OOC:

You understood, and made it apparent that you understood, that your characters were breaking the law. Hence you have consented to the risk of them being given consequences.

The Vice Chairman you said came to check over your forces, which is when the operation was carried out.

BREAKING: Berisha Will Not Seek Reelection Following Loss of Legislative Majority
- Berisha says Second Term will be his last despite increasing his majority
- Also plans to step down as Leader of the Party in order for a new successor to be found
- Says that despite youth, the Role is "overtly exhausting"
- Executive Committee said to be "disappointed" at failure to retain majority


The President has successfully won a second term in Office, increasing his margin of victory, although only slightly, to over 54% of the popular vote. Despite this, he has said that he will not run again, and will retire from politics all together, despite only being 32. Expressing his disappointment at the loss of the Reform Party's majority in the Grand National Assembly, Berisha said that the party needed fresh direction in order to cement a majority over its conservative opposition. He also suggested that he would look to pass legislation in what will be his last legislative term to create a Term Limit of 3 terms in order to maintain a sensible balance of power.

It was an extraordinary move, made by a man that has monopolised Kalopian politics for the last 8 years. Malan Berisha, who reformed the party and led it to the impressive majority of 4325, was believed to have many years left ahead of him, being very respected within the party, and having a very loyal inner-circle that made it difficult for him to lose power easily. Despite this, there are reports that the infamous Executive Committee were "less than impressed" at the loss of the legislative majority, and that several unnamed members of this illusive group were considering possible leadership bids.

This is something that the President has strongly denied. In a statement released by the Presidential Office, Berisha said that it was his own decision not to continue his career, and that the decision was taken due to the burden pressed upon him as a result of his position. Whilst he maintained that he loved his job, he said that it was necessary for the Party to take a new direction in order to "guarantee a Reform Party majority, and maintain liberalism, neoliberalism, and neolibertarianism within Kalopia."

The President also suggested that he would seek to pass legislation that entered a term limit into the Constitution. He said he wished to make it his priority so that no one person to press their agenda too much into Kalopian politics. Admitting that he felt that Reform Party policy was too molded around his views, Berisha said he hoped that a change in the Constitution would allow a "sensible" power dynamic in the country, that allowed the people and political organisations to keep the executive "in check."

Despite it being early days, there have already been rumours regarding who will be chosen as the next leader of the Reform Party. The current Prime Minister is expected to put is hat into the ring, calling for even greater social reform, and a crackdown on "radical" socially conservative political organisations. He is however, not overly popular within the party, and isn't expected to take the top job. Another option would be current Vice-President, Dritush Mala, although his close alignment to Berisha's politics may not make him what the doctor ordered.

The more socially conservative, Musa Kongoli is expected to run. The current Defence Minister, although true to the Reform Party's neolibertarian position, disagrees with the "damaging" mass deregulation that has been undertaken by Kaleci's government, and would be a more moderate voice at the table in regards to relationships with other parties. The final "big-name" candidate is Milo Minosasa. The leader of the Reform Party's paramilitary wing, he would definitely be the radical choice, not afraid in calling himself a minarchist, and lamenting the other parties for their "reprehensible hating of the gays." Currently the only candidate to have confirmed his selection, Minosasa would wish to take Kalopia to a stage even beyond the Corporate Anarchic Society of the late 42nd, and early 43rd centuries.

BREAKING: Prime Minister and VP Say They Won't Stand
- Taulant Kaleci and Dritush Mala both declare they have no intention of running for the leadership
- Defence Minister Kongoli puts name into the ring, along with Al-Najd Senator, Azmi el-Wahab
- Pull outs sees Minosasa become bookies favourite for job
- Added dynamic as Turjak Nationalists return to Kalopian Politics


Image
The current favourite, Milo Minosasa would have a flamboyant and radical leadership style.

