November 4389

"Jaubert letter" appeals to Kanjor to act as "protector of the Mordusian Canrillaise"

Thirty-two respected and prominent but politically unaligned Mordusian Canrillaise citizens have signed an open letter addressed to the government of Kanjor, calling on them to "affirm themselves as a protector and intercessory for the Canrillaise of Mordusia". The letter makes specific reference to Kanjor's Defense of Canrillaişe Culture Act, which commits Kanjor to defend the rights of Canrillaise across Terra.

Mordusia's Canrillaise minority, which makes up 20% of the population, has felt increasingly threatened in recent years due to the growth in anti-Canrillaise discrimination and extremism, particularly with the growth in support for the notoriously anti-Canrillaise National Movement.

The letter has become known as the "Jaubert letter" because the most eminent and respected of its signatories is Alain Jaubert, a geneticist from Talasor State.


Manningham-Buller shocks intelligence chief with assassination request

National Movement chairman Frederick Manningham-Buller provoked uproar yesterday during a parliamentary committee meeting during which the Mordusian Head of the Intelligence Services was being questioned by MPs about administrative structural changes being made to his department. Whilst the committee was discussing a complicated series of budgetary issues, out of nowhere Manningham-Buller asked the intelligence chief whether it would be possible for him to arrange the assassination of Jabril Tutankhmumenhes Turner, Hawu Mumenhes's Foreign Minister, who recently described Manningham-Buller as a "mental health out-patient". The intelligence chief, visibly shocked, paused for a while and then replied "I could not see that as an option". Manningham-Buller then asked "Well, could you try?", at which point the chairman of the committee interjected and insisted the meeting return to the subjects on the agenda.

BREAKING: CAMILLE DUQUESNE CHALLENGES HOLLY GILMORE FOR LEADERSHIP OF THE SOCIALIST PARTY

Camille Duquesne, former deputy First Minister of Sammodra, former leader of the Parti Socialiste du Sammodra, and SP Spokeswoman for Finance, has challenged Holly Gilmore for leadership of the federal SP, citing frequent rebellions by shadow cabinet members who prefer centrist economic policies, as opposed to Gilmore's support of traditional Kodonomics.

“She cannot lead the Socialists. We are falling in the polls and our party keeps on rebelling against itself. We need strong leadership, and, I don't mean to toot my own horn, but I have leadership experience. Thank you, and vote for me to be leader of the Socialist Party”

Some people were questioning whether she could legally run for SP leader, as the PSS is technically independent of the SP on the electoral commission. It was decided that, as the SP and the PSS are in a formal alliance, she could run, but she would have to join the federal SP, which means that Camille is the member of two parties at once.

Duquesne is recognized to be of the centrist wing of the Socialist Party, as opposed to Gilmore's more traditionally social democratic approach. The election is seen as a battle between left and right for control of the Socialists.

Holly Gilmore declined to give a response to Ms. Duquesne's leadership challenge

Polls:
- Gilmore - 50.2%
- Duquesne - 49.8%

DUQUESNE CALLS ON OPPOSITION TO UNITE AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT
By Tom Daily

Camille Duquesne, candidate for the latest SP leadership election, has called on the Socialist Party, the Hosian Social Union, the Greens, and the Liberal Reformist Party to rally behind a single Governor-General candidate to beat Alexis Siegfried.

“This government relies on the support of fascists, I can't say that enough! Every opposition party needs to unite behind one candidate for Governor-General and to hopefully get enough seats to form a national unity coalition so we can end this mess of a government!”

Uniting the opposition might be easier said than done though. The Greens, the LRP, and the SP are all proudly secular parties, but the HSU has long been a voice of religious conservatism. The SP and the HSU generally support the current social model of Mordusia, while the LRP and the Greens are a consistent voice of change.

