This will be the 'Battle for Kregon'
October 14, 4327

Kristof Wolts, LNC Representative and vice-President of the Republic, says he is looking forward to the upcoming elections. With the withdrawal of LDSP, the second fraction in the Presidium, early elections can't be avoided.
"These elections will be known a the Battle for Kregon. LDSP was the largest party in that Province last year, but there wasn't any party who could get a majority. We know that Kregon always had some very loyal Nationalists, but it also is a very unpredictable Province when it comes to their political opinion. Anything is possible, but I do believe that LNC will take over the position of largest party of Kregon. The worst thing that could happen is that LDSP voters would turn to LPA."
The government is making arrangements for early elections as we speak.

The Great Step Forward?
March 4382

A shock went through political Lodamun today when Simon Villers, chairman of the Liberal Progressive Alliance, handed in a proposal to change the executive. His party suggests to make a division between Head of State and Head of Government. This system was abandoned almost 400 years ago.
The real shock would be that the other parties represented in the Presidium don't seem to oppose to the proposal. It is very likely that the Presidium will unanimously accept this change of law. Even LNC, who objected many times against the proposed form of executive, calling it undemocratic, would accept the proposal. Minister of Education and Culture Paulo Mrazni explains: "It might seem odd that my party chooses not to oppose to the proposition and might even support it. But there's a certain thought behind our behaviour. For starters, we do no longer wish to be the party that is said to be dictatorial, against freedom and liberties, and so on. We have been through quite some changes during the last few decades, and we are no longer the hard-line protectors of Nationalism. Eventhough, we still protect Lodamese Nationalism and urge all to choose the wise path of Nationalism, but we understand that one cannot be forced to be Nationalist. This feeling should grow within each person."
It seems that LNC has indeed lost some of the rather extremist characteristics from the former days.
"Secondly, we have had an extreme good cooperation with PLUP and wish to continue to do so for the benefits of Lodamun. During the last few years there was some kind of understanding with the LPA fraction, which happens to be the second party in Lodamun. Without even discussing the matter, I believe we all wish to cooperate to outline the future of our nation. Also, we should not forget LFP, which might be a small party at the time, but has great potential. Eventhough we refuse to call the proposed system democratic, we want to show to our fellow MPs and the people of Lodamun that we wish to give them the chance to elect their President first hand."
Again, LNC is promoting themselves as a party that listens to the people.
"A third reason is that we might rewrite history. This could be a major step for Lodamun, even on the international stage. Together with our partners we might seek some other nations to strengthen our ties. But again, stepping out of isolationism doesn't mean we will open our borders to just anyone. Rewriting history is remembering our history."
Vice-President Wolts said that this would be a special moment for Lodamun: "Whether it is good or bad, we cannot say just yet, but LNC is willing to give it a chance. We are confident in the opinion and the choice of the electorate. Together we will create a new Lodamun, where it is safe to live and where Lodamese Nationalism has a special place."

LFP made huge mistake
March 4334

Only holding 13 seats in the Presidium, one could call the Lodamun Freedom Party a small party, unimportant even. Kristof Wolts stated yesterday that LFP should be considered the strongest and most important fraction in the Presidium, but they have made one crucial mistake. A mistake which he considers to announce the beginning of the end for this particular party.
The last elections caused two blocks standing against each other, none being able to form a Cabinet. The LNC-PLUP block lacks 2 seats to get a majority, the LPA and NGPoL lack 12. This literally means that the decision is with LFP. It never was the meaning for LPA to ask LNC or PLUP for a coalition, while none of these parties had to rush to form a coalition, since all seats in Presidium were occupied and all Departments were manned.
Wolts: "We had a stable coalition and we had eager and integer politicians in the Presidium, which caused that we never were asking for the formation of a new Cabinet. We might no longer have had a majority, we still felt it wasn't our duty to make proposals. Maybe we should have."
LPA made sure to persuade the two other parties into coalition to break the might of the to then ruling parties. "Which was and is their upmost right. But LNC was thinking more of leaving the initiative to the real strong party in the Presidium: LFP. They are in a position to make claims, lots of claims, since the two major blocks are fighting somewhat of a private war. They could have made ridiculous claims, they could have played and lost. Yet, they never even played."
Wolts says that he and PLUP would have accepted LFP as a partner in their coalition, but not at all cost. If LFP wanted to play, they could have played a hard, yet fair game of poker: "With LPA in the lead to break up the coalition, everyone knew they needed the 13 seats of LFP, with the chance of LFP being persuaded by PLUP or LNC. I'm pretty sure that LPA would eagerly have accepted the LFP claim for the Office of Prime Minister. Now they seemed to be happy with two Departments, of which one is a very difficult Department. One needs to handle the Agricultural department with a certain subtility, and with the budget proposal that is currently being presented to the Presidium, we fear that LFP has signed its own death warrant."

