Fischer Leadership Challenge Incoming? // DNS

Image
Above: Former Ministers Florence Kirsch & Jean-Claude Schlechter.


Last month, former ADA ministers Florence Kirsch & Jean-Claude Schlechter were married at a small, private ceremony in their hometown in Largonia. Kirsch was previously Environment and Tourism Minister, and Schlechter was Minister for Food and Agriculture - where the two unmarried politicians first met and ended up dating. While Esther Fischer publicly congratulated the couple on social media, she must know deep in her heart that something is not right here. Both have clear political aspirations, and both are part of the remaining centrist branch of the ADA who have grown to despise Fischer for leading their party so far to the right. Both also are wildly popular among that centrist branch, and would be seen by many others as a pathway to winning back support and the chance at partaking in a government. So with all of that in mind, is there a chance that Fischer could soon face a leadership challenge?

The history books do not tell the best story for Kirsch and Schlechter. Kirsch ran against Fischer when she was first elected and lost heavily to the then Foreign Minister, losing in the end by a hefty two-to-one margin. That suggests a very uphill battle for Kirsch to climb in the membership, needing - at least - over 200,000 of the membership to change their mind and vote for her despite having previously voted against Fischer. Fischer also has shored up her own support within the party by pandering to the majority right-wing membership, which makes her position almost unassailable for the time being. Schlechter, meanwhile, lost the party's Presidential primaries to Jan-Henrik Hatrig - albeit by a very narrow margin. Unlike in his wife's tale, Schlechter was so narrowly defeated there is definitely support for him within the party. Furthermore, Hatrig was later defeated heavily while Fischer has only seen the party lose 10 seats.

However, there are several key differences between now and when the two newlyweds were respectively defeated by Fischer and Hatrig. Firstly, and most importantly, is that Fischer has had several hiccups as leader. She has not increased the party's seat or vote tally, in fact she has minorly decreased both. She has also alienated former allies like the Centrist Party and HVV, which has meant the ADA has been ejected from government while having seats in the Federal Assembly for the first time in the party's history. That a key problem for Fischer, who has lost some support from the status quo who fear she will lead them to being non-electable. Secondly, and also very importantly, Fischer's new alliance - New Dorvik - needs to gain a significant amount of seats in order to win the next election. Even factoring in probable KRA and PWS coalition arrangements, they are still a while off and are having to face a big-tent opponent as the more extreme faction.

However, key differences exist the other way around. Fischer has made an image for herself as a motivating speaker and strong debater due to Federal Assembly shenanigans and her rallying cry after the latest round of elections. She has also succeeded in uniting the right of the DVP, DNP and ADA into one alliance. That alliance, if combined with the KRA and PWS, need 34 seats to win the next election - a big ask, but a perfectly plausible one. The Presidency is also likely to be once more in-play with the entirety of New Dorvik behind one, unified candidate. Yet still, the many things going wrong for Fischer mean the party membership can still end up dumping her for somebody on the centrist wing of the party. United as a centrist and an insurgent duo, Kirsch and Schlechter are widely expected to challenge Fischer closer to the election. Fischer is not seen as likely to win the election, but the chance at becoming Chancellor is tantalisingly close.

Winter Crisis Looms for Health Services
Worst Dorvik winter in half a century places enormous strain on health services, particularly in the north of the country.

The ongoing Dorvik winter, the worst since 4328, has seen day-time temperatures drop to as low as -31 degrees Celsius and snow drifts up to three metres high. Although the country’s year-round subarctic climate means that public services are usually well prepared, this year’s cold snap has been particularly brutal. Health services have been especially affected; figures released by the Health Department show that there has been a 39% increase in patient admittance during the last two weeks. Furthermore, just 67.4% of Accident and Emergency patients were treated within four hours, far below the 95% stipulated by government ministers.

Image
Some ambulance services have been suspended after a number of vehicles became trapped in snow.

