Sekouo Sees Founding of New Party

The political landscape of Sekouo saw changes today following the formal founding of the Teikoku Kōmeitō (Imperial Government Openness Party); the party, while still in its formulative process has stated its positions on several issues, leading many pundits to describe it as economically Left of Center to Moderate Left, Socially Liberal and supportive of the reintroduction of the Imperial Throne under the Ishida Dynasty; the proposed monarch being Crown Princess Akatsuki Ishida.


Ishida Dynasty Re-Enters Politics

Following generations of private life (a result of the Imperial Abdication long ago) the Ishida Dynasty has re-entered politics.
While rumours continue to fly and the Dynasty remains relatively quiet on its positions what is known is that the Dynasty has retained its ancient system of Matrilineal Primogeniture and has connections to the newly founded Teikoku Kōmeitō.

Crown Princess Akatsuki Holds Speech:


Crown Princess Akatsuki Ishida held a conference earlier today spelling out many points and goals of the Ishida Dynasty.

"And with those formalities out of the way let us move on to some of the many topics at hand.
Firstly, to make things clear and prevent any misunderstandings or future rumours, the Ishida Dynasty is a major supporter of the TKK and while we will, due to our own connections to the party and our Dynasties history, hold noticable influence with the party, however the TKK should not be seen as the political arm or mouthpiece of the Dynasty - we're more than capable of expounding upon politics directly after all - but rather a political force that we support; I will be quite honest when I say that I fully expect that their will be times when the beliefs and positions held by the Dynasty are not those held by some parts of the TKK or the average TKK voter in general..."

"...now, to answer the question I'm sure half of the reporters here that have their hands raised for at the moment; yes Kenjiro is, in the technical sense an Ishida, specifically from the Yasutoro Junior Branch, however the marriage in question should not be understood to represent our opinions or positions in regard to any country or allegiance, simply put he is a person who fell in love with another person, that they both have a political pedigree really should be seen as secondary to that."

"...before we move on there is one area that I feel needs to be clarified, especially as I have no intention of having to answer it multiple times from people who do not do their research; the 'Ishida's' who supported the former Jiyū party were hardly the last, nor did they ever represent the Dynasty as a whole, rather they are descended from a male-line that held no official title or position of power within the Dynasty and should in no way be seen as being anything but pretenders who attempted to usurp the Ishida name and use their tenuous relation to the Dynasty to further their own political goals.
...yes, I do mean a minor male-line, do remember that the Ishida Dynasty is Matrilineal, the Mantle of Inheritance passes down from Mother to Daughter; the fact is that the age of the Dynasty means that their are a very large amount of Ishida's in the world -at last count, the Dynasty Census found that their were just under two-thousand people who could claim official descent from an Ishida descendant -and that's only accounting for those who hold official descent as prior to the Dynastic Reforms of the Empress Yuko only the Empress and her Children held official title, with any children born to the brothers or sisters of an Empress considered to not be part of the Dynasty, our best guesstimate when you include all of those from the Pre-Reform era as well as those having married into other Dynasties is somewhere around 16,000 people, though the vast majority of those would no more be an Ishida than someone who's ancestors were minor members of a Royal Family would be a member of the modern descendant dynasty."

TKK Leader Announces Major Policies and Ambitions of the Party:

"Firstly let me thank you all for being here, for those of you who don't know me, my name is Akeno Ishida no Raiden and yes, I'm an Ishida, and no, I'm not closely related to the Crown Princess, in fact I'm not even biologically related, my branch of the family ultimately descends from one of the more unique aspects of the Dynasty's past.
With that out of the way let's get right on to why we're all here and I'll do my best to answer everyone's questions."

"In terms of our general policy we espouse support for a regulated economic system, sensibly extensive social and civil rights, strong environmental protections, a strong military, though one with strong restrictions to prevent militarism and a secular state and society and a return of the Imperial Throne under the Ishida Dynasty."

"...admittedly however Foreign Policy is not an area we have any extensive positions on at the moment however one of our long term ambitions is the creation of a Community of Gao-Showa nations of some form."

"The position of the TKK on the monarchy specifically is that we support a Constitutional Monarchy, one in which the Empress or Emperor only intervenes in government -and when I say intervenes that should be seen as separate from espousing their own political opinions- in severe emergency situations."

"Now, I recall earlier someone asking me about the parties name; for the time being the party shall be officially known as the Teikoku Kōmeitō or TKK for short, however it is very possible that in the future the name may change to more aptly fit the party's beliefs."

