NEW LEADER OF THE SOCIALIST REPUBLICAN PARTY CHOSEN FOLLOWING CHANGE OF GOVERNMENT

Tamrat Iskinder intends to carry on the work of former Chief Minister Zlatan Temelkido.

Former civil rights lawyer Tamrat Iskinder has replaced Zlatan Temelkido as the leader of Zardugal's main left wing party after a change of government.

Despite remaining the largest party in the National Assembly, the Socialist Republicans found themselves out in the cold after a coalition of pro-capitalist parties took control following the 4331 election.

Former Chief Minister Temelkido took it as his cue to step down prompting a leadership battle in early 4332.

Mr Iskinder, a Mallan ethnic, and a lawyer of 15 years standing, won the race against former Foreign Minister Oskari Brantini.

Mr Temelkido, who had been in government for eight years, will remain as the Co-Chair of the Socialist International movement and has pledged to continue to fight for stability in Majatra and beyond.

In 4330, he was awarded the World Peace Award of Ataraxia for his work in ridding his country of nuclear weapons.

WHERE'S OUR GOVERNMENT? ASKS LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION

Image
Still waiting to vote... Tamrat Iskinder is frustrated over lack of government activity.

Two years after the national assembly election of 4331 and the pro-capitalist government of Zardugal has certainly been noticeable by its absence.

No new policies or treaties have been proposed by the People's Party-led Administration and no budgetary or taxation announcements, leading to anger from the opposition.

"What the hell are they doing?" said Tamrat Iskinder, who heads up the Socialist Republican Party. "We may as well have cadavers in charge of the country - there'd be more life in corpses that the current Chief Minister and his cabinet.

"It is a bittersweet situation in many ways. They are not amending or repealing the socialist policies we implemented whilst in power but at the same time they are not providing any governance at all for this nation.

"We need to be moving forward not standing still. A stagnant Zardugal is good for no one - I just hope the electorate take note and reward this apathy by voting against the government parties at the next election."

Iskinder also said his party would be releasing its new manifesto very soon. He added: "It combines progressive, social policies with plans for a mixed economy, which gives the state control of essential services while recognising the need for a strong private sector too."

SUPER PORT PROVIDES MAJOR BOOST FOR ZARDIC'S IMPORT AND EXPORT ECONOMY
19 October 4334

A new cargo storage zone at the expanded Kostandia Bay port.

A major new port expansion, which will boost Zardugal's capacity to accommodate more of the world's biggest container ships, has been completed.

The extension to facilities at Konstandia on the Verand Ocean has involved the construction of several new deep water berths on the main West Quay as well as the creation of 75,000 cubic metres of new storage space to cope with an upturn in cargo imports and exports.

The project - called Kostandia Super Port - was commissioned by the previous socialist-led government and has cost around 5 bililon Zars and taken seven years to complete.

Run by the Kostandian Bay Maritime Company (KBMC), the port is one of the biggest in Western Majatra, employs tens of thousands of people and is 51 per cent owned by the Zardic government. The expansive bay is also the home to Zardugal's main shipbuilding yard and naval base.

A second multi-million Zars project to extend port facilities on Lake Majatra, on the outskirts of the city of Limenstomo, is set to be completed by March 4336.

ZARDIC-COBURAN ROW DEVELOPS OVER 'INCOMPETENT' AND 'RACIST' TREATY

Politicians accuse Zardic Foreign Minister of peddling Augustan supremacist policy

4 April 4337

Image
People from Mallan communities in south-west Zardugal protest over government proposals to establish an Augustan union.

Growing concerns over attempts to revive the Augustan Empire in western Majatra have led to a top-level diplomatic row between Zardugal and neighbouring Cobura.

There have been repeated calls for the Zardic Foreign Minister Gerdina Hicona to resign after a controversial proposal to create a political union between the two nations backfired dramatically.

Opposition parties in Zardugal have been joined by the governing coalition in Cobura in condemning the move, which is seen as a step towards Augustan supremacy in the region.

The Governor-General of Cobura Amoun Khairēmōn branded the proposed treaty as a "nightmare" while Ali Azmera Melos, Prime Minister of the United Governorates said it was a "racist violation of national sovereignty".

