PARLIAMENT AND MUNICIPAL COUNCIL OF VOI APPROVE NAME CHANGE, AWAITS CHANCELLOR’S SIGNATURE

Mar. 15, 2012 (Voi) – By a 4-1 vote, the Municipal Council of the City of Voi has approved the proposed name change of the nation’s capital city from Voi to New Adana. This name change, if approved by the chancellor, will take place on the second anniversary of the nation’s liberation from its’ monarchial past. The change is expected to be approved by Chancellor Ellen Forge within the next 24 hours. The City of Voi is the capital city of the Republic of Quadrimmina as per the “Capital City Establishment Act”, which replaced the capital city of Adana after it was captured by the Quadrimmina Liberation Army. Now that the new government has been set up and is in effect, it was proposed that the name change be rescinded and New Adana be adopted as the permanent name of the nation’s capital.
Voi was selected as the capital’s name by Franklin Achisto and approved by then-General Ellen Forge as the new name of the City of Adana, which was then a 5-district city. Upon liberation of Quadrimmina, the City of Voi was expanded into 12 districts and declared a supercity. Now that liberation has been guaranteed and acceptance of the new government has occurred, it has been determined that a return to the old name would allow the continuation of the nation’s heritage. This would follow in the same vain as the decision by the former Catherine Province’s vote to be renamed “New Catherine Province” following the liberation of that region.
A referendum was held upon liberation in each province to confirm the names that had been chosen by the respective governors of the provinces, of which 7 kept their original names and 7 voted for a name change. The City of Voi had requested a change to the name Adana, but the Municipal Council of Voi rejected this, citing the non-binding nature of Voi’s referendum and the need for a strong national capital during rebuilding. After this two year time period, the name change was agreed upon, and it is expected that Voi will rename itself New Adana in the coming days.

Update: (Mar. 16, 2012, 12:45 PM QST) Chancellor Ellen Forge has approved the name change, and it shall become law on March 21, 2012 at 12:00 AM QST.

KERRIGAN SURVIVES VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE

Mar. 21, 2012 (New Adana) - After a stunning failure to pass the "International Marriage Accords" resolution in the World Assembly, Ambassador Alexandra Kerrigan has survived a vote of no confidence in Parliament, which failed 12-48 in the Provincial House, and 45-205 in the Peoples' House. Leader of the Opposition Caucus Jordan Thayer proposed the vote of no confidence following the joint decision of the Minister of Foreign Affairs Madison Lewis and Ambassador Kerrigan to withdraw all legal attempts to pass an expanded international policy on marriage.
Following this embarrassing defeat, Ambassador Kerrigan issued an apology to the World Assembly and promised to continue the pursuit of her agenda. She was nominated by Chancellor Ellen Forge to succeed outgoing Ambassador Arlo Lewis, rumored to be undergoing health problems keeping him from adequately performing his duties. A petition in mid-2011 led to a recall election for her Ambassadorship that she survived, but this vote of no confidence is another blow to a tenure marred with repeated setbacks in the international arena. Ambassador Kerrigan was once known as the "Superstar of Quadrimminan Politics", and was considered on the fast track for a position as the Minister of Foreign Affairs, or even as Chancellor, in the 2015 or 2020 elections. It has been noted that after this incident, it will take much for Ambassador Kerrigan to reclaim her prior glory.
Ambassador Kerrigan is largely credited with her audacious actions as Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, pushing for WA proposal reform and accountability measures ("World Assembly Proposals Accountability Act") as well as fixing relations with numerous nations, aggressively pursuing human traffickers on Quadrimminan soil, and negotiating for a permanent region for Quadrimmina. These credits have turned to discontent, however, with complaints of her perceived weakness, idealism, and overwillingness to compromise. She is, however, credited with streamlining the priorities of our nation in the international arena, and is expected to propose more legislation in due time.
Members of the Quadrimminan Delegation to the World Assembly, as well as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, refused to comment further on this matter.