Political Upheaval Strikes Sekouo:

Sekouo was thrown into political upheaval recently following the sudden dissolution of the 'Revival' party prior to the recent elections, leaving the TKK as the sole party fielding candidates resulting in the party winning all of the seats in the legislature.

Akeno Ishida no Raiden, the TKK party leader and now interim Prime Minister, held a speech laying out the political future of Sekouo earlier today:
"Firstly, let me say that I, like everyone else were shocked by the dissolution of 'Revival', however I'll be honest, I'm not complaining, whatever their reasons it has helped us immensely; with that said we are currently viewing this situation as an interim government; we have put together a Constitutive legislation package which we are voting on now, however with the exception of certain badly needed economic reforms we will not be passing any major legislation until after the passage of the Constitutive legislation and a subsequent election."

Constitutional Restructuring Complete:

The changes to the basic constitutional structure of Sekouo have been completed following a two year effort.
While the core changes, the restoration of the Imperial system, expansion of the legislature from 75 to 700 seats, changing the legislative term and ressurection of the 'True Flag' were passed a year ago it was only in the last month that the remaining constiutive legislation not included in the original legislative bills was passed.


Kokkai Continually Working on Legislation:

The Kokkai, the legislature of Sekouo, has been a busy place the last year as the TKK has continued to create and amend various laws following the post-Constitutional elections held a year ago.

When asked about the steady stream of legislation and what the Kokkai's vacation periods would look like Shushō Akeno Ishida had this to say: "We have a lot of work to do, Sekouo has seen many bad to terrible laws passed over the years and we intend to rectify the matter; assuming the TKK remain in power I suspect we'll spend the rest of the decade, maybe a bit more, working on changing and refining the laws.
As to vacations, well we're working on a work 3 weeks, take a week off structure and have no plans to institute a long vacation period for the Kokkai until we've finished."

Sekouo Hit by Second Electoral Upheaval in a Decade:

Sekouo has seen a second electoral upheaval within a decade following recent elections seeing the TKK being knocked into second place by the newly formed Jiyū Party of Sekouo (JPS); the election saw the JSP win 596 of the Kokkai's 700 seats while the TKK won the remaining 104.

While a formal declaration or announcement by the JSP has not been made, Shushō and TKK leader Akeno Ishida no Ishiyama had this to say;

"...Am I surprised, well honestly no, what you have to realize is the sheer depth of corruption and moneyed interests that has had so long to inundate Sekouo and the TKK is very much a threat to those very same interests, a fact made abundantly clear by the fact that very shortly after the election the JSP set about proposing legislation to roll back the large majority of the TKK's non-constitutive reforms and forced through a new budget and tax plan that destroyed the prior one and does nothing but remove taxes from the moneyed interests and leave the general population destitute and dependent on corporations who only care about making more and more money and now have next to no regulations that allow them to charge exorbitant fees or outright refuse service..."

"...well of course I'm not happy with the results, but I and the TKK as a whole will not let this be a mortal defeat, we will continue on, we will cement our beliefs and we will fight for Sekouo and for its people.."


Lourenne Trans-Dovani Highway Initiative OK'd by Foreign Minister:

In a recent interview Foreign Minister Anaya Singh has revealed that Lourenne has approached Sekouo about it's ambitious Highway system to link the countries of Dovani together; while the details are sparse Ms. Singh did say that the Sekouan government has given Lourenne the initial OK to link Sekouo into the initiative.

Sekouo To Accept Dankuk Immigrants:

Following a unanimously passed piece of legislation Sekouo has begun accepting immigrants from Dankuk, including potential immigration of members of the Dankuk royal family and government officials.

The legislation notably is meant as a base, with the TKK supporting further refinement to the law to disallow those guilty of crimes from being able to immigrate unless they may be tortured or killed by remaining in their he country.

The Imperial Government of Dankuk has set up its Headquarters in an Embassy in its Ally's Sekowo and has sought asylum from the Federation Regime in the Capital of Sekowo. In a new election, Andrew Kong is expected to be the New Yeonguijeong of the Empire. This comes weeks after the Royal Family were driven out by Mob violence within Dankuk perpetrated by a Draddwyr Supremacist movement and the Federalist Party who are likely backed by members of the Ryeo family.

In light of the recent events, and due to aging, Empress Tam-hee is abdicating her position as Taeyang with her daughter, Ishida Chin-sun, assuming the Throne as new Taeyang Empress. Ishida is the granddaughter of Ishida Ito IX of the Jiyu Party who served as the constitutional monarch in the centuries long absence of the Main Ishida Line associated with Teikoku Komeito who have recntly resumed their ancient role as the Celestial Empresses of Sekowo.