In a statement to the Federal Assembly, Health and Social Care Minister Elias Werner announced:
Extra emergency funding has been released to health care providers to deal with the increased number of patients. Of course, winter is the worst time for illnesses and this is year is proving to be no exception. The government is currently doing everything possible to mitigate the effects of this year’s abnormally low temperatures. We ask that people take care of themselves and only call the emergency services if they feel it is absolutely necessary.

President Holman, a doctor by profession, volunteered his services at Haldor Central Hospital. Speaking briefly to reporters as he entered the hospital, Holman said:
We can all make a difference. I encourage people who can help, to do so.

Given that weather forecasts are predicting no let-up in the adverse conditions, an emergency cabinet meeting will be held later this week to discuss further steps in helping health services.

New Dorvik Set to Expand

When the ADA and DNP united to form a right-wing alliance recently, their first joint policy caused a massive stir in Parliament with people on all parties jumping in to have their say. Now, the DVP have also joined the alliance, and rumours are circling that the PdWS are also looking to get in on the group.

This appears to be the first major steps towards uniting the right, and pitches Gluck, Fischer and the other leaders as key players, not just leaders of small opposition parties. There are also rumours the group is looking to expand to include other right-wing parties too, but this is still uncertain.

Now commanding 234 seats in the legislature, can an organised, united right defeat the left? Or will the older Alliance for Progress reign victorious?

AGREEMENT REACHED
The Dorvish government has reached a agreement with the Medinese sultan on an armistice

After intense negotiations and months of uncertainty the Dorvish government and the Medinese government have finally reached a concensus.
The Medinese Sultan agreed to sign a armistice for the duration of half a year in order to discuss possible lasting peace between Medina and Utembo.

While we would have rather seen Medinese forces removed from Utembo territory we are glad the Sultan has agreed to this temporary armistice. It will give us, the international community, the time to organize peacetalks and get the 2 opposing sides at the table. We are planning on creating a summit to be held in Haldor that will launch peacetalks. We are currently negotiating with both sides on a suitable date for this summit


Said Foreign Minister Felgenhauer

Reports from Utembo suggest that Medinese forces have indeed stopped their advance and major fighting has halted in the region.

HVV JOINS NEW DORVIK
The HVV has joined the New Dorvik electoral alliance

After a meeting between the ministerial candidates and party leadership the HVV has decided to join the right wing "New Dorvik" alliance.
It was an unexpected move, the HVV is currently in government with mostly left wing party's and has worked with them fairly well. Some experts even suggested that the HVV may join the left wing "Alliance for Progress". But after much internal debate the party decided that the right should be united.

We have worked fantastically with our left wing partners but we think that the right has for to long been dominated by personal pride and this has been standing in the way of any real unity. We should create a strong right wing bloc that can deal with the nations problems head on. We have proved to the people that we are an excellent governing party and that we can cooperate with anyone but ofcourse we would prefer a right wing coalition to truly push our agenda more effectively.

Said Benjamin Hauke during the public party meeting.

With most of the right alligned with New Dorvik and the left with the Alliance for progress it will be a true battle between left and right in the election of 4378. If New Dorvik wins they could be in a position to create a true right wing coalition. something that hasnt been done in years.

HVV Denied Membership To New Dorvik // DNS

Image
Above: ADA Leader Esther Fischer


New Dorvik has denied membership to the HVV despite their attempt to join the alliance. The HVV, who are in government at the moment, sought to join the opposition group in order to fight for the right in the next election - but the parties currently in New Dorvik felt otherwise. All parties in the alliance must consent to new membership, and both the Party of the Far Sun and the ADA refused to support them in joining the alliance. While negotiations did take place between the party and alliance, they did not result in agreement and instead saw the HVV refused entry to the right-wing alliance. This came as a shock to many after the HVV had been open about wanting to enter a right wing alliance, saying that though he thought that 'the right has for to long been dominated by personal pride', he wanted 'strong right wing bloc that can deal with the nations problems head on' - but the ADA and PWS cut that idea off quickly.