Radical minarchist, Milo Minosasa has become the new favourite to win the leadership of the Reform Party as both the Prime Minister, and the Vice President, announced they would not be making a leadership bid. The almost anarchical Minosasa will be up against the current Defence Minister, Musa Kongoli, as well as Al-Najd Senator, Azmi el-Wahab. The other entrants in the seven name list include Trade & Industry Minister, Kairos Kairis; Siphina Assembly Member, Almasa Muratovic; Minosasa Assembly Member, Ajax Costa; and former Mayor of Helios, turned Assembly Member in Al-Najd, Kassia Hellas.

An added dynamic to this election will be the return of the SDVP to Kalopia on which the Reform Party was formed to counter its Turjakisation of Kalopia. Although the anti-Turjak sentiment has gone cold since its refocusing upon liberalism, the Turjak nationalist party may just rekindle old hatreds. Already, Kairis has assured the party that he would ban the proprietors of the Junta from the Grand National Assembly, whilst Minosasa has told the press that he had no qualms in using violence against "those puny Turjaks."

The contestants have clashed on how they would take the Reform Party forward. The two leading candidates, Kongoli and Minosasa have clashed on the issue of gambling, one of the more controversial deregulations that the Reform Party pushed through during its three year majority. Milo Minasosa said that the government had "absolutely zero right" to tell individuals how to spend their money. However, Kongoli said that the government had a duty to provide a limited safety net, and that meant regulating gambling.

A debate has been scheduled in for next month, with the election taking place in January of 4329.

BREAKING: Milo Minosasa Calls Solentia a "Breeding Pot of Alt-Right Idiots"
- Reform Party Leadership Candidate says Solentia will continue to breed fascism due to its nature
- Says that a Minosasa Administration would "put Solentia in its rightful place"
- T&I Minister Calls "Whacky Milo" "insane"


Image
Leadership candidate, Milo Minosasa spoke on national TV about the rise of fascism in Solentia.

In a remarkably undiplomatic move, the favourite for the Reform Party top job, Milo Minosasa, has called Solentia a "breeding pot of alt-right idiots." Speaking of the Kalopian News TV Program, Minosasa said that it was necessary to fight fire with fire, and speak to the fascists in the only language they understand: violence. He also warned that the same dangerous ideology was rife in Kalopia, and that it would be his job to wipe it out.

The current leader of the Children of the Reform Party Paramilitary was in a typically flamboyant mood, using his appearance on prime time television to cut into the new FNB-National Conservative Administration in Solentia. When asked what he would do differently to Berisha were he leader, Minosasa told the country that he would "put Solentia in its rightful place." Characterising Kalopia's neighbours as a oppressive hellhole, he at the same time criticised the move made by former President Laudenslager to attempt to ban the FNB, saying they were no better than the self-proclaimed fascists.

"I don't care if they flip on the other side of the border," Minosasa said boisterously:

In my eyes, they have a Senate filled with communists and fascists. The communists are hellbent on banning the fascists, and the fascists are hellbent on banning the communists. The reality is that Solentia is just a breeding pot of alt-right idiots, with some communists sprinkled in as seasoning to make it interesting. None of them have a clue about running a country, and all they want to do is spread violence wherever they go.

Fundamentally, the FNB are self-obsessed, over regulatory blockheads, who only care about their overly aggressive foreign policy goals. Meanwhile the former President's party, the Solentian Secularist and Reality Party are also just a communion of blockheads, who want to use fascist legislation to ban a fascist party. Either way, its a lose lose for the people of Solentia.

I would go in there and put the country back into its rightful place. And that means threatening and following up on military action - kinda like what the National Unity Government tried to do. Kalopia has a duty to the people of Solentia to give them a democratic and reasonable government. To be honest even the Ultra Nationalists would be able to run Solentia better than the current losers in power.


However, rival in the Reform Party Leadership Race, and current Trade & Industry Minister, Kairos Kairis, responded by calling Milo Minosasa "whacky" and "insane." Speaking on a radio show, Kairis said:

I think we can all agree that whacky Milo doesn't stand with the rest of the Reform Party regarding policy. He is just an insane individual, using this opportunity to spread some insane ideas of his. I wouldn't expect this to catch on, and I am certain that the Reform Party members will be rational when it comes to decide who should be their next leader.