Farmers bid Governor for action
August 15, 4334

Farmers from across Kregon have assembled in Fort Kregon today to ask the Governor to address the Presidium. They feel that the lowering of the Agricultural budget will cause a lot of problems in their Province. Many farmers have been witnessing financial issues, part of them still have difficulties in maintaining their farms.
Thousands of farmers united in a front in order to put pressure on politics. Since the Minister of Finance proposed a shift in the nation's expenses, they fear they will suffer massively for the coming years. There were no riots reported today, the farmers and sympathisers behaved themselves. They urged the Governor of Kregon to speak to the Presidium and to express their fears and problems. Some farmers stated to be desperate and promised actions if this proposal passes.

Wolts to lead angry farmers
December, 4335

Kristof Wolts, who recently resigned as Representative of the Lodamese Nationalist Committee, has moved to Kregon. He has spoken to the farmer community that is worried about their future. He offered to support their cause and has been promoted to spokesman of the farmer's union.
The organisation United Farmers of Kregon was created last month after months of doubt, insecurity and uncertainty about the fate of Kregonese agriculture.
Kristof Wolts declared that he always felt the deepest feelings of sympathy with the farmers of the nations agricultural Province. He has witnessed their problems while in Presidium and has tried to support them through political aid. The farmers seem really grateful for this support and have expressed their deepest feelings of respect and gratitude for the former vice-President. They hope that his political influence, eventhough resigned, will help their cause.
Meanwhile LNC has organized a fund where their supporters can donate money and goods to help the farming communities of Kregon. Since there was some criticism elsewhere in Lodamun the party is thinking to expand this charity to all farmers in need across the whole of Lodamun.
Newly elected Representative Annie Wolts has promised to try and change the future of the farmers in a political way.
United Farmers of Kregon has over 7000 members in just a couple of weeks of time. They will try to change their current situation by forming a cooperative system for buying and selling. Former Minister of Finance Karsten Kraft has said to also commit himself to the organisation.

Wolts devestated
March 2, 4337

Presidential candidate for LNC Kristof Wolts is devastated by the result of the elections yesterday. He was disappointed in the votes his party got in Kregon, yet he states to be glad that a large amount of votes went to UDHFU, a party with important supporters of the farmer community in Kregon. Wolts announced not to be involved in politics any further. He will continue his tasks as UFK spokesman.
"I am very disappointed. I really thought I had a chance on winning the Presidentials. For what it is worth: I have the deepest respect for Mr. Takon and I believe he will be a very good President. When we take a look at the overall result of the election, we can state that the current coalition is broken, which opens perspectives." Kristof Wolts looked tired, exhausted even. These final words was his official goodbye. He retires from politics completely.
His daughter Annie, currently Representative of the party, took some time to talk to her father and comfort him. She will also propose a new coalition to the Presidium: "As opposition parties, both PLUP and LNC lost a lot of seats in the Presidium. Yet we are confident that UDHFU will grant us its cooperation and support, which gives us a majority in Presidium. We are still talking to the parties represented in Presidium, but we can already say that LNC insists on holding the two traditional departments and also has an option for the position of Prime Minister."

Cabinet Passed Despite Presidium Vacancy
NGPoL demands early elections, citing constitutional violation
June 4, 4348

The Lodamese Nationalist Committee and Pro Lodamunese Unitarian Party Coalition has voted on a new Cabinet, despite there being ten seats in the Presidium that were vacant due to the departure of the Lodamun Freedom Party. New Green Party of Lodamun Chairman Lester Horon pointed out to the legislative body that doing this without first holding an early election to fill the vacancy was in direct violation of Article 7, Subsection 5 of the Lodamese Constitution(http://classic.particracy.net/viewbill. ... lid=510476). Speaking for the New Green Party of Lodamun, Horon says that he will not recognize the cabinet that was voted on and demands that early elections be held as soon as possible in accordance of Article 7 Subsection 5 of the nation's constitution.

"We will only recognize a cabinet that is voted on in accordance to the law of the land! We, as well as the LNC and others, have followed this law since its inception 159 years ago and there is no reason we should stop following it now! Even a small vacancy shows that there is a part of our nation that is not being represented and we cannot have that!"

Horon put forth a motion in the Presidium for early elections, hoping that the issue be resolved as soon as possible.