In Zardugal, both the Socialisma Respubliko Partio and Klara Sablo - Populara Movada branded the move as incompetent and called for the Foreign Minister to resign over the diplomatic faux pas.

Tamrat Iskinder, Leader of the Opposition, said: "Minister Hicona must go now for the sake our our country and our international reputation. The lack of common sense in making this proposal is truly gargantuan. It also underlines the unsavoury supremacist undertones of the Minister's party (the Sankta Partio de Renaskiĝo) and demonstrates a clear lack of ability to act on the world stage. I feel I must apologise on behalf of my nation to the government of Cobura and millions of my own people who are threatened by this. "

However, despite the outrage, Minister Hicona refused to stand down and said the backlash to the treaty of union was "completely unnecessary."

Mr Iskinder said: "If the minister will not stand down it is up to the Chief Minister to force the resignation; either way, if the change is not made quickly the rift with Cobura may widen."

The row led to protests in many parts of south-western Zardugal, which is home to many ethnic groups who were historically persecuted under the old Augustan Empire.

Zardic Executive Military

On November 8th of 4353, "Executive Military Act" (http://classic.particracy.net/viewbill. ... lid=559148) was passed in National Assembly. This act gave the President and Ministry of Defense control over there own special military force known as the Executive Military. The Executive Military is broken up into three main divisions. The First Division (White Guard), the Second Division (Great Golden Guard), and the Third Division (Black Guard/Elite Police).

The First Division: White Guard (Blanka Gvardio)

The White Guard are tasked with protecting the Head of State and the Minister of Defense. The White Guard also are used as symbols of Zardugal, they are used in national holidays like Republic Day. The are called "White" because the color represents the Head of State and imperial authority.

Image

The Second Division: Great Golden Guard (Granda Ora Gvardio)

The Great Golden Guard, abbreviated as GOG, are tasked with executing the will of the Head of State and Ministry of Defense. They are the largest division in the Executive Military. The GOG can be sent to deal with internal or foreign problems including but not limited to: espionage, counter-terrorism, military interventions, forceful interrogation, and propaganda. They are called "Gold" because the color represents the Augustan soldiers of ancient Majatran.

Image

The Third Division: Black Guard (Nigra Gvardio)

The Black Guard are tasked with researching new technologies and gathering information for the Ministry of Defense. They are the smallest division in the Executive Military, and are the secretive. The Black Guard also doubles as an police force, for this reason they are also called the Elite Police. The Black Guard also has several bases around Majatra and the Third World, mainly old bases that were abandoned during the independence of many former Zardic colonies. They are called "Black" because the color represents secrecy and authority.

Maksimuma Becomes Zardugal's Sole Defense Industry\

Image
September 15th, 4358

On September 12th of this year, Maksimuma buys out last competing companies in the defense industry, becoming Zardugal's only major assault weapon manufacturer. This is just a one byproduct of the unchecked rise of the Maksimuma company.

Ever since launching in 4265, Maksimuma has seen great success within Kostandia. Named the "Fastest Growing Company" by Fortuna in 4270.
After this boom in the 70s, Maksimuma began to expand outside its original demographic of hardware services into various other industries such as software, steel, energy, automotive, and telecommunications.

In 4335, the State Industries Act (http://classic.particracy.net/viewbill. ... lid=554435) sought to limit the control of Maksimuma with Zardugal. But this was very unpopular and soon was replaced by the 4341 Balanced Economy and Infrastructure Plan (http://classic.particracy.net/viewbill. ... lid=556099), which loosened control on Maksimuma.
But in 4353, the Industrial Freedom Act (http://classic.particracy.net/viewbill. ... lid=559303) gave Maksimuma once again free reign over the economy. Leading to the series of purchases Maksimuma is making today.

After the Industrial Freedom Act, Maksimuma purchased a total of thirty-eight different companies, the largest being only other major business within the Defense Industry, Marble Industries. Other notable businesses include: Silverman's Steel, GTM/GTF, Zardic Networks, Leaderboard, and KDM/KDF.
What does the future hold for Maksimuma?