Despite bold words from the Minister, Minosasa currently holds an eight point lead in the race for the leadership. Heading up Kongoli with 34 points to 26, it appears Reform Party members have been drawn to his no-nonsense, straight-up style of politics.

Current Polling for the Leadership of the Reform Party

Milo Minosasa: 34%
Musa Kongoli: 26%
Kassia Hellas: 11%
Kairos Kairis: 10%
Azmi el-Wahab: 5%
Ajax Costa: 2%
Almasa Muratovic: 2%
Undecided: 10%

BREAKING: Leadership Candidates Unite Over Turjak "Threat"
- Minosasa refuses to use Turjak name for the Vatan Partisi, using Siphinan variant
- Kongoli says that Prime Minister should mobilise military
- Ajax Costa suggests mass deportation "could be a possibility"


Image
Musa Kongoli, who is closing in on Milo Minosasa, proposed the mobilisation of the military to deal with Turjak "threat."

Who would have thought that the runners for the Leadership of the Reform Party could agree on anything? However, at a debate held at the party's headquarters in Siphina, each and every candidate condemned the Homeland Party, and praised the Prime Minister's hard line approach against the Turjak nationalists. In the main debate before the election, Kongoli had a strong night, ramming home the effects of not backing the Solentian government in terms of trade. Minosasa focused upon social liberties, promising he would "knock a nail into the head of any homophobe in the country." The other candidates also clashed on economic policy, as well as conduct within the Grand National Assembly.

The Turjak nationalist question, brought up by an audience member brought to an end a long round of bickering. In a remarkable turn of events, each candidate queued up to have their turn at laying into the newly founded party. The most radical language came not from Milo Minosasa, although he did only refer to the Vatan Partisi using the Siphinan translation, Partia e Atdheut, and called for the death penalty for the leader, Haşim Koç for treason, but from Ajax Costa, who stated that the mass deportation of Turjaks "could be a possibility." Meanwhile, Musa Kongoli said that the military should "100% be an option to prevent [the Vatan Partisi] from becoming too radical and aggressive."

In other issues, consensus was less prevalent, with Kongoli and Minosasa clashing on the Solentia Question. Musa Kongoli repeatedly stated the benefits of a healthy trade relationship with Kalopia's neighbours. Milo Minosasa hit back, however, arguing that no nation who put tolls on other nations vehicles could be described as having a healthy trade relationship with anyone. The pair's closest rival, Kassia Hellas, pointed Minosasa to the latest reports that showed the change in stance from the FNB and encouraged him to "tone down the aggression."

The minarchist Minosasa was strongest when it came to social issues. Speaking on homosexuality, and the opposition faced by the Reform Party in the Grand National Assembly, he said that he would "knock a nail into the head of any homophobe in the country," and said that the Ultra Nationalists presented an agenda "combined from Kalopia's two worst periods in the last century - the Socialist Vanguard, and the Thallerist Regime." Kongoli, who has focused his position on mending relationships with the other parties, was left speechless at one point in the debate, after Minosasa accused him of being no better than the "transphobic, homophobic, and blockheaded individuals" that the Reform Party were meant to be fighting.

Following a poll taken at the end of the debate, both Minosasa and Kongoli gained, with Kongoli closing the gap to just three points. Support for Muratovic was wiped out, which has led to him pulling out of the race, whilst Kairis has also dropped out following the debate as he fell behind both el-Wahab, and Costa, who has moved up to third. It appears most of the membership have made their mind up, with only 4% saying that they were undecided.

