Democracy undermined in Pontesi as the Republican Party admits to election fraud
May 13, 4478

The 4478 Presidential and Legislative Elections resulted in a safe Republican Party win for both the Presidency and the Senate with a little over 60% of the vote in each. This upset has come as a surprise to the New Progressive Party of Pontesi(NPPoP) as it was widely believed that they would win the election easily. The NPPoP passed many reforms over the past few years that were believed to have overwhelmingly helped Pontesi, as well as bring more pro-democratic policies to the nation after a previous imperial administration attempt at making Pontesi an empire. Former President Ohanyan described it as "very suspicious" that such a result occurred, despite how much the NPPoP has done for the nation and the relatively recent appearence as well as lack of recent action of the Republican Party.

The previously-described shock was nothing compared to what would come afterward. Not long after the elections, the Republican Party openly admitted to committing election fraud on the Senate Floor. A recent publication in the Pontesian Enquirer by the Republican Party confirms this; they haphazardly published how they did it as well as their plans for the nation going forward.

As fast as they admitted to their involvment in this undermining of democracy, they put out a manifesto to the Senate Floor that outlined their agenda in the form of an omnibus bill. This legislation, among other things, would dramatically increase the Sales, Luxury, and Corporation taxes, as well as legalize discrimination across the board, segregation, and even slavery. Ohanyan expressed outrage on the Senate Floor, urging his fellow senators to reconsider any affirming votes to this legislation and hold the Republican Party accountable for their crimes. It would seem that there are dark times ahead for the Federal Constitutional Republic of Pontesi.

The Republican Party STEALS 600 BILLION pontesi from the GDP as economy falls from 2.7 trillion to 2.1 trillion.

Image

The President and the party are succeeding in terms of money as they grab 22% of the GDP for their finances. The President says ‘Only by voting for the Republican Party will the people expect investment and money in their pocket’. The minister of internal affairs is putting police funding from 25 billion to 250 billion with defence from 60 billion to 300 billion. The Pontesi government with this defence budget could create 1,000 nuclear arsenals and have the potential to destroy humanity if Pontesi and the Republican Party are at stake.

President of Pontesi, Serzh Manukyan calls on the Progressive party to rethink their actions and surrender to the Republican Party. He said ‘Those Left-wing Anti-fa thugs don’t know who they are trying to scare, if you provoke me, then a bear will be coming down through their necks’.

Serzh Manukyan honours military by arriving to the celebration of the first year of President while Ohanyan refuses to arrive to the military parade.
Image

‘Our time has come to destroy opposition and increase defence to a dramatic size that pontesi and the world have never seen. We will be ready to fight for the fatherland and slaughter Ahmadists, Communists and Liberals wherever they are. I ask any citizen in Pontesi to murder the opposition leader Ohanyan. If someone succeeds you will be given a 10 million pontesi award. Plus you won’t be jailed and your free to have the money. Anyone who says we are corrupt will be deported and the libtards and the Commies will pay the government their salary. This military parade is a warning to anyone against the government, DO NOT MESS WITH US!’

NPPoP Party Leader reluctantly goes into hiding at the advice of party officials following bounty announcement
March 11, 4479

The New Progressive Party of Pontesi held an emergency meeting at party headquarters after President Manukyan put a 10 million PON bounty on Party Leader Apel Ohanyan's head. This announcement of this bounty came during a military parade held in celebration to the president's first year in office, an occasion that Mr. Ohanyan did not take part in. NPPoP officials had discussed what should be done in regards to Mr. Ohanyan given his safety being comprimised by this bounty, as well as the future of the party. After the meeting concluded, the leader reluctantly agreed to go into hiding with other NPPoP members who feared for their safety while the rest of the party that remained unafraid of the threat stood firm in their opposition. Nothing else was said to the media regarding what was discussed during the meeting.

