A recent coup attempt to overthrow Victorieux from his office has failed. 16 perpetrators, all from the military have been taken into custody, following the neutralization of the armed insurrection. Victorieux has yet to comment on this situation, but the government has been put on high alert. Armed tanks came to the scene in the city square after reports of rogue soldiers attempting to stage an attack on the Council for National Cooperation. About 20 tanks rolled in to protect the government building.

President on a Terrible State of Health
13 July, 4346

President Ignacel Rapace, who has held his office for almost 19 years, has been revealed to be in a near unstable condition. Citizens and lawmakers alike fear he may die in office due to his conditions. It is not yet known if President Rapace will resign from office. Prime Minister Raoul Poullain recently expressed his views on the matter in a recent interview with the RAP stating that; "Unfortunately, it is very discernible that Mr President is not feeling well. Chances are, he might pass away while in office. I am currently discussing with the cabinet on what should happen, but once we come to a clear consensus, we will help decide what is best for the president."

AXISTS ACCUSED OF ELECTION TAMPERING
Labonne, Tirali
15 May 4349

Following the announcement of election results early this morning, the young Party for Metzism and Democracy has accused the ruling National Axist Party of voter tampering and electoral fraud. Citing the abysmal 16% turnout and the Axists' 100% victory in both Presidential and Assembly elections, PMD co-chair Augustine Hambard said, "It is clear to anyone with half a brain that the Axists have undermined the true will of the people and are furthering their goals of a totalitarian state," she continued, "the People of Rildanor will not stand for such an attack on our rights, it is clear that a change must come!"

When asked to elaborate on the nature of this "change," Hambard refused to comment further.

Neither the Government nor Axist Party have released a statement on these allegations as of yet.

President Rapace Resigns
23 May, 4350

Amidst concerns of election fraud and worsening health conditions, the President, Ignacel Marcel Rapace, who has held his position of power for two decades, announces his resignation to the people of Rildanor. At age 90, it is determined that he is no longer in a condition to lead the country. The National Axist Party has called for an early election while restructuring their leadership. However, there is also a growing concern that the hard-liners of the Axist party might initiate a takeover as attempted back in November of 4330.

Nationalists Declare Emergency Leadership of the Axist Party
24 May, 4350

A day after the resignation of President Rapace, François Beaubois alongside Lucrèce Pueyrredón, replaced Raoul Poullain as temporary leaders of the National Axist Party. Growing fears arise as the new NAP leader, François Beaubois, is known for his heavy nationalistic sentiments and authoritarian policies. Dimitri Fouché, the party spokesperson, has yet to comment on the recent leadership replacement, but it is suspected that he, and 11 other high ranking members of the National Axist Party have been discharged.

Image

At the moment, a call for early elections is being voted upon in the Axist-dominated National Assembly. The public fears that if François Beaubois replaces Rapace as the new president of the republic, hard times for Rildanor's democracy shall return. Patrice Victorieux, former deputy in the National Assembly commented on the situation claiming; "It is evident[...]that the ghost of the dictatorship lies beneath this man. I have seen this before, and the more time we waste hesitating to prevent his ascension to presidency, the more we expedite the process of degeneration for the Rildanorian democracy."

PMD Responds to President's Resignation; Shift in PNA Leadership
26 May 4350 (Backdated)

Following the National Axist Party's (PNA) announcement of President Rapace's resignation, and following change in leadership, the Party of Metzism and Democracy (PMD)--who originally issued the charge of electoral fraud against the PNA--issued an official statement via co-chair and Presidential candidate Augustine Hambard:

It is the dawn of a new day in Rildanor as the ailing leader of an aging, archaic regime has finally stepped down from his throne. However, in his stead rises another threat to our democracy. There are those in the government who would wish to drag us back to the dark ages of dictatorship and slavery, one of whom has now become President of our great Republic. The values on which Rildanor were founded have been brought to the brink of extinction once before--we still remember those days well--and we, as good citizens, cannot allow these despots to finish the job.

As such, we have held a nationwide party meeting, and the majority of our members have voted to establish and arm the Democratic Defence League (Ligue Défense Démocratique; LDD) to protect the People, and the party, against any attempts at aggression by the PNA or their goons. We will not be intimidated. We will not be threatened. We will not be silenced.

Massive Shake-up in National Assembly; PNA Removed from Government for the First Time in 10 Years
July 4352 (backdated)

People were in shock all over Rildanor today as the National Axist Party (PNA) did not gain a majority, in fact, they received the lowest amount of seats! The PNA has formed the core of the Government since their dramatic success in the 4343 general election. However, facing challengers from both left and right, the PNA found themselves reduced from 100% total control of the Assembly to a mere 14 of the 75 available seats. Likewise, a massive shock occurred in the Presidential election, as 1République-candidate Gertrude Bourdain found herself President-elect after receiving over 50% of the vote in the first round! 1République, a more traditional conservative party compared to the PNA's syncretic politics, also found themselves as the majority party in the Assembly, winning 40 of 75 seats, enough to form a Government without assistance from the other two parties. Neither PNA nor 1R have commented on the results, but when asked her feelings on the results, Party for Metzism and Democracy co-chair Inès Lémieux responded:

This is a great day for democracy! The people have spoken, and they are tired of the corrupt and stagnant rule of the Axists. It's astonishing that when the Axists put away their goons and the people are allowed to breathe, they'll choose anyone else [referring to the PMD's accusations of election rigging in the previous elections]! We are sad to see that reactionaries will still rule Rildanor [referring to 1République], but as the second largest party in the Assembly, we are proud to take up the mantle of Official Opposition and we will never stop fighting for the rights of the common people. The times, they are a-changing!

PMD Voices Support for Deltarian Socialist Union
January 4353

Over the past few months, a multitude of events have taken place in the Deltarian Empire, which have been covered in detail by the great reporters of The Deltarian. In response to the Socialist Union's victory in the general elections, the Deltarian Czar and his allies declared the new government illegitimate and engaged in what the supporters of the regime have called a coup. The action was a failure, but has resulted in a virtual civil war between the Socialist and Thellarian factions, and their various supporters. Though Rildanor's government has not commented on the incident, the leadership for the Party of Metzism and Democracy (PMD) earlier today announced their support for the Socialist Union as the legitimate government of Deltaria, saying

The people of Deltaria have long suffered under the cruel boot of the Czar. The people have spoken, and they have chosen liberation from their bondage. The reactionaries of the Deltarian government have attempted to quash the revolution, but the Will of the People remains strong. The Government of Rildanor may consider this matter irrelevant to the people of Rildanor, but this conflict represents the greater struggle between the proletariat and our unwanted masters. We fully support our comrades in Deltaria and will immediately introduce a bill in the Assembly requesting the Government formally recognise the SU as the true government of Deltaria! Workers of the world, unite!

Rildanor National Assembly Recognises Socialist Union Government
May 4353

A bill was recently introduced in the legislature calling on the Government of Rildanor to officially recognise the legitimacy of the Deltarian elections and the ascension of the Socialist Union into power. The bill is still being voted on, but as of now currently has the support of a majority of the Assembly, so it is very likely to pass.