Current Polling for the Leadership of the Reform Party

Milo Minosasa: 40%
Musa Kongoli: 37%
Ajax Costa: 11%
Kassia Hellas: 6%
Azmi el-Wahab: 2%
Undecided: 4%

BREAKING: Controversial Minosasa Claims the Leadership Race
- Pulls clear from Kongoli following Kaleci-Gate Controversy
- Poll suggests that two-thirds of PR/KM/RP members back action against Turjaks
- Compares 4307-4314 Junta with the Wantuni Human Rights Crisis

Image
The new leader of the Reform Party, Milo Minosasa.

Milo Minosasa has won the race to become the next leader of the Reform Party. Beating Musa Kongoli by an eight point lead, Minosasa has promised to deal with the Turjak threat imminently. Lamenting the President's decision to rescind the former Prime Minister's leadership, and hence force his resignation, Minosasa said he would work together with the other parties to prevent Turjak radicalism exploding. He also took the opportunity to blast the Jakanian government for "sticking their noses in other people's affairs," but denied that Turjak representation would be taken away from them.

It appeared that Musa Kongoli was drawing closer and closer in, as Milo Minosasa's line on Solentia was disliked by many within the party. However, "Kaleci-Gate" seems to have pushed party membership opinion over to the minarchist's side. Speaking to the press, one member described the President's intervention "disappointing," although he also called Kaleci "unwise" for his rash behaviour in the Grand National Assembly.

Musa Kongoli topped the Assembly Member vote, with 71 of the Reform Party parliamentarians backing the former Defence Minister. Minosasa fell further back, with just 40 votes, beating Kassia Hellas to the wider membership vote by just 9. Two votes then went to Al-Najd AM, Azmi el-Wahab, with just one going to Ajax Costa. However, Minosasa's popularity amongst the wider membership shone through as he comfortably beat Kongoli in the Second Round. Despite the appearance that Kongoli was closing the gap, it appears that Minosasa held enough support to pull through with 54% of the vote.

As leader, he has taken the opportunity to maneuver political ally Miralem Kusturica into the role of Parliamentary Leader. Also in favour of mass deregulation, his former role as Environment & Tourism Minister displayed him as perhaps one of the more extreme members when on the matter of regulation. Musa Kongoli has been positioned as Deputy Leader, in order to appeal to voters from other parties.

Speaking in at the Headquarters of the Party, Milo Minosasa said that he would not take the Turjak threat lightly, warning Jakania that any aggression would result in "consequences."

The Foreign Minister has had a communication from the new Jakanian government. That is no secret. She has passed it on to me as the new head of the Reform Party, and it says this: "As a minority, the Kalopian Turjaks have a right to self-determination and political representation." Now here is my issue with that. Of course they have the right to self-determination and political representation should they have a citizenship. However, I believe the position we have to take is that they are not inherently Kalopian by nationality, and are merely immigrants who have failed to fully integrate into Kalopian society. The very term Kalopian Turjak is a contradiction.

What I love about Kalopian society is its diversity. A wonderful mixture of ethnically Kalopi-Siphinan and ethnically Majatran really makes us an unique nation in Terra. However, we cannot pretend that Turjaks are fundamental Kalopians. Nor can we pretend that they are not in fact, for the main part, Jakanian. So when the Jakanian President talks about "spill over of potential instability" we can thank his country for starting this instability in the first place.

Let us remind ourselves about the History of Kalopia. The dictator, Atatürcak, and I don't think anyone can deny his authoritarian tendencies, was not a nice person, and persecuted the Majatran and Kalopi-Siphinan ethnic groups. Further, during the Junta of 4307-14, the very same Partia e Atdheut, persecuted Siphinans and Kalopians like a no other time since the mass genocide of the Wantuni Hegemony. The Turjaks are the enemies of the Kalopians, and not our friends. Whilst we shall allow them to remain in our nation, and take part in our political processes, I am certain that no Turjak Nationalist party will gain a majority in the Grand National Assembly, although I fear that they may even still revert to violence.

But, as the Presidential Candidate of the Reform Party in 4331, I will be working closely with the President, and encouraging him to respond to this Jakanian show of aggression. I would also hope that the President would be willing to discuss with the Defence Minister appropriate border force increases at the Jakanian border to prevent anything opportunistic occurring from the other side of the border.

