Mori sworn in as Governor-General, calls for Crownlands to stay strong to defend Septembrist principles
June 4421

Kien, Hulstria - In a departure from the traditionally apolitical nature of such speeches, the newly-inaugurated Governor-General Karolu Mori has used his first address as the official representative of the Crowns of Hulstria and Gao-Soto to issue a strong call to defend Septembrist principles. In particular, the former Vize-Staatsminister called for the Crownlands to persevere in their sanctions against Ostland, which recently introduced a package of reforms of which he remained strongly critical. "The passage of policies in Ostland that retain a distinct resemblance to the darkest days between Hulstrians and Kunihito in the Crownlands remind us that what we share here in Hulstria and Gao-Soto is not self-evident. This idea that Kunihito are better off living in their own place instead of as equal partners and neighbours among their Hulstrian brothers and sisters, with an equal stake in the nation, is a backwards echo of apartheid. We put this behind us a millennium ago. It is our duty of example to all of Dovani that we remain strong alongside our neighbours in defence of those principles and a continent that belongs to all of us."

Observers are not surprised at Mori's departure from tradition. For one, Mori is known to be fiercely critical of the Ostland government's policies towards their Kunihito citizens. More importantly, however, opinion polls show that the deeply Septembrist Crownlands are generally behind the sanctions imposed on Ostland. As such, the Governor-General could have been said to have expressed a broadly bi-partisan opinion and he is unlikely to trouble the government or the Diet with it. Foreign Minister Hupold Michels confirmed this: "The Governor-General chooses his own words in keeping with his constitutional role. The government is fully committed to maintaining our support of Septembrist principles in Ostland and we are grateful for the support we have received from like-minded nations in Dovani and beyond."

Bürggraf Goddestreu elected to succeed Heumayr by acclamation
August 4421

The new HDV leader and Staatsminister, Severin Goddestreu, the Burgrave Goddestreu zu Alt-Kien, is advanced in age but not diminished in popularity

Kien, Hulstria - Despite rumours that he was most reluctant to put his name forward after Staatsminister Clemens Heumayr stood aside following the start of the HDV's fifth term in office, the HDV has unanimously elected Finance Minister Severin Goddestreu as its new leader and the Crownlands's new Staatsminister. At age 69, the architect of Hulstria and Gao-Soto's economic recovery becomes one of the oldest individuals ever to take office as leader of Hulstria and Gao-Soto's oldest extant party. "With such a large number of my colleagues retiring after a very long span as a ministry, I think we can say 'mission accomplished' where stability is concerned," said Goddestreu. "Our next mission is to avoid that stability turning into lethargy. Which is why it's very strange that you wouldn't take no for an answer from this particular old man. Nevertheless, I thank you all for your very insistent confidence in me, and we'll see where this ends."

With so many of his colleagues retiring, Goddestreu has presided over a rejuvenation of the Cabinet he now presides over, with only a few old names being retained. Word around the new leader is that he intends to stay on, health allowing, until a successor from the next generation can take over the leadership of the HDV. With the Bürggraf's current popularity, however, it remains the question whether the natural party of government will be strong enough to resist the pressure of keeping him on for just another election. HDV Party Chairman Ruprecht von den Berg dismissed such concerns: "As with any leadership questions, they will be revisited at every election. Knowing the Bürggraf as we do, I'm sure he'll be the first to remind us when his time is up."
