saela Spring”, however, it is also happening by the invitation from the Belantican side. General Pava Sari says there are “diplomatic initiatives” underway from Lesvan side regarding relations with countries like Balnik, Belantica and their other allies.

General Pava Sari still has not answered the press questions whether either of the two visited nations or any other country in Gael is the location, where ousted President Puicu Gevin could be hiding or has been exiled to. We remind our audience that according to the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) and General Pava Sari himself, the Lesvan intelligence agencies have information of President Puicu Gevin having disappeared because of his fleeing abroad in the events of “Saela Spring”, which have deposed him.

UPI takes Saxman to Supreme Court

Rowan Opener

The Union for Palo Independence has taken President Saxman to the Supreme Court over the controversial Civil Defense Act. The bill was passed 46-44 five days ago, and was met with criticism from all sides of politics. These tweets show the anger of the citizens:

NJPoll carried out two polls in the wake of the bill:

1. Do you support the UPI?
a) Yes (9%)
b) No, but I support Palo independence (37%)
c) No, Palo should remain New Jacoblandian (54%)
2. Do you support the Civil Defense Act?
a) Yes (13%)
b) No (87%)

Avio University analyst Tim Taylor spoke on the poll results:

This is probably the most unpopular bill I have ever seen passed. It seems like Saxman is committing political suicide. However, where Saxman's leadership is going, he won't need popularity...


The violent organisation Union for Palo Independence has vowed to bring down the law, taking it to the Supreme Court. Their case is based around lockdowns, although being constitutionally valid, being a state responsibility, not a federal one. The defense is based on the clause: "In the event of a declaration of a State of Emergency by the Jicovian House, this Constitution may be suspended, with full power residing in the Jicovian House for the length of the Emergency." As Saxman has declared a State of Emergency, he believes the law can stay. It appears likely the law will be upheld, but Saxman may be forced into a referendum on the issue. This way requires a petition with 50,000 signatures, and has not been used before. If the petition is successful, a referendum on the clause will happen.

Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) transfers power, appointing Acting President, Acting Prime Minister and Caretaker Parliament until snap elections

A power transit occurs, as the Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) restores constitutional state institutions by appointing an acting administration of Acting President, an acting government of Acting Prime Minister and a caretaker parliament of the Carto made up of nonpartisan lawmakers – all in anticipation of snap elections


Authority for Democratic Preservation (ADP) provisional military government, led by its’ Chairman and Chief of the General Staff of the Lesvan Armed Forces General Pava Sari, is transferring power after having held control of the country for 16 days. ADP has restored the constitutional state institutions of the administration of the President, the government headed by a Prime Minister and the Carto, the official unicameral legislature of the Republic of Lesva.

ADP has appointed interim nonpartisan officials in the positions in the aforementioned institutions and the highest offices in the country. Taica Berislavić would become Acting President leading an interim administration. Vio Kosar would become Acting Prime Minister leading an interim government, including an interim cabinet. Aicil Vrban would take the position of Acting Speaker of the Carto. The Carto itself would function as a caretaker parliament made up of nonpartisan MPs. According to General Pava Sari, this non-military interim government would function until snap presidential and parliamentary elections, which have been declared earlier. The Supreme Court of Lesva has been the only one that remained and would remain untouched because of how compliant it has been with the “revolutionary happenings” of the so-called “Saela Spring.”

As for the ADP provisional military government, it would officially self-disband, having transferred power over to a civilian interim government of Lesva. Nevertheless, Martial Law would remain in place in Lesva and Chief of the General Staff of the Lesvan Armed Forces General Pava Sari would have the authority to check up on Acting President Taica Berislavić, Acting Prime Minister Vio Kosar and Acting Speaker of the Carto Aicil Vrban along with the caretaker parliament, in order to make sure it keeps the “necessary Martial Law” in effect.