BREAKING: Minosasa Blasts Ultra Nationalists for Party Description "Disease" Comment
- Hypocrisy of the Ultra Nationalists not to be understated says Minosasa
- Discovery comes just days after UNPK Attacks Reform Party for being "Dictatorial"
- Minosasa says that the country would be better off if UPNK disbanded


The Leader of the Reform Party has heavily criticised the Ultra Nationalists for their hypocrisy in a press conference made alongside the new Prime Minister, Miralem Kusturica, and the new Deputy Leader of the Reform Party, Musa Kongoli. Speaking in front of the press, he presented the UPNK's own description of themselves which states: "The UNPK is dedicated to eradicating the existence of the reform party in our nation's politics for they are disease that needs to be cured." This comes just days after the UNPK claimed the Reform Party were doing the same thing to the Turjak Nationalists. Kusturica also commented on the UNPK comment: "Also please keep future party disputes mostly private only publicly sharing them if they will effect all of Kalopia," saying that the leader of the largest Party in Kalopia effects the "whole damn country."

In a very fiery mood, Minosasa told the press that the Ultra Nationalists are just "puppets of the Turjaks" and said that they should "win some more seats" before trying to square up with the most popular party in the country.

The hypocrisy is unreal. They claim we are trying to crush opposition? And then we find that they seek to eradicate us and view us as a disease? This is why people hate politicians. People like the Ultra Nationalists give us lot a bad name. It is unacceptable, and the Reform Party tell them in no uncertain terms, that they will remove it from their party description.

What these idiots fail to understand, is that the Reform Party won the elections. We are the people's favourite party. The Ultra Nationalists are tiny in comparison to us. This party, who is undemocratic to the extreme - one wanting to eradicate another party, and two not producing any legislation, and hence leaving their voter base abandoned - are failing the people. That, I believe is unacceptable, and distasteful, and I would hope they pull their act together before commenting on another party. They could at least win some seats. To be honest, it might just be better if they disbanded.


Also at the Press Conference, the Prime Minister said that the comment regarding private disputes was petty and unneeded:

Look. The Reform Party is the largest party in Kalopia. At the end of the day, the leader of this party is the most powerful person in the country.
We are the Party of the Kalopians. The Party of the Siphinans. The Party of the Majatrans. The Party of the Istochniaks. Who are they the Party of? Exactly - no one. Now when we are talking about the most important Leadership Election in the country since who knows when, probably since the Communist rule 100 years ago, you don't call it a party dispute. And if he is not aware, dispute or not, it effects the whole of Kalopia.

BREAKING: PM Says Jakania is Asking For War
- PM Miralem Kusturica warns Jakania that more border controls may constitute to conflict
- Says they are welcome to take as many Turjaks as they want
- However, the President calls upon his own Party to "level down the rhetoric"


Image
Prime Minister, Miralem Kusturica, came down harshly against the Jakanian Government.

The Prime Minister, Miralem Kusturica issued a strong warning today against the Jakanian Government, as he called them to remove the newly deployed border troops, and tone down the aggression. Emphasising that Turjaks would maintain their rights to vote under the assumption that they were Kalopian Citizens, Kusturica also said any Turjak was free to return to their homeland across the border. However, the President, Malan Berisha, who, in the eyes of Reform Party members, has become soft during his last term as President, condemned his own party, calling for them to "level down the rhetoric."

In what was Kusturica's first major individual speech as Prime Minister, he attacked the "dangerous" and "unprovoked" actions of Jakania. He blamed Jakania for unnecessary aggression, and reminded them that the Reform Party had already given assurances that Turjaks would be allowed to take part in the political process. He yet again repeated the party's adopted position that Turjaks are not native to Kalopia, and hence would be viewed as immigrants, but maintained that so long as they had citizenship, this would not infringe upon their rights. However, he did say that any Turjak would be "welcome" and "encouraged" by the Government to move back over the border to Jakania.