It seems that the nobility of has returned!
With rising nationalist pride, interest in the affairs of the noble class has increased greatly within Zardugal.
The coronation of Vilhelmo Fenikso-Thaller was one of the most watched events, bolstering a view count of around 45 million viewers within the nation, and another 20 million in surrounding nations (mainly Cobura and Deltaria).

President Patro Kalo Takes Office

Image
Newly Elected Zardic President Patro Kalo

In an astounding first election appearance Patro Kalo, the founder and former Chairman of the Terran Information Group, Zardugal's most powerful and largest private intelligence firm, and current Chairman of the Zardic New Patriot Party, was elected President of the Republic of Zardugal in a second round contest against People's Party candidate Morris Damanio, and ending the long reigning SPR's grip on power.

In the National Assembly, the New Patriot Party came in a firm first place, gaining 170 seats and securing 2 State Governorships in Zardugal's infamously conservative south, a traditional power base for right leaning Parties in Zardugal.

President Kalo has promised to fufill his Party's promise to re-enact the Mozby Doctrine with all due haste and get Zardic defence and foreign policy back on track the moment his Cabinet has been confirmed by the Assembly; Kalo has pushed for a Coalition government with the People's Party, his chief Opposition, likely as a hope to retain his Pro-Republican agenda with few hiccups and beginning the long process of "de-thallerizing" the nation.

While few things are currently coming from the Presidential Palace in Belecco, within days of his election President Kalo announced his choice for Director of the Zardic National Security Organization, Zardugal's immensely powerful umbrella organization for intelligence, law enforce, security and defence. The Director of the ZNSO as the most powerful non-elected and non-Assembly appointed positions within the Zardic Government and Kalo's choice, Julia Calistro, herself a career black ops and intelligence officer, has indicated the new President's focus on rebuilding Zardic intelligence and security capabilities.

Calistro Announces Beginning of Anti-Corruption Campaign

Image
Zardic National Security Organization Director Julia Calistro
In a rare public press conference Zardugal's highest intelligence and security official, ZNSO DIrector Julia Calistro, has announced the commencement of a far reaching and sweeping anti-corruption campaign.

Our great and mighty Republic has been long poisoned from the inside out from entrenched corruption, buy offs and organizations that have worked above the law because of patrons within the government. That time is over; beginning today from executive order from the President we are beginning a full sweep of the government and its entites to root out corruption and cleanse the government and return the Republican Government to a true symbol of the people.


While Calistro would offer few details, its known that she has tasked the Federal Police Service's elite Special Investigation Unit, with the investigation and has begun a through investigation that many analysts are believing will end in numerous arrests, though cards are still beginning held very closely to the governments chest.

====================

President Kalo Purges Senior Leadership of Intelligence, Security, Law Enforcement and Military

Image
Zardic President Patro Kalo

The Kalo Administration has begun its term with sweeping changes to the highest levels of government with the President personally firing and replacing dozens of individuals in high level positions. Beginning with the appointment of Julia Calistro has the ZNSO Director President Kalo has directed his Ministers in his Cabinet to purging most of the senior level leadership of numerous agencies including the Federal Intelligence Agency, Federal Police Service, and numerous other law enforcement and intelligence organizations. The newly minted Minister of Foreign Affairs also recalled dozens of Ambassadors and Consuls from various diplomatic posting and replacing them with career diplomats and other non-partisian appointments intended to reinvigorate the Diplomatic Corps.

President Kalo also pushed his attention to one of the key government organs; replacing the last Chief of the Combined Defence Staff and replacing with Major General, now full General, Alexander Spiros, a note and ardent Republican and former member of the Zardic Airborne.

With the President shaking up senior leadership positions and Calistro's investigation starting from the bottom it would appear the Kalo Administration it trying in earnest to purge the government of pro-Monarchist sentiment and restore the Republic to the forefront, according to some theories from analysts. The President moving to break up monopolies, most notably to be affected should the Anti-Trust Act pass the Maksimuma Corporation, and dismantling the Executive Military, is further proof of President Kalo trying to erase the influence of the former long term government.