Both the ADA and PWS gave their main reason for barring entry as being 'disloyalty' shown by the HVV to the right. The HVV left their last government coalition over a disagreement in justice policy, a scar that has damaged the ADA's image of its fellow right-wingers and has made the party a highly unpopular one amongst the ADA's top dogs. Even some who are plotting to oust Fischer dislike them. Esther Fischer and Tina Thorn both chose to veto the membership bid, while the PWS gave their own statement saying that they did not want the HVV in the coalition as they had sided with the left in government over supporting the right. One right-wing local to Haldor told DNS on the street he 'didn't support the HVV so that they would go and prop up the left, and to be honest I've really been reconsidering my vote'. That doesn't mean the HVV will lose seats, however, they're not project to lose many or any in most polls.

Where this leaves the HVV is hard to determine. It could be taken as a sign of disloyalty by the left, and another right-wing party chosen in their stead at the next election. It could mean nothing in the end, and the government is actually solidified. Alternatively, the HVV could wiggle their way into the New Dorvik alliance through changing the mind of the parties within in. That would likely take time, however, and also would not be a job best done by Hauke - who Fischer privately refers to as 'the skunk' due to his black-and-white hair and 'general smelliness', as she is said to have told a colleague. With that kind of terminology involved, it is doubt-worthy the HVV is getting in New Dorvik anytime soon. Twice-failed presidential candidate Hossler was also trying to become the alliance's presidential candidate - which, in conclusion to this article, was called by one ADA member: 'the stupidest bullshit I've ever heard, utterly impossible'.

Yes, it was Tina Thorn.


Christoph Enkelmann Takes Over Father's Job // DNS


In September, ten years after he had founded the party, Peter Enklemann officially stepped down as the leader of the far-left party 'the Red Movement'. He had seen many other parties change their leadership, but had always remained a steady and enduring figure in the politics of Dorvik. Now, the leader of what was once called 'Rise Up!', has passed on the mantle to another Enklemann - his son Christoph Enkelmann. As the oldest Enklemann son, Christoph has the name recognition already and a large amount of his party supporting him. Internal sources claim that the Enklemann lineage is very popular within the party. While many on the far-right have called this an example of a dictatorial-style example of nepotism, many others see it as a solidification of the family and of the Red Movement's political identity. With a well-known name behind them, the Reds have a distinct possibility of one day entering government.

Widespread Discontent With Red Movement's Religious Proposal // DNS

Image
Above: This woman, carrying a sign in Luthori so she would be understand internationally, was one of hundreds at a rally against the bill in rural Largonia.


The right-wing in the country have been up in arms at the Red Movement's proposal to ban not only the advertisement of and education via religion, but to ban religion altogether. The proposal, called by the right the 'thought crime bill', has literally no support amongst ADA membership particularly and basically none in the rest of the right. The vast majority of membership in all parties but the Red Movement oppose it, as do a clear 85% of the public. Only 8% of the public actually support it, with 7% unsure. That makes this the most unpopular legislation put before the country in recent history. The Hosian community has been in uproar since the bill's proposal, with many church memberships and leaders from all faiths condemning the legislation. In fact, some priests, bishops, imams and rabbis are even telling their congregation directly that it is against God's will to vote for them in the upcoming election.

It has 101 votes at the time of this article, with the support of the Red Movement that proposed it and surprisingly the DVP. The New Dorvik alliance have formally asked the DVP to change their vote, and many in the membership of the DVP expect this to be a misreading of the bill or even a technical error that will soon be resolved. If the DVP is supportive of the banning of religion, their removal from New Dorvik would be all but certain and it would cause even more division on the right. The bill is opposed by the ADA, HVV, Centrists, KRA and DNP - a very wide-spanning group of parties from both alliances and both from the government and also from the opposition. The bill will almost certainly be defeated lest the GLP and PWS vote for it, which is extremely unlikely. The PWS particularly is a very religious party with a very religious membership, and the GLP are not radical enough to support it.