He also took the opportunity to take credit for the Jakanian President's election. "If it were not for the rightful position that we take here in Kalopia, the President in Jakania would not have had a platform to run on for the election. It is thanks to the Reform Party that he has the ability to oppose us currently. Should he continue to use this prerogative as Jakanian President, given to him by the Reform Party, to place troops at the border in a dangerous, and unprovoked manner, he will find himself having to deal with Kalopia."

Kusturica also took the opportunity to brag about Kalopia's success regarding the Solentia Border Wall Crisis. Claiming that the two nations now had amicable relations, he said that Jakania may well be heading down the same path - collapse followed by a reliance on Kalopia. "It is quite clear," Kusturica said, "That Jakania do not want this to happen. The Turjaks are proud people - perhaps too proud - and that will result in them backing down as soon as they see that their games will not work on us."

The Prime Minister also announced plans to bring a bill to the House in order to increase border control at the Jakanian border. He encouraged all paramilitaries to get involved, and "help the cause," in particular calling upon the KWIS and the Ultra Nationalists to do "as good a job" at maintaining Kalopia's integrity as they did during the Solentian Border Wall Crisis.

Further tensions within Kalopia itself are a given. With the Name Change Bill being passed, with the support of the Ultra Nationalists, the law now recognises Siphinan, Majatran, Kalopian, and Istochniak variants of the Great Kalopian Republic as Official Names of Kalopia. Whilst the Homeland Party claim this infringes on the minority rights of the Turjaks, the Reform Party maintain that, as a non-native ethnicity there is no reason for Kalopia to adopt a foreign language as an official language.

However, out-going President, Malan Berisha has called for his party to "level down the rhetoric" in order to prevent anything "overtly radical" happening. He said that his experience of the National Unity Cabinet shaped his views today. He reflected on his shift in view regarding Majatrans in Kalopia. "Just a few years ago, people would have laughed if someone said that a Majatran would run in a Reform Party Leadership Election and then be picked as a Spokesperson for the party. However, we have changed, and come to recognise the strengths of these people; perhaps the current leadership might do the same with the Turjaks." He ended with a memorable quote, saying, "Sometimes the people you think you hate actually turn out to be alright."

Whichever viewpoint is right, or if neither are, there will certainly be a lot more debate surrounding the spout between the Turjak Nationalists and the Reform Party. The next elections will provide an insight over public opinion regarding the matter, but until then, we can only speculate.

BREAKING: Minosasa Now President, as PR/KM/RP Win All 5 Regions in Legislative Election
- Reform Party loses 12 seats but successfully withstands return of Turjak, Homeland Party
- Minosasa wins 56-44 despite KWIS Candidate having support from both the UPNK and the Homeland Party
- President says the election proves public opinion on Jakania and the Turjak minority


Image
New President, Milo Minosasa, took the opportunity to once again call for talks between Kalopia and Jakania.

Milo Minosasa has comfortably claimed the Presidency, taking over from the now retired Malan Berisha, as the Reform Party performed better than expected in the elections, raking home 133 seats. Despite the reemergence of the Homeland Party, who were expected to significantly close the gap on the party who has held the Presidency for almost a decade now, the Reform Party won a plurality in all five regions - including Minosasa, which had eluded them for the past nine years. The new President said that the voters had demonstrated to the international community what Kalopia wanted, and that it would be his duty to fulfill that as their elected representative.

Most pollsters had expected the Reform Party to maintain a stable lead within the Grand National Assembly, but with large losses of thirty plus seats. This has not materialised, as the Homeland Party mainly took support from a mixture of the Knowledgeable and Wise Imam Society and the UPNK as they both lost other 20 seats. The UPNK can, however, be pleased that they have managed to follow the general trend of recent elections, and match the pollsters' predictions, in overtaking the KWIS in the legislature.