Still, revulsion at the Progress Party government could make these differences irrelevant as parties race to defend the status quo and consensus-building that has long been a mainstay of Mordusian politics

Canrillaise claims of persecution "ridiculous"

Image

The so called “Jaubert letter” which seems to have stirred up high emotion in Mordusia's southern neighbour Kanjor. Mordusian Foreign Minister Luther de Wald has commented it:

“This letter and its accusations are nothing ridiculous fairy-tales. I am of part-Canrillaise descent and I am a member of the government, mon dieu! I can assure everybody that I am having a great time here in Mordusia and that we are free to do Canrallaise things all the time. There is no need for Kanjor "protect” our culture here. You are just jealous because we have more promiscuous femmes with tiny little mustaches in this country.

We cannot be held accountable for the opinions of the National Movement just because we have a confidence-and-supply agreement with them. They are proud nationalists just like countries where governments declare themselves to be "protectors of the Canrillaise" so those complaints are just plain hypocrisy. Mordusia is a free country where people and political parties are allowed to have whatever opinion they want. Those who need a “protector” can always move to any of the countries to the south if they want to.”

Liberal Reformists put up former finance minister as Candidate for Governor-General!

In a surprise move, The Liberal Reformist Party has chosen to field its own candidate, spurning overtures to join an anti-Progress Part unity ticket. The candidate is confirmed to be former Liberal Union finance minister Sylvaine Linville, And is a surprisingly qualified candidate for a newborn party.

When approached for a comment, leader of the LRP Ally Fitzhugh, was confident of her party’s chances. “Sylvaine is a extremely qualified candidate, and a Liberal who’s proven time and time again that she can fight in the trenches. We look forward to the next election, and the opportunity to unseat the Progress Party in what could be an upset for ye ages.

It will be an uphill challenge for the party, but former Liberal Union politicians returning to the fight is a promising sign for the fledgling party. Could we be seeing a party of government in the making? Or will they suffer the same fate of the LU? Only time will tell.

HOLLY GILMORE WINS LEADERSHIP ELECTION BY JUST 77 VOTES

Results
- Holly Gilmore - 50.01% (273,479 votes)
- Camille Duquesne - 49.99% (273,402 votes)

Holly Gilmore secured an extremely narrow victory of just 77 votes against her challenger, Camille Duquesne at a heated special conference. Many of Duquesne's supporters have called for a recount, and some have even accused Gilmore of electoral fraud, but Duquesne accepted defeat, saying, “I lost and I accept that. I'm not going to act like a brat and storm off to demand a recount”

Only 2 resolutions were passed, including one that called for a united front against the Progress Party led coalition and another calling for a general strike against the ruling government

Governor-General Linville shocks the nation, announces Coalition for Change

in a victory for the ages, the Liberal Reformist Party has swept the Governor-General’s seat, and finished a solid second in parliament. Governor-General-Elect Sylvaine Linville has succeeded to the head of the LRP at the behest of Ally Fitzhugh, who will now head the parliamentary party. Linville wasted no time at the head of the party, and announced a radical rebranding: The Coalition for Change. She went on to say, “the LRP has won, and will govern the country to the best of their ability. But we cannot do it alone. Therefore our party will become a coalition, a coalition for change. A catch all party for united, proud Mordusia.” It is uncertain as of yet how the new party will define itself, or if it will split into ideologies camps, like the HSU. Can this radical idea work? Or will it collapse like the Liberal Union before it?

Scandal: Westwheel-Cohen Bank Caught Illegally Funding Cohenist Groups in Alduria

By Jon Jones

Undercover reporter Johnathan Jones posed as a Merzist-Cohenist leader in the nation of Alduria, directly to the south of Mordusia. Cohenism, an ideology believing in socially conservative or even theocratic values while also supporting a proletarian vanguard party, was thought to be really exclusive to Mordusia. They are the largest party in the country and the only party of its kind in the world.

During his time there, he had several individuals approached him from the Westwheel and Cohen families about the possibility of funding the rise of this country, their neighbor, hoping for a ‘Cohenist bloc’ where traditional values rule in a workers nation. Unfortunately for the Westwheels, funding foreign political parties or conspiracy to do so is banned under Mordusian law.

The repercussions of this action are yet to be seen, but it is now clear that the ideals of Cohenism are set to be exported outside of Mordusia.