Regardless of the lack of feasible paths to being passed, the proposal of the legislation caused utter outrage across the country. In the FA, Esther Fischer - who leads the ADA - was the first person to shout down the bill. 'This is by far the most horrendous thing we have ever seen proposed to this chamber,' she said, certainly not mincing her words and portraying utter outrage at the proposal. Herman Gluck said that 'this is a ridiculous bill', and both mentioned politicians incited the idea of 'thought-crime' being made reality from the legislation. Maik Shau, HVV Minister of Internal Affairs, was also damning - saying the legislation was something he thought to 'only exist in communist dictatorships.' Across the country, especially the very religious southern states, there were massive rallies with hundreds to thousands against the bill. That's a clear sign of massive public disapproval.

New Dorvik has released a statement calling for the Alliance for Progress to revoke the membership of the Red Movement, saying that no alliance should tolerate such legislation and such extremely negative and divisive attempts to 'control the human mind'. Again talking about thought-crime, former Foreign Minister Esther Fischer said to reporters today that 'there would be hell to pay if the Alliance for Progress kept them as members, and especially if they entered government'. Asked what 'hell' would come to be payed, Fischer was clear in saying 'as I said in the FA, I think that massive numbers of people would be willing to take to the streets, in fact we're already seeing that, and there would likely be massive instability and calls for resignations'. Fischer may, however, fully expect the Red Movement to be kept on - and even want it to happen, due to the lasting damage it could have on the left.

PdWS Leadership Battle

Long-time Leader Christoph Wiegand formerly of the Thallerist Hosian Union and now chairman of the PdWS has been challenged by mulitple figures in the party. Not only the notorious Maximilian von Thaller but also by Dimitri Schacht. Wiegand is a very experienced and by now rather famous politician in Dorvik. In both Far-Right, Conservative and Market-Liberal circles Wiegand is a well liked individual. The PdWS still a new party have achieved a massive Victory with Wiegand leading them, the coming election will show if the future of the party is Wiegand, Thaller or Schacht. It is also quite controversial if the decision of joining New Dorvik has somehow damaged the internal reputation of Wiegand in the party. Most of the members like to see the right united, others state that it would sell the party below its value. The election campaigning just started in a cooperative manner with the other parties of New Dorvik, PdWS has problems mobilizing its members probably another reasonf or Wiegands authority to be challenged. Many political experts excitedly look towards the next general elections as it will decide if Dorvik chooses a progressive or a conservative future.

MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS REACTS ON SITUATION IN BIANJIE
Stella Felgenhauer reacts on the reported genocide of the Indralan minority in Bianjie

The Minister of Foreign affairs has reacted on the CHA report on the possible genocide in Bianjie. The CHA reported a possible genocide of the indralan minority following an investigation at a mass grave in the country. All sampled individuals in the grave proved to be Indralan.

Our ministry is working closely with our international partners into figuring out a strong response to these inhumane practises. If the report is correct and an entire minority is the victim of genocide we should respond with strength and decisiveness and nothing less. This crime against humanity must not stand if proved to be true. We are on high alert and have already informed the Assembly on possible reactions to this concerning situation.


Image

Indrala has not yet responded to the report but many within Indralan government circles talk of utmost shock to the findings of the CHA.
People from all over Terra are speaking of an outrage and call for action. "this cannot happen in such a modern world as ours!" said a social media user and "We have to do something!" said another.

While the situation worsens the international community will have to respond. We will keep you up to date on any developments.

INTERNAL AFFAIRS MINISTER SCHAU "ROTE IS THREATENING STABILITY"
Internal minister Schau has said that Rote is threatening the stability of the Republic

In a unexpected twist of events Internal Minister Maik Schau has said that "Rote is actively undermining the stability and security of our nation" following the RB proposal to ban religion and international media content and the bills to censor the internet.

We are not a dictatorship. Proposing such outrageous laws goes against every normal principle we have as a free and democratic nation. It also further divides our communities and promotes hatred to both religious and non religious citizens. These proposals made by Rote undermines the stability and security of the nation and this is why i am more then happy that they got repelled, we, as representatives of this nation, should always make sure that these outrageous, dictatorial and oppressive laws will never pass the Assembly.


Schau has urged party's to find a solution to the growing divide in society as it "will create dangerous situations and can even develop into acts of violence instigated by hatred" Schau would like to see party's propose laws to actively protect the population from such threats and "close the divide in society"