The Reform Party may be the happiest tonight, not at defeating the Turjak party, nor retaining the Presidency, but rather gaining a clean sweep of regions, adding the elusive Minosasa to their repertoire, following the region falling to the KWIS for over a decade. The KWIS fell apart in Minosasa finishing behind all the other competitors, and failed to finish above the Reform Party, the UPNK, or the Homeland Party in any region. The Ultra Nationalists performed well in Siphina, their usual hunting grounds, but were unable to overtake the Reform Party. Meanwhile, the Reform Party gained majorities in both Al-Najd and Seshold, as they have done since their reformation in 4320.

Minosasa addressed large crowds cheering as he thanked all the voters who chose the Reform Party. He said that the people had provided Kalopia with an agenda, and that their opinion regarding recent "controversy" had now been "fully established." He said that the international community should take note that voters refused the choice to vote for the Homeland Party, and said that the Kalopian voters had decided he was the best man for the job.

Thank you! Everyone. Thank you so much for your support in this election. Tonight was the most important night for a long time. The results that are being flashed over millions of TV screens in and out of Kalopia say this: That Kalopians have made their position quite clear. That Kalopians have decided that they do not want a Government that priorities a select few, based upon ethnicity, but rather a government that focuses on everyone. That is what they have voted for the Reform Party, and that is what we will now give them.

I want to use this opportunity to, yet again, extend a hand of friendship to our Turjak neighbours. I understand that this is the result they might not have wanted, but it is what they have got, and I would hope they will be willing to work with My Administration in order to de-escalate all this border troop melarchy. Further, I would hope that their aggression will begin to calm down, as they realise that the Homeland Party had a fair crack at the whip this election, but were just not good enough.

The Prime Minister warned Deltaria that Kalopia was used to standing up to local bullies, and would easily deal with Deltarian military action.

Prime Minister, Miralem Kusturica, has denied that any minister had involvement in the assassinations of both the Czar of Deltaria, and his brother, and said that the Deltarians were "prone" to lie, and that their claims were unjustified and unsupported. He also lashed back at Deltarian threats of violence, saying that Kalopia had a proven track record at standing up to aggressive bullies in the area, and wasn't going to be phased by "yet another power-obsessed maniac".

It appears the new Kalopian Government can get no rest bite, fighting battles on three fronts; the Jakania Crisis, domestic squabbling, and now this. It this latest controversy the Deltarians have accused members of the Government of being involved in the assassination of the Czar, Norbert, and his brother Farkas. This is a claim that all cabinet ministers strongly deny. Reminding Deltaria that Kalopia "was a bit busy right now," Kusturica defended all of his Cabinet, calling them the best politicians in Majatra, and reiterating that Kalopia was an open, democratic nation that adhered to international expectations.

Kusturica made it very clear that no detectives would have permission to enter the nation, and that a team of Kalopian detectives would instead be tasked to investigate into the matter. Arguing that the Deltarians would be entering with a set objective of villifying Kalopia, rather than focusing on the facts, he said any operation conducted by Kalopia's neigbours would be biased, and would "produce results that do not match the reality of the situation." He claimed that Deltaria had an agenda, and were simply "making things up again," in attempt to gain greater regional power.

He also attacked Deltaria harshly for the new Czar's comments on military action. Speaking passionately about how they stood up to "aggressors" Solentia and Jakania, he told Deltaria that "Kalopia has a proven track record when it comes to dealing with power-obsessed, maniacal bullies in the local area. Deltaria are not the first, and most likely won't be the last to attempt to subordinate Kalopia. Like all the others, however, they will not succeed." He pointed to the situation of the Jakanian border currently, saying that Kalopia had the power to "wipe out" any attack that Jakania might throw at them.

"We are used to, through the Jakania situation, dealing with nations who might do anything at any time. We have the systems in place at every single part of the Kalopian border to prevent rogue nations attempting to take advantage of Kalopia. Just as we have toughened up with the Jakanians, so we will stand squarely up to Deltaria. Any talk of military action will be viewed as provocative, war mongering, behaviour, and the Kalopian Government will respond appropriately to it."