Brazen NPPoP Deputy announces will to continue opposition of the Republican Party despite threats
November 20, 4481

New Progressive Party of Pontesi Deputy Samuel Yeghiayan announces in a press conference that his party will continue to oppose the Republican Party's rule. He said that in the emergency meeting that took place after the President's initial bounty of the NPPoP Leader over two years prior, he, a few Senators, and staff convinced Ohanyan to flee into hiding with other party officials who feared for their life while the active NPPoP Senators stood their ground as part of the opposition within the Senate. Their positions as the opposition party within the Senate protects them from persecuation in accordance to Article 10 of the Pontesian Constitution(opposition parties having the right to oppose the government), as long as they are able to keep their seats in elections. Yeghiayan went on to give a message to the people of the nation:

We are fighting for you. We will continue to fight for you. We are the party of you, the Pontesian People, and we will restore our nation to what it once was before the current administration's rule. These horrible policies... slavery, segregation, discrimination, excessive taxing, war-mongering, almost non-existant healthcare and welfare funding, unrestrainted government corruption... I promise to you that these barbaric policies will end once our party returns to power and we, as a nation, will hold the Republican Party accountable for all they have done to Pontesi and to you, the Pontesian People!


There is no word on the whereabouts of Mr. Ohanyan and the staff that fled with him but it is assumed that they are seeking asylum somewhere, keeping away from the Republican Party's reach.

Republican Party concedes defeat as NPPOP take power!
Image
The Republican Party saw the results and did what was told, hand over the money and resigned to pave the way to a government that maybe be better. The money of 1 trillion during 4 years of the party was given to the Pontesian Government. We spoke to the leader of the party Serzh Manukyan the former President.
‘We have lost i was wrong and Ohanyan was right’ Once he said this Ohanyan was free in Pontesi and became the Head of state again. The Republican Party also created a cabinet of NPPOP members knowing that they have lost and have proposed this so they can go to opposition. ‘We thought that rigging elections were good but they weren’t enough voters to actually vote for us at the first place.’ Said Rafael Khurshudyan former Internal affairs minister.

SERZH MANUKYAN RESIGNS! As his son takes over as party leader.

Karen Manukyan takes over as leader of the Republican Party and orders a reform and works to destroy the old image of the party. “The Republican Party has killed the people of Ponesi and the reason why the left won.” Said Karen Manukyan. The Right-wing party of the Republican Party will now finally act like a capitalist party by cutting taxes. We will act like a real opposition and win over the voters that we have lost. The party has no way been rebranded to Prosperous Pontesi.

Tropican Deal bearing fruit as healthcare in Pontesi improves drastically
September 8, 4486

In December 4482, a deal was struck between the Prime Minster of the third-world nation of Tropica Mark Edwards and former-President Ohanyan. Pontesi would offer 11 billion PON a year from the nation's surplus for the next four years starting on September 4483 to Tropica to help fund their green energy projects as well as a team of green engineers to help, in exchange for a professional medical team from Tropica that would share their breakthroughs in medical research and help rebuild Pontesi's healthcare system after the Manukyan Regime's dismantling of it. Since then, our nation just made its third payment for the deal and the Tropican medical team has helped immensely in teaching Pontesian doctors of their latest in medical research and theories as well as helping to improve Pontesi's healthcare system from the Manukyan Regime's private system with very little to no funding into a well-funded effective public system with private options. President Yeghiayan states that he is happy with how this deal has positively affected our nation and hopes their contributions to Tropica's green energy projects are helping Tropica just as well.

4492 Pontesian National Elections
Liberal Conservatives take control, NPPoP Candidate comfortable with results
May 12, 4492

The results are in and NPPoP Candidate Azad Amailyan concedes to now-President Lara Topalian of the Liberal Conservative Union of Pontesi.

This marks the first time since the NPPoP formed in 4472 that an opposing party had legitimately won the Presidency and a majority in the Senate against the NPPoP. This is not counting the then-Republican Party's election win in 4478 as it was later admitted that win was acheived through election fraud.

Mr. Amailyan said in a statement that he is comfortable with the results as nationwide polling did seem to favor the Liberal Conservatives as they made their views more clear over the years. He stated that this is democracy in action and that the Pontesian People have spoken with their votes. Despite the loss, the NPPoP has great confidence that they can work together with the LCUoP. They don't see eye-to-eye on everything, but it seems like the opposing parties agree on enough that compromises are possible on pressing issues.
